These courses should ensure students will have a greater prospect of securing full time employment in the animation sector on graduation”.

The evening courses, which are due to start on Monday 3rd October, will run for 10-12 weeks on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7pm. The courses will be designed and delivered by current Brown Bag Films staff members with expertise in each designated area.

Gareth Lee, Programme Leader of the BA (Hons) Animation at BCFE, said: “The success and rapid development of the animation industry over the last few years in Ireland has led to very specific staffing requirements for the animation studios.
