The National Film School Launches Summer Animation Academy

The National Film School Launches

2012 Animation Academy

The National Film School at IADT has announced its first professional
summer Animation Academy, in association with Boulder Media, and with
the financial support of Bord Scannán na hÉireann / The Irish Film Board.

Tailored to the needs of the thriving Irish animation sector, the 2012 NFS
Animation Academy – Introduction to Adobe Flash 5.5/Professional
Animation – will be a bridging course between college and industry for
20 participants.

Donald Taylor Black, Creative Director of the National Film School at
IADT, said “We’re absolutely delighted to deepen our strong links with
the animation industry in Ireland, by introducing the NFS Academy. Rob
Cullen and Boulder have been extremely enthusiastic about this project
from the beginning and other companies have assured us of their co-
operation in the years to come. Thanks also to the Irish Film Board for
their continued support to The National Film School”.

It will take place over four weeks from Monday, 9 July until Friday
3 August on IADT’s Dun Laoghaire campus. The NFS Animation
Academy will take the existing skills, strengths, and interests of recent
undergraduates, graduates at ordinary and honours degree level, as
well as animators currently working in the industry who want to re-train
or redirect their career into a more specialised industry focus of Flash
Animation. It will cost €300.00 per person.

Tutors will include: Robert Cullen, Creative director – Boulder Media;
Paul O’Flanagan, Animation Director Boulder Media; Gillian Comerford,
Animation Director Boulder Media; and Damien Byrne, Animator and part
of the Animation team at IADT.

Application Procedure:
Please apply online to Barbara Carraher at the Adult and Continuing Education Office, IADT

experience included.
