Six short films, six totally different takes on IDENTITY, this year’s festival theme.
With Digital Animation Production students at LIT CLonmel Digital Campus, they will be shown at the studio upstairs at South Tipp Arts Centre. The films are Moving On (Squawk Producktions), Biscuits (Loose Noose Studios), Paranormal Pals (Moody Mouse Studios), Blank (D-Leted Media), Atlas All Around (Comet Creations) and Wrath (Garfunkl Media).
The BSc (Hons) in Digital Animation Production at LIT Clonmel Digital Campus teaches students to design, create and animate for both 2D and 3D platforms such as TV, Film and Games. There is a focus on developing students’ core skills in the traditional disciplines of drawing, illustration and animation asset design with a strong emphasis on the principles of animation.
Building on this foundation, students continue to develop their creative voice while training in industry standard software, processes and technologies with the aim of bringing their ideas and concepts to life on screen.
