Thanks to everyone that came out to the AnimAl: Animation Alliance screening tonight!
Amazing to see such a range of mediums and subject matter coming out in the one year! Congrats to Rory Byrne (And Maps And Plans), Seamus Malone (Windmill Lane), Aoife Doyle (Pink Kong Studios). Louise Bagnall (Cartoon Saloon) and our very own Carol Freeman!
Here are some snaps from the QnA session with the filmmakers. chaired by Kristina Yee, independent animator and writer, and Darragh O’Connell of Brown Bag Films!

Above you can see some work by Eimhin made during recent lifedrawing classes he hosts at A4 Sounds.
A new 6 week course starts on the 4th of September, every Monday from 7-9PM, €50 for all 6 classes: http://www.a4soundsshop.org/product/life-drawing-course-6-weeks
All skill levels are welcome, from never picked up a pencil before to rusty old master. The key focus of this course is to engender a curiosity in the world around you, using drawing as a tool to aid understanding.
Over the duration of the course you will work on observational drawing skills using exercises such as:
Gesture & Acting, Blind & Bamboo Stick Drawing, Contour & Silhouette work, Perspective & Proportion point referencing, Tone & Colour, as well as Sculpture. There will also be some more experimental aspects, exploring deliberate distortion of the figure and stylisation of form.
If you’d like to drop in for individual classes, at €10 per class, you can book yourself in using this link: http://www.a4soundsshop.org/product/life-dawing-class
We just spent the day sorting and archiving all the traditional work from An tEarrach Thiar, Eimhin’s contribution to the upcoming Cúl an Tí project, helmed by Ross Murray & Nicole Storck at the Cartoon Saloon!
We currently have A4 & A3 scene illustrations from the film available to purchase from our online shop: LINK
An tEarrach Thiar was originally written by Máirtín Ó Direáin, with musical interpretation by Lisa Hannigan, Kíla & Fionnuala Ní Chosáin.
We look forward to announcing the screening times!
