Animation Dingle has extended an invitation to Cécile Blondel to return to Dingle with a presentation from Gobelins – France. Cécile was a guest of our 2016 festival and presented a retrospective screening of works from Gobelins. This screening included shorts as well as ‘stings’ created for Annecy International Animation Film Festival. Out of this presentation came the commissions process from Animation Dingle for ‘stings’ from The Irish School of Animation, BCFE. Now 3 years on, we are commissioning both BCFE and IADT here at home to create stings based on our monster An Phiast. These commissions are now part of professional practice modules within the colleges.
We look forward to welcoming Cécile back to Dingle with another inspiring presentation.
