PP’s Pádraig Fagan is attending this week’s OFFline Film Festival in Birr Co. Offaly, hosting workshops along with our collaborators Chris McLoughlin and Conor Bent.

We also had a screening of our workshop video made in conjunction with Offaly County Council and the Arts Council which premiered on Thursday, and which you can view above! Featuring Sand Animation, PIxilation and Claymation!

We also helped our students create over 150 flip books during our time in Birr last month. You can view some photos from our trip here

Many thanks again to MIriam at Offline and Clare and SInéad at Offaly County COuncil for making it happen!

This kid was pretty cute. When I handed him back his book with the drawing inside he didn’t notice it at first, but when he did he tried handing it back to me, thinking I’d made a mistake. His desk buddy then whispered “that’s cool” and the kid got very sheepish looking ha

We made it back from our workshops in Birr Co. Offaly!We got to meet a lot of talented kids, but the highlight was probably when one of the student’s of St Brendan’s Primary School gave us a book he wrote to read during lunchtime.We did a little bit of fan art for one of the characters, and meanwhile he’s well underway on Vol. 2!The screening of the student’s work will be taking place at OFFline Film Festival, so we’ll be busy little panthers over the next week editing all the animation together. In the mean time, be sure to check out their programme for events and other screening events which are taking place!
