Here is the flyer for next Wednesday's showcase evening which starts at 1930 in the Kingston Hotel, Dún Laoghaire:
Here is a ltttle bit of background on the project:
The short animated films were created over the two week Pure Animation training
programme where participants developed and created animations based on
environmental themes related to the Pure Project, – illegal dumping, recycling, pollution,
climate change, etc.
Commenting on the completed shorts, Ian Davis of PURE stated:
‘Pure Animation has been a great success and all credit is due to the students and the
facilitators who were involved. They have created four really inspiring animations in
such a short space of time. Each one has an important environmental message but
they are also very funny, clever and inspiring shorts. Education and awareness is an
important element of PURE. We previously distributed a Primary School Teachers’ Pack
to all schools in the Dun-Laoghaire Rathdown area, but we always wanted to engage
with secondary schools and teenagers. Pure Animation is the perfect type of project
that provides students with information on important environment issues, but more
importantly, it gives students an opportunity to develop and explore their own ideas on
environmental issues and also learn about animation technology.’
During the two week training programme students created their own storylines and
characters under the guidance of experienced and professional animators and tutors.
Not only do the four films focus on environmental issues, the characters and landscapes
that feature in the animations were also created from recycled materials, from plasticine,
cardboard, plastic, tinfoil, fabric, old sandpaper, bin bags and lots of other recycled
I look forward to seeing you there!
All the best
