This article is one of a series of short interviews with the keynote speakers at Coláiste Dhúlaigh’sKeyframe event. Over the last five years, we’ve seen a series of animation masterclasses by industry professionals aimed at CD students.

This year the event has expanded to include not just animation experts, but representatives from a variety of media industries, including; sound designadvertisingtv productionphotography, and documentary.

Keyframe is a chance for current students to get an insight into the industries they’ll soon be entering. The event is also a chance for Dhúlaigh alumni to return and show what they’ve been doing since they left. We at the college are proud to say that 11 of this year’s speakers are past pupils.
