Coisceim Visit to Cartoon Saloon Animation Studios, Kilkenny
On Wednesday 13th December students and their SNAs and teachers visited Cartoon Saloon Animation studios in Kilkenny. Here they were given a guided tour of the studio which is world renowned for producing such films as the “Book of Kells” and “The Song of the Sea” feature length animation films. They also produced a new film entitles “Breadwinner” which is on current release in USA and Canada and will debut in Ireland in May 2018. The film has Angelina Jolie as its executive producer and has been nominated for a Golden Globe in the past week. Everyone greatly enjoyed their visit and some would like to see themselves working in this area when they finish school.
