August is for Animation. We’re starting off with Paperbag Animator giving a talk at Token, Dublin’s new retro arcade that doubles as a bar and restaurant – the perfect setting to meet, get to know and high-score with other animation folk… and most importantly to prepare for HACKfest, the alternative animation that takes place at the end of August. Wanna have your work featured during the festival? There’s still time to submit by getting in touch with HACKFESTSHIT@GMAIL.COM. Next up, get down to Dublin Comic Con.
In the meantime, little elves are preparing for the first TDK meet-up. Keep your peeps on the FB for more deets, we’re coming for ya!
