The National Talent Academy for Animation hosts first Animation Fair at TUS Athlone

On May 25th, over 100 students and graduates from TUS Athlone, Clonmel and Limerick gathered for a day of workshops, panel events, screenings, portfolio clinics and one-to-one meetings with some of Ireland’s leading studios. It was a fantastic opportunity for the next generation of animators to hear from, and network with, industry leaders.
