  2. 'The Last Train' is an animated short movie that was made as part of The Animation Hub, a collaboration between staff and students of the Irish School of Animation (ISA) at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE), staff and students of Trinity College’s Graphics, Vision and Visualisation Group (GV2) and the recently established animation studio Giant Creative (http://www.giant.ie), set up by BCFE graduates.

    The Animation Hub, which received support from the Irish Film Board and Science Foundation Ireland, ran for 3 months over the summer in 2011 and involved Giant Creative working with animation and computer science students to create a one minute animated short fusing motion capture techniques with naturalistic 3D character animation.

  4. It's a phenomenon that began in Dublin and spread far and wide. Yet the girls who wear pyjamas as daywear, all day everyday, aren't interested in grabbing attention.

    With many tender and often hilarious moments, 'Pyjama Girls' traces the explosive micro-dramas of teenage life against the bleak backdrop of Dublin's inner city flats.
