 Kilkenny animation studios

OPEN DAY

April 8th, 2017

 

Kilkenny Castle

We want you to come and work with us in Cartoon Saloon and Lighthouse Studios.

We love animation! Not only that but we love Kilkenny too!

This is our invitation to you to come and see what Kilkenny (and both animation studios) has to offer you!

Here’s how the day will go….

At 11am  meet with us in the IMRO award winning Set Theatre where we will introduce you to Cartoon Saloon and Lighthouse Studios

After this, take a walk over John’s Bridge and down the canal walk into the grounds of Kilkenny Castle and surrounding park, it is also home to the amazing Butler Gallery (which housed our award winning Song of the Sea exhibition). From here we will bring you across the street through the Design yard; home to the National Craft Gallery of Ireland as well as a number of thriving craft and design businesses where it is possible to watch skilled          craftspeople at work.

From here we will bring you through to the walled gardens of Butler House, a secluded beauty in the middle of two bustling streets (it’s also a pretty amazing shortcut to Cartoon Saloon & Lighthouse studios from the Castle!)

All this and it’s still only 12noon!

At 11 Patrick Street, meet with the heads of Cartoon Saloon & Lighthouse Studios to talk about upcoming roles and planned productions

We want to talk to people about all roles – every position along the pipeline from concepts to animation to compositing, production assistants to managers. We also want to meet with people about studio administration and IT positions.

Although we will be meeting with you all individually from 12noon to 6pm, this part of the day will only take up 30 mins of your time. The rest of the day will consist of pre-booked events like:

  • A taste of Kilkenny - let Kilkenny artisans showcase their skills in food and drink production  
  • A tour of Kilkenny historic sites from Wolf Walker-era inspirations to Round Towers and Medieval museums.
  • Come see Cartoon Saloon HQ at The Maltings. It will be empty but at least it proves we don’t work (most) weekends!
  • And then the stuff we can’t book; the shops, pubs, restaurants, buskers, street crafters and vendors.

Want to know more about the boring (but important) stuff?

At our “green room” in 11 Patrick Street, we will have people on hand to talk about renting in Kilkenny (really good value compared to other counties), what it means for you to work in Cartoon Saloon & Lighthouse Studios as well as some other key information when thinking of moving to Kilkenny.

After all of this we hope you will come for a beer and some (more) food to end the day hanging out with all the crew from Cartoon Saloon and Lighthouse Studios.

Phew...that was a lot!

One last step to make it real - fill out this form and let us know you’re coming
