Animation - Narrative Animation (MA)

Dermot Lynskey

My name is Dermot Lynskey and I’m a film-maker from Dublin, Ireland. My animated films have been shown in festivals such as: Annecy, Glas and Melbourne International Animation Festival. I graduated from the Film School of Ireland (2015) and The Royal College of Art (2020) both focusing on Animation. Before attending the RCA I worked as an animation editor on shows for Disney, Adult Swim and RTE. All I want to do is watch and create films so hopefully I can continue to do it forever. Cheers, G’luck.

I started the year with the intention of making a mixed media, stop motion animated film about a small section of Dublin on Halloween night. But after the closure of the studio spaces because of the COVID-19 outbreak, I was forced to put the film on hold and create an entirely new project. I decided this new project would be a surreal look at the impersonal nature and mundanities of modern communication, intended to be viewed in portrait mode on a smartphone.
