Excited? We are!

First question came from Laura Robinson: What do you look for in junior animators?

Damien O'Connor, Storyboard Supervisor in the studio, offered up this reply: a showreel of your best work and heaps of enthusiasm.

Second question came via the OFFSET team, asking if we were excited about #OFFSET2014?

Simple answer? YES!

We're huge fans of NoBrown Press and Richard Mosse - looking forward to catching up with so many of the speakers.

Conor Steenson asked Who is doing, in your opinion, the best work in animation currently that ISN'T Brown Bag?

Creative Director, Darragh O'Connell got busy answering: There are so many in TV, including Karrot Entertainment's Sarah and Duck, Cartoon Saloon's upcoming Puffin Rock and there's Titmouse, Guru, and 9 Story Entertainment to name a few.

But we couldn't stop ourselves. Once the conversation started some of the team chose more favourites - including Boulder Animation, Oktober Animation in New Zealand and the world class Laika and Aardman studios.

Any excuse to include some Laika love:
