In association with the  Cardiff Animation Festival, we present a masterclass with animation director Lorraine Lordan. Lorraine joins us online live from Ireland to share insight into her varied and international career in animation. Lorraine will talk to us about how she has been able to balance making a short film with lead roles on features, and shares what she has learnt along her impressive career journey in a conversation with Abigail Addison, ScreenSkills Animation Production Liaison Executive.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session via the chat function.


For much of her career Lorraine Lordan has worked at renowned Irish studio Cartoon Saloon, including as animation supervisor on the Annie-nominated TV Series Puffin Rock, sequence animation supervisor on Oscar-nominated The Breadwinner and assistant director on the new Puffin Rock feature film. Her work in animation has taken her around the world, to studios in the Czech Republic, Germany, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Cambodia and the UK.

This event is supported by the ScreenSkills Animation Skills Fund with contributions from UK animation productions and is presented in partnership with Cardiff Animation Festival.
