Colmcille 1500 Digital Animation Project

To commemorate the 1500th anniversary of the birth of Colmcille, the Nerve Centre Creative Learning Centre (CLC) will work closely with five schools in Meath, five in Derry, five in Donegal and five in Sligo to create twenty Colmcille Folklore digitally animated stories.

The Nerve Centre will work closely with the designated teachers from each school, providing training on how to create a digital animation with their class, from the initial idea, creating assets to animating and editing.

The sessions will be a mix of teacher training and classroom support via Zoom. The focus is to train the teachers to deliver animation sessions within their class thus upskilling teachers leaving a lasting legacy and tool and resource which they can use year on year in their teaching. Teachers will have access to a Google Classroom, which is specifically designed for this project. Resources will include, video tutorials (how to animate and edit), pdf, resources as well as assets they can use within their projects.

The Nerve Centre in-house animator and designer will edit the final animations ready for an online screening on December 7th for all schools participating in the project.
