Monday next, the 30th of April is the third get together between animation directors, animators and writers. The Screen Directors Guild of Ireland is allowing us to use their lovely Screening Room in Temple Bar again so if you would like to go, please let me know asap. It runs from 7-9, pretty informal, an excuse to meet and mingle between the species!

Derry here we come

PUNKY is among four nominees in the Celtic Media Festival's Children's TV awards section alongside two from BBC Alba(Scotland) and one from Wales so I'm hotfooting it to the lovely city of Derry this evening.

Regardless of what happens tomorrow aft, it's a great upbeat excuse to return to the city. But then you don't need much of an excuse to visit Derry... except the five hour EACH WAY by train. Which is why I'm breaking records to try and get as much material to the stage of printing so that I have plenty of work to entertain me en route!

In case you haven't heard and are interested in attending, I'm organising a third networking event for animators, animation directors and writers on April 30th. Same place, same time, but it's filling fast so let me know if you want to come! The group is now officially called the Creatives in Animation Network.

The Zebbies are coming up

...The awards night organised by the Irish Playwrights & Screenwriters Guild to celebrate Irish writers is on May 10th in The Sugar Club and the more of us can make it, the better the night will be.

It's always a good night, a chance to catch up with fellow writers and dress up just a little... (The dress code is Writers' Chic... You can see what this is in photos from last year on the Guild website. I MUST learn not to kick my leg up and across photos. It just doesn't look as smooth as it feels at that late stage of the night when photos seem to be taken!) )

Anyway, tickets are 15 euro for members and 25 for those who haven't yet paid subs this year...More details are at
