Guinness Storehouse Animation Students’ Exhibition now showing
Work by final year, students of the BTEC Higher National Diploma in Classical & Computer Animation from Ballyfermot College of Further Education in Dublin, is on exhibition as part of The Guinness Storehouse Experience.
The Animation students visited the Old Guinness Brewery site at St. James’s Gate where they produced visual research based on locations associated with the original brewery. They visited some of the oldest surviving buildings dating back to the time of Arthur Guinness himself. These included: the Tunnel under James’s Street, the Vat Houses which were built as part of the Brewery expansion around 1798, Arthur Guinness’s family home at No.1 Thomas Street and the Guinness Powerhouse, now Roe & Co.
The Guinness Archive facilitated the second part of this project which required the students to produce Character Designs based on the diﬀerent trades and jobs which were commonplace at the brewery. The resulting Character Designs were based on historical and photographic research from the Guinness Archive.
This work is now on exhibition at the Guinness Storehouse as part of the Guinness Storehouse Experience.
Tickets can be purchased on-line.
