With four of its former animation students nominated for Academy Awards earlier this year, the spotlight is firmly fixed on Ballyfermot College of Further Education. This week the colleges current animation graduates held their Animation Graduate Showcase 2010 in the Irish Film Institute and the Comic Cast was there to report on the event. We talk to students Nicola Hyland, Ray Johnson and Leo Crowley as well as Gareth lee, the head of the animation degree course. We also meet up with storyboard artist Stephen Byrne who graduated from the college last year to see the life of a graduate one year on. Enjoy!
