Jason Sullivan will celebrate Sminky Animation’s 1st birthday at the 5th Fastnet Film Festival in Schull in May. At 12 noon on Sunday 26th of May come and join Sminky at The Village Hall for some fun and games. Currently studying Multimedia at CIT Jason began working under the pseudonym Andrew James and released his first animated short  “Awful Sad” in May 2012.

His works have achieved phenomenal success in an incredibly short space of time, receiving over 18 million hits on YouTube in 10 months. What was a way of Jason practicing his animation skills in order to complete his degree course has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon.

“A lot of the characters are exaggerated versions of people I know. I do all the voices and make them here in my apartment. I’m currently working for a TV production company called Sideline Productions on a new series called ‘Where the Sun Don’t Shine’.” Said Jason.

At Sminky Shorts’ 1st Birthday Bash at the upcoming Fastnet Film Festival there will be a special screening of some of the old favourites, and brand new unseen material, followed by a Q&A session and t-shirt giveaways.
