We are looking for people with a desire to tell stories, who have a strong visual sense and the skills to direct a production team.
Whilst we take applicants from many varied backgrounds, the course is ideal for someone who works in the animation industry and has reached a stage where they want to develop their own work and become a director.
All applicants must show a passion for animation through the work they are developing.
Part One: Digital Portfolio Submission
All applications must be accompanied by the following supporting materials:
- A Portfolio of Animation/Moving Image with a maximum running time of 20 minutes. Your submission must include a complete film created by you. It can be either a personal or commissioned project, but it should be more than simple exercises done on a previous course.
- A Portfolio of Still Images. This can include illustrations, sketchbook work, digital artwork, photography of puppets and sets that you have made or anything you think will suitable for your application.
Part Two: Induction Workshop and Interview by invitation only
Because the course focuses on collaboration and teamwork we have a workshop as a part of the interviewing process.
The workshop gives us all the chance to meet in a working environment, and for you to learn about storytelling for short animated films. We provide extensive feedback on your work and candidates find the workshop very useful even if they were unsuccessful in getting on the course.
