Aspiring animators in West of England offered skills bootcamp to ignite their careers

NextGen Skills academy has teamed up with A Productions and Aardman Animations to offer aspiring animators a free 10-week Accelerate in Animation Skills Bootcamp to accelerate their career prospects.

The course has been created in partnership with our studio and Aardman to create industry-vetted content and expert guidance. It will give students a deeper understanding of the animation industry, enhance their technical skills, help them acquire real experience of the animation pipeline and build an impressive portfolio of work.

Those taking part will work collaboratively on an industry brief, working as a remote animation studio to craft a captivating short film in just ten weeks. Participants will benefit from the wisdom of dedicated tutors and animations professionals through masterclasses and studio insights.

“We are super excited to be collaborating with NextGen Skills Academy and Aardman on this bootcamp opportunity. At A Productions we are committed to fostering and nurturing diverse talent in the animation industry and this bootcamp represents a great way for us to contribute to the development of new talent in the region” explains Duncan Fraser, our head of production.

The Accelerate in Animation Skills Bootcamp takes place between January and March 2024 and the deadline for applications is Thursday 14th December.
