Animation Production Initiative 2009

The Media Resource Centre (MRC) is now calling for applications for its Digital Animation Production Initiative. Sponsored by the South Australian Film Corporation, the initiative will provide emerging South Australian animation teams with the training, professional mentors, resources and cash to make a low budget short animation in a real industry environment.

The successful teams must use digital technology and processes to produce and deliver their projects and the finished films will be distributed using an innovative digital distribution model providing the filmmakers with the potential to make some returns on their project.

Applications close 4pm Monday 18 May 2009.

With the support of an experienced Supervising Producer and mentoring companies, the successful applicants will each receive $4,500 cash and access to $2000 worth of MRC equipment and facilities to produce a short digital animation of any style (2D, 3D or other computer animation 1-3 min in length). Working with the mentor companies will provide a wonderful opportunity for filmmakers to learn new new skills and build relationships with potential employers.
