Short film competition launched by Tshimologong, Animation SA and AFD

Phoenix Durban

Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct and Agence Française de Développement (AFD), in partnership with Animation South Africa, have announced two exciting initiatives.
The first is the launch of a short film competition aimed at improving the development of animated films, and the second is the announcement of the 2019 Digital Content Hub intern skills development programme.
Professional script writers are to submit scripts of five minutes long and need to be authentically African with global appeal, while interested interns are encouraged to submit their CVs for a place in the development programme.
The winning script will have free visual development and storyboards done by the 2019 skills pipeline.
The selected short film scripts will have concept design and storyboarding developed and directed by art director; Lesego Vorster, a former Animation School lecturer and Les Gobelins Masters graduate.

Vorster will be assisted by Bokang Koatja and Jeani Varty two industry specialists in concept design and storyboarding who are currently training at Les Gobelins, one of France’s leading Animation Schools.
The curriculum for the internship is also being refined by experts from the same institution.
The Digital Skills Development Programme called the Skills Pipeline, is a seven month paid internship for 20 candidates.
Aimed at unemployed BEE graduates and talented artists in concept design and storyboarding, it offers experiential learning in visual development and storyboarding focused on animation. The internship runs from January and culminates on August 30, 2019.
Eligible candidates for the competition are required to submit a five-minute professional complete short film script for animation by December 5, 2018.
Selected candidates will be contacted directly and sent details about the interview dates and venue.
