The funding will enable us to offer 3 animation bursaries to up and coming animators. It will also enable us to develop the project and approach other sponsors to take the initiative on into the future. Each bursary will last 4 months and will be based on creating a new piece of innovative work.
It ran from 10:00 AM, 6 December 2012 to 5:00 PM, 19 December 2012

Funding for animation has almost completely disappeared in the UK and yet it is the most innovative of artforms. The bursaries will be aimed at animators who are at the beginning of their career which is the most crucial time to nurture and encourage them if they are to continue to work in this field. We receive lots of requests from animators to help them with their work, in particular requests for studio space and equipment and support for making films.
The project will give the participants increased confidence in their professional ability, an increase in their marketing and business skills and help them produce innovative and entertaining films. This proposal will also give added value, as The Film and Video Workshop will be contributing a significant amount of in-kind match funding. This will be in the form of project management, networking and long-term support.
