Monday, February 2nd, 2015

SONG-OF-THE-SEA-2-640x426Screen Training Ireland and Animation Skillnet are seeking applicants for a pilot one-year Traineeship Programme for Animation and VFX.

The Traineeship programme aims to partner 10 trainees with 10 animation/VFX studios for one full year. Over the course of the programme, the trainee will work in-house in the studio where they will receive on the job training. In addition to on-the-job training, the trainee will receive additional tailored training through Animation Skillnet and Screen Training Ireland.

The curriculum for the year of training is developed in close consultation with industry, and will combine training in core skills for animation/VFX with specialist and studio-specific knowledge and skills.

The traineeship will be divided into two main fields, both of which will be further divided into two training pathways:

1. Animation

Training Pathway 1: 2D
Training Pathway 2: 3D

2. VFX

Training Pathway 1: Compositing
Training Pathway 2: CG

The programme may also offer a parallel Technical Direction for VFX and Animation pathway, subject to demand.

All pathways will intersect where there are commonalities in terms of training needs, and all trainees across all four tracks will participate in core modules.

The Traineeship programme will commence in March 2015.

A training allowance/bursary will be made available to selected participants.

Participating studios for the pilot programme include:

Brown Bag Films

Cartoon Saloon

Giant Animation

JAM Media

Kalaveer

Piranha Bar

Screen Scene VFX

Telegael

Windmill Lane VFX

Applicants should apply via email with a CV and showreel and/or portfolio to Screen Training Ireland and Animation Skillnet at traineeship@screentrainingireland.ie with “Animation/VFX Traineeship” in the subject header. Applicants should identify the skills area/training pathway they are interested in pursuing, e.g. VFX: Compositing, 2D Animation, etc. Applicants will be evaluated and shortlisted for interview by a panel of industry experts, in consultation with Screen Training Ireland/IFB/Animation Skillnet. Only those who are shortlisted will be called for interview.

Deadline for applications is Friday 20th February 2015.

Short films to shoot in Limerick next month

A trilogy of short films will be shot in Limerick next month as part of a training programme for local filmmakers.

The initiative by filmmakers’ group Behind the Scenes in partnership with Limerick City of Culture sees Limerick filmmaker Gerry Stembridge (About AdamScrap Saturday) working as writing and director mentor.

Cinematographer Patrick Jordan (PentecostVolkswagen Joe) will shoot the three shorts and composer Patrick Cassidy (CalvaryHannibal) will supervise the music.

Casting is currently taking place and interested parties should contact: filmlimerick@behindthescenes.ie with headshot and résumé. Training crew positions will also be arranged and those interested should contact: behindthesceneslimerick@gmail.com.

Stembridge said: “There will be three short films made, all to be shot in Limerick. They will be written, directed, crewed and acted by people living in or from Limerick. The story idea is really creative and interesting and will also showcase Limerick as a location.”

Project Manager Ronan Cassidy added: “This is a very exciting time to be involved in film in Limerick. It is an incredibly ambitious project to be undertaken at local level.

“We are working on a limited budget, but I know from the enthusiasm of all involved we are going to produce something very special.

“The whole idea is to have three films that can be used separately or put together, but that might appeal as a half-hour programme.”
