The Foundation Academy for Animation is a unique 12 week training programme focussing on 2D animation. You will be introduced to the animation production process, receive training and hands-on experience of the key job roles within the industry and have the opportunity to animate characters using industry standard software and receive training from the leading animation studios in Northern Ireland.

Animation is a major growth area in the creative industries in Northern Ireland and there is a high demand for skills and local talent in animation. Several of our leading animation companies, Sixteen South, Jam Media, Paper Owl and Dog Ears are partnering with Nerve Centre to establish a career pathway into the industry.

This year the Academy is offering self contained modules that will cover what is involved in the production of 2D animation. To make the best use of these modules you will be able to either work on your own personal project, or the Academy can supply the necessary assets to help you complete each of your chosen modules.

You will have the opportunity to select modules in:

  • - Introduction to the Academy.

  • - Scriptwriting for Animation.
  • - Art Direction and Design.
  • - Character Design.
  • - Storyboarding and Animatics.
