Screen Skills Ireland Partners with ACE Producers for Animation Special
08 Oct 2019 : News Desk
Ace Producers partner with Screen Skills Ireland
The 4-day workshop will take place from 18th-22nd March, 2020.

Screen Skills Ireland has announced that it will partner with ACE Producers as it broadens its perspective with a workshop that focuses primarily on animation production. In close collaboration with Screen Skills Ireland and Animation Dingle and support from other key Irish partners – Screen Ireland, BAI, IDA and Animation Ireland – the 4-day workshop will be held in March 2020. The ACE Animation Special is a hands-on workshop for experienced producers who want to diversify their activities to include, and/or deepen their knowledge of, developing and producing long-form/feature film animation production for an international audience (cinema, broadcast or streaming).

ACE Producers’ director Jacobine van der Vloed sees the new workshop as a valuable addition to the programmes that ACE has to offer: “With this initiative, we will be enabling producers within our network and beyond to strengthen their skills in the animation field. Through our collaboration with the Animation Dingle festival, Screen Skill Ireland and other partners, we are offering an opportunity to broaden producers’ networks and understanding of animated content.”

Gareth Lee, manager at Screen Skills Ireland, added:

“Screen Skills Ireland is delighted to team up with ACE Producers, Animation Dingle, and other key partners to offer this fantastic skills development opportunity. By providing producers with the required skills and knowledge to diversify into animation, this workshop will make an important contribution to the health of the animation industry in Ireland and abroad, as well as support the production of exciting, new animated content.”

Maurice Galway, founder and festival director of Animation Dingle is thrilled to welcome ACE Producers to Dingle: “I know this rich area will offer much inspiration to their work here on the peninsula.”

16 producers will be selected for the workshop, preferably with a long-form/feature-length animation project at concept stage. Focusing primarily on the creative and financial aspects of animation production, the ACE Animation Special will also offer sessions on the development process, co-producing, international distribution, audiences and business strategies. The workshop will also include one or more sessions on the different approaches needed for animated TV series as well as offering the producers a chance to work on their projects, have meetings with animation experts and network with their peers.

WORKSHOP DATES: 18th – 22nd of March 2020

LOCATION: Dingle, Ireland

ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS: To be an owner, partner or associate of an independent film/animation/ TV production company; to be an ACE member or producer with a similar level of experience; to have a long form or feature length animation project at idea or concept stage; but producers without a project are also welcome to apply.

FEES: €1,500 (€1,250 for ACE Network Members). The fee covers full board, accommodation and training. Travel costs are not included.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 28th November 2019, 16 places available.
