Screen Training Ireland and Animation Skillnet Digital Production Mentoring Fund
15 Dec 2017 : Nathan Griffin
The Screen Training Ireland/Animation Skillnet Mentoring Fund for Digital Production is now seeking applications.

This initiative offers professionals at all levels and in all digital disciplines an opportunity to avail of mentoring supports or to engage a mentor at key stages in their professional development.

The mentor or mentoring arrangement can be local or international and the mentoring can take a number of forms, from a defined number of consultations/calls over a certain period, to international work placement, to shadowing or face-to-face career clinics.

Mentoring can work in different ways, depending on the upskilling requirements, structure, and focus.  Applicants may consider:

 

  • Business Mentoring (emerging or mid-career producers/business owners): A number of meetings/consultations over a defined period with an animation/VFX business leader.
  • Creative Mentoring: Different mentoring interventions based on mentee needs and mentor availability, e.g. consultation; portfolio/showreel evaluation and feedback; shadowing; international work placement.
  • Technical mentoring: Focused mentoring to enhance specific technical skills, e.g. shadowing; international work placement; one-to-one tuition.

 

If you are interested in accessing mentoring supports, please apply here.

Deadline for applications is Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
