IADT launches new Certificate in Production Management for Animation
10 Jul 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Animation at IADT
IADT has launched a new Certificate in Production Management for Animation in association with Animation Skillnet and Screen Skills Ireland via Springboard+.

Developed with our industry partners in Ireland and the state agency with responsibility for skills development for the screen sector in Ireland, Screen Skills Ireland, this new fourteen week certificate course is available via Springboard+.

Learning from industry leaders, Ian Hamilton of Elk Studios is the lead tutor and will be supported by Lindsay Adams of Daily Madness and Stephen Fagan. 

This certificate offers the skills to manage animation productions from concept development to final delivery - and everything in between, providing learners with a command of the practical management of industry standard digital animation productions, primarily 2D animation but also 3D and VFX.

This course presents the opportunity to gain and develop practical production skills specifically for the animation industry, to keep pace with the ever-changing technology and practices and its use in animation production.

Rónán Ó Muirthile, Head of Department of Film & Media at IADT explains:

“It is clear from our dealings with industry that there is a dearth of production managers and coordinators focused on Animation. Here we are responding to that need and with the help of Screen Skills Ireland and Animation Skillnet we have developed a programme that responds to that gap. We are building capacity and educating future industry leaders.”

Gareth Lee, Manager at Screen Skills Ireland, added:

“As the Animation and related sectors have grown in Ireland, an obvious need for production managers has arisen to oversee productions through pre-production, production and post-production. This programme will go a long way towards addressing this skills gap and will support the continued expansion of the sector.’

This course is free for eligible job-seekers and offered at a significantly subsidised rate of €108 for those in employment via the Higher Education Authority Springboard+ initiative. 


Springboard+ is open to eligible job-seekers, home-makers and individuals in employment.
