Training scheme to cash in on animation boom


SA award-winning animation industry had missed out on $70m-$100m worth of work in the past 18 months as the country had too few trained animators, Cape Film Commission marketing, communications and special 2010 projects manager Linton Rensburg said yesterday.

Animation Training finally arrives on Cape Flats. Described by many people as one of the Western Cape Film Industry's most ambitious projects to date, the first phase of what has become known as the Cape Film Industry's Animation Industry Development Initiative will kick off at the False Bay College in Khayelitsha on the 26th June 2009.
