Africa’s biggest toon shop, Cape Town-based Triggerfish Animation, has propelled free online training goals for trying animators: Triggerfish Academy. Available through the site and YouTube channel, the course has contained a progression of a series of short videos that cover different career options, standards of animation, introduction to storytelling. These are complemented on the site with tests and activities.
The course, intended to enable those interested to decide if the animation is the correct way for them, was made by Tim Argall (animation chief on Triggerfish’s third feature, Seal Team). Argall tapped probably the most splendid stars of the South African animation industry for the underlying course, including Malcolm Wope, character architect on Netflix’s initially animated unique from Africa, Mama K’s Team 4 Annike Pienaar, presently working at Illumination in Paris on Sing 2; Daniel Snaddon, co-chief of the multi-grant winning BBC adjustments Stick Man and Zog; Faghrie Coenraad, lead dressing and craftsman on the Oscar-assigned Revolting Rhymes; and Triggerfish head of generation Mike Buckland.
Njangiru also highlighted the opportunities for animation outside the traditional film industry, within fields like advertising, app and web design, architecture, engineering, gaming, industrial design, medicine, and the motor industry, not to mention growth sectors like augmented reality and virtual reality.
Njangiru said- “By the end of working through this course, you’ll have all the background you need to know whether an animation is a good choice for your career,”.
Triggerfish, in association with Goethe-Institut and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, has propelled Triggerfish Academy, a free digital learning stage for anybody needing to see increasingly about the profession openings and how to begin in the field of animation.
