Want to get some real life training in an animation/film studio? 

Now’s your chance - Screen Training Ireland and Animation Skillnet are seeking applicants for the third iteration of the hugely successful graduate Traineeship Programme for Animation and VFX.

Last years programme saw 20 graduates placed in animation and VFX studios for up to 6 months, as well as receiving targeted and intensive training in specific skills areas throughout the training period. Off the job training included courses in Nuke, Maya, ZBrush, Toon Boom Harmony, storyboarding, professional practice, and visual storytelling.

The participating studios last year included ourselves alongside JAM Media, Cartoon Saloon, Boulder Media, Windmill Lane VFX, Screen Scene VFX, Egg Post Production, Piranha Bar, Igloo Animation, Kite Entertainment, Salty Dog Pictures, Monster Entertainment, Giant Animation, Kavaleer and VStream/Visual. 

The 2017/18 programme will take place over an intensive 6-month period, with a short intensive period of upfront training, followed by a mixture of on-the-job and classroom based training over the following months. Selected participants for the 2017/18 programme will once again be matched with leading animation, VFX and games studios and participate in tailored training through Animation Skillnet and Screen Training Ireland. The VFX and Animation Graduate Traineeship is a full-time programme for which a training allowance/bursary will be made available to selected participants.

Brown Bag Films are delighted to be one of the studios involved in this exciting programme again this year!


The deadline for applications is Friday 8th September 2017, so be sure to check out the Screen Training Ireland website for details on how to apply and get cracking!
