Lighthouse Announces Animation Storyboarding Course

Following the success of a pilot scheme completed in 2007, Lighthouse has announced that they are accepting applications for their Animation Storyboarding course.
Under the expert guidance of course tutors Temple Clark and Giles Thacker, this is an opportunity for six storyboard artists or animators to develop a thorough understanding of traditional storyboarding practices and learn to use a range of digital tools to both facilitate the storyboarding process and to create basic animatics (moving storyboards) from their boards.
The course comprises a series of six Brighton-based residential workshops run over a period of four months. By the end of this period it is intended that participants will have diversified and enhanced their skills base and employment options, as well as producing paper and digital storyboards for inclusion in their portfolios.
Participants will also have the opportunity to work on a live feature-length animation project. Guided by the creative vision of the director and production team they will each work to produce storyboards and animatics of selected scenes.
The course fee is £600 per participant. This includes accommodation and subsistence during the workshops. Without the financial support of the Skillset Film Skills Fund and other course partners and sponsors, the cost would be £7,500 per participant.
The course is supported by the Skillset Film Skills Fund which is the largest fund in the UK dedicated to supporting film specific training. Over the past four years, the Film Skills Fund has distributed around £7 million in grants every year. The fund awards grants to organisations to create, deliver or facilitate film specific training.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on January 13, 2009.
