The Bridge programme is now looking for new/recent graduates (animation/games/vfx) and older graduates (animation/games/vfx) to take part in an intensive 8 week programme (between June and August) that aims to place graduates in studios and offer them onsite and offsite training.
It is proposed that between 25-30 participants will be selected for the 2016 programme. Participants must be either recent graduates from Animation, Games and VFX related courses or older graduates who are not working at the moment and who are trying to break into the industry.
Participants will be placed in participating studios for the 8 weeks and will receive both on-the-job training and additional training through Animation Skillnet and Screen Training Ireland.
Key Benefits of ‘The Bridge’:
*Participants will get to work on live projects supervised and mentored by studio professionals.
*Participants will have the opportunity to participate in specialised training sessions with industry professionals through Animation Skillnet and Screen Training Ireland for no additional cost
*Participants who are in receipt of a social welfare payment can remain on social welfare over the course of the 8 weeks (40 days) but they must get approval from their social welfare office in advance.
*Participants will receive an additional nominal bursary amount to cover out-of-pocket expenses over the 8 weeks.
Recent graduates or unemployed graduates from animation, games and VFX related courses who wish to participate in ‘The Bridge’ 2016 should apply by Monday 23rd May
