The country’s animation industry received a major boost after establishing a new partnership with Germany. An agreement has been made between Cape Town’s own world-renowned Triggerfish animation studio and the German-funded Jobs for Skills and Development in Africa program.

This happened at the end of the Ninth Annual International Animation Festival in the Mother City. The three-year Skills and Partnership Development Program is a technical assistance project of the German government. It aims to expose 10,000 school-leavers to the animation industry, endow six thousand creatives with improved portfolios and better market exposure, as well as create 200 additional jobs.

To tell us more, Refilwe speaks with Triggerfish Academy CEO, Colin Payne.

He discusses the courses offered at Triggerfish Academy Online like an animation editing course.

These are all things that are all freely available online that people can just access on our website.
