The countries animation industry has received a major boost after the establishment of a new partnership with Germany. A deal was struck between Cape Town's very own, world-renowned Triggerfish Animation Studio and the German-funded, Employment for Skills and Development in Africa Programme.
This happened at the conclusion of the Ninth Annual International Animation Festival in the Mother City. The skills and development programme of the three-year partnership is a technical assistance project of the German government. It aims to expose 10,000 school leavers to the animation industry, empower six- thousand creatives with enhanced portfolios and market exposure, as well as to create 200 more jobs.
