Netflix, Gobelins offer African scholarships
Global streamer Netflix and French visual arts school Gobelins have partnered to offer scholarships to six African animators in a bid to strengthen the pipeline of new animation talent on the continent.
The selected students will be admitted to Gobelins’ Master of Arts in Character Animation and Animated Filmmaking course. The two-year course, taught in English, is designed to enable students to reach a professional level in a multicultural environment.
The curriculum includes advanced courses in 2D and 3D character animation, scriptwriting, directing and storyboarding.
The scholarships will cover the tuition fees for the entire length of the programme, as well as a contribution to the cost of living in Paris.
Applications close on March 2. Those selected will be announced at the end of April, and classes will commence in September.
