Animation: the next wave

Although Melbourne is currently dominating Australian animation, in recent years Western Australia’s Film and Television Institute (FTI) has been laying the educational ground work for a new wave of animators. The Centre for Advanced Digital Screen Animation (CADSA) was established in 2001 in conjunction with a broad coalition of industry partners. The Centre was “conceived and implemented as an animation production training incubator” in which students receive theoretical and technical training, as well as hands-on experience making animation productions. Several projects have already been completed by students at the Centre, including the film Desperado 2185 (Tim Beeson, 2003) and the game Children of Sivara. OnScreen will be watching future developments at CADSA with interest.
