- WAT
ANIMATE NOW!

Schucks Media, CEO/Creative Director

The global animation industry is a multi-million dollar industry and is fast growing. We are seeing an upsurge in the demand for true authentic African stories and this has created great opportunities for us to tell our own stories ourselves through the medium of animation. While Nigeria is the creative content hub for Africa, our animation industry is still at its infancy and we have few animators.

This training is part of an effort to increase the number of animators we have on the African continent. With this training, we will familiarize trainees with Adobe After Effects which is an industry-standard software that is used for animation. The trainees will be walked through how to create and animate a simple animated character. With this, I will show the trainees that animation can be fun and rewarding. Animation is a beautiful medium for telling stories and passing information. There are great opportunities for employment and creative expression that is yet to be tapped and that is why I would like as many as possible to Animate Now.
