The Animation Bursary

The scheme is now closed as we raise money to run it again.

We look for talented animators who have a film idea and are ready to go, we offer:

£500 in cash
4 months use of our studio
Mentoring support from professional animators
Free equipment hire, tech support and help with distribution


The film currently in production is Unspoken by Laura Keer
Her creative blog is here

Our last film is The Elephant in the Room by Sarah Wickens


The scheme is aimed at animators who are just starting out on their career so you need to have made an animated film before. We will provide support via our technicians and an industry mentor who will meet with you once a month. There is space in our media studio if you need it or we can lend you equipment to work elsewhere.

You will be able to choose a mentor from our list of animator friends. They are all professional experienced animators working in the industry.

This scheme is funded by The Fenton Arts Trust, our charity with help from our colleagues at LIAF
