Open Labs NIIT Rolls Out Free Animation Workshop To Revamp The Animation Industry


June 23, 2021, 10:01 a.m.

There is a gradual uprising of animators from the African continent. Some countries like South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria, and Kenya are championing animation for recreational, educational, architectural, and advertisement purposes.

Presently, South Africa's animation industry consists of 29 production companies, with a few major studios including Triggerfish Studios, Clockwork Zoo Animation, and Sunrise Productions. While still a young industry compared to other parts of the world, it is still booming. We, however, cannot precisely say the same for Ghana. Yes, there are talented animators in Ghana, but the country cannot confidently account for success in this regard.

Against this, Open Labs NIIT calls out to people interested in acquiring animation skills to enroll in its FREE Animation Workshop on June 26th, 2021.

Formerly known as NIIT Ghana, Open labs NIIT are technology centers across West Africa to improve career outcomes and digitally upskilling Africa’s youth. They have trained over 30,000 students in Ghana, Liberia & Sierra Leone since 1999 and are expectant to do the same with their free animation workshop.

The animation workshop has been designed and structured to nurture the trainees’ skills or equip them with skills and prepare them for the most demanding jobs.

According to the Academic Lead, Stephen Datsomor, the animation workshop is Open Labs’ effort to revamp the animation industry and promote animation in Ghana.

Trainees will be awarded participatory certificates and an opportunity to enroll in the company’s immersive curriculum at a discount.
