FA7034 - Funding (Notes)

April 18, 2016

Notes on Monday 18th April 2016 - Funding


·       Set out a clear and comprehensive plan of action.

·       Think about funding opportunities.

·       27th June is the deadline for using the workshop and the hub (access to equipment).

·       I need to tell Mark what I want out of the last 4 weeks of this unit. He's there to help.

·       There's a hub at Commercial Road. They have cameras and lighting/sound equipment.


·       This session is about going out and being independent.

·       How do I go out and find funding to support the research I want to develop?

·       Think about how artists seek sponsorship for their work.


·       Skillset website - a good reminder of the prescriptive view of the industry.

·       Think about what a company values in terms of skills.

·       Amvbdo - relevant to MA students. They do an internship scheme.

·       Be aware of what's making it out to the corporate mainstream.

·       Think about the academic route (check out websites/online journals listed).

·       Before looking into funding consider more contemporary companies and emerging sectors that relate to animation.


·       An Artist in Residence grant? Through London Met or AUB? Or both?

·       Arts Council England - new opportunities all the time (keep checking website). There may be a way of 'touring' what you do. This could help with 'FREK' (quality of research of academics).

·       Sometimes go back to the original source (where that quote came from, etc.).

·       Look at the kind of comments that get through (end of the document).

·       Look at 'Crowdfunding'.

·       Look at museums and learning centres. Working with children? Teaching the philosophy behind animation ideas, as well as technique?

·       Broaden the cultural context within which you're working - go to museums, galleries, exhibitions - not just animation festivals.

·       Cartoon Forum - more mainstream, more corporate, about films themselves.

·       'Animate Projects' - a tricky website to navigate, but would be good for 'making of' films, e.g. behind the full size Gypsy caravan/Soho Create.
