FA7034 - Funding (Notes)

Notes on Monday 18th April 2016 - Funding

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Set out a clear and comprehensive plan of action.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Think about funding opportunities.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]27th June is the deadline for using the workshop and the hub (access to equipment).

[if !supportLists]· [endif]I need to tell Mark what I want out of the last 4 weeks of this unit. He's there to help.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]There's a hub at Commercial Road. They have cameras and lighting/sound equipment.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]This session is about going out and being independent.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]How do I go out and find funding to support the research I want to develop?

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Think about how artists seek sponsorship for their work.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Skillset website - a good reminder of the prescriptive view of the industry.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Think about what a company values in terms of skills.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Amvbdo - relevant to MA students. They do an internship scheme.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Be aware of what's making it out to the corporate mainstream.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Think about the academic route (check out websites/online journals listed).

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Before looking into funding consider more contemporary companies and emerging sectors that relate to animation.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]An Artist in Residence grant? Through London Met or AUB? Or both?

[if !supportLists]· [endif]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).

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Sometimes go back to the original source (where that quote came from, etc.).

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Look at the kind of comments that get through (end of the document).

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Look at 'Crowdfunding'.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Look at museums and learning centres. Working with children? Teaching the philosophy behind animation ideas, as well as technique?

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Broaden the cultural context within which you're working - go to museums, galleries, exhibitions - not just animation festivals.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Cartoon Forum - more mainstream, more corporate, about films themselves.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]'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.
