Calling all UK based Blender artists! Fast-track your 3D Blender animation skills and gain studio experience with a free 4-week remote learning experience from 28th February to 25th March 2022.

Participants learn asset-centric workflows and essential soft skills while training as a remote animation studio using the skillsXchange platform, developed by Tom Box, Co-Founder of Blue Zoo Animation Studio. Blue Zoo are a multi-BAFTA winning studio who produce compelling stories through beautiful animation for outlets such as Nick JR, CBeebies, and Netflix, alongside commercial and long form.

A participant on the first bootcamp said:

"I experienced a lot more than I'd ever have expected and the support was amazing! The bootcamp 100% increased my confidence to apply for an animation job, it gave me an insight and loads of confidence that once my showreel is up to scratch I have a chance at gaining employment. I'd love another go!"

Apply now to:

  • Fast-track your existing 3D Animation skills development in a virtual studio environment using Blender
  • Learn asset-centric workflows from concept to delivery with industry tutors and mentors
  • Attend masterclasses with Blue Zoo artists
