Who and What is the National Talent Academy for Animation ?

The National Talent Academy for Animation (NTAA) is a new national initiative of Screen Ireland, managed by Animation Ireland.

The NTAA is here to support and nurture new and emerging Irish based creative talent, with a particular focus on diverse and regional talent. We offer a range of opportunities nationally as you move forward in your animation career, from project development, production, storyboarding, design and animation to VFX and editing.

Through our opportunities, we aim to:

  • Connect with, encourage and support regional and diverse talent
  • Support Irish based creative talent and create educational opportunities in all areas and at all levels
  • Develop an NTAA community to promote and encourage ongoing creative collaboration.

Above all, we want to engage with YOU and offer you the support you need to progress in the animation industry.

There is a wealth of creative talent in Ireland, however we recognise that many face barriers to entry and to progressing in the animation industry, in particular those based in rural parts of Ireland or those from more diverse backgrounds. Whatever your age, however you identify, whatever your background, the NTAA welcomes you and looks forward to working together to break down barriers and provide opportunities to creative talent from all regions and communities in Ireland.
