Triggerfish Animation Studio, based in Cape Town, is actively seeking more African animators. They have launched a digital platform called “Triggerfish Academy” in partnership with the Goethe-Institut and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development. This platform aims to guide African students in learning animation and picking up the craft.
Triggerfish has recognized a shortage of local animators in South Africa and has had to outsource talent from Europe. They are looking to address this issue by providing opportunities and resources for aspiring African animators. In the past, Triggerfish has partnered with Disney for initiatives like the Story Lab, which invited aspiring animators from across the continent to submit their ideas for development and mentorship. This initiative aims to empower African creators and showcase their talent on a global scale.
