TOON BOOM EXTENDS TRAINING TO SOUTH AFRICA
|March 19, 2007
Little Black Dot (www.thelittleblackdot.com)
is now offering courses on Toon Boom Studio, Solo and Storyboard on a group or
individual basis. Courses can also be tailored to address special requests. The
studio is also working in close collaboration with Toon Boom towards the
development of a sustainable South-African animation industry. As of March
2007, Little Black Dot animators are considered some of the most experienced
Toon Boom professional users in sub-Saharan Africa.
The appointment follows Little Black Dot
founder/director/instructor Harry Ravelomanantsoa’s experience learning Toon
Boom’s software solutions and working in a studio environment.
"Little Black Dot truly proved to be the perfect partner to deliver
hands-on training on Toon Boom’s products to professionals, students, teachers
and enthusiasts,” says Joan Vogelesang, president & CEO at Toon Boom
Animation. “Their dedication to bring the South-African animation industry to
the next level was only paralleled by our firm intention to make the entire
African continent a major player in the global animation arena."
