    European Commission and the « Cinema communication »

    The European Commission is backing a project which modifies the rules linking the awarding of state aid to spending on a regional basis. The economic and cultural stakes are considerable : as it stands, this project is a direct threat to existing aid measures with dramatic consequences for production and jobs.

    Round table : Employment in animation : taking stock and future developments

    The employment of young graduates is obviously a constant concern for trainers, but it becomes more acute in times of economic difficulty and regulatory uncertainty. The round table will consider the question of optimizing analysis and forecasting tools to ensure the best possible match between training courses and also the desirability of measures in favour of employment.

    Is it possible to develop training courses in alternation for animation ? Technical point, Pooling of resources, Which disciplines to offer in alternation

    Training in alternation has two great advantages : the families do not have to bear the financial burden of the courses ; it is an effective tool for entering the world of work. For all that, it is still regarded with some mistrust by the animation sector. The session will examine the reasons for this resistance and consider the skills most likely to benefit from training in alternation.

    Alternative production pipelines : challenges and constraints

    Several recent experiments – and others to come – indicate that open source software may become an alternative in production, which raises the allied question of the desirability of its integration into training courses. Blender, in particular, appears to be attracting interest beyond the community of partisans. The session will feature feedback from professional users.
