FNQ Screen Industry Bootcamp Offers Animation and Games Development Mentorships


L-R: Mentors Liz Ballantyne, Art Lead at Gameloft, and Chris Bennet, Animator at Ludo Studio

Screen Queensland has partnered with Screenworks to launch the FNQ Screen Industry Bootcamp, comprised of two mentorships to support and ignite the careers of an emerging animator and a games developer, from Far North Queensland.
Early-career FNQ screen industry practitioners are encouraged to apply for this unique, six-week, bootcamp-style mentorship, that will showcase their talent, build their experience, and make connections with key screen industry companies, including Ludo <https://screenqueensland.cmail20.com/t/r-l-jkmlthy-owiljiyht-r/>Studio, the multi-Emmy® award winning creative studio behind hit animation Bluey, and Gameloft <https://screenqueensland.cmail20.com/t/r-l-jkmlthy-owiljiyht-y/>, a leading global publisher of digital and social games.
Kylie Munnich, Screen Queensland CEO, said the FNQ Screen Industry Bootcamp was the first program to commence as a part of the Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland Far North Queensland Screen Production Strategic Plan, released in late 2019.
“Mentorships can be transformative experiences and we know that the participants in this bootcamp are in good hands, with the regional expertise of Screenworks, and industry heavy weights Ludo Studio and Gameloft, guiding the way,” Ms Munnich said.
“It’s all about providing a real-world experience that will give participants practical skills, industry contacts and above all confidence to create their own screen projects and build their careers in the industry.”
Ken Crouch, Screenworks CEO, said the program would provide an extraordinary opportunity for early-career regional practitioners from FNQ to connect with and learn from highly-accomplished industry professionals.
“We are excited to give the FNQ practitioners the exposure and unique access to experiences which will enhance their skills and impact their careers,” Mr Crouch said.
Mentors Liz Ballantyne, Art Lead at Gameloft, and Chris Bennet, Animator at Ludo  <https://screenqueensland.cmail20.com/t/r-l-jkmlthy-owiljiyht-j/>Studio, will each choose one mentee to work with them in their respective areas of expertise.
The two selected mentees will each receive bespoke, industry briefs and targeted feedback from their mentor over the six-week ‘bootcamp’ period, that will culminate in an opportunity to travel to Brisbane where they will shadow their mentor in their professional environment.
Applications for the FNQ Screen Industry Bootcamp close at 5pm Friday 19 June 2020 and are currently planned to start in early July.
