The Future is Bright...and Yellow

February 26, 2018

 

Over the past 9 months, 11 young people, all from varied backgrounds, have spent some time with us at Yellow Mouse Studios. Each one has bought a different personality and energy to the studio in the time spent here, but all with one thing in common a love for animation and film.

 

During approximately 55 days (or 440 hours) we have witnessed infectious animation inquiry and technical development, which has led, we hope, to each one of these artists leaving us knowing more about how the industry works, and with a continued passion to develop an artistic career.

 

"During approximately 55 days (or 440 hours) we have witnessed infectious animation inquiry and technical development"

 

Throughout their time with us, we gave them an opportunity to use high spec equipment,  whilst exposing them to the very industry they have a passion for. We handed them a chance to solve real technical problems in a commercial environment, and they got access to industry expertise, which allowed them a platform to create some little snippets of magic. 

 

 

But it wasn’t all one sided! In opening our doors and sharing our knowledge, we got an introduction to some fabulously bright minds. They have challenged us look at our processes, and in doing so have magnified our understanding of what we do and how we do it.

 

 

 

We have been introduced to a tiny fraction of some of the brilliant young artists that reside in Devon and Cornwall. Who knows, one day they might choose to come back and see us again, or even ask us to help them in their own creative ventures. Either way, we have planted tiny seeds of nurture and encouragement all over the West Country, creating a local creative network . We’ve also got 11 young people sharing their experience with us, amongst their wider creative communities....it doesn't get much better than that!

Here's a little list we've compiled to introduce you to these artists, and what they accomplished in the short time we had them with us.….Pretty impressive we'd say! Just imagine what the Devon creative industry landscape could look like in the next 10 years if talent like this is inspired to flourish and grow!
