They are designed to enable graduates from animation, games, VFX and other related courses to better attain a job with Boulder Media or another animation studio, and to add to a portfolio of work each week.

The deadline for applications is Friday May 12th. There are sixteen places available for each bootcamp, and while participants are able to apply for more than one, they are asked to apply only for those for which they have a genuine interest and the relevant skills.
