Major changes announced for Frameworks 2020, Screen Ireland/RTɒs animated short film scheme
25 Nov 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Oscar nominated Late Afternoon was part of the 2019 Frameworks scheme.
Applications are now open for the Frameworks scheme for animated short films, which is co-funded by Screen Ireland and RT.

The structure of the scheme has undergone a number of key changes for 2020, following consultation with the industry. Up to four Frameworks projects will be selected to go into production:

  • Up to two projects, which will deliver an animated short film to a maximum duration of 2 minutes, for a budget of €20,000. This scheme is seeking high-quality, concise, imaginative storytelling to be delivered by filmmakers with professional animation experience. Successful applicants who may require assistance in specific areas will be guided and supported by mentoring, facilitated by Screen Skills Ireland, the training arm of Screen Ireland.
  • Up to two projects, which will deliver an animated short to a maximum duration of 5 minutes, for a budget of €70,000. Priority will be given to applicants who apply with the support of an established studio in order to deliver their film to the specification, budget and quality that this level of scheme demands.

These changes to the structure of the scheme reflect the desire to support filmmakers with existing experience who may need extra mentoring in specific areas of technique or animation production. Dividing the scheme into two categories will also give room to established animators who wish to produce high-quality, larger budget short films with a studio attached.

Frameworks is a flagship scheme for the Irish animation sector and has produced award-winning films to a consistently high standard, including most recently Louise Bagnall’s Late Afternoon, which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Short in 2019.

You can find more information on Frameworks, the updated 2020 scheme guidelines, and how to apply here.

The deadline for applications is 1 pm, Friday 7th February 2020.
