This year, as part of the Franco-German Cultural Fund, the cultural missions of Germany and France in Nigeria are organising two parallel workshops on film animation in Lagos and Abuja. This focus is in response to the boom in Nigeria’s Animation sector.In fact, a number of small structures and companies have been created within the last five years; a pointer to animation’s growing presence in the Nigerian society as observed in advertisements, short films, festivals, departments in cinema schools etc.
In this regard, following a series of discussions with young practitioners in this growing sector, the idea came up to organise a special workshop with international and reputed animation professionals. According to these young professionals themselves, creativity and dynamism are present in Nigeria, however many face specific issues regarding the technical aspects of animation.
