twofour54s Cartoon Network Animation Academy felicitated its third batch of graduates at a ceremony held in the presence of H.E. Noura Al Kaabi, CEO of twofour54. The graduates presented their animated short projects reflecting the values and culture of the Arab world, as part of twofour54s mission to drive the development of creative Arabic media content.
The Middle East is now attracting work previously subcontracted to studios in the Far East and India. This recent growth is fuelling a large demand for animators across all sectors and industries.
H.E. Noura Al Kaabi commented: As the animation industry in our region continues to flourish, twofour54 is proud to be contributing to its development by providing the local industry with highly skilled and talented young animators. A wealth of careers are available to good animators in the entertainment, publishing and corporate sectors and as the demand for Arabic content grows in our region, so too will the opportunities for animation graduates. I urge all Emiratis with a creative touch to consider enrolling in the Cartoon Network Animation Academy, which also offers special grants to UAE locals.
CNAA graduates praised the accessibility of the Academys exceptional training facilities, and the tailor made courses that suit the market needs in the region.
