SYNTHÈSE – Pôle Image Québec is pleased to launch a new call for projects aimed at enriching its EXPERTS online platform by pursuing the development of continuing training for production studio workers who are members of the Quebec Film and Television Council (QFTC), La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec, Alliance Québec Animation and Xn Québec.
Through this call for projects, SYNTHÈSE wishes to financially support public higher education institutions for the development of asynchronous online training content in the visual effects, 2D and 3D animation, video game, immersive environments, large-scale digital installations and virtual reality sectors.
More specifically, these courses are designed for intermediate to advanced industry professionals who need to renew their digital creative or technical skills as well as their management skills, in order to keep up with the changing realities of the market or to reach higher hierarchical positions. Junior level courses may also be accepted as long as they are aimed at learners who wish to acquire complementary skills to their discipline and develop their careers. Please note that bilingual projects (French and English) will be required.
Projects submitted must be related to the themes identified in the table of training modules, presented in the appendix of the Guide to the call for projects. Project applications will be accepted until midnight on July 11, 2022. Decisions will be communicated no later than February 14, 2022. Successful projects must be completed and submitted for publication on the EXPERTS platform by October 21, 2022.
Production studios interested in developing training content are encouraged to partner with an eligible educational institution. Trainers can be industry workers, professors or lecturers.
