In 2017 ACMI received funding from Creative Victoria to run the pilot project, Key Frame, under the Virtual Creative Professionals in Schools education partnership. The funding provided the opportunity for creative professionals at ACMI to work on a collaborative project with a rural school with the main mode of communication being virtual conferencing.
We worked with the Horsham College Year 10 cohort over 9 weeks which involved more than 15 virtual conference sessions; a visit to Horsham; 2 teacher professional learning sessions and an extensive student production camp at ACMI. The students were grouped into production teams and over the course of the term they worked to create 2D animation projects using the software Moho (Anime Studio) Debut 12.
