The Philippine Star
Knowledge Channel looking for animators
Fresh graduates, OJT-students and multimedia arts colleges/universities have a chance to work as volunteer-animators with the Philippines’ first and only curriculum-based channel.
They will collaborate with developers and animate Department of Education-prescribed textbooks and children’s stories which will be distributed to public schools nationwide on-air via Knowledge Channel, online through www.knowledgechannel.org, and offline through the Knowledge Channel Portable Media Library.
Knowledge Channel intends to develop 1,500 videos for primary grade beginning reading and math in the next three years to help improve student proficiencies in these subjects which are the cornerstones of higher learning. By mastering the basics of reading and numeracy, pupils will be able to better understand higher grade subjects and topics.
Chosen volunteers will draw storyboards, movements, character designs, and visually define, describe and distinguish characters. They will also create environment design including the setting or stage, physical appearance and ambiance of the environment where the characters move; or make images and objects move, and composite or combine multiple layers of visual elements into a single frame.
