We are making an investment in Cambodia’s next generation of creative talent.
Our business is the backbone to our comprehensive training program. As a team, we use creative arts, critical thinking, and imagination to open doors for and with young Khmer creatives - big ones at that. For example, ithinkasia animation artists who were former trainees are working on internationally distributed projects such as 'Funan, the new people'. Funan is Cambodia's first produced animated feature film for international release. This film is ithinkasia's first international co-production, with more to come!
The flagship 2D animation curriculum is ESL based and taught via an online learning platform. 3D curriculum will start being taught in 2017. We have a strict policy of no client work for trainees - we want everyone to focus on acquiring skills and practice.
We select young local talent based on merit and socio-economic hardship and an assessment of base talent. We focus especially on girls. In this overwhelmingly male dominated industry, our girls are showing their peers that they have just as much, if not more, talent and drive.
