In mid-November the trainees on our Creative Producers Training Scheme (which is being run in partnership with A and O Studios and Cardiff Metropolitan University with funding and support from Creative Skillset’s Skills Investment Funds) met a high flyer in the animation world. BUT… we’ve been sworn to secrecy and can’t tell you who it is!
However, we can share with you what our trainees thought of the experience as well as a few hints and tips that they picked up along the way.
Huge congratulations from us all at Cyfle to our Communications Assistant, Aaron Wyn Jones on the birth of his and girlfriend Kim’s new baby girl who arrived yesterday, the 16th of November!
Welcome to the world Lily-May Jones, and good luck with all those nappies and sleepless nights Aaron!
A warm welcome to Owain Hughes from Amlwch, Anglesey, the lucky man who was chosen as Trainee Prop Master as part of the Cyfle on Set Training Scheme with Da Vinci’s Demons (offered in conjunction with BBC Worldwide and the Welsh Government)
