Made in NY Animation Project



Made in NY Animation Project is a partnership between NEON, The Animation Project (TAP) and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME). The program offers participants the opportunity to engage in storytelling, gain technical skills in computer animation, and qualify for paid internships in this burgeoning field, and aims to create learning opportunities in digital animation for at-risk and underserved youth across the city, opening doors to careers in sought-after areas of the entertainment industry.

TAP sessions are led by a professional animator and a creative arts therapist. Participants in the program will work as a team to create original, computer-animated videos, while developing the social, emotional and career skills necessary for success. Participation also offers the opportunity for people to progress through further tiers of learning, which include incentivized and stipend-based technical and professional opportunities.
