ZooLab is a joint venture between Animation College and Origami (branding and communications agency). It allows level 7 students paid work experience while they are studying plus ongoing work for college graduates.

‘It was important for us to create an atmosphere which allowed students to take their craft to an industry standard and work on real contracts which could contribute to their portfolios. Also due to the standard of work they are producing and the calibre of clients these are paid internships. We’re really excited about this initiative and the opportunity it presents our students with.’ – Adam Berry Animation College Director.

‘Partnering with AC in the Zoolab venture gives our clients and other commercial partners the real opportunity to deliver fresh and exciting animation. It’s all about adding new thinking with fresh new minds to deliver work which excites our clients customers. We see this as a long term venture which could deliver some spectacular outcomes’ – Chris Knox Origami Director.

Zoolab puts students and graduates in a real world situation with great briefs and real deadlines, but with the added support of a studio manager and lecturer(s) to ensure a really professional output. This is a great balance that is really hard to come by. So far Zoolab has produced infographics, 2D animation, motion graphics and 3D animation. The hope is to increase the offerings to include digital illustration and even APP development in the future.

Students and graduates are loving the experience and chance to flex their creative skills, earn money and deliver some outstanding work for clients.
