About us

We have over 10 years of production experience being one of the first batch of animators that were trained at Ice Animations. We have versatile experience of working on different kinds of projects that included character based episodic animated series, creature based live-action hollywood feature/tv films, tv commercials, corporate videos to name a few.

In the recent times, the major growth of animation industry in Pakistan has brought an extensive need of new animators. Thus we have opened an animation academy that focuses purely on teaching animation principles and techniques, to prepare animators ready for production rather than focusing on just teaching how the software works.
Our goal is to train animators, make them ready for producing industry standard animation so that they can instantly work anywhere in the world and help them make an impressive show-reel.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ENROLMENT

The training programme at Black Sheep Academy focuses completely on the artistic development of a student rather than teaching bundles of software.

Throughout our years of experience, we have come to realize that softwares are just a tool to further help the artists convey their message.

Hence we focus mainly on teaching the grammar of motion and traditional Principals of Animation introduced  by Disney Animators referred by Walt Disney as the “Nine Old Men”.

No matter what style of animation, be it hand drawn, 3D or retro experimental animation, these 12 principals are essential to creating a great masterpiece. 

While knowledge of softwares and tool will be useful for the students to further express themselves, Proper knowledge of art and extensive practice is what makes a good artist. and this is what we focus on.
