We actively enable affordable access to resources and skills development opportunities through our Studio Production Support Program. This program allows eligible artists the opportunity to book TAIS studios at significantly reduced rates.
Those eligible include students, those who are unemployed or underemployed (in low-income jobs), or employed as a non-profit arts worker. Also eligible are exploratory animation production projects in the early stages of development that have no funding support attached (grants or sponsorship).
Artists are invited to submit a project proposal for an animation project for production using TAIS studios and resources at drastically reduced rates. Project timelines can be for a minimum of 1 week and a maximum of 4 months. All applicants will be asked to explain why TAIS Self-Funded rates are cost-prohibitive for them at this time.
Your application will be reviewed internally by TAIS Studio Production Committee within 1-2 weeks of the deadline. You will receive results within 3 weeks. Those selected for the subsidized rates offered through this program must be TAIS Studio Members in order to accept the offer.
