KARANDASH Animation Studio enters new markets with the support of the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine. As part of the grant activity, the studio aims to discover new markets and strengthen relationships with international partners, enhance Ukraine's image among the global creative community, promote the company, its products and services, including increasing the number of provided services, and, most importantly, create new jobs.
“In such a difficult time for cultural institutions, it is very important to find new opportunities and markets for the development of the company. Thanks to cooperation and support of the USAID CEP, we have the opportunity to improve, achieve the required professional level and become an equal member of the international animation community. And this has already brought the first results — we have signed new contracts for the production of animated films with producers from Germany and Thailand,” - notes the founder of the studio Dmitry Belinsky.
The mission of the studio is to help directors, producers and creative agencies to create animation according to their ideas with strict adherence to all necessary rules and deadlines. With the help of the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine, the company has already created 50 licensed jobs for animators of various qualifications — from beginners to professionals, improved the process of receiving and transferring materials between the studio and clients, ensuring absolute transparency of processes for partners, and purchased new software, licenses and computer equipment.
“USAID CEP is glad to support KARANDASH Animation Studio in acquiring advanced software for improving Studio’s operational processes, creating new jobs for animators, and strengthening online collaboration capacity with international partners. We are confident that new equipment and software, purchased with USAID CEP support, will help our Partners to attract more international projects, increase their sales, and deliver internationally competitive product, promoting the image of Ukraine as creative destination,” said Karén Isahakyan, Emerging Industries/Competitiveness Team Lead at the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine (USAID CEP).”
