ADRODDIAD Y CADEIRYDD Chairman’s report

Mae hwn yn ddiwydiant sy’n newid yn gyflym iawn, ac mae ganddo angen gweithlu sy’n barod i ddelio â her y byd newydd aml-lwyfan, yn ogystal â meddu ar y sgiliau i lunio cynnyrch creadigol crefftus sy’n gyson â disgwyliadau gwylwyr teledu a ffilm draddodiadol. This is an industry undergoing very rapid change, and it needs a workforce which is ready to face the challenge of the new multi-platform world, as well as possessing the skills to deliver well-crafted, creative content consistent with the expectations of viewers of traditional television and film.


Mae gofyn bod yna ddrws agored i’r diwydiant i bobl o gefndiroedd amrywiol, ac mae angen rhoi cyfle i’r rhai sydd yn y diwydiant ar hyn o bryd i uwchraddio eu sgiliau’n gyson.

There has to be an open door into the industry for people of diverse backgrounds, and those already in the industry need to be given the chance to update and enrich their skills regularly.

Mae Cyfle wedi bod yn weithgar ym mhob un o’r meysydd hyn, gan dderbyn clod uchel a chyson am safon yr hyfforddiant mae’n ei ddarparu a’i drefnu. Yn bwysicach na dim, mae yna gydnabyddiaeth fod hyfforddiant Cyfle yn berthnasol iawn i’r byd gwaith a bod safon yr hyfforddeion sy’n dilyn y cyrsiau yn gyson uchel. Unwaith eto, mae’n braf nodi’r canran uchel o’r rhai fu ar gyrsiau newyddddyfodiaid Cyfle sy’n llwyddo i gael gwaith yn y diwydiant yn dilyn eu cwrs.

Cyfle has been active in all these fields, receiving high praise for the quality of the training it provides and arranges. Most importantly, there is widespread recognition that Cyfle training is highly relevant to the world of work and that the quality of its trainees is consistently high. Once again, it’s good to be able to note the very high proportion of those following Cyfle new entrants courses who succeeded in gaining employment in the industry at the end of their courses.

Yn 2009 fe fydd y drefn o ariannu hyfforddiant gan y diwydiant yng Nghymru yn newid, gyda chyfraniadau ariannol aelodau TAC ac S4C bellach yn cael eu cyfeirio at y Fframwaith Hyfforddi o dan adain Skillset Cymru. Fe fydd yna her newydd i Cyfle, wrth i nifer o’r swyddogaethau y bu’n gyfrifol amdanynt yn y gorffennol gael eu gweithredu gan Skillset Cymru a Thasglu’r Fframwaith. Swyddogaeth Cyfle o hyn allan fydd darparu hyfforddiant i gyfarfod â gofynion y diwydiant, gan gynnig am gyllid ar gyfer ei gynlluniau trwy system dender. Bydd adeiladu ar y berthynas gydweithredol dda gyda Skillset Cymru yn bwysig, fel hefyd y bydd y gwaith o adnabod gofynion cwmnïau unigol, gan anelu at greu atebion hyfforddi ymarferol a chost effeithiol i sefydliadau sydd â disgwyliadau sy’n medru amrywio llawer. Fe fydd dealltwriaeth arbennig Cyfle o’r angen sydd yng Nghymru am dalent sy’n medru gweithio drwy’r Gymraeg a’r Saesneg, yn sylfaen bwysig i’r gweithgareddau yma.

2009 is the year when the mechanism by which the industry in Wales funds training will change, with the financial contributions made by TAC members and S4C now being channelled to the Training Framework under the auspices of Skillset Cymru. For Cyfle there will be new challenges, as several of the core functions for which it has traditionally been responsible now transfer to Skillset Cymru and the Framework Taskforce. Cyfle’s role henceforth will be to provide training which meets industry needs, bidding for funding for its schemes through a tender process. It will be important to build on the excellent relationship with Skillset Cymru as well as to continue to identify the needs of individual companies, with the aim of creating practical and effective training solutions for organisations which may have a wide range of expectations and priorities. Cyfle’s particular understanding of the importance in Wales of talent which can work through Welsh and English will underpin these activities.

Mae’r llwyddiant i greu gwarged ariannol bychan yn 2008 yn galonogol er mwyn wynebu her y dyfodol yn hyderus ac fe hoffwn ddiolch i Iona a’r tîm am flwyddyn o weithredu egnïol ac effeithiol ac i Fwrdd yr Ymddiriedolwyr am eu cefnogaeth gyson.

The success in delivering a small financial surplus in 2008 is a heartening basis from which to face the challenge of the future with confidence and I would like to thank Iona and her team for a year of energetic and efficient operation and the Board of Trustees for their consistent support.

Adroddiad Y Prif weithredwr Chief Executive’s Report Ar y 24ain o Hydref, 2008, bu Cyfle’n dathlu 21 mlynedd o hyfforddiant yn y diwydiant. Roedd y noson yn tanlinellu ymrwymiad arianwyr hanesyddol Cyfle – S4C, TAC, Llywodraeth Cynulliad Cymru, Skillset a Skillset Cymru – i hyfforddiant, ynghyd â chyfraniad unigolion o fewn y diwydiant fel hyfforddwyr, aelodau o grwpiau llywio a phwyllgorau hyfforddi. Elfen allweddol arall, wrth gwrs, yw staff Cyfle, a wynebodd her 2008 gydag arddeliad, brwdfrydedd a llawer iawn o waith caled. On 24 October 2008, Cyfle celebrated 21 years of industry training. The evening underlined the commitment to training shown by Cyfle’s historic funders – S4C, TAC, the Welsh Assembly Government, Skillset and Skillset Cymru, and the contribution of individuals within the industry as trainers, members of steering groups and training committees. The other crucial component, of course, is Cyfle’s own staff, who embraced the challenges of 2008 with passion, enthusiasm, and a lot of hard work.


Prif thema gweithgareddau craidd Cyfle yn 2008 oedd ein cynlluniau arloesol i ddarparu hyfforddiant aml-lwyfan ac i ddatblygu hyfforddiant mewn meysydd blaenoriaeth newydd:- Ymddiriedaeth a Chydymffurfiaeth; Amddiffyn Plant; Ymarfer Proffesiynol mewn Animeiddio Digidol ac Arweinyddiaeth a Rheolaeth. Cyflwynwyd hefyd gyrsiau newydd ar gyfer cynhyrchwyr ffilm a chwrs oedd yn hwyluso mynediad pobl anabl i’r diwydiant. Llwyddwyd hefyd i gynyddu’n darpariaeth ar gyfer pobl lawrydd ac i barhau i gynnig hyfforddiant trwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg. Bydd y cyfnod o 2009 ymlaen yn creu sialensiau pellach. Bydd y dulliau traddodiadol o ariannu’n newid mewn hinsawdd economaidd ansicr, ac wrth i’r diwydiant ddod i delerau â realaeth newidiadau cyflym y byd digidol. Mae yna bwyslais sy’n cynyddu’n gyflym ar ddatblygiad proffesiynol parhaus, yn arbennig felly mewn meysydd megis technoleg ddigidol, syniadau creadigol, a sgiliau busnes a rheolaeth. Rydym hefyd yn nodi angen cyflogwyr am welliant yn y sgiliau sylfaenol sydd gan y gweithlu yn ein diwydiant ni, fel mewn sawl diwydiant arall. Maes arall pwysig i’w ddatblygu yw’r un sy’n cael ei adnabod fel “llythrennedd yn y cyfryngau” - arf hanfodol i alluogi unigolion a chymunedau i ddatblygu sgiliau ar gyfer bywyd a gwaith yn yr oes ddigidol. I gloi, rydym yn cymeradwyo ymrwymiad Llywodraeth y Cynulliad Cenedlaethol i’r iaith Gymraeg ac edrychwn ymlaen at ymwneud yn gadarnhaol gyda’i Strategaeth ar gyfer Addysg Trwy Gyfrwng y Gymraeg a gyhoeddwyd yn ddiweddar. Mae angen i Cyfle fod yn greadigol, arloesol, â’i nod yn glir wrth ymateb i’r sialensiau a’r cyfleoedd hyn. Fe wnawn hyn trwy weithio’n agos gyda Skillset Cymru a’i Fframwaith Tasglu Hyfforddi a thrwy gynnal ein perthynas gref gyda’r cwmnïau annibynnol a’r darlledwyr yng Nghymru. Fe gydweithiwn gyda sectorau addysg uwch a phellach yng Nghymru a datblygu ein rhaglenni estyn allan i gymunedau. Byddwn yn bwrw ymlaen yn egnïol i ddatblygu’n rhaglenni hyfforddiant aml-lwyfan arloesol, sy’n canolbwyntio ar anghenion y diwydiant, a gyda golwg ar y farchnad fyd-eang yn ogystal â’r farchnad leol, ac fe fyddwn yn sicrhau y bydd staff Cyfle ei hun yn cael y cyfle i ddatblygu eu sgiliau hwythau er mwyn ateb y gofynion hyn.

The key themes of Cyfle’s core activities in 2008 were our innovative multi-platform training provision, the development of training in new priority areas such as Trust and Compliance, Child Protection, Professional Practice in Digital Animation and Leadership and Management, as well as new courses for emerging film producers and the targeting of disabled people into the industry. We were also able to increase our provision for freelancers and continue to offer training through the medium of Welsh. 2009 and onwards produces further challenges, as traditional funding processes change, against a background of an unstable economic climate, and an industry that is coming to terms with the realities of a fast changing digital world. There is a rapidly growing emphasis on continuing professional development, particularly in areas such as digital technology, creative ideas, and business and management skills. We also note the requirement of employers for improved basic skills amongst employees within our sector as in many others, and the importance of media literacy as an essential tool to enable individuals and communities to develop life and work skills for the digital age. Finally, we applaud the Welsh Assembly Government’s commitment to the Welsh language and look forward to engaging positively with its recently published Welsh Medium Education Strategy. Cyfle needs to be creative, innovative and highly focused in its response to these challenges and opportunities. We will do this by working closely with Skillset Cymru and its Training Framework Taskforce and by maintaining our strong relationships with the independent companies and broadcasters in Wales. We will collaborate with the Higher and Further Education sectors in Wales and develop our ‘outreach’ programmes to communities. We will forge ahead with our innovative, multi-platform training programmes, focused on industry needs, with a view to the global as well as the home market and we will ensure that Cyfle staff are given the opportunity to develop their own skills in order to meet these challenges.

Stiwdio Hyfforddi Animeiddio Digidol Digital Animation Training Studio


Mehefin 2007 — Mehefin 2008

June 2007 — june 2008

Hyd: 12 mis Nifer: 6 o bobl

Duration: 12 months Places: 6 people

Cwblhaodd chwech o hyfforddeion o Orllewin Cymru a’r Cymoedd y Stiwdio Hyfforddi Animeiddio Digidol yn 2008. Roedd y cynllun yn rhedeg mewn cydweithrediad â chwmnïau animeiddio sydd gyda chomisiynau gan S4C, sef Calon, Dinamo a Griffilms. Nod y Stiwdio oedd darparu hyfforddiant i safon y diwydiant drwy gyfuniad o hyfforddiant stiwdio a lleoliadau galwedigaethol yn lleol ac yn rhyngwladol. Roedd Bwrdd Llywio gyda chynrychiolwyr o’r diwydiant lleol, yn cwrdd bob chwe wythnos i lywio’r hyfforddiant.

Six trainees from West Wales and the Valleys completed the Digital Animation Training Studio in collaboration with S4C’s commissioned animation companies Calon, Dinamo and Griffilms. The aim of the Studio was to provide industry level training through a combination of studio based learning and local and international vocational industry placements. The Studio was steered by a group of local practitioners who met every six weeks.

Roedd wyth mis cyntaf y cynllun yn cael ei redeg yn y stiwdio hyfforddi, lle’r oedd yr hyfforddeion yn derbyn hyfforddiant arbenigol i ddefnyddio pedwar prif becyn meddalwedd animeiddio’r diwydiant: Toon Boom Studio, Flash, After Effects a Maya. Cwblhaodd yr hyfforddeion gyfanswm o chwe phrosiect unigol a phrosiect grwˆp yn ystod y cyfnod hwn mewn ymateb i friffiau wedi eu gosod gan y diwydiant. Dilynwyd hyn gan leoliad gwaith am fis gyda chwmni animeiddio o Wlad Thai, Imagimax Studios, ar gynllun cyfnewid diwylliannol i rannu gwybodaeth ac arferion gorau. Daeth y cynllun i ben ym Mehefin 2008, wedi i’r hyfforddeion gwblhau gwaith ar leoliad am dri mis gyda stiwdios animeiddio lleol yng Nghymru. Roedd yr hyfforddeion yn derbyn lwfans hyfforddi wythnosol trwy gydol y cynllun. Ers cwblhau’r hyfforddiant, mae dau hyfforddai wedi cael swyddi llawn amser mewn 2D gyda chwmnïau animeiddio lleol ac un arall bellach yn cynllunio gwaith animeiddio ar gyfer cwmni graffeg symudol. Mae tri o’r hyfforddeion yn gweithio ar gytundebau animeiddio llawrydd.

The initial eight months of the scheme was spent in the training studio, where trainees received expert tuition in the use of the four main animation industry software packages: Toon Boom Studio, Flash, After Effects and Maya. In total, six individual projects and a group project were completed by the trainees during this period in response to briefs set by industry. This was followed by a month long industry work placement with Thai animation company Imagimax Studios, a cultural exchange to share knowledge and best practice. A three month work placement with local animation studios in Wales concluded the scheme in June 2008. Trainees received a weekly training allowance throughout the scheme. Since completing the training, two trainees have secured full-time work in 2D with local animation studios, one trainee now designs animations for a motion graphics company, and three trainees are busy with freelance animation contracts.

Yr hyfforddeion hyn oedd ymhlith y cyntaf o hyfforddeion Cyfle i weithio tuag at Dystysgrif Ragarweiniol City & Guilds ar gyfer y Diwydiant Clyweled.

The scheme started with an intensive month long induction course at the Cyfle training centre in Cardiff, followed by vocational, on-the-job placements on film productions UK-wide and external short courses.

Duration: 12 months Places: 5 people

Yng Nghyfrifiad Cyflogaeth Skillset 2006 tynnwyd sylw at dan-gynrychiolaeth unigolion o gefndiroedd croenddu a lleiafrifoedd ethnig yng ngweithlu’r cyfryngau newydd a theledu. Roedd y cynllun llawn amser hwn yn rhan o gyfres o gynlluniau mewn cydweithrediad â BBC Cymru, Boomerang, S4C a Skillset er mwyn ymrafael â’r diffyg yma.

In 2006, Skillset’s Employment Census identified the need to address the under-representation of people from black or minority ethnic backgrounds within the new media and television sector. This full-time scheme was part of a series of collaborations with BBC Cymru Wales, Boomerang, S4C and Skillset which aimed to address this under-representation.

Dros gyfnod o 12 mis, derbyniodd pedwar Hyfforddai Cynhyrchu Aml-Lwyfan ac un Hyfforddai Camera, hyfforddiant yn canolbwyntio ar ofynion y diwydiant. Ar gyfer yr hyfforddeion aml-lwyfan, roedd hyn yn cynnwys saith wythnos o hyfforddiant mewnol gan weithio i friff pwrpasol ar gyfer Doctor Who a Torchwood. Aeth yr hyfforddeion ymlaen i ddefnyddio’u sgiliau newydd ar leoliad gydag adrannau amrywiol yn BBC Cymru a gyda chwmnïau cynhyrchu yng Nghymru. Daeth y cynllun, oedd yn darparu lwfans hyfforddi wythnosol, i ben ym mis Medi 2008.

Over a period of 12 months, four Multi-Platform Production Trainees and one Camera Trainee received industry focused training. For the multiplatform trainees, this included a seven week, in-house training period, which involved industry briefs for Doctor Who and Torchwood. The trainees then went on to use their newly acquired skills on work placements with various BBC Cymru Wales departments and with selected production companies in Wales. The scheme, which provided trainees with a weekly allowance, finished in September 2008.

Ar ddiwedd y cynllun, sicrhaodd dau hyfforddai gytundebau gyda BBC Cymru, mae dau yn derbyn hyfforddiant arbenigol pellach ac mae’r Hyfforddai Camera wedi bod yn gweithio’n llawrydd.

Labordy Hyfforddi Animeiddio Digidol 1 Digital Animation Training Lab 1


Mawrth – Mai 2008

March — may 2008

Hyd: 3 mis Nifer: 6 o bobl

Duration: 3 months Places: 6 people

Labordy Hyfforddi Animeiddio Digidol oedd yn cynnig lwfans hyfforddi ar gyfer chwech o bobl broffesiynol o Orllewin Cymru a’r Cymoedd. Roedd hwn yn gynllun peilot wedi’i gynllunio er mwyn darparu hyfforddiant ar lefel uchel i animeiddwyr 3D a 2D mewn cynhyrchu gwaith digidol, gan ddefnyddio meddalwedd Flash, Maya ac After Effects yn bennaf. Roedd yr hyfforddiant yn digwydd mewn amgylchedd stiwdio ble roedd yr hyfforddeion yn cydweithio ar gysyniad creadigol, o’r sgript i’r sgrin. Roedd y diwydiant yn arwain y cynllun, gyda hyfforddwyr arbenigwyr yn darparu’r hyfforddiant, yn cynnwys Rick Villeneuve, Matt Leonard a Tim Allen. Erbyn diwedd y cynllun, cynhyrchwyd Lloer Leidr, sef animeiddiad pum munud o hyd a all gael ei gyflwyno i wyliau ffilmiau byrion, ynghyd â’r fersiwn Saesneg, Moon Pirates.

A paid, three month Digital Animation Training Lab scheme for six professionals from West Wales and the Valleys. This was a pilot scheme designed to provide advanced learning in the production of digital animation for 3D and 2D animators, primarily using Flash, Maya and After Effects software. The training took place in a learning studio environment, within which the trainees collaborated on a creative concept, from script to screen. It was led by industry and delivered by specialised tutors, including Rick Villeneuve, Matt Leonard and Tim Allen. The end result was the production of a commercially marketable five minute animated film, Moon Pirates, which also has a Welsh version, Lloer Leidr.

Ar ôl cwblhau’r cynllun, enillodd un hyfforddai le ar gynllun Insight Out NESTA, sef rhaglen fydd yn rhoi cymorth i gychwyn busnes animeiddio. Mae un hyfforddai bellach yn animeiddio ar gyfer y diwydiant hedfan, un arall yn creu ac yn dylunio ar gyfer stiwdio gemau a’r tri animeiddiwr sy’n weddill yn gweithio’n llawrydd gyda stiwdios lleol.

After finishing the scheme, one trainee successfully secured a winning place on the NESTA Insight Out Scheme, a programme to assist in setting up an animation business. One trainee now animates for a company working in the aviation industry, another trainee creates and designs for a gaming studio and the remaining three animators are working freelance with local studios.

Hyd: 4 mis Nifer: 6 o bobl

Duration: 4 months Places: 6 people

Roedd yr ail Labordy wedi’i selio ar lwyddiant y Labordy Hyfforddi Animeiddio Digidol cyntaf. Gan gynnig lwfans hyfforddi, cynyddwyd hyd yr ail Labordy i bedwar mis, ac roedd wedi’i gynllunio unwaith eto ar gyfer bobl broffesiynol, y tro hwn o Gymru gyfan. Ymwneud y diwydiant â’r cwrs oedd prif ffocws yr hyfforddiant unwaith yn rhagor ac fe’i darparwyd mewn amgylchedd stiwdio hyfforddi. Roedd y tiwtoriaid arbenigol yn cynnwys Matt Leonard a Dom Stevens, gyda Rick Villeneuve yn mentora rheolaeth y prosiect. Un datblygiad yn y cynllun oedd gweithio i friff gan gleient, sef Autism Cymru. Cyd-weithiodd yr hyfforddeion ar y prosiect hwn gan ddefnyddio Maya i gynhyrchu ffilm fer fydd yn helpu i gynyddu ymwybyddiaeth o Awtistiaeth yng Nghymru.

The second Lab was based on the success of the first Digital Animation Training Lab scheme. Providing a weekly training allowance, the second Lab was extended to four months and was again designed for professionals, this time from across Wales. Industry involvement was again the main focus of the training which was provided in a learning studio environment. Specialised tutors included Matt Leonard and Dom Stevens, whilst project management mentoring was supplied by Rick Villeneuve. A development in the scheme was an industry client brief from Autism Cymru. This was a project which the trainees collaborated on to produce a short film using Maya that will aid in the awareness of Autism in Wales.

Ar gwblhau’r hyfforddiant, mae un hyfforddai yn gweithio’n llawrydd ar gysyniadau celf ar gyfer prosiectau teledu ac mae hyfforddai arall yn datblygu ei ffilm animeiddio ei hun. Mae un hyfforddai wedi cychwyn ar waith animeiddio 2D ar gyfer prosiect cyfryngau newydd ac mae tri o’r animeiddwyr yn gweithio’n llawrydd ar amryw o brosiectau CGI.
