It starts as the first Workshop of Training in Animation of the Andean region. The training needs this area has are frequently covered by private companies that usually offer technical training in exchange of high prices for enrollment. The most important goals the project has are intended to provide a bigger population interested in training themselves with the possibility of assisting their projects and encourage the

process of learning through a real program that would allow them to exchange their experiences as well as to establish networking relationships with professionals. It is significant that due to the lack of training spaces destined to animation, the proposal was welcomed profusely, supported by the fact that the need of this training process was detected from the basis of the project. There are not similar programs devoted exclusively to the animation in the Andean region.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths The program appears to solve the real need the region has in the search of spaces to strengthen the animation projects in Venezuela and the Andean country neighbors. There is a huge richness of talent and plenty of stories with an amazing potential to be told. Successful welcoming to the first edition and the immense amount of potential projects. Potentiality to generate webs addressed to launch the Itinerant TIFA as a worthwhile experience to be lived in every Andean country. Receptivity of government organizations that support the TIFA Venezuela Project The TIFA program is located in a Venezuelan tourist city that also offers lower costs in production. The Animated Camp modality creates real exchanges spaces, as well as great training concentration.

Weaknesses Need of complex and complicated strategies of organization since it is practically impossible to purchase international plane tickets from and in the country. It is important the contribution in international currencies like the American Dollar. It is to say, this contribution should come from international organizations. it would make easier the purchase of international plane tickets and the payment of international fees. Internet service in the selected camp. Every month the program is affected by the money devaluation. It makes the established budgets to increase and takes the program to a complex management of finances.
