    Animator in Residence (or A.I.R.) was a Channel 4-sponsered funding scheme producing four animated shorts a year.

    History

    The scheme's facilities were originally housed in the Museum of the Moving Image in London's South Bank. The four directors picked each year to make the films were sent to work in an animation booth at the museum over the course of three months to put together 1-2 minutes of their film; during this time the animators were observed by visitors to the museum. After completion each short clip was sent to Channel 4 for viewing and finally adapted into a complete film.
    When the Museum of the Moving Image closed in 1999, the scheme was temporarily located to the BFI Imax, another South Bank venue. During this time it was decided that the London location was inconvenient for animators from elsewhere in the UK, and that regional schemes based in Scotland, Bradford and a third, undecided location should be set up. All that came of this plan, however, was the scheme's eventual transfer to the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford. It remained there until 2007, when Channel 4 pulled funding from the project. Its facilities at the Museum were then taken over by Ayup Animation Lab.
