ATCs offer short-term instructor-led training on Harmony and Storyboard Pro through courses designed for professionals working in television, film, games and advertising. The ATC designation from Toon Boom Animation is public recognition that an institution meets a high standard of quality animation creation. ATCs must teach courses using the latest version of Harmony Premium, Harmony Advanced or Storyboard Pro software. Instructors must have a minimum of two years experience working in the animation industry. They must also be certified at the Professional level by Toon Boom on Harmony or Storyboard Pro. "ATCs are important to the overall growth and development of the animation industry.

GS Animation specialises in children's animated 2D TV series. It's first big production was Harry and Toto, a TV series for preschool children by Paul Shuttleworth, for BBC Worldwide. It was from working on Harry and Toto that they learned how to manage large projects, working with international partners and creating successful pipelines. Presently they are developing their first animated feature film, Mice on Strike.
