A group of 15 to 16 young European animation artists, producers, scriptwriters and technical directors travels 2 weeks to each 4 school to follow 4 separate parts of an overview of the entire animation film production process, from concept development through financing and production management to marketing and distribution. Television and feature films, games and interactive media, traditional and cross-platform production processes are all covered at various stages along the way.
As a new addition to the programme, there are several special collaborative events designed to meet the challenge of getting to know new technologies in order to use them to tell stories with animation. These events will include a 3-day hackathon where teams of of artists, technicians, producers and script writers will create prototypes for Animated Spaces, as well as a 2-day game jam.
As a special supplement and based on their talent and motivation, of the 16 students, 2 groups of 4 will also have the opportunity to join and represent ASF at the Cartoon Movie 2020, the Animation and Prodution Day and FMX 2020 events. All fees and costs are covered by ASF.
Production and technology participants are required to send in a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter with a special focus on their view of the animation industry and, optionally, any available samples of personal projects they might be working on and which could be further developed during the workshop.
Technical directors/programmers are required to send in a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter, links to previous works/projects and, optionally, any available samples of personal projects they might be working on and which they would like to further developed during the workshop.
