It is also open to a limited number of participants focusing on career development, representatives of industry and public institutions.

The workshop delivers a comprehensive and integrated approach on script and art design development, legal matters and copyright, funding opportunities and production models, production planning and cash flow, music and sound, acting and dubbing for animation, distribution and exhibition, promotion, new technologies and marketing.  It focuses on the roles of producer’s portfolio, project’s bible, producer’s package and pitching preparation. It helps identify a clear roadmap for project execution (target audiences, marketing and promotion, distribution strategies, production plans) and promotes co-production possibilities.

The programme is led by two renowned group leaders and two animation script consultants. Particular fields of development are introduced and advised by acclaimed international experts and professionals from the industry.

The programme is structured as a combination of group work, lectures, masterclasses, panels and case studies, with a practical orientation towards concrete progress of projects and participant’s skills. It offers an opportunity to present projects to a large group of selected decision-makers, representatives of the industry, funding bodies, broadcasters and sales agents and to pitch projects in front of the CEE Animation Forum audience.

A long-term follow up system gives the participants the possibility to take advantage of the wide CEE Animation network and access to different industry and market events in the EU after the finish of the Workshop programme.
