A two-week lab in which artists form a creative laboratory environment in collaboration with a veteran from the animation industry and independent artist, Jonny Duddle, to develop art (visual) concepts and proposals for characters and environments. Primary focus is on understanding and developing workflows and decision-making skills when fleshing out ideas based on a story direction. Participants should have drawing skills already at an intermediate level and bring their own projects to the lab to boost both their skills, workflows and their projects at the same time. The intense and dedicated environment and teaming up with Jonny speeds up their work while delivering results to be used after the lab.
Story ideas can be based on output from the first course of the Story Lab.
NOTE: LAB means that participants bring their own materials (projects) to work on
There is increasing demand for new original stories to be produced as series, feature films and as cross-media projects. Original stories require original art.
The lab aims to create a focused environment and the necessary conditions for the development of skills and the development of character and environment design for animation projects under the guidance of an experienced art director.
The topics will be announced
In order to be eligible for the lab, you need to submit your project idea as a synopsis of no more than 500 words max. along with your registration.
