A two-week session in which filmmakers and a veteran from the animation industry, Mike Cachuela (LAIKA< PIXAR, DW and many more ), will lecture on the topics of Mythology & Storytelling while also putting together a “writing room” – a creative environment aimed at supporting the development of story concepts as the basis for new animated projects – in which participants can immediately apply new inspirations and storytelling tools to their projects.
During the first week, the participants will focus on lectures about Mythology and Storytelling, brainstorming and improving ideas for characters, story structures and acting on their own projects while practicing storytelling techniques. The second week will elaborate on these ideas through visual storytelling methods, mechanics and tools used in storyboarding.
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.
The lab aims to create a focused environment and the necessary conditions for the development of skills, and to boost the development of participants’ projects under the guidance of an experienced professional.
To support the development of high-quality story ideas and concepts in the initial development stage and thereby increase the ability of young filmmakers, creatives or brands to succeed with their projects in a highly competitive environment.
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.
