A two-week session in which filmmakers and a veteran from the animation industry, Jim Cappobianco (PIXAR), tbc, will lecture on the topics of Storytelling while also putting together a “development 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.
HOW IT WORKS
The residential workshop is based on team work of small groups of participants. Each will be led by an internationally recognised and experienced supervisor and will also include lectures and one-on-one consultations with the guest supervisor.
Teams will have a storyboarding student available to them as a craftsman to help with boarding story ideas.
Following the residential workshops online consultation with the supervisor will take place as required.
After the residential workshops and subsequent consultations with the supervisor, projects will be presented for feedback to a three-member international expert panel composed of producers and distributors.
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.
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.
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.
