The CEE Animation Workshop opens its call for entries
- The sixth edition of the year-long training programme will consist of four modules and will help develop 12 animated projects; the deadline for entries is set for 20 October
The CEE Animation Workshop has announced the call for entries for its 2024 edition, with the deadline set for 20 October 2023. The sixth edition of the year-long training programme will consist of four modules, and will help develop 12 animated projects, and enhance the skills of producers and creative teams in the field of animation.
The CEE Animation Workshop is tailor-made to suit the needs of producers and their creative teams with animated projects of any format (shorts, TV, feature-length, hybrid, XR) in development, and is also open to a limited number of career-orientated participants, joining the workshop without a project and seeking to build a long-term strategy for their company.
The programme is led by renowned producers and animation script consultants in the roles of group leaders who closely follow and mentor projects for the duration of the programme. Once again joining as group leaders will be established producers Tonje Skar Reiersen (Mikrofilm, Norway) and Corinne Destombes (Folimage, France), and script consultants Phil Parker (UK) and Rita Domonyi (Hungary).
The 2024 edition of the CEE Animation Workshop will consist of four one-week modules, two of which will be held online and two on site. The training will start at the end of February 2024 with an on-site module, with the location to be announced shortly. The workshop will continue online in April and on site in August in Croatia, and will wrap up with a further online module in October 2024.
The participants will finish the year with the final presentation and a pitch to a carefully selected group of industry players. After the completion of the workshop, participants can take advantage of the CEE Animation network and gain privileged access to various international industry and market events.
“We are happy to open the call for the sixth generation of projects for the CEE Animation Workshop in 2024. We are preparing an inspirational and tailor-made programme with our team and our esteemed group leaders. We are looking forward to selecting a diverse and international group of new participants and animated projects in development, and taking them on a year-long journey of project and skills development and networking,” says Saša Bach, the managing director of the CEE Animation Workshop.
The workshop is intended for teams with a project in development (up to three participants: a producer, a scriptwriter and/or a director with an animated project of any format in development) and for participants without a project working in the field of animation.
The CEE Animation Workshop has, in the previous four years, helped develop more than 60 projects from 180 participants from around the globe. More than 120 guest expert lecturers and animation industry representatives have shared their knowledge with the participants, with the goal to improve participants’ skills and enrich the field of animation production in European countries with low production capacity.
The CEE Animation Workshop is supported by the Creative Europe – MEDIA programme.
