Animation Sans Frontières (ASF) calls for participants

altAnimation Sans Frontières (ASF) or else the European Animation Production Workshop is a supplementary training programme supported by EU's MEDIA Programme.

ASF is designed to give European graduate-level animation film and production students an understanding of the fine art and the business of getting an idea onto a screen.

ASF is run by 4 prestigious European animation film schools:

  • Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Germany;
  • Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Hungary;
  • The Animation Workshop in Denmark;
  • Gobelins, l’école de l’image in France.

 

This programme will last 8 weeks and is open to European students from all European animation film and film production schools.

 The schedule of the workshop is the following:

  • Module 1-Filmakademie: "Finding new ideas, topics and formats", Germany (October, 2013);
  • Module 2-MOME: "Design, style and approach", Hungary (November, 2013);
  • Module 3-The Animation Workshop: "The production bible, financing and distribution", Denmark (February, 2014);
  • Module 4-Gobelins: "Production management, the producer pitch", France (March, 2014).

The participation fee is 800 euro and covers all travel costs to all 4 schools, all hotel/hostel nights including breakfasts for 2 weeks at each school, all lunches and several dinners as well as a wealth of didactic material (from art supplies through various teacher hand-outs to a number of recognised film production books).

Students who will successfully complete ASF will receive a joint course certificate signed by all 4 partner organising schools.

If you are interested, you can fill in the application form. The submission deadline is the 31st of May.
