PROGRAM INDUSTRY DAY
09:30 - WELCOME AND REGISTRATION
10.00 - CREATIVITY WITHIN A TEAM
HKU auditorium – A presentation by Illuster’s Michiel Snijders, in which he will talk about the creativity within an animation team. Founded in 1997, Illuster has become the biggest producer of animated short films in the Netherlands, winning many awards on international film festivals. This presentation will be about the creative process within a team: how do you build a strong creative team where the members work well together and nobody’s skull gets bashed in?
11.15 - FOCUS ON STOPMOTION ANIMATION
HKU auditorium – In this programme the festival is delving into stopmotion animation, specifically exploring interesting hybrid projects that combine stopmotion animation and other animation forms.

12.45 - POP-UP: ANIMATION MASTER PILOT PRESENTATION
This short presentation will give an impression of the Pop-up Animation Pilot: a project that currently runs at AKV St. Joost. This project is a pilot for a Minor programme that will be jointly developed by AKV St. Joost, HKU, Artez and Willem de Kooning. The initiative attempts to fill the need for more skilled newly graduated specialists that have experience working in a proper pipeline production, using industry standard software.
14.00 – OOH, WHAT DOES THIS PERSON DO?
