Check the full schedule for the industry day (12 Nov 2019) at Kaboom Animation Festival.

As was tradition at HAFF and KLIK, we’ll organize a varied program that endeavors to feed the bellies of the engines powering the Dutch animation industry. At the first edition of Kaboom Animation Festival, it  promises to lay the foundation for an Industry Day which will bring together professionals in a feast made of fruitful connections and exchanges of knowledge.

Collaborators include: ArtEZ, AKV St. Joost, WDKA, Dutch Filmacademy and University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU) as location partner.

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.

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?
HKU auditorium – Professionals from several specialisms within the animation industry tell us what their job actually entails. A nice chance for students and young professionals to be introduced to specific roles within the animation industry, and to be shown glimpses of possible career paths.
