5 New Animation Shorts from The Animation Workshop

The Animation Workshop, a more than 30-year-old animation film school located in Viborg, Denmark premieres online its latest bachelors project films.

The school (part of VIA University College’s faculty for Storytelling, Design and Business) has consistently produced high-quality animation film output, including films like 'Deepness of the Fry' by August “Poul” Niclasen (read our review) and 'Animals' by Tue Sanggard (our review).

“These are the filmmakers of tomorrow and now they need to affect an animation industry that is rapidly changing and growing. I am excited for these graduates! Their competencies reach far beyond the traditional and they have the potential to break the boundaries of animation in both films, tv, games and entertainment” - Lotte Kronborg, Head of Studies at The Animation Workshop: VIA University College.
