Calling all passionate animators! Cartoon Network (StarHub TV Ch. 316) is staging a two-day Imagination Studios workshop as part of a global initiative to inspire the next generation of storytellers and creators.
Hosted in partnership with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), and supported by StarHub, Imagination Studios comprises an industry workshop on Friday, April 21, and a workshop for kids on Saturday, April 22. The workshops will be held at PIXEL Studios, a dedicated facility launched by IMDA last year to spur Singapore’s next generation of digital content creators. Both events will be fronted by highly talented animator, Daniel Chong – creator and executive producer of Cartoon Network’s hit comedy, We Bare Bears. After building a successful career in Burbank, California, Daniel will speak about his journey as an artist and the process behind creating one of the hottest new animated series.
Those attending the industry workshop will hear from a number of animation professionals from Turner and leading studios who will each provide insight into how to conceptualize, refine and pitch an idea. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to submit their own animation idea to Turner which, if selected, could be fully funded and produced by Cartoon Network in partnership with IMDA. The project will also be screened on Cartoon Network across Asia.
The kids’ workshop will be open to all participants aged between 9 and 13, and aims to introduce children to the wonderful world of animation. Through hands on and group sessions, kids will learn how to create their very own stop animation video in a fun and active environment. The session will be conducted by Vaibhav Kumarev, director of Vaibhav Studios in India, and creator of Cartoon Network shorts, Lamput.
To register or find out more about Imagination Studios, visit CartoonNetworkAsia.com/ImaginationStudios from now till Monday, April 10. Participants will be selected based on a short 50-word write-up to be submitted during registration.
