The European Film Academy's Master Class this year will focus on animation. Held by Andreas Hykade (www.hykade.de) the EFA Master Class 2013 ANIMATION TODAY is dedicated to modern animation. During one week (9 - 15 September), participants will form a team and create an animation film from the original idea to the completed film. Participants can come from any field, be it independent animation, games or commercial animation. They can work in various techniques, be it 2 D, 3 D, puppets or pixilation.
In a mixture of group sessions, screenings, case studies and lectures, but with a focus on hands-on exercises, the workshop will allow the participants to gain a profound knowledge of the creation of an animation film covering all stadiums of a classic animation production: idea, story, design, project bible, storyboard, animatic, layout, animation, scoring and exploitation.
Held by author, designer and director Andreas Hykade, the workshop will be accompanied by different renowned animation filmmakers who will share their individual approach to the respective “topic of the day”.
Andreas Hykade has been creating animation films since the mid-90s. Among his films are WE LIVED IN GRASS (1996, German Short Film Award), RING OF FIRE (2000), THE RUNT (2007, German Short Film Award, FIPRESCI Award Annecy), TOM & THE SLICE OF BREAD WITH STRAWBERRY JAM & HONEY (2009, Grimme Online Award) and LOVE & THEFT (2010, German Short Film Award, Sacem Award for original music, Annecy 2011).
Supported by the MEDIA Programme of the EU and the MFG Filmförderung Baden-Württemberg, the EFA Master Class will take place in Ludwigsburg in the South of Germany at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg’s Institute of Animation, Visual Effects, and Digital Postproduction.
