Cartoons Underground and *SCAPE celebrate 10 years of supporting Singapore’s Indie Animation Scene
*SCAPE and Cartoons Underground’s Story Development Lab returns for a second year to help make animated visions into reality.
In celebration of their 10th year anniversary, Cartoons Underground is partnering with *SCAPE to host the Animated Visions: Story Development Lab workshop to help aspiring animators develop their story ideas.
This is the second time they are partnering *SCAPE to run this workshop.
Last year, the Story Development Lab was held over two days, covering topics such as storyboarding and filming from veterans in the industry, and securing the financial backing needed to proceed with a project.
This year, the workshop will be held over four days across two weekends, 13 to 14 and 20 to 21 November. Masterclass talks will be given by industry professionals, where participants will be able to receive one-on-one feedback on how to strengthen their pitches.
The workshop will also include Zoom webinars covering topics such as the future of monetisation and the impact of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) on animation.
Participants also stand a chance to be discovered by local animation studios and potentially see their pitches come to life.
On Nov 27 after the workshop, participants will be able to pitch their projects to a panel of judges. The team with the most successful and well-developed pitch will be awarded a cash prize for being the Best Project Pitch.
The pitches can be of any genre, length and format (shorts, series, features, etc.) and can be submitted here by Nov 1, 11.59pm.
