Industry Day For a Professional Audience

«Getting Fit For The International Market»

Get fit for the international Market

Prepare for your industry breakthrough - 1 to 1 advice from industry experts

The Bootcamp “Get fit for the international Market” was designed to meet the needs of young talents. Many young animation filmmakers and graduates from film schools are confronted with the same problems: how do I enter the industry or how do I navigate and advance my career in order to work on major international productions.

In a full-day intensive workshop and 1 to 1 consultations by experts, Fantoche provides the know-how, how to use your own talent profitably, in order to advance professionally and internationally in your career. This bootcamp will provide comprehensive inputs and checklists: which skills are required for which jobs? Which technical programmes and which animation techniques are required in which departments? Which further training courses are necessary and where are these training courses offered? Four experts from different areas, related to the topic, will lead sessions to share this knowledge. Afterwards, the participants can personally get feedback on their portfolios and showreels in 1 to 1 consultations with the experts.
