Toutes les brèves : Appel à candidatures
A new residency in Denmark in partnership with Japan
Nippon Nordic Universe Accelerator is a 3 weeks of an intensive skill-up creative program, hosting a maximum of 16 projects. Talented artists, authors, designers will develop their concepts, in a group dynamic, to create universes, story worlds and paper-prototypes, either related to video or mobile game, animation TV series, documentary, serious game, VR, AR and transmedia.
The Call for projects is open for its first edition that will take place from September 11 to 29, at The Animation Workshop, in Viborg (Denmark).
The participants are selected by a committee based on their proposed projects and will be:
- junior or intermediate artists with a background as directors, new media concept artists, writers, storyboard artists or game designers
- Japanese (living in Japan or abroad), Korean or Chinese (special permanent residents in Japan), Danish (living either in Denmark or abroad) or foreigners (currently living or running a company in Denmark).
On the last day of the residency, during Viborg Animation Festival (VAF), the participants will get the opportunity to pitch their concepts in front of a jury of high-level professionals from both territories, advising them on the best ways to reach the market and get into production. The best projects awarded will get the chance to go on with their development through additional residencies and to access pitching sessions in major festivals and partner-events throughout Europe and Asia (such as Annecy MIFA Pitches, Sunny Side of the Doc, Cartoon Connection Asia, Japan Content Showcase, etc).
Submissions will close on Friday 14 April 2017. For more information, please visit this webpage: www.nippon-nordic.com/guideline/
