YOUNG UNICA WORKSHOP
Animation at Blansko

Workshops in animation

The Czech Republic is famed for its animators. At Blansko a team of teachers offer practical classes in several types. If you want to make animated movies, create animated titles, produce clever moving diagrams or fashion scenes of imagination - this is where you should be for the first week of September 2018. The workshop is for film makers of 25 or under, who are not attending a film school. One young person from each UNICA Member Country gets free hotel, meals and Congress Card (ticket). Your cost will be travel to and from Blansko.

There are 30 places in the workshop. If these are not all reserved, a National Organisation may send an additional young person. That person must pay for half of their Congress Card and for their board and lodging: a total of 298 Euros.  They must also pay for their travel.
