Hykade to Lead EFA Animation Masterclass

Workshops to run Sept. 9-15

LONDON — The European Film Academy will make animation the focus of its annual masterclass, which will be led by German animator Andreas Hykade. The masterclass program, titled “Animation Today,” will run Sept. 9-15.

Participants will form a team and create a film from original idea to completed film. Participants can come from any field, be it independent movie animation, vidgames or commercials animation, and can use a variety of techniques.

In a mix of group sessions, screenings, case studies and lectures, but with a focus on hands-on exercises, the workshop will allow participants to gain an in-depth knowledge of the creative process, covering all stages of production: idea, story, design, project bible, storyboard, animatic, layout, animation, scoring and exploitation.

Hykade will be accompanied by different filmmakers, who will share their individual approach to the respective topic of the day.

Hykade’s pics include “We Lived in Grass,” which won the German Short Film Award in 1996, 2000’s “Ring of Fire,” “The Runt,” which won the German Short Film Award and Fipresci Award at Annecy in 2007, “Tom and the Slice of Bread With Strawberry Jam and Honey,” winner of the 2009 Grimme Online Award, and “Love and Theft,” winner in 2010 of the German Short Film Award and the Sacem Award for original music in Annecy in 2011.

The masterclass, which is supported by the EU Media Program and the MFG Filmfoerderung Baden-Wuerttemberg, will take place in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
