Calling All Animators – Dreamworks & ACMI Want You

ACMI wants to hear from all aspiring and established animators!

As part of the world premiere of DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition, ACMI’s Designing Dreams Studio will provide Australia’s up-and-coming animators with an unparalleled opportunity to learn from ‘the best in the business.’

ACMI and DreamWorks Animation will select a small group of talented animators to go behind the screen in a once-in-a-lifetime hands-on journey of animation from sketch to screen.

The experience includes meeting award-winning DreamWorks Animation creatives; taking to the red carpet at the DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition world premiere; and attending the DreamWorks Industry Masterclass on Friday 11 April in Melbourne. The all-day Industry Masterclass will provide a unique opportunity to gain insights from DreamWorks Animation’s Chief Creative Officer, Bill Damaschke, Production Designers Kendal Cronkhite (Madagascar) and Christophe Lautrette (The Croods, King Fu Panda), and Visual Effects Supervisor Doug Cooper (The Price of Egypt, Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron).

Participants then take part in a unique creative workshop project culminating in a rare industry opportunity to present their works to the DreamWorks Animation team via video link to L.A.
