ANIDOX:LAB is The Animation Workshop / VIA University College’s animation documentary professional training programme in partnership with the Danish Film Institute, the Swedish Film institute, Viken Filmsenter and CPH:DOX; with support from Creative Europe MEDIA.
It is a laboratory, during which we bring together documentarians and animation directors, artists and creative producers to maximize and cultivate new skills, develop their respective projects, and expand their international networks.
ANIDOX:LAB is designed to help projects progress from fine - tuning an initial idea, through visual and narrative development, to a pitch package and a teaser/trailer. We work with documentary creatives, directors, producers and professionals with an animated documentary project in development. Teams are encouraged to apply as well as artists working in cross media, hybrid forms and new technologies.
The Oscar-nominated 'Flee' project by Jonas Poher Rasmussen was first developed at Anidox:Lab 2013.
