ANIDOX is a creative platform for the development and the production of animated documentary projects.
ANIDOX:LAB is a professional training course – for documentary and animation creatives, directors, producers and professionals with an animated documentary project in development. We offer a series of online seminars and consultation sessions running between April and October 2021.
The lab uniquely addresses visual and immersive storytelling. The goal is to pitch a teaser/trailer and build knowledge, network and resources. We focus on collaborative processes, matchmaking, reaching audiences and new frameworks. The coaching seminars and creative workshops are designed to progress from fine- tuning an initial idea, through visual and narrative development, to a pitch package and a teaser/trailer. It is a laboratory which brings professionals together to maximize their capacity and cultivate new skills, develop their respective projects, and expand their international networks while facilitating new collaborations. Select participating ANIDOX:LAB projects have the opportunity to showcase their work at various prestigious international events and festivals.
ANIDOX is a part of The Animation Workshop / VIA University College’s professional training programme. In partnership with the Danish Film Institute, the Swedish Film institute, Viken Filmsenter, CPH:DOX, Nordisk Panorama and Documentary Campus.
