SCHOOL OF ANIMATION
Our school of animation attracts youth who aim to spend free time creatively by producing animated videos. The aim of the school is education in the creative sector, esthetic and cinematic, which motivates imagination and doesn’t restrict authorial freedom of expression. The beginners of the program, supported by professionals, through creative play, produce their own copyrighted works. Such an approach enables the production of copyrighted films, which are later qualified and submitted to various international, regional and local festivals of animation. Advanced attendees of the educational programs participate in the implementation of projects relating to innovative and interdisciplinary methods in areas of arts in the Southeastern European region.
We organize workshops attended by prominent international animation experts, who share their experiences with the youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We focus on promoting Bosnian-Herzegovinian animation globally and we organize exhibitions that promote animated films. We have the capacities to introduce the world of animated film production to various organized groups of kids and youth across the country. Throughout the last eight years our school has educated over 100 beginners, produced 67 animated films and implemented over 30 events and exhibitions.
