Animarkt Stop Motion Submissions For Pitching Section Open Only For One More Week – 31st May

// News

How to create animations that don’t hurt the environment? Where to search for low-emission solutions? And how to include concerns about our surroundings into business production schedule? For these and other questions young creators submitting their projects for this year’s ANIMARKT Stop Motion Forum competition section must find the answers. New mandatory green criterion for project’s rating can be decisive factor for its victory. Submissions via online forms can be sent in only until the end of May.

“We are aware how big of a challenge for the environment are actions tied to film production, that’s why we look for solutions that would allow us to minimize this negative impact. This is where the idea for inclusion of green production criterion in pitching session came from. With this, we want to reward ideas that are future of the animation” – explains Agnieszka Kowalewska-Skowron, director of the forum. She adds that the new element can impact the ranking of the entire project.

This year, same as in years before, projects can be submitted to ANIMARKT Pitching in two formats. The first one covers short projects in development having at least first draft of the script and lasting no more than 25 minutes. The second one is dedicated to the projects of feature films or TV series or specials at different stages of realization. As usual, necessary condition in both cases is 80% of animation being planned for creation in stop motion technique. New criterion is mandatory plan for sustainable production of the film. This element is going to stand for 10% of entire project’s evaluation.

From all submitted applications jury is going to choose 10 projects in each format.

In Autumn creators of the best projects are going to compete for awards, thanks to which they are going to get closer to making their ideas come true. Organizers are waiting for submissions in Pitching sections only until 31st of May. Results are going to be announced on 31st of July.
