Ever wanted to see your animation on a building? Quickdraw Animation Society seeks submissions from emerging to mid-career animators for our QuickTrack Program. Over a 3 month period, 4 emerging professional artists will be paid to work with a producer, mentor, technicians, and have access to full animation facilities at Quickdraw Animation, in order to create a short animation.
QuickTrack animations will debut through the Animated City installation component of our GIRAF festival, Nov 2-6, 2011. We encourage all applicants to Think GIANT. Envision your animations projected on buildings and storefronts across the city, interacting with the urban architecture of Calgary. All techniques of animation (except 3D CGI) will be considered including hand-drawn, stop motion, collage, film, mixed media, digital -Toon Boom, TVP, Photoshop, After Effects and more.
Participants must commit to work fulltime for 3 months, onsite at Quickdraw Animation Society in Calgary Alberta. We encourage both local and national submissions, and applicants must be Canadian citizens. Travel and accommodation costs for participants from outside of Calgary is NOT covered by the program. Participants should have experience in animation or a related artistic field, and must be relatively new to animation/filmmaking, but confident in their chosen technique.
