Animexperience 2008 will build on the fantastic work achieved throughout 2007, by offering anyone with the slightest interest in the animation or computer game industry an insight into these fields.
Last year over 2,000 school children participated in Animexperience, with workshops, talks, screenings and educational guidance offered throughout the year, and during Animex week.
We have teamed up with the Extended Schools project, Local Children's Network and the Every Child Matters scheme to deliver relevant vocational and educational stimuli to children within and around the Teesside region.
We will again be teaming up with the BBC bus as it tours local schools with on-board animation tutors and media professionals, producing and broadcasting in one go.
Saltburn Community Cinema, in association with Digital City , will be delivering screenings, talks and questions and answer sessions too.
There will be free screenings for school groups and families in association with Animex Screen; talks from industry high flyers in association with Talk and Game; workshops where you can create your own short film or animation; educational guidance and advice; question and answer sessions, and vocational and creative direction. Wow!
But most of all, we offer the chance to get a flavour of what it takes to make it in the crazy world of animation or computer games, and the message is simple.
If you want to go far creatively, then you don't have to go far (geographically) to achieve it.
So if you ever wondered how, why or where can you go to succeed then Animexperience is the starting point and who knows where it could all end up.
See you at the Oscars!
Come on Teesside lets get animated.
