Free Professional Workshop

Sun Creature, in association with ANIS - WeAnimate, is launching our first professional workshop in Copenhagen for professional animators who want to get expertise in 2D clean-up animation.

Six participants will be selected to follow a 4-weeks free training programme with some of our best artists.

Sun Creature will provide a workstation and required software for the participants.
You will work on specific exercises and NOT on actual production.

The workshop will take place from the 1st of April until 26th of April 2019 from 9.30 am to 5.00 pm.

Why is Sun Creature starting a professional workshop?

We are aiming towards hiring more in-house artists to increase the quality of communication, since we currently use many remote freelancers. This workshop is used to expand our network for artists in Denmark and hope to meet new talented people.

We would like to offer a programme to train artists outside of production who potentially could be our future employees, since our productions are technically demanding.

For who?

  • Professional people who have been studying animation.
  • Motivated to learn and improve their animation skill and to work on high-quality films.
  • Living in Denmark.
  • English speaking.
  • Knowledge with TVPaint.

Applicants should have a solid generalist background in animation since all classes will cover advanced topics.
