BFI Animation Camp 2019 – COMING SOON!

Calling the Shots are pleased to announce that applications for our annual animation camp on behalf of the British Film Institute will open in September 2018.

The six-day residential course will take place at Barton camp from Saturday, 16th until Friday 22nd February, 2019.

The BFI Film Academy animation camp is open to all young people aged 16-19 with a passion for animation.

About the course

Delivered in partnership with oscar-winning Aardman Animations and the University of the West of England’s School of Animation, our course offers 25 places for young people with a passion for animation to work together in teams to make five animated shorts.

Participants learn about every stage of production, covering story development, model making, animation production and post production.

We also offer sessions on careers advice and master-classes with practicing industry professionals from the Bristol animation scene.

We will be open for applications in early September. Check back and download an application form.
