16 May 2017, UPDATE
It is with great sadness and regret that we announce the cancellation of Animation Jam 2017: Bootcamp + Competition. Due to unforeseen circumstances the event will no longer be taking place this year. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your support.
As you have all noticed, especially with the recent Saving Sally entry at the Metro Manila Film Festival, we have really talented animators and storytellers in the Philippines. To become a successful animator or storyteller or a creative entrepreneur in the Philippines, there are a lot of skills that need to be developed and honed. One of Team Manila Workshops goal is to help the creative entrepreneur and the aspiring animator develop other skills that they need to be a successful professional or creative entrepreneur.
Last year, we created a very successful event called Animation Jam. And this year, we have made it even better and bigger!
Animation Jam 2017 will be both a learning bootcamp and a competition!
What is Animation Jam?
