Masterclass Children's Animation


Friday 23 October - 13:45 - 16:00
This year for the first time we are organising the Masterclass Children’s Animation. The Netherlands is a global leader in creating drama for children and has a strong tradition of youth documentary. However, there is both a domestic and European thirst for knowledge on how to write animation scripts for children. This masterclass will therefore provide an exchange of knowledge and skills between live-action scriptwriters and animators including Paul Wells.
