‘DOCUANIMATION #2’

LEARN HOW TO COMBINE DOCUMENTARY AND ANIMATION TO PRODUCE

SHORT ANIMATED STORIES ON GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE

EXTENDED DEADLINE!!!!!

Following its successful first Docuanimation course at the end of 2016, Yangon Film School is delighted to announce a second edition of this course, in partnership with the British Embassy and SOAS/London (UK). We are therefore looking for students who are excited to learn new skills to create four short docuanimations on gender-based violence.

Using an innovative approach developed by YFS these films will combine real-life audio-testimonials with animation.

Two international tutors specialising in docuanimation and audio documentary respectively will guide YFS students as they research and identify real-life stories and protagonists and use different animation techniques to create four strong and emotive three-minute animated documentaries on the topic of violence against women in Myanmar. These stories will focus on different types of violence such as intimate partner violence, technology related violence and violence against women in areas of conflict.

We are looking for sensitive, creative and patient students who are committed to working hard and who enjoy collaborating.
