NipponNordic Universe Accelerator 2018
[September 24-25] NipponNordic is a 4 week artist residency for creative concept development, individual mentorship and cooperation between Japan and Scandinavia. Sunny Side of the Doc representative’s Mathieu Béjot, will be in attendance on Pitch Day (September 24) and share valuable insight on how to access the international marketplace during one-to-one meetings (September 25).
The SUNNY SIDE OF THE DOC PITCH AWARD will also offer an important pitching opportunity for one of the 16 projects in development
Hosted by The Animation Workshop, the participants will develop worlds and original concepts. This second year has been conceived, based on the results of 2017, to be more flexible, to improve the experience of the individual participants and to match the expectations of the producers, partners and investors. For four weeks in September 2018, The Animation Workshop, Scandinavia’s leading center for animation, visualization, and graphic storytelling, will gather acknowledged tutors to supervise day after day the participants.
Their goal will be to enhance their concepts: universes, story worlds and paper-prototypes, either related to video or mobile games, animated TV series or Web series, true-story based animation and serious games, VR, AR or transmedia. Although the two territories are geographically very far apart from each other, there exists a mutual respect and curiosity towards the cultures and traditions of each other. What can create better understanding between people than working together with the ambition to identify and realize yet unknown visions?
