During the International Animation Film Festival in Annecy, our group of International Masters in Animation had the opportunity to present their work to professionals in the animation industry.
l’IDEM Barcelona arranged a formal meeting with Digital Graphics, Bibo Films and La Fabrique Production. Each student could present his/her end of studies creation and benefit from commentaries and advice from acknowledged professionals. The two purposes coming forth from this experience were clear:
1) getting in contact with CEOs from international studios
2) preparing our students for a future looking for work abroad
This exchange had been valued very successful for the professionals, as they enjoyed the different projects and as they encouraged our students to continue by giving them advice and various recommendations. Our students, from their part, also positively assessed the experience which prepared them for the rest of the festival.
l’IDEM Barcelona integrates in its educational programme the phases for professionalization and provides its students with various contacts throughout the working world.
