Calling AMV editors! We're now accepting submissions for our international AMV competition through August 5!
You could win your very own coveted Asuka award, and your AMV could be shown in our packed-to-capacity Main Events. Make sure you read the rules, then upload your video here. Though attendance is strongly encouraged for AMV editors, it is not required.
Also, panel registration is also still open. Just like last year, it's a two-step process. We started submissions a little earlier this year because panelists told us they preferred more time. But make sure you get all submissions in by July 15!
And speaking of animation and panels, our friends at the Denver Film Society asked us to pass on word of an exciting opportunity for students: learn the basics of animation from a pro animator.
The YFW Animation Workshop will give students (13-19 years old) the opportunity to create their own characters under the instruction of a professional animator. The hands-on course, which runs July 9th-20th at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, will focus on fundamentals such as character design and development as well as narrative story-telling techniques including writing for animation and storyboarding.
Suitable for beginners as well as students with prior animation experience. Partial scholarships and payment plan options available upon request. Questions? Email the DFS.
