You will be provided with an educational Toon Boom Storyboard Pro license, but you need to bring your own computer and Wacom tablets/Cintiqs.

Participants must have solid drawing skills and either have finished at least two years of study on a BA degree or have some working experience with film or animation or similar.

In order to apply for the storyboard course, please use the online application form on the right side of this page. You will be asked to provide a CV, documentation for your BA studies, if applicable, a motivation letter and a portfolio.

Submitting an application to the course is not binding. In the event of a successful application to the course, you will be asked to confirm your seat as soon as possible afterwards.

The Animation Workshop reserves the right to cancel the course should there not be enough participants.

Your portfolio should represent you as a visual storyteller and should include your best work. It is important that we see a good demonstration of your drawing skills. We only accept digital portfolios in the form of a link. We ask that your name and contact information be easy to find.

We suggest using Blogspot, Tumblr or online PDFs and that you consider the size of your images and other posts so that it loads easily and quickly. We will not accept portfolios using Facebook, DeviantArt galleries (DeviantArt portfolios are fine) or Flickr. We recommend uploading videos on Vimeo and posting images no larger than 2MB to reduce loading time. Please also make sure that your blog, link or website functions properly. If it does not function at the time of the admissions review, we will disregard your application.
