  • Structure and content

    Animation Producer

    “Animation Producer” is one of two legs of the course package Producing Animated Content for Film and TV.

    The Animation Producer course will encompass all of the different roles an animation producer must take on in order to develop, finance, produce, market and distribute animated films or TV series.

    Through lectures and case studies by Danish and international producers, participants will learn about choosing the right projects (target audience, style and format), according to a company’s strategies/editorial lines, about the life cycle of a project (co-production, rights, and actual production), and gain valuable insights into topics such as public and private financing in Denmark and internationally, running a company (accounting, administration, salaries etc.), working with distributors/broadcasters, clients, identifying and cultivating talents, understanding various media platforms, as well as technical pipelines and their respective potential.

    Participants will work on project-based assignments between weeks 1 and 2 thus enabling the participants to dive into their individual cases.
