Andean story universes for animated TV-series


Internationalization & System Export / IP-development

15 animation professionals from five Andean countries (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela) joined the incubator program to create story universes for animated TV- series. The overall goal of the program is to provide a platform for local animation talent to reach global resonance.


  • About

    Andimation is an incubator program where participants create Andean story universes for animated TV-series that can resonate across territories.

    Andimation is a program that focuses on the development of animation projects and productions and is centered on cross-territorial, artistic collaboration between the countries of the Andean Region: Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela – and Denmark.

    Andimation is the beginning of a broad movement for the animation sector in the Andean Region countries. By combining their strengths and creating story universes, the participants will communicate about common references and create new ones while revealing local identities and values, aiming to facilitate understanding between the people of the Andean region and beyond. This will no doubt encourage more cooperation and co-production in the region but also encourage local creative voices to pursue ambitious international projects.

    In 2017, a full TV series concept was developed, speaks and project pitches were given at major festivals, and partnerships between the European and Andean animation industries were strengthened.

    The dedicated people behind Andimation are currently touring festivals to share their experiences and present the program’s results together with the next generation of Andean talents.
