AniDox Residency at The Animation Workshop

A new residency program for animated documentary short films. Do you have an animated documentary short film in development? Is it ready to go into production early 2015? If you have the motivation, the skills, and the film idea, The Animation Workshop has the means to make it come alive!


Residency program for the production of animated documentary short films.

Building on the already existing Open Workshop artist residency and AniDox:Lab training programme at The Animation Workshop, and with the support of at the European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017, AniDox Residency will make it possible for one animated documentary short film of high artistic quality to be produced every year from 2014-2017 leading up to a screening event at the European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017. The Animation Workshop will host the production and provide studio facilities, workstations, housing for the director, production support as well as financial support.

AniDox Residency will be an artistic spearhead in the examination of the possibilities and potential of functional animation. Animation can systematize and reproduce abstract concepts and connections in an accessible way, and represent events that are too small, too big, happen too slowly or too fast, or that simply happened far away from rolling cameras.

The Animation Workshop, VIA University College is selecting one animated documentary short film to be produced in 2015. Production is expected to start in January 2015 with a premiere in January 2016.

The Animation Workshop provides:
  • Studio facilities
  • 2 workstations with relevant software
  • Technical support
  • Housing for the director
  • Production support
  • Financial support for materials and as salaries which amounts to 275.000 DKK (approx. 37.000 EUR). The amount is subject to change and depends on the Aarhus 2017 grant.
