LOS ANGELES, CA (January 16, 2015) - 6 Point Harness (6PH), a creative and visionary animation studio which develops and produces premium content through its suite of high-end tools and services, in collaboration with two-time Emmy® Award recipient, Toon Boom Animation Inc., announced today that the companies will host a free, two-day storyboarding workshop with guest instructor, animator Matt Danner.
"Great storyboards are crucial and we have noted an increased demand for board artists familiar with Storyboard Pro software," said Brendan Burch, CEO, Co-Founder and Executive Producer of 6PH. "And, there is no one better than Matt Danner to develop talent. It’s a real unique opportunity for burgeoning creatives."
The first workshop will take place on Saturday, February 21st from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at 6PH’s new Echo Park facility. A panel of industry professionals will select 30 participants after reviewing the submitted applications, and body of work.
"Storyboarding is the life-line of the animation process – a place where a story becomes real. I'd like to share what I've learned from my journey so it can be of use to others," said Danner. "Throughout my career, I've had many mentors and peers that helped shape my ability to do what I love. It's time to pay it forward."
The workshop will entail instruction by Danner, additional guest lecturers and a lesson on Toon Boom’s Storyboard Pro.
"We are thrilled that 6 Point Harness asked us to be a part of this amazing event," said Desideria Mastriaco, Toon Boom Animation Marketing and Communications Manager. "It’s so important in our industry to encourage creativity and to continue to provide opportunities for young animators, and artists."
After the session, participants will be asked to create groups of three and then each group will be responsible for storyboarding one act of a particular 11-minute script. On March 14th, groups will return to 6PH to pitch their project to directors who will provide feedback and notes.
Toon Boom will grant one-month Toon Boom Storyboard Pro licenses so that participants can complete the assignment.
