[ 0 ] July 28, 2015 |


From the creators of South Africa’s first animated feature film that went on to be the highest earning South African film in 30 years,  for “Adventures in Zambezia” (2012), now Cape Town based Triggerfish Animation Studios and Disney want you to create Africa’s next animation blockbuster! After receiving global praise for their first two animated feature films, “Adventures in Zambezia” (2012) and Khumba (2013), Triggerfish Animation Studios have teamed up with The Walt Disney Company and the Department of Trade and Industry to launch the Triggerfish Story Lab.

So how does it work? Well, in order to be a part of the Story Lab, writers or directors will need to submit original high concept animated stories to a panel of experts who will assess and select about 20 shortlisted candidates. Shortlisted candidates will then attend a 2 week workshop with world renowned script consultants Karl Iglesias and Pilar Allessandra, who will prepare and refine concepts to be pitched to a panel of experts.

Successful candidates selected into the top 6, will enter the Story Lab and go on an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles for 2 weeks mentorship at Disney pictures. In order to apply entrants must be a citizen or permanent resident of any African country and submit their online application before the deadline on 31 August 2015!
