Welcome to Cartoon Springboard 2017 in Halle!
Cartoon Springboard started on Tuesday 14 November. Experts, young talents, producers, and many wonderful animation projects landed in Halle, Germany.
We are celebrating the third edition of Cartoon Springboard, an event dedicated to the young talents to help them entering the professional world of the animation industry. Our objectives are to make young creatives and producers more aware of the needs of the industry, and underline the new trends that are shaping the industry from a creative, production and distribution point of view. It is also an unique event for them to pitch and network with top-level professionals.
Cartoon did a survey among young talents who attended last year and found out that among the 24 projects presented at Cartoon Springboard: 7 projects are in very good progress with producers and funding institutions to develop further.
Moreover, 1 project (“Geno” by Lira Production Studios, Georgia) was pitched at Cartoon Movie last march and 3 projects ("Mabel Cleans Up " by Akademie für Kindermedien, Germany - "The Brownies" by Zographic Films, Bulgaria and "Hungry Bear Tales" by Bionaut, Czech Republic, and Dandelooo, France) were pitched at Cartoon Forum last September. We hope to have the same good results this year and even more!
In the next days, the young talents, last year or freshly graduated students, will pitch 24 promising projects from 16 European countries.
We finished this great day in a relaxed atmosphere with our traditional Welcome Dinner in the Stadhouse of Halle.
