Film Independent Project Involve Program Announces the LAIKA Animation Fellowship for Emerging Filmmakers.
The new, two-year Project Involve LAIKA Animation Track will support five Fellows, including a writer/director/animator, producer, cinematographer, supporting animator and an editor.
Ideal candidates are emerging filmmakers who come from diverse backgrounds and/or communities traditionally underrepresented in film and television. Strong consideration will be given to those who have demonstrated talent in stop-motion animation and collaborative effort.
LAIKA Animation Fellows will participate in Project Involve starting February 2023 and be provided with a production grant to create a 3-minute, stop-motion animated film during the two-year program. In addition, each of the five Fellows will receive a cash stipend in recognition of their two-year commitment to the program.
Program Dates: February 2023 – December 2024
