The Animation Workshop

Ciclic and The Animation Workshop, two similar philosophies and a logical collaboration

In 2016, our two residencies got closer and we decided to think about a potential collaboration. 

We decided very quickly to combine our residencies in order to offer young directors an increased financial support, infrastructures totally dedicated to animation experimentation and an opportunity to learn from other creators and directors coming from all over the world.

In 2016, three directors joined the residency program in Viborg and Vendôme:
