Applications for the workshop of developing computer video games, held as part of Animafest Pro programme at the upcoming 23rd edition of the World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb, are now open. In the period of 5-8 June workshop participants will work in small teams, consisting of animators and programmers, and develop their own computer games, acquainting themselves with the limitless creative possibilities of the job. Using cutting edge technology in the laboratory of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, they will explore the potentials of the transmedia connection between animation and computing, the basis of not only the growth of independently designed games in the last decade, but also of the most of digital entertainment’s rich history. Workshop facilitators are research associate Aleksandra Čereković (FEEC) and art associate Darko Masnec (Academy of Fine Arts), in coordination with professor Igor Pandžić, PhD (FEEC).
The workshop is designed for 20 participants divided into four-member teams. Everyone with software development experience (C++, Java, Unity etc.) and/or design and animation (Maya, Blender, 3D Studio Max, Photoshop, Illustrator, GIMP, Inkscape) are welcome to apply. Priority in the selection process will be given to senior students of FEEC and Department of Animation and New Media (AFA). The workshop takes place at FEEC, lab A109, at disposal from 9am to 9pm.
