Toonz Media Group, which is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, announces the 2019 edition of its Animation Masters Summit (AMS), on 3 and 4 May at the TechnoPark Campus in Trivandrum, Kerala.
The theme at this year’s AMS is ‘Connecting Content: Seeing the Big Picture’. In this ever-increasingly complex global multi-platform, consumer driven world empowered more and more by kids, our vision, understanding and capability to connect content, is key to success and at the core of animation excellence.
Established as the first ever animation event in India in 1999, each year Toonz celebrates the ‘Art of Animation’ bringing together experts and leading figures from the Global Animation Industry from across the world to interact with aspiring young talents, and for masters to showcase their work to animation professionals, entrepreneurs and the media.
Recognised and respected industry talents and experts from around the world will share their experiences, reflections and learnings at the Animation Masters Summit, offering inspirations and insights into what it takes to have vision, and connect and drive content in this invigorating new entertainment era. This year’s event will include a new programme called the Cocoon Concept Lab, to celebrate Toonz’s two decades of entertaining the world.
The Cocoon Concept Lab is a programme designed to support authentic story-telling and ideas by providing indivisualised concept development for concept creators with a TV/digital series idea or screenplay which have not yet been commissioned or broadcast and for which the worldwide rights are available.
