This two-week Workshop (February 2-11) teaches primarily Guyanese and Caribbean nationals how to create their own 3-page animation scripts with a comedy/funny genre focus. This Workshop was designed to challenge Guyanese and Caribbean artists, animators, writers and creators to create
narratives about Guyana and Caribbean culture that could be consumed and understood by global audiences. It is also aimed at creating cross-cultural collaborations with Guyanese and Caribbean diaspora and international writers with an interest in creating animation and TV content
featuring Guyanese and Caribbean culture.
The ultimate purpose of this Workshop is to strengthen the skills capacity of all attendees and to be a space for long-form and short-form animation writing and story development. Work created in this Workshop will be published in many outlets including video generated content by all attendees pitching their script. The videos generated by attendees pitching their scripts will be posted on social media for public voting.
Summary: It’s for Guyanese and Caribbean Nationals or International Writers interested in Guyanese and Caribbean culture to develop scripts turning Guyanese stories into animation scripts for production.
