Malfinis had a successful day of introducing over fifty young artists to animation using ToonBoom software and YIYNOVA graphic tablet monitors. A bit of a reality jolt though as the organisers and us catered for 15-20 persons we thought would attend the animation segment and over 50 showed up . So we are very pleased with the level of interest in animation training.
MALFINIS facilitates video production workshop for UNICEF sponsored "one minute junior video project"
Coming straight off of attending the IADB facilitated Animation Cluster stakeholders meeting held in Jamaica 4th to 9th July, Malfinis Film and Animation studio was indeed very happy to have facilitated the UNICEF funded five day workshop on film for 20 plus at risk youth. The workshop was dubbed the "one minute junior video project" and the aim was to introduce the use of videography and film-making as an alternative career choice or creative means of self expression, storytelling and communication of ideas. The facilitators took the young attendees through the subjects of creative thinking , critical thinking,teamwork,the principles of writing and directing for film and the practical applications of filming and editing. The workshop was facilitated on behalf of the Division of Human Services from the Ministry of Health .
The young people were all very talented and keenly interested, very focused and successfully produced four short videos at the end of the workshop, all with positive social messaging.
