Lets get together World Animation Retreat and finish something


Life’s like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending

— Jim Henson —


Event Details

Getting it Done!

 This event is about bringing animators, storytellers and overall creators together to finish a project and show off your creation at the end of the retreat.  We will provide industry standard hardware and software so you can strut your stuff. Whether you choose to be a competitor completing a brand new short or are looking to make progress on a personal project, you will live and breathe animation and the art of storytelling.

A Worry-Free Weekend

Unlike most conventions, we take care of those pesky logistics:  your room, 3 square meals a day, a midnight snack, hardware, software,  you name it – it’ll all be provided. We don’t want anything blocking the flow of your creative chi on this retreat.

That’s Not All Folks!

Though the spotlight will be on the competition, we do have demos, seminars and workshops from top talent in the industry, and the intimate setting will allow for more personal Q&A’s.

Bonus Perks

The venue will host a variety of physical activities such as hiking trails, biking trails, a zipline, and more so you can get some fresh air when needed. Most of all, we want everyone to build lasting connections in the industry.
