Berlinale Talents is aimed at emerging film actors, audience designers (i.e. curators, cinema or festival makers), composers, cinematographers, directors, distributors, editors, film critics, producers, production designers, sales agents, screenwriters and sound designers with an existing portfolio of work.
The Nick Artist program offers aspiring artists, with diverse backgrounds and experiences, the opportunity to hone their artistic skills while working on their 2D and CG animated television shows. Nick Animation seeks out talented designers, painters, and story artists with unique and/or under-represented voices. There are three creative avenues to pursue: General Design Track, Storyboard Track, and CG Generalist Track. Each track provides hand-on experience working with directors, supervisors, and lead artists on their productions in your chosen discipline. All tracks are open to any qualified artist who has not yet had production experience.
