Ellipse Studio, the animation and webtoon production studio of Ellipse Animation, has teamed up with webtoon platform ONO, subsidiaries of the Média-Participations group, and Kenaz, Korea's leading independent webtoon production company, to open a Webtoon Academy in Angoulême.

 

This entirely free training program is aimed at talented French-speaking webtoon, comic strip and animation artists who want to start creating their own webtoon series.

 

The first Webtoon Academy outside Asia, this program aims to train 12 artists in webtoon tools and storytelling.

 

The trainees will have the opportunity to create the first episodes of their series, and some of them may subsequently be selected by a jury made up of Kenaz, Ellipse Studio, ONO and the editors of Média-Participations, to finalize their webtoon series at Ellipse Animation's Angoulême studio for broadcast on ONO.

 

Trainees will be taught and coached by Kenaz trainers, a unique opportunity to be trained by Korean webtoon professionals.

 

After an online introduction in August 2024, training will take place at Ellipse Studio Angoulême and project partner EMCA from September to December 2024 , over a total duration of 13 weeks.

 

Registration is open until Friday, July 5.
