Signor Rossi Award

Dedicated to the animated films produced by students of Italian and foreign animation schools.
XXII Edition – 2018

Il Premio “Signor Rossi” è dedicato ai film d’animazione prodotti dagli studenti delle scuole di cinema d’animazione o di corsi di specializzazione in animazione. Le scuole hanno l’obiettivo di coltivare talento e creatività, competenze artistiche e tecniche per l’industria dell’animazione e preparano i propri studenti ad un mestiere che oggi si svolge tenendo conto di tutte le tecniche di animazione attualmente usate. Un percorso che si avvale dell’insegnamento di materie come disegno, illustrazione e animazione tradizionale. In questi istituti si formano i giovani professionisti dotati di una conoscenza globale del processo creativo e produttivo del film d’animazione e di competenze specifiche per inserirsi nel mercato del lavoro con particolare riferimento a: CGI 2d e 3D, stop motion, character e production design, scenografia per l’animazione, storytelling/storyboard, compositing e animazione di effetti, regia d’animazione.
A Cartoon Club a prestigious international jury, consisting of five members, awards a cash prize worth 1200 Euros winning author, as well as the famous statuette of Mr. Rossi is also sent to the school that presents the best production.
