An international jury assesses our 4th year Animation students

By 8 June 2021June 23rd, 2021No Comments

At the end of this week the final year Animation students will present their work to a demanding panel of judges. This year the final year jury will be made up of top professionals from leading international studios. On the one hand, the jury will evaluate the individual work of each student through their showreel and will analyse their evolution throughout their training at the school. And, on the other hand, it will assess their participation in the collective projects developed during this course: the end-of-degree 2D and 3D Animation short films.

The final examining board is a decisive step in the training of each student as it certifies their studies at L’Idem. The qualification of the jury corresponds to 25% of the final grade.
