Cartoon 360 2021 - Coaching Programme


The Coaching Programme at Cartoon 360 took place on Monday 15 November 2021.

This programme aims at nurturing relationship between the animation schools and the professional world. It also exists to support the upcoming generation from the Region Hauts-De-France.
This year it has been hosted at ESAAT (Upper School Applied Arts And Textile) in Roubaix, where we’ve been warmly welcomed by Bernard Gabillon and Jean-Pierre. 


The morning was dedicated to presentations offering the students tips on how to pitch a project, and a glimps at the 360° aspects of animation from the professional side (in French). Here were the talks:

  • The Importance of Pitching Well and Tips to Get There
    by Agnès Bizzaro (Content Director at Cartoon Springboard)
  • Ishtar Games: Which Path, Which Strategy, Which Philosophy?
    by Matthieu Richez (Ishtar Games)
  • 360° Approach at the Heart of Bayard’s Strategy
    by Pauline Chamming’s (Bayard Jeunesse Animation) & Soukaïna Abdennadher (Bayard Jeunesse Animation)


In the afternoon, 4 projetcs from students were selected to compete during an workshop “Mini-pitch Challenge”. The jury was composed by Jérôme Allard (Pictanovo), by Diana Hentulescu (Moukda Production) and Karin Ann Orbeta (Mash&Co).

They awarded 2 projects with the following prizes:

  • Prix Project of TV series: Antéchrist - Garde Partagée from Sophie Walter (ECV Lille)
  • Prix Project of short movie: Météore from Camille Dorey (ESAAT)

The students were then invited to attend Cartoon 360 on Tuesday and Wednesday

Many thanks to the experts, to Pictanovo, and to ESAAT for making this Coaching Programme happening. And all the best for the upcoming generation and their projects!
