The LA SKINS FEST, in partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures Animation, Crunchyroll, Cartoon Network, the Cherokee Nation Film Office and Women In Animation, has selected the fellows for the 2nd Annual Native American Animation Lab.

The 2nd Annual Native American Animation Lab is an intensive workshop for Native Americans with a current animation project. The goal of the program is to offer new opportunities to prospective Native Americans who want to explore a career in animation. Also, it is intended to inspire Native American writers, directors and artists to consider a new arena in film, television and new media.

The program will work with eight Native Americans in a 5-day animation lab. All participants chosen for the lab will workshop one animation project through one-on-one mentoring, group sessions and peer workshops. The program will conclude with an intensive pitching session for each participant.
