These Short Movies were created as a part of our Technical Knowledge Transfer Program
  • Technical Knowledge Transfer Program

We solicited projects that clarify the training targets, purposes, and peculiarities of each applying studio;
then an external committee selected four studios among all the applicants.
In order to guarantee the quality of education, our Training Committee supervised the training of each company.
The purpose was creating short movies of 7-10 minutes of a quality high enough to appeal to international markets.
