After the 2005 edition with the legends of animation Don Bluth and Gary Goldman, Nemoland – behind the scenes of the imagination, returns this year to the third appointment within the events of the “Genio Fiorentino” with 2 fantastic appointments.
workshop in the fantastic setting of the prestigious Istituto Statale d’Arte in Florence and in the fantastic location of Palazzo Medici Riccardi.
The Workshop gave young Florentine students the opportunity to learn about the secrets “behind” the production of important productions in world animated cinema.

The meeting, which took place in two important moments, had three important animators as protagonists who revealed through “live” drawings, computer animations and “UNPUBLISHED” video contributions on how to become a top-level professional. A unique opportunity for students to meet together 3 artists who have made the history of animated cinema.
