Unleashing the next wave of animation visionaries: The CAPE animation directors accelerator in the USA.
In a monumental collaboration, CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment) has joined forces with Sony Pictures Entertainment to introduce the groundbreaking CAPE Animation Directors Accelerator (CADA) program. This innovative initiative is set to unearth and empower the future leaders and storytellers of the animation world.

The program is meticulously designed to hone and refine the artistic and leadership skills essential for triumph in feature film and episodic animation. With guidance from industry trailblazers, directors will delve into the intricacies of their craft, unlocking new dimensions of creativity.
One of the most invaluable aspects of the CADA program is the mentorship sessions offered. Through these sessions, participants will gain priceless insights and advice from distinguished professionals who have navigated the intricate terrain of animation. This mentorship promises to be a beacon of guidance for emerging directors, illuminating their path to success.
Directors can create and present projects that serve as a canvas for their unique directorial vision and storytelling prowess. This hands-on experience will allow them to showcase their creativity and push the boundaries of what animation can achieve.
The CADA program also offers a vibrant platform for networking. Directors will forge connections with like-minded peers, establishing relationships that will prove invaluable in their future endeavors. These connections are poised to be the cornerstone of a flourishing career in animation.
To be a part of this transformative program, candidates should demonstrate a genuine passion for animation, supported by a compelling portfolio of work.

Effective verbal and interpersonal communication is also essential, as is the ability to thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.
While the CADA program is a non-paid venture, the experience, mentorship, and industry exposure it offers are beyond measure. Selected animation directors will receive a certificate of completion from CAPE and Sony Pictures Entertainment, solidifying their position as the vanguard of the next generation of animation storytellers.
