Animation Jam Information:

March 6-7, 2017 with special guest: Disney animator Trent Correy


MAniJam (Manitoba Animation Jam Out Session) is a creative challenge brought to you by Sisler IDM & Trent Correy. Student film-makers, animators & artists will be challenged to create animations in just 3 hours (sort of! remember School does end at 3:30 pm). 3 hours to create an animation from start to finish does sound crazy, but that’s the whole fun of it.  Every student’s animation must start and finish with the same Key-Frames.  Students may animate using any of the following tools:

  • pencils & paper,
  • Adobe Photoshop,
  • Adobe Flash/Animate,
  • Adobe After Effects,
  • Adobe Premiere
  • Animation Desk
  • etc


On March 6 & 7th, Disney animator Trent Correy (a former student) will be leading a 2 day celebration of Animation live @ Sisler…we are calling it MAniJam (Manitoba Animation Jam). Trent was one of the animators on the Academy Award winning animations: Frozen, Big Hero 6, & Feast and on the Golden Globe winning movie Zootopia and the nominated Moana. His work also includes The Smurfs movie, TMNT and many more. This will be an intimate event, with a maximum of 50 students (40 will be Sisler students). At this point lunch will not be provided, but we are working on that. There will also be a 4 draw for all 2-day participants to receive a copy of:

Art of Big Hero 6 book, Art of Moana book, Art of Zootopia book, & Art of Frozen book
