Discover our 100% online Summer School

In light of the current global sanitary conditions, GOBELINS has decided to propose a 100% online edition of the Visual Storytelling Summer School from 29th June to 10th July 2020!

Building on the strength of 40-years teaching experience in animated storytelling, GOBELINS has developed its summer School for advanced-level students and to young professionals of all nationalities (available in English, Spanish, and French) to help them better understand the creative process, the structure, and the presentation of visual storytelling.

This instalment’s objective seeks to help them develop their personal project for cinema, television, animation, comic book, video games, or even illustration, while focusing on the art of combining story and image. You can also learn to make a professional presentation for your portfolio and add new skills to your career!

The program has been completely redesigned for online education and built for all people who want to improve their writing capacity, make their original project grow, and learn to tell their own stories via an oral and writing presentation - also called “portfolio” and “pitch”.

The program will combine conferences with professionals and individual coaching sessions. This is a unique opportunity to make your project grow or plan a career within the story department of a studio, for example!


The programme

  • Story structure
  • How to improve your story
  • Follow intuition and break the rules for amazing visual stories
  • Visual research and world building
  • Understand what a producer wants to hear
  • Make a portfolio for the professionals
  • Create a visual presentation
  • Improve your public speaking and operational skills.


Discover our coaches


The coach list is not yet definitive and other professionals will join us!

At the end of classes, participants will receive an official GOBELINS certificate.

Price: 1,500 €  Taxes included (60% of time dedicated to conferences and 40% to coaching)

The program is in its finalisation stage. For further information, please contact Louis-Erwan DU-BOT and Léa GARRAUD at
