DaniMation Entertainment specializes in providing animation industry talent development for artists on the autism spectrum and other disabilities while also delivering award-winning 2D animation for entertainment and industry. Our mission is two-fold, providing an autism positive learning environment supporting growth in technical and interpersonal skills while delivering exceptional 2D animation to our clients.
We provide talent development programs to individuals with autism, providing valuable technical and social skills. Advanced members of our program work on paid animation and illustration projects where they perform story writing, storyboarding, character designing, layout, animation, voice acting, music, and post-production editing.
ToonBoom Animation is a sponsor for DaniMation Entertainment; they provide animation software when Dani teaches animation to individuals on the autism spectrum.
Dani’s summer camps and national speaking schedule deliver a message of hope and encouragement to others like her that are impacted by autism and also serve to market DaniMation’s services as well as develop a network of like-minded organizations and a recruiting platform for future employees with DaniMation.
Currently Available Animation Talent Development Programs
We teach several one-week animation camps to introduce the arts and animation basics. There are two types of Summer Boot Camps, DaniMation-Based and camps where DaniMation is contracted by organizations to teach an animation camp.
This certification program consists of a two-semester course beginning with story development, animation principles, storyboarding, and learning to work with a team, and concludes with the production of a two-minute animated team project.
The program is currently held in partnership with Spectrum Laboratory's Spec Saturday Animation Workshop. This consists of two classes, the beginners and the advanced class.
DaniMation will recruit students from but not limited to animation camps and skill-development programs to a one-on-one mentorship with animation professionals—where students will work on animation projects.
Our Mission is to change the world’s perception of autism by demonstrating the incredible talents of individuals on the spectrum while providing transformative programs that maximize the potential of each individual personally and professionally while delivering exceptional animation to industry and entertainment.
Our goal is continually expand Danimation’s services and impact by partnering with like-minded organizations…..
