About

For the past 13 years, intrepid teams of animators spend their May long weekend locked in the Quickdraw Animation Society studios, making brand-new animated films during our annual ANIMATION LOCKDOWN production event! Participants enter the studios on Friday night, work shoulder-to-shoulder with their fellow artists all weekend, and leave Monday afternoon having created something incredible. There’s community, there’s challenges, there’s a screening, there’s prizes, and there’s memories!

For more information on timelines, logistics, technical requirements, prizes, food, and pretty much anything else you could think to ask about the Lockdown, see our detailed event description for the 2020 event. Please email our Production Director with any questions about the event, and get ready to register for 2021!
