Our Yearly Projects

Mokoa Presents...

Mokoa's annual year-end project will be the release of a major short film, produced entirely by our members over the course of the school year. Through Mokoa Presents, members will experience the process of animation firsthand and the fulfillment of working as a team on an animated film.

Into the Drawing Board

A series of online workshops and lectures hosted by professional artists and animators. These workshops will tackle major steps in the animation process, starting from pre-production topics such as storyboarding, to drawing frame-by-frame animations, and ending in post-production topics such as video editing. Aside from these major workshops, lectures may also be provided for specializations such as voice-acting.

Animation Celebration

A monthly event commemorating selected animated films and shorts based on an overarching theme. Throughout the month, online games and facts will be posted relating to these featured films. Depending on the film, screenings may also be held through our online hub.

Weekly Show-off Jump!

An optional activity that prompts members weekly to write, illustrate, animate, or voice act under a certain theme. Submissions for the week will be displayed on our online hub and social media accounts with the approval of our members.
