The SCHOOL of CARTOONING and ANIMATION for MISSIONS
We are committed to training students to develop cartoons, comic books, tracts, and animated media in order to communicate the gospel in culturally relevant ways to the least reached peoples of the world.
The School of Cartooning and Animation for Missions (SoCAM) is a twenty-four week, second-level YWAM school, accredited with the University of the Nations (course code: CMC261/262). In many cultures, and especially within those in the 10/40 window, people prefer to receive information through pictures. Cartoons and animation can be powerful tools, particularly in Asia where people line up at stores to buy the latest comic book.
(The next school runs in June 3 - November 19, 2021)
During the twelve-week lecture phase, guest speakers who are experts in their fields will provide hands-on training in a variety of topics, while students grow in their relationship with God and use media to reach out to the local community.

Also, 12 weeks of production will be integrated into the training, where students will be directly involved in the production of a cross-cultural animated short film that shares the good news with an unreached people group. This will include onsite field research, consultations with local missionaries, and hours of guided production at our studio in Taiwan.
