Where community comes together to animate Jewish stories
Since our debut in 2008, hundreds of you have asked: “How can I help make a G‑dcast?” or “What if my students could help make a G‑dcast?”
We listened! In 2012, we premiered STUDIO G-DCAST, a program that brings cohorts together to collaborate on short animated films. So far we have hosted Studio Berkeley, Studio Ramah, Studio Adas Israel and, thanks to a generous grant from The Covenant Foundation, Studio G‑dcast: The Contemporary Jewish Museum, which offered 24 university students the chance to work in chevruta to transform classic Talmud stories into eleven animated shorts and one app.
We’re looking forward to the continued expansion of Studio G‑dcast and excited to turn more G‑dcast fans into filmmakers and app developers. Who knows, maybe the next film we make will be with YOU!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: (415)935-4565 to learn more about making a film with us.
The development of Studio G‑dcast was made possible in part by funds granted by the Covenant Foundation. The statements made and the views expressed in the individual projects, however, are solely the responsibility of the artists.
