May 18-19: Animation Resources at CTN Road Trip!

CTN Road Trip

Animation Resources continues its fruitful association with the Creative Talent Network again by participating in the CTN Road Trip in Burbank. We met a lot of great people last year and saw a lot of wonderful art. We’ll be there again this year on April 18th and 19th. Here is the website for the event. If you’re interested in animation and the arts, come on out and say hello!

A world of creativity and imagination will be revealed at the Downtown Burbank Arts Festival featuring 200 world-famous animators, trendsetting indie creators, cosplayers recreating favorite animated characters, live entertainment, and much more on San Fernando Boulevard between Burbank Town Center and the Holiday Inn on Saturday and Sunday, May 18-19 with extended hours from 11am to 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.

The Downtown Burbank Arts Festival brings together groundbreaking digital and special effects animators selling their personal work, along with inventive artisans selling handmade housewares such as candles and ceramics, fashion and accessory designers, body products, and visual art for a one-of-a-kind festival experience unique to Southern California. Annually attracting more than 20,000 attendees, all are invited to experience the creative process, mingle with artists, and browse more than 400 shops and restaurants in Downtown Burbank.

New this year is the Jackalope Indie Artisan Fair, which will be curating the festival’s 100 indie craft exhibitors. Los Angeles-based Jackalope Indie Artisan Fair specializes in uniting local culture with high-quality artisans that are carefully selected for the ultimate in handmade shopping experience.

The Creative Talent Network will once again anchor the popular animation portion of the festival with the CTN Road Trip. The Road Trip will unite more than 100 visual effects, video-gaming, character designers, illustrators, and storyboard artists for the fourth straight year.

In addition to discovering hundreds of exclusive artworks on display, the festival offers the rare opportunity to interact with top artists from the world of animation, enjoy cosplayers from books and films, join in a Doodle Run, attend Storytime and artist showcases, explore virtual worlds, engage with roaming musicians, participate in a Career Camp for promising young artists, and share experiences online via @jackalopeartfair, @creativetalentnetwork and @downtownburbank for the chance to win special prizes.

The latest Animation Reference Pack was just released and it’s a really good one… It includes the first Japanese animated feature, and the highest budgeted industrial film ever made. That’s an hour and a half of still framable animation for you to break down and study. Also included is a bonus download of one of our most popular e-books from the past.

The Importance of Self Study

Self Study

Ask yourself this question and answer it honestly… How much time do you spend exploring new ideas and developing new skills?

Yesterday at our WonderCon panel we discussed the importance of self study for both students and professional artists. Animation is a highly competitive field and the best way to maintain an edge (and a steady job!) is to constantly be learning and growing as an artist. It isn’t enough to just lean on what you already know. Styles change, animation changes, the world changes… If you don’t change with it, you’ll be left in the dust. This is just as true for students as it is established artists. When you stop learning and growing, you might as well be dead.

The road to success involves studying things you DON’T know about, not just looking at the same thing you already like, or drawing the same thing you already know over and over again. You have to actively search out new knowledge and new inspiration YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT YET.

At Animation Resources, our Advisory Board includes great artists and animators like Ralph Bakshi, Will Finn, J.J. Sedelmeier and Sherm Cohen. They let us know the things that they use in their own self study so we can share it with you. That’s experience you just can’t find anywhere else. Students invest a hundred thousand dollars in obtaining a college degree. But the diploma isn’t what matters- the experience is.

Here is another question to ask yourself honestly… Why would you neglect to support Animation Resources with just $85 a year when we are dedicated to helping you continue your own artistic journey of learning and growth? There’s no better investment than to invest in yourself.

Animation Resources members are getting the tools they need to grow and become better artists. JOIN ANIMATION RESOURCES TODAY and get on the road to self-improvement.
