THIS WEEKEND! Animation Resources Portfolio Reviews at CTN-X


ANIMATION STUDENTS! If you are attending CTN-X this weekend, make a point to arrange to be available Saturday between 4 and 6 or Sunday between 3 and 5. Story Artist/Designer JoJo Baptista and Director of Education Taber Dunipace will be conducting portfolio reviews that you can’t afford to miss.

Big studios will review your portfolio, but they won’t necessarily give you an honest critique to help you figure out what skills you really need to develop to be employable. That makes sense. The job of a studio recruiter is to find qualified candidates, not to help out unqualified ones. But Animation Resources’ sole purpose is to help young artists make the transition from gifted student to skilled professional. You need to talk to us!

Taber and JoJo are uniquely qualified to offer you guidance and advice, and they’re motivated to help. So if you go to other portfolio reviews at CTN-X and get turned down, come to ours and we will tell you how to get hired next time.

JoJo Baptista: Saturday 4pm to 6pm
Taber Dunipace: Sunday 3pm to 5pm

Stop by Animation Resources’ Table T239 before 2pm to get on the list.

Screening TONIGHT: Action Analysis- Acting for Animation FREE

Acting For Animation

In the ten short years between “Steamboat Willie” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” the Disney Studios advanced the art and technique of animation at a rapid rate of speed. This progress has been widely credited to the work of Don Graham. He instituted a series of action analysis meetings where live action films were broken down and studied, and animated films would be critiqued to determine what worked well and what could be improved upon. On November 6th at the Art Center College of Design, Animation Producer Stephen Worth will be channelling the spirit of Don Graham to present an action analysis class on “Acting for Animation”.

This event is absolutely FREE and open to the public.

Presented as a part of Michael Dooley’s “Design History of Comics & Animation” class

Art Center College of Design
Monday November 6th, 7 PM

STEPHEN WORTH is the President of Animation Resources, a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization serving animators, illustrators and cartoonists.
