Animation Resources Portfolio Reviews at SD Comic-Con

This Saturday July 20th, stop by room PR01 between 1pm and 7pm. Animation Resources members and special guests are providing critiques of aspiring animators, visual development artists and storyboard artists. 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. 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!

THIS WEEKEND! 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.

Do you have what it takes to break into the field of animation? Every year students graduate with degrees in animation, but only a fraction of them end up landing a job in the business. Competition is fierce, and if you want to get your career started, you have to be prepared and ready to hit the ground running. In this panel discussion Producer Stephen Worth is joined by Designer/Storyboard Artist JoJo Baptista and Educator Taber Dunipace to offer tips that lead to success and advice on how to avoid common pitfalls. If you hope to pursue a career in animation, you won’t want to miss it.
