ASIFA-Hollywood at San Diego Comic-Con 2017

ASIFA-Hollywood is going to be at San Diego Comic-Con next month and we want to see you there! Be sure to visit our booth at space 1534 and say hello to us! We will also be hosting two panels this year, which will include moderators Tom Sito and Jerry Beck.

Friday, July 21 – 5:00pm – 6:00pm ASIFA-Hollywood Presents: The State of the Animation Industry
What do the pros think of the animation scene today? Is hand-drawn and VFX gone for good? What will be the impact of VR? How do I get a job? This panel will explore how animators fit into current business models of animation studios and the ever-changing landscape of motion pictures, television, and new media. Moderator Tom Sito (Beauty and the Beast) engages in a lively discussion with John Van Vliet (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark), Samantha Vilfort (Disney TV Animation), Danny Young (FuseFX), and Brooke Keesling (Recruiter, Cartoon Network, Disney). Room 28DE

Friday, July 21 – 8:15p.m. – 9:15p.m. Worst Cartoons Ever! – Hosted by Jerry Beck
For the 15th year in a row, Jerry Beck (CartoonResearch.com) will once again foist upon the Con a new selection of the most terribly written, ugliest drawn and unintentionally funniest animated films ever made for television – all for real, all from TV’s glorious golden age! Cartoons including Con favorites Mighty Mr. Titan (the physical fitness superhero in a form fitting costume a little too tight for comfort) and Super President (making America great again by donning spandex and going nuclear)! You’ve been warned! And Jerry promises something a little extra awful for his 15th anniversary screening. This you gotta see! Room 6BCF
