We’ll be hosting two panels on Friday you won’t want to miss:

  • State of the Industry
    Room 32AB, July 13, 2:00pm – 3:00pm
    What do the professionals think of the animation scene today? Is 2D ever coming back? Is there a stop-motion renaissance? How do I get a job? Join Tom Sito (Beauty and the Beast, Shrek), Jamie Kezlarian Bolio (Lion King, The Illusionist), James Parris (Spider Man, Benjamin Button), Ramin Zahed (editor of Animation Magazine), Josh Scherr (Uncharted III: Drakes Deception, Jax & Daxter), and a stop-motion animator from Laika’s upcoming film ParaNorman. Come join us for the discussion!
  • Worst Cartoons Ever!
    Room 6BCF, July 13, 9:00pm – 10:00 pm
    Animation historian Jerry Beck returns with an all new program of some of the worst cartoons ever made, including the Phys Ed super-hero Mighty Mr. Titan, space cadet Johnny Cypher and some of those 1960s Marvel Super Heroes cartoons. Have a ball with the best/bad animation ever!
