Summer Quarter event: Week 2 Pizza & CTN Animation Expo

On Friday July 22nd from 12-1pm, Tara Steinke from the CTN Animation Expo will make her yearly visit to tell us about the Expo which is held in November up in Burbank. 

It's a worthwhile convention and all students should attend. I will nominate volunteers to help out at the show so if you're interested let me know.

We'll have some pizza and she will raffle off some tickets to the Expo.

See you there!

Spike & Mike "New Generation of Animation" screening Fri. July 15th 7pm

For those of you unfamiliar, Spike & Mike was one of the original animation festivals. Spike is a hardcore old dude who, back in the day, helped many animators get recognized by the public. 

The screening will be on our campus, in rooms 145-6-7. Spike will talk about his experiences in the animation community before he screens the latest compilation.

All attendees will get a free DVD as well. The cost is $5 on the day of the show, while they last!


Comic Con Guest Speakers

Hey everyone,

I am working on the details to get Stephen Silver (Character Designer for Kim Possible, Danny Phantom, and everything cool) to come in for a workshop just before Comic Con. He will be bringing in books to sell, so start saving your money now.

Be sure to let us know what type of workshops you would like to have before next quarter starts. All workshops are scheduled the first week of classes. You can email Jason with your requests.
