The-Animation-Guild-150

If you’d like to learn about the state of TV animation development, you’d be wise to attend an informative panel discussion planned by The Animation Guild (Local 839) this Tuesday, September 25. Titled “The State Of TV Ani­ma­tion Devel­op­ment”, the panel will be hosted by TAG exec­u­tive board mem­ber Karen Carnegie John­son. Pan­elists will include Jenna Boyd (senior VP of ani­ma­tion devel­op­ment, Nick­elodeon), Jonathan Davis (exec­u­tive VP of com­edy devel­op­ment and ani­ma­tion, Fox Ani­ma­tion), Eric Homan (VP, devel­op­ment, Fred­er­a­tor) and Michael McGa­hey (VP, devel­op­ment, Dis­ney Tele­vi­sion Animation).

The panelists will discuss the state of TV animation, what each studio is looking for today and how to approach each development team with your projects and pitches. Mem­ber­ship meet­ings offer TAG mem­bers an oppor­tu­nity to recon­nect with the Guild, inter­act with the Exec­u­tive Board, raise con­cerns and hear about the state of the indus­try. While not manda­tory, atten­dance and par­tic­i­pa­tion are key fac­tors in keep­ing TAG abreast of mat­ters in the workplace.

Pizza and refresh­ments are avail­able at 6:30 p.m. The meet­ing begins at 7 p.m. Mem­ber­ship meet­ings are held in the meet­ing hall of The Ani­ma­tion Guild, which is located at 1105 North Hol­ly­wood Way in Bur­bank, Cal­i­for­nia, between Mag­no­lia and Chandler. For more info, visit www.animationguild.org.
