In Memoriam: Remembering the Animation & VFX Greats Who Left Us Last Year

In 2022, we lost many talented men and women who enriched and brightened our world by the remarkable contributions they made to the fields of animation and visual effects. We honor their memory, celebrate their accomplishments and are forever grateful to them for making our world a better and brighter place. We are also thankful to the amazing Tom Sito, for producing The Afternoon of Remembrance each and every year to celebrate the achievements of those who left us this past year. The Animation Guild’s annual event is slated for Sunday, February 26 at noon PST via Zoom.
