The Cartoon Animation Institute (CAI) has tapped Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Fox Television Animation supervision director Peter Shin to speak at its inaugural open-forum lecture. Focusing on how to start a career in the animation industry, the free event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m.
Through its new series of lectures, CAI hopes to aid the animation industry by creating a forum where established professionals and up-and-comers can get together to share knowledge and encouragement. The not-for-profit events will be held on the first Saturday of every month, presenting new topics and guest speakers. Seating is limited.
