Studio Animators in Conversation

Wednesday 26th March, 2014

BCU Parkside Gallery | 17:00

How to make the transition from aspiring bedroom operation to fully-fledged animation business.

Animate Projects

In partnership with Animate Projects, we’re joined by BAFTA-award winners Will Anderson Ainslie Henderson (The Making of Longbird), master of mutating mashups Cyriak, Birmingham-based animator Chris Randall and Irish animator and producer Eimhin McNamara for an informal discussion focussing on each of their studios and how to make the transition from aspiring bedroom operation to fully-fledged animation business. Each of the panellists will offer advice on balancing commercial and non-commercial work, the importance of collaborating and working in collectives, and the practical challenges of running your own studio.

This event is produced in partnership with Animate Projects as part of Accelerate, a professional development programme for UK animators. See their website for more info on the other Accelerate Pipeline events.

Part of Swipeside, an animation programme produced in partnership with a group of students from Birmingham City University.
