The CTN Expo was held this weekend in Burbank. It was a great event. Panels and Expo and tons of giveaways but most importantly plenty of diamonds in the rough with raw talent.
We were happy to partner with the CTN EXPO and offer a 10% discount for our members using the BAVFX09 code.

During the Expo ASIFA hosted an Animation Educators Forum. More information can be found at There is also another great organization called Girls Drawin Girls. They have a holiday mixer coming up on December 5th 2009. Information can be found at

Sponsors included Animation Magazine, Toon Boom, Woodbury, Cal Arts and many other educational institutions and animation companies.

Educator and Artist Amarpal Khanna from the ICEF charter schools took a group of 30 students to the expo on Saturday.

Companies such as Warner Bros and Walt Disney were on site recruiting and reviewing portfolios and the top off each evening was an industry mixer with the who's who of animation.

Artists locally and from across the country came out to the event such as
Micah Lewis
John Mahoney

There were also representatives from Percy Miller Studios (Master P) in attendance.
