Character Design: A conversation with the pros at Skydance Animation
Saturday 10/15 3:10PM - 4:10PM Room 104-105
Skydance Animation, Christopher Ables, Natalia Falciglia, Maliheh Rahrovan, Annwhitney McCombs, Ariel Goldberg
This presentation will feature a brief introduction to Skydance Animation, discussing the studio’s history and culture, followed by a moderated discussion in which two recruiters and three artists discuss what it takes to develop oneself as an artist so as to secure a position at a studio like Skydance. The conversation will offer a variety of perspectives, from those who have been working for a long time, as well as those who are closer to the beginning of their careers. Each of the panelists has had a unique career path, and we hope that our collective stories demonstrate to the audience that there is no singular, “right” way to build a career in the Animation industry.
