The Animation Directors Panel

Animation directors define the style of motion for a show or movie, guiding large teams of animators to focus an eclectic array of talents on creating a cohesive end product. Sounds easy enough, right?

We gather a roundtable of animation directors working on a variety of different projects at studios across Ontario to discuss their experience, swap stories and compare notes on the day-to-day duties of directing animation!
