2013 Animation Educators Forum

Last Sunday, Professor David Chai (adviser to the "Tule Lake" crew) and Michelle Ikemoto (director) were among the student film Annie Award nominees as guest speakers at ASIFA-Hollywood's Animation Educators Forum, for their "Short Films... Long Process" panel.

There were a lot of great questions raised, amazingly accomplished members of the animation industry in attendance, and it was exciting getting to hear the varied processes behind the other nominees' films!  Hopefully hearing about the experiences will be helpful to animation educators in structuring their courses or advising their own students on their films.  Thank you to Aubrey Mintz for inviting us, we had a great time!
