It’s time to look back on one of the exciting new conferences we attended this year: Project Anime: Los Angeles!! A biannual conference between Tokyo and Los Angeles, this was the first year that Project Anime provided two different tracks: one for conventions, and one for the anime industry!!!

With speakers from all parts of the industry - producers, directors, toy designers, etc. - we learned a lot about the differences in animation development and production in Japan, the challenges of adapting Japanese properties for global audiences, the power of merchandise, and more! What was really special was how easy it was to talk with everyone, even before the networking reception. Between the many inspirational panels, we made new connections, new friends, and even snagged some sweet Yokai merch for our shrine!!

Here’s hoping to see you next year Project Anime!!!

Comic Barcelona!

So excited about this 37 Comic Barcelona Festival! Not only because I love comics and it happens in my home city, but also because for the very first time ever I will be part of it! Super thrilled to be sharing some comic knowledge with the little ones at the Comic Kids section, but also to be part of the educational program with the “not so little anymore” future pool of artists! Here at Glow in the Dark, we are all about of giving back to the community, and what a better way for me than sharing some knowledge and tips in Barcelona!

Stay tuned for more news!

TAC and OTTAWA International Animation Film Festival! 2018

After a crazy inspiring week we can say we are back in Burbank with a LOT of awesome stories to tell from the OIAF !!! The convention was a success for us!! Not only we had a chance to represent Pirateers! It the TAC semifinals (that was an awesome experience already!), but we also took full advantage of all the incredible inspiring and informational lectures, events and a very well organized Business Fast Track. We saw a lot of international movies, made tones of talented friends and discover the heart of a very lively city that lives up to their high Canadien friendly standards.

The event had a lot of very fun and successful networking events like the Toon Boom sponsored Boat Cruise, or the BBQ-Pumpkin-Carving event in the beautiful park sponsored by Cartoon Network. Not to forget the great Nickelodeon Breakfast and the lunch and parties networking events. We really look forward to come back next year and see all the new friends we meet! Also stay tuned for mischievous outcomes from this event!

And what kind of Creative Studio we would be if we didn’t took the chance to explore and get inspired by this beautiful city?? So we did!!! And we discover tones of wonderful bookstores, secret coffees, amazing beautiful fall colors and very impressive Modern-gothic Architecture!

Ottawa is a Must See City!!

Las Vegas Licensing Expo! May 2017

We have been so busy that we forgot to update about our Las Vegas Trip!!!! We got the chance to go on May 23-24 2017 to go to Las Vegas Licensing Expo! Was a wonderful opportunity for us to see the potential of licenses, meet with awesome production studios from around the world and to learn about this great industry that is behind the curtains of Entertainment. We also got to assist to the Nickelodeon Girls Lounge where we meet and learn from awesome women in the Licensing industry, super inspiring! We are so excited to see where all of this go, and for sure it was definitely a great experience that we will repeat next year!
