We are soooo excited and soooo proud of our Pirateers Crew for hitting the semi-finals at the PITCH THIS! Competition at this year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival. We hope the the best luck for them the next week in Canada!!! That has been a truly team effort!!!
We survived once more to CTNX! This year was a bit special for us! Not only was the first one fully promoting the studio, but also was the first one trying something different! was kind of scary... but went great! We were very excited to set up on Wednesday night our new booth with our new goodies, new flyers, some stickers, portfolio reviews... and lectures!
We definitely have to thank all our tablemates: Benson Shum, Trent Correy, Michael Woodside and Melany Altuna for being great to be with! Also our great collaborators Ryan Hansen and Annushka Almendros and Denise Caro (Our great intern!) for helping us to hold the fort! And to all of you that came by to say Hi!!, participated in our portfolio review and got interested in meeting with us and learn about the studio!! Was great to see new and old faces!
Thanks to everybody that came to our "From idea to Pitch" panel !!! Was very incredible to see how many of you are interested in pitching and developing original content. The panel was nervewracking for us (The good kind of nervewracking tho!) since it was a full house audience and a great turnout! We definitely had a lot of fun and we hope you all enjoyed as we did!
And last but not least, thank you to Casey Robin for inviting Katia Grifols to be part of her great "Freedom of Freelancing" panel this year. Was great to sit once more with Nic Gregory and Alina Chau to discuss the wonders of freelancing! Thanks also to all the people that came or saw our panel live!
