We got extremely lucky to find ourselves in Korea at the time of the SPP!!! We were ins Asia for another reason (seeeecretssss!!!!) and luckily we stumbled upon that convention, the timing was just perfect! Was super easy to sign in, the staff was super nice and responsive! And we took fully advantage of their Business Meeting program. We filled up our schedule and we meet with great new companies and some familiar ones!

We also got the luck to hear very inspiring panels and to attend to some of the competitions finale. The whole convention was very English-friendly and the attendees were super duper nice.

Plus.. Korea… Is such a beautiful and inspiring country. We felt so lucky of being part of this Adventure!

Cheers to all this memories and many more!

Visual development Worksop at Escola Iboix, Granollers, Spain! 2018

I can’t express how meaningful it was for us to put together a Visual Development Worksop for the students at the Escola Iboix, in Granollers, (Catalunya-Spain). I grew up in a small town very close to Granollers, and I was so excited to teach this kids about Visdev. Growing up we had very little resources and knowledge about the Animation/Entertainment Industry and I feel the little me back in time.. would really had died for an opportunity like this. So I felt it was an honor to give the workshop.

We prepared some exercises, some lectures and the students did an awesome job on their final presentation. We provided a lot of feedback afterwords. Was a very fun experience! We really look forward to keep collaborating and inspiring the students from the Escola Iboix!

Denise our Fall 2017 intern!

That sad time of the year when we have to say "Goodbye, see you soon!" to our intern is here again... Sadness!!! This Fall we had the pleasure to have Denise Caro helping around, currently at the Woodbury University Animation program.  To have a proper farewell we visited our collaborators Alberto Corral and Ryan Hansen, at the Dreamworks Campus. We had a good time! We will miss you Denise, really thanks for your help!

 

 

 

CTN-Xperience 2017!!!!!

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!

Thanks also all the  CTNX  team for their support and extra time for questions!!

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! 

And all of that wouldn't have been possible without the invencible teamwork from of our Studio Manager Maureen Macomber and our Studio MasterMind Katia Grifols! So one more time we survived and succeed to the best Animation Convention of the year! Thank you all for being there!

Month of Books!!

Here some cool news! Finally, two of our very early projects here at the studio has seen the light this month!

Please let me introduce you "Cosas que pasan cuando llevas vida de Artista". This book was started by Katia Grifols, the year before she decided to start Glow in the Dark, so in essence was the book that started everything! It's an autobiography of how those terrible moments in life can bring you the best moments as well. A book that was painful and very rewarding at the same time, very honest and has a sense of humor. This book was sold to Planeta (Spain) about a year and a half ago out of a Pitch at the Salo del comic de Barcelona.

The next book we are very excited to be part of is "Yeguas".  A book published by Ediciones Invisible that collects amazingly inspiring quotes by great feminas illustrated by amazingly talented feminas, where Katia Grifols was selected to be part of.  Katia was given the assignment to illustrate Roxane Gay's quote and she was very excited given she really admires her work and personality.
