For three and a half years, this spinoff group of animators from ASIFA-SF has added something new to the organization: They meet 5 or 6 times a year for screenings of member’s work-in-progress, and offer constructive feedback. When the group was started by Julie Bayless, all that she really wanted to do was connect with other struggling, isolated artists. But over time, a core group developed, and most of them either finished films, won awards, or got full-time work in the process. Coincidence?
You can join the party too—animators at all levels are welcome. Just bring some footage, artwork or just an idea to talk about. Leave a message here on the site and we’ll get back to you with directions. Snacks will be served.
