This could of been the perfect opportunity to network and dive in the animation industry right at home, Miami. But here I come to find out about it two days after it’s over! What are the odds of that? Bad timing, I guess. But now that I know about it, I’ll keep my eyes and ears open for it next year. My interest with the hopes attending kind of reveals what’s been going through my mind this pass few weeks. For one, animation has been a big part of my creative homework. The technical and incorporation aspect of it in my filmmaking has been a huge motivation for new stories. From the actual animation through the use of programs like Illustrator, After Effects, and Cinema 4D, to writing, industry news, and now to maybe launching a kids and entertainment channel to test some new stuff. With all of this said, the Kidscreen Summit could of been a nice thing to attend . But not having anything in hand, could of been a waste of time for me and others. So, next year we might have something to present to people who know people that knows people that pays people to do what I do.
