Every year students graduate from animation programs having learned the principles of animation and the latest software. What they probably haven’t learned is how to get that first job–and, more importantly, how to stay in the animation business and build career equity once they have gotten there. Steve Hickner’s information-packed talk, based on his book, Animating Your Career, is the antidote to the problem of getting that job, and building your career from that starting point.*
Steve Hickner has spent over thirty years in the animation industry working with some of the most fabled studios–Disney, DreamWorks, Amblimation, Aardman, Hanna-Barbera–and he has experienced the boom and bust cycles of the business. Join him as he dispenses his practical advice about breaking into the animation studios. His talk is full of personal anecdotes and life lessons that will help prepare you as you enter into one of the most rewarding and fun professionals imaginable.
