We are delighted to tell you that we have partnered with ASIFA-South! They'll be joining us at TERMINUS to share their knowledge and experience on animation and the animation industry with all of you!
For those of you unfamiliar, ASIFA-South is an animation society that looks to help animators of all mediums learn, create, and show their work locally and globally. They host workshops, mixers, showcases, and even have their own festival for animated shorts. ASIFA-South is part of a larger animation society that was formed in France in 1960 and now has chapters all over the globe. They work with local & international artists and help train and program animation to be shown all over the southern U.S.
They'll be hosting a few panels and workshops including THIS exciting storyboarding workshop:
