Description

Join us at WeWork Hollywood on Tues. 11/13 as producer/event planner, Jed Hammel, moderates a discussion with a diverse panel of animation industry leaders as they share some of their experiences, industry best practices, and offer their vision for where they see animation heading in the future.
Fancy panelists include:

  • May Chan, WGA Award-winning Writer & Producer. Co-EP for DreamWorks/Netflix's "Spirit: Riding Free." Past writing credits include: Avatar the Last Airbender, Voltron: Legendary Defender, and Carmen Sandiego.
  • Emily Linyun Dean, Artist/Filmmaker - Story artist on the LEGO movies. Nominated for an Australian Academy Award.

  • Underground video/animation VJ EDM artist Bobbie Bunn will be projecting her work throughout the space.

Jed plans these events because he is passionate about creating unique experiences, continually learning from people following their passion, and he believes in the power of bringing people together...and because he is a fan of cheese plates.


Animation is an ever-changing industry, medium, and art form(s). An understanding of emerging technology, age-old storytelling devices, and changes in how audiences are consuming content, is critical for advancing both the art and the business of animation. So join us for an evening of learning and community

(A few daring audience members may be encouraged to do the "We Will Rock You" clap/stomp to welcome our panel to the stage, but we're playing that one by ear.)
