One Plus Hub/Women In Animation/Women In Children’s Media/ASIFA East Networking event!
Reporting done by Katie Cropper.
This past Thursday I had the pleasure of attending a sequel to a similar event held this past fall. I have to say the second was better than the first! Held at West 3rd Common the turn out was good for the reasonably sized front section of the bar. As we came in I was greeted by the wonderful Jill Gilbert (http://www.oneplushub.com) and Lisa Goldman (http://www.womeninanimation.com). At the beginning of the night I was mostly meeting writers and producers, which was refreshing since I personally spend a lot of time with visual artists and animation artists but towards the end of the event the students were going strong. A good number had just finished or were in the final stages of making their thesis films. The conversations were robust and delightful and it was great to meet people that were excited to find the next new direction for their work. All in all a success and I plan to make it out to the next one!
