Upcoming ASIFA-East Events

Here at ASIFA-East, we have an exciting event lineup this winter/spring.  Here are a few highlights with more to come!!

Steven ZelinDo you have questions on how to prepare your taxes?  We know as an artist, the specifics on this can be confusing.  On Wednesday, February 20, 2013, Steven Zelin, The Singing CPA, will join us for our Taxes For Freelancers event. During this training session, you will hear Steven’s funny songs about taxes, gain insights into the latest changes in tax law, and hear solid general tax advice for animators and other freelancers.  Bring all your tax questions and be prepared to have some fun singing along.  Join us at a local pub for networking and drinks afterwards!

BP_4K_LOGO_smOn Monday, March 4th, we have an exciting evening planned with the creators of  batteryPop.  This new online kids network  will discuss their development system and how to get your kids content in front of the audience it was intended for.  They are dedicated to helping creators find, and connect with 6-14 year old viewers. By hosting your content on their site, they can help you to grow your online audience, collect feedback from kids, and use that data when you pitch to networks.  We are holding this event at M1-5, a perfect setting for networking afterwards.  Come mingle with your animation industry peers and be sure to bring your business cards!!
