The State Of TV Ani­ma­tion Devel­op­ment” will be the sub­ject of a panel dis­cus­sion at the gen­eral mem­ber­ship meet­ing of The Ani­ma­tion Guild on Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 25.

Devel­op­ment”: that enig­matic place where all tele­vi­sion shows get their start. What’s hap­pen­ing in TV ani­ma­tion devel­op­ment today? How does it work, and what are they cur­rently excited about? What are they look­ing for, and what makes a great pitch?

The panel will be hosted by TAG exec­u­tive board mem­ber Karen Carnegie John­son. Pan­elists will include Jenna Boyd (senior vice-president of ani­ma­tion devel­op­ment, Nick­elodeon), Jonathan Davis (exec­u­tive vice-president of com­edy devel­op­ment and ani­ma­tion, Fox Ani­ma­tion), Eric Homan (vice-president, devel­op­ment, Fred­er­a­tor) and Michael McGa­hey (vice-president, devel­op­ment, Dis­ney Tele­vi­sion Animation).

Mem­ber­ship meet­ings offer TAG mem­bers an oppor­tu­nity to recon­nect with the Guild, inter­act with the Exec­u­tive Board, raise con­cerns and hear about the state of the indus­try. While not manda­tory, atten­dance and par­tic­i­pa­tion are key fac­tors in keep­ing TAG abreast of mat­ters in the workplace.

The mem­ber­ship decides how and when the union can act. Par­tic­i­pa­tion on your part is the foun­da­tion to the strength our con­tract and poli­cies hold. Come and be a part of the process of keep­ing TAG’s lever­age focused and strong.

Pizza and refresh­ments are avail­able at 6:30 p.m. The meet­ing begins at 7 p.m.

Mem­ber­ship meet­ings are held in the meet­ing hall of The Ani­ma­tion Guild. It’s located at 1105 North Hol­ly­wood Way in Bur­bank, Cal­i­for­nia, between Mag­no­lia and Chandler.
