“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.
