Visual Development Panel at Tuesday's Membership Meeting

Paul Lasaine for Lord of the Rings
Our panel discussion at tomorrow's General Membership Meeting will be Visual Development: Vision and Inspiration, featuring Mike Kurinsky, Paul Lasaine, and Paul Shardlow, and moderated by animator/viz dev artist (and exec board member) Cathy Jones. Pizza and refreshments are served at 6:30 PM, the panel will begin promptly at 7 PM, and the membership meeting will start after the panel (around 8 PM). . . The meeting will take place at the IATSE Local 44 Meeting Hall at 12021 Riverside Drive in North Hollywood (just east of Laurel Canyon). Advance word is that the panelists, who are among the best in the business, will be bringing samples of their work to illustrate the discussion. You'll likely see some amazing animation art that you'd never be able to see otherwise. At the membership meeting we'll be electing delegates to the IATSE District 2 convention Sept. 9-10 in Las Vegas, giving an update of the progress on our new building, and a report on what's going on in animation around town.
