Sito Speaks at the TAG Computer Lab

To celebrate its fourth anniversary, the Animation Guild Computer Lab will present a discussion with Tom Sito on Monday, April 21.

Tom is the President Emeritus of the Animation Guild. He has worked as an animator, storyboard artist and director, most recently on Click and Clack's As The Wrench Turns for PBS, and he has taught animation at UCLA and USC. He is the author of Drawing The Line: The Untold Story of the Animation Unions from Bosko to Bart Simpson, published by University of Kentucky Press.

Tom will discuss topics ranging from education to how traditional art is being affected by computer technology; and how the employment side of animation is being affected as well.

The discussion will be held at the Guild's offices at 4729 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood, starting at 7 pm. The event is free of charge, but seating is limited. RSVP to (you will receive a reply from

Thanks Jeff, it should be a great evening, and I appreciate Tom coming in to give this talk. It's the artists who create animation, not the equipment.

But our Lab is here to help our members cope with the technology, and then help them improve their digital skills. I hope to keep this resource available to every Guild member in the future.

Drat! Sorry I'm going to miss Tom's discussion, but I'm going to be speaking at Disney the same evening.

I had the pleasure of working with Tom on, "Click and Clack," last year, and his book on Animation unions is a great read.
