This weekend, TAG representatives talked up the benefits and purposes of unionization in entertainment at the CTN Animation Expo. For the fourth year in a row, we spoke with members, students and animation enthusiasts until our voices gave out. Tina Price and the crew at CTN continue to impress as the scale of the show has once again exceeded the previous year. Two outdoor areas were set up to expand the Burbank Marriott Hotel and Convention Center space in order to accommodate the growing number of animation enthusiasts that attend this event.
The seminars, artist demonstrations, portfolio reviews and ample number of exhibitors provided plenty of ways to spend the three days of the event. We look forward to returning next year. For those so inclined, please enjoy the slideshow of pictures we captured after the break.
The CTN three-day expo gets larger every year. Lots of presentations. Many, many exhibition booths. Lots of portfolio reviews. A bit pricy for animation students, but many professionals were in attendance. I caught up with a lot of folks I hadn't seen in awhile and managed to talk myself hoarse.
