The AniMazing Spotlight website is full of information on this year’s festival, coming up in just 3 weeks, September 4 & 5, at Woodbury University, in Burbank. Visit their web site at www.animazspot.com, then click the big white panel at the top of the Home page, with Lou Romano’s Juggler, which he designed exclusively for the festival. Clicking this panel takes you to their Festival page. If you scroll down you see all the festival events, one of which we’ll talk about next, screenings of all the shorts nominated in various categoies, advertising opportunities, collectables to purchase, awards presentations, eateries near by, and more.
But, the highlight for us is the very first “Toon in to the World of Animation” event, outside of this podcast. We are hosting an event on Sunday, from 12:30 to 1:30, in Section 3, called “I Did it My Way“, which features about two dozen of our Toon In interviews, talking about how they got interested in getting into animation. It’s quite fascinating to hear, and see, them talk about the same question, and it gives you a chance to see the people you could only listen to on this podcast. If you decide to attend please come up and say hello. I’ve enjoyed doing these interviews so much, I’d love to meet some of you listeners.
Also, before I sign off, we want to mention once again, that we will soon be getting back to putting up more interviews, after the AniMazing Spotlight Festival, of course. So, look for some new interviews, hopefully well before the end of the year. Needless to say, we’ve been extremely busy, thanks for your patience, your host, Tee Bosustow
