Finding Your Voice In Production

Do you find that you hesitate in speaking up during production meetings? Do you feel that your skills aren’t as valuable as those of all of the talented artists around you? I will help you silence that inner voice that constantly second guesses your decisions. I will focus on helping you gain confidence and finding your voice as you move up the production ranks. Do you feel that you don’t have the experience or knowledge to be a part of this circle? Then this circle is for you!

Circle Leader

Jennifer Dahlman

With over 20 years in the animation industry, I am responsible for making the creative vision come to life. Most of my career was spent at DreamWorks Animation, working on movies such as Shrek, Madagascar, and How to Train Your Dragon. I produced a series of shorts with first-time directors while at the animation start-up, Nimble Collective. I am happiest when I’m knee deep in budgeting, scheduling, strategic planning, dailies, caffeine, and developing new tools for artists.
