Speaker Series: Virtual Studio Tour for PAs

When we think about working in animation, we often think about a few major players like Disney, Dreamworks, etc. But there are so many studios, production companies, and visual effects houses where you can use your skills and thrive in your animation career. In this circle, we will take a virtual “”studio tour”” to many of these places. At each session, you will meet someone from a different studio who will share what each place is like, how they got started, and how you can take the next steps to break into this exciting industry. Through these conversations with industry professionals, you will also learn more about making meaningful connections, building resumes, and what it’s like to be a PA in the industry.
