2018 Animation Exchange Recorded Talks


Photo by Melissa Shim

Well that came and went fast! What a complete honor and joy it was to spend 10+ hours with some of the most passionate and dedicated animators I know. I am continually humbled and inspired by their work. I hope you were able to catch some of the stream live, to take part in the chat and fun. But regardless, we have the entire Animation Exchange ready to be seen again and again, with each talk broken out into its own video, so that you can enjoy it in all of its glory!

Please make sure to fill out our short survey about the stream so that we can continue to make it better each year. And oh yes, there will be another year!
