2019 Animation Exchange Schedule and Times


The schedule is set and since we last talked, we have added a couple more talks to the event! Starting at 12:00pm Pacific Time on Tuesday, March 19th, get your favorite animation friends gathered around a screen and enjoy all the knowledge sharing and fun we have in store! Though keep in mind that the specific times of each talk are subject to move back as the day goes on as talks run long or transition times run longer than expected.

You can see descriptions of each talk in our previous post. And if you want to join in the festivities yourself, make sure you sign up for the 2019 Tea Time Animation Jam, being held the weekend before the Exchange! We are getting some fun prizes lined up, just like last year!

See you all soon on the Twitch Office channel!
