Animation Exchange Schedule


Here is the full Animation Exchange Schedule! On Tuesday, February 28th, from 2-10 PM Pacific, you can join in on the fun at The entire event will be free to watch and the recordings will be available on the same channel! As you can see, there isn’t a moment throughout where we won’t have animators, technical animators, animation programmers and designers talking shop and sharing their process. And throughout it all, we will have people manning the chat to take your questions. You can find descriptions of each talk here.

And during the stream, we will be accepting donations for the IGDA Foundation. Their dedication to empowering future game devs across all disciplines and backgrounds made them a no brainer to partner up with. Sharing knowledge and opportunities, with a focus on diverse participants, is core to what #AnimX and the IGDA foundation is all about.

So make sure to watch the stream, and engage through the chat and #AnimX. See you there!
