From Fanboy to Filmmaker: A Case Study on How to Make a Successful Animated Film

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn how one filmmaker turned a poem he wrote to his kid sister into an international cinematic sensation by enlisting his childhood heroes - Back to the Future's Christopher Lloyd, Academy Award winner Kathy Bates and musical legend Neil Young - to tell a seven-minute, animated love story, now being developed as a major motion picture. Follow the journey of this hand-drawn animated film from the living room to the Cineplex, and learn how you can leverage your creative project to launch the life you want to lead. Featuring writer/director Jonah D. Ansell, composer Chris Thomas, art director Eric Vennemeyer, lead animator Abe Dieckman, and a screening of the animated film Cadaver, hailed by MTV as "darkly beautiful."
