Happy International Animation Day!

It's hard to believe that the first public performance of projected moving images was over 130 years ago. We came a long way since then and we can't even imagine what awaits us.

Here's to the animators, storytellers, and dreamers who make the impossible possible. Let's keep the animation spirit alive, today and every day! 🚀

Hold onto your seats, because the Anijammin’ segment at IAD 2023 will bring together the artistic brilliance of multiple animators. How? Each animator passes on the last frame of their shot - the next animator has to take that frame, craft their own sequence in their own style before passing on their last frame.

We can't contain our excitement for this collaborative animation magic! It's going to be an explosion of creativity like you've never seen before!

Here’s a couple example to get you all excited:
1.) Anijam III – Family Camp (2016)

2.) My Party! – Dillan Murillo & Senna Church (2020)
