NEW YORK (MARCH 26, 2019) – We’re rapidly moving towards Kids Comic Con (KCC) the annual children’s outreach event. It’s slated for Saturday, April 20th at the Bronx Community College from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Our theme is, TEAM Titans! And the team is growing large and strong.
In an industry dominated by white men, these creators hope to pave a way for women and non-binary people of color for more nuanced portrayals of Black characters.
Describe an insecurity that you had while growing up. Has your perspective changed? If so, how did you overcome this insecurity?
On Twitter, you’re pretty vocal about appropriate representation in your industry, and most recently, a lot of your tweets have pointed to including black women in conversations in the writing and animation rooms. So, in your opinion, what Black, female animators should we be on the lookout for?
A collection of animators who have had decades of combined experiences at companies such as Pixar, DreamWorks Animation and Disney have come together to create a new series for young adults.
According to the group, the series will have characters from backgrounds that are under-represented in animation. They have set up an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise money in order to produce a 3D CGI animated pilot.
We are in transition. Summer’s over now, and the air’s getting cold and delicate. Well not really, because where I’m from it’s “Summer” 365, so I’m actually referring to where I am now, where I actually started writing this post. All over the world, everything becomes naturally beautiful with the appearance of the autumn season, and although they say “Melancholy is the autumn” because of the falling of the leaves , something beautiful is blooming over here in New York City.
