Posted by Amanda Toney

Happy Wednesday Stage 32!

We hope this blog finds you healthy, happy, safe, and creative. Over the last two months in quarantine, we have been working tirelessly to make Stage 32 your online home to stay connected with over 650,000 film, tv, and new media creatives from across the globe - no hand sanitizer or face masks required. Stage 32 is committed to bringing you entertainment, education, and community from the comfort and safety of your own home. 

Now, we are excited to host another free virtual event to help you stay up-to-date about the state of the animation industry featuring some of the top writers, directors, and actors of the genre. We invite you to virtually join us on Tuesday, May 26th at 1pm PST for our Current State of the Animation Industry During COVID-19 panelRegister here.

In this panel discussion, we will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all aspects of the animation industry and how everyone is all adapting to the "new normal". How is the animation industry operating with the shutdown? How are they adjusting existing and future animation productions? What can you be doing now? All of these questions, and more, will be covered by our wonderful panel of guests. 

As the Managing Director here at Stage 32, I am thrilled to be personally hosting this incredible panel. You will hear from top industry professionals that can offer thorough points of view from multiple facets of the animation business:

  • Mike Mitchell - is a director, producer, actor, and former animator best known for his work on THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART, SHREK, TROLLS, PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE OUT OF WATER and more.
