Animation : Any other BIPOC animators in this group working on an animation with BIPOC? by Kevin Jackson

Any other BIPOC animators in this group working on an animation with BIPOC?

Last year(2020) during the pandemic, business slowed down. Two companies that support creatives partnered to provide a grant to help creatives stay afloat. I received one of those grants and in return I show chased the behind the scenes of an animation I am currently working on while divulging some history that inspired it.

The companies that provided this grant were Kingston Creative and Catapult. They supported a lot of artists. You can check out my piece here. It's about a Jamaican World War II fighter pilot and an unfortunate experience he had during the war.

Hey, Kevin! Congrats on receiving that grant, that's awesome! This is such interesting stuff! I'm in development with an EP on an animated pilot, but I'm not at liberty to say more at this time. You're on my list of the first people I'll chat up once I can, though!
