This was a mini-day conference in Edinburgh's picturehouse cinema which was great fun. As a group we brainstormed the ideas for creating a typical animation series aimed at kids in the morning and then got some really inspiring talks in the afternoon by people working in the industry. Especially great was Oscar Wright who had story-boarded on Scott Pilgrim vs The World and warned us that after university there will be around 5-8 years of working on rubbish before you end up somewhere good. It will be a long wait. Also on display in the cafe bar were original cels from Akira. Amazing stuff. Thanks to Mark Haldane for taking the photographs.
