Guy has dreamt of a thriving animation industry in Sydney since his first “letting go” after the end of an animation production in 1997. He’s worked in almost ever area of an animation production. He was a co-founder of The Magnificent Itch and now runs animation studio Poke The Bear.
Kim has a background in animation, and has spent the last three years as a teacher at AIE. He believes that there is lots of great talent that is lost to not getting work.
“There is an opportunity for smaller production houses to take advantage of people that do not want to be a tiny cog in a big wheel, and build exciting local IP. Great local IP can be developed and funded and help to make the local animation industry stronger. “
