Systems Animator, TDiA, Animation Designer - this hybrid role has existed in some form for over a decade, but it's not clearly understood across the industry. This panel brings a diverse group of representatives from across the industry together to talk shop, discuss the role & the future of applied animation - expect to hear about the best ways to utilize some of the newest technology, what skillsets are most useful in this field & some hot takes about what we could see coming soon!


Attendees will come away with a better understanding of what it's like to work in a hybrid role, the value that it brings to a project and some perspective on the use of cutting edge technologies in the realities of production.

Intended Audience

The perfect audience for this panel falls into two categories - early career/students will learn about a career path that is growing in demand rapidly, and seniors will learn about a skillset that they can bring back to their studio.
