Shelley Page on Animex

10 January 08


I love Animex! Every year, in the depth of yet another miserable British winter, you can always guarentee a brilliantly warm reception, much laughter and meetings of like minds at this very special event!

The aspect of Animex that particularly impresses me at every edition is the fantastically high quality of the student work represented at the Animex Awards. It’s wonderful that schools from as far afield as China, Canada, the USA and around Europe send their best work to compete for these awards. Animex provides an excellent showcase for these exciting new talents – and has acted as a springboard for many successful careers in animation and visual effects. The professional presentations and workshops are always truly inspiring – as are the discussions afterwards in the bar/over dinner/over yet another very late drink!

Animex is also an event that reaches out into the local community – with great events that include both adults and children and screenings of new animation and games projects for everyone to enjoy.

This is an amazingly fast-moving industry – innovation is happening on an almost daily basis – and Animex always can be relied on to provide both current students, educators and professionals with vital updates on the latest developments. Long may it continue!

See you in the Uni bar!
