Animexperience brings the idea of Animex Talk! and Animex Game to a younger audience so that they can get a flavour of the more focussed educational elements of the festival.

Designed with schoolchildren in mind, Animexperience will bring two highly regarded speakers to speak about life in the professional world.

This year, recruitment consultant Rachelle Lewis will explain what it is like to work in animation and special effects and give the audience a taste of what it takes to get a job in the industry, using examples from her many years of experience.

Jim Gentile, who works for Midway Games in the USA, will talk about life in the games industry and show what he gets up to in his day-to-day life working on some of the biggest computer games ever made.

All in all, Animexperience promises to provide an insight into the working lives of many of our speakers in a short, sharp and very exciting burst!
