Getting involved in industry Groups and activities outside day-to-day work is something I try and make time for wherever possible. Very stimulating.
I sit on the Industry Panel for Skillset's Media Academy here in Wales and we're looking to expand the related Industry sub-Panel on Animation/Games and Visual Effects to bring in more creatives and practitioners working in Digital content - in all it's forms.
This, along with the newly-formed Wales Animation Movement (WAM!), hopes to bring together more people working in Animation and Digital in Wales with a view to more energetic meetups/events, collaboration and projects.
So if your working in the Industry (company or freelance) and you'd be interested in hooking up with like-minded Creatives and Animators in Wales, leave your details here or email the WAM Facebook group at firstname.lastname@example.org
