TAAFI 2014 PHOTOS - Animators Can Code: Game Making

Six animators, six weeks, six video games! Attendees saw the results of the Hand Eye Society's ARTSY GAMES INCUBATOR: ANIMATION EDITION, a workshop where animators brought their unique talents and creativity to an interactive medium for the first time. During the six week program, participants were given access to game-making tools, guest mentors, and community resources. During this panel, the participants showcased their final projects and talked about the process of game creation, as well as the challenges and rewards of applying an animator's skill set to a different mode of storytelling. This was the start of several workshops aimed at introducing artists from different backgrounds to the creative possibilities of video games. The panel was moderated by Sagan Yee and Matt Hammill, with the generous support of the Toronto Animated Image Society and the Ontario Arts Council.

Hosts: Sagan Yee, Matt Hammill

Panelists: Virpi Kettu, Paloma Dawkins, Lilja Petursdottir, Mike McDonnell, Christopher de Castro
