Today, Post New York Alliance (PNYA) announced its next free session in its “Post Break” webinar series. “The Business of Animation: Past, Present and Future” will take place this Thursday, August 27, at 4pm. Scheduled to appear are James Belfer of Cartuna in Brooklyn and Mary Nittolo of the STUDIO NYC, who will discuss how their companies have gotten through the pandemic and how they see the future of animation.
Here is some more information on the panel, the panelists and moderator Yana Collins Lehman:
“Like many companies in the entertainment and advertising industries, animation studios have had to rethink their business models in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this lively, 1-hour session, Belfer and Nittolo will review animation’s evolving landscape. Are tax credits offered by the state of New York helping or hurting animation producers? Where will future opportunities lie? What positions are animation studios looking to fill? If you are a young animation professional, a seasoned veteran or simply someone who cares about the industry’s future, you won’t want to miss this insightful session. PNYA Chair Yana Collins Lehman will moderate. Following the webinar, attendees will have an opportunity to join small, virtual breakout groups for discussion and networking.”
