Global animation forum-2019: how it was

On June 1, 2019, the 6th professional forum for artists, animators, and illustrators took place in Moscow. Let us tell you about the event, if you missed it.


The forum gathered 650 artists, animators, designers, screenwriters, producers, and beginners in the animation industry.


This event lasted one day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The forum was held in a large Academic Concert Hall.


Seven animation artists, who worked at Disney, Pixar, Warner Bros, Dreamworks, and other famous studios, shared their experience with the forum guests. The following persons were among the speakers:

  • animation artists Aaron Blaise and Sasha Dorogov;
  • character designer Maxim Kostenko;
  • director Barry Cook;
  • storyboard artist Tim Hodge;
  • expert in animated movies and producer Max Howard;
  • critic and festival director Nobuaki Doi.


The project was supported by 16 partners: Wacom, Toon Boom, Adobe, XP-pen, Parovoz studio, and many other well-known companies. The partners presented their exhibition stands and held a drawing competition with valuable prizes for the winners. The organizer of the event Sasha Dorogov Animation Institute granted every participant a training certificate.


The forum participants talked about modern trends in animation, how the performance technique works in animation, how feelings are generated on the screen, what techniques can be used in character design, in what way a storyboard can be created, how to present your story to producers.

Despite the diversified program, the exchange of experience featured a relaxed atmosphere. The speakers shared their secrets, nuances, professional tricks, life hacks, considered typical mistakes and answered questions.

All the participants received video records of the forum to refresh the memory, experience positive emotions, and get motivated at any time.
