Over the past eight years, CMC Education and ASIFA Central USA have been working together teaching animation and holding workshops for children. The work created has been featured in festivals around the world, the most recent of which was the Leeds International Film Festival in England.

Now we are happy host the third in a series of animation showcases and Animators Open Mic events. The first featured a presentation by animator and animation historian Ray Pointer who shared rare footage and highlights from his new book “The Art and Inventions of Max Fleischer: American Animation Pioneer.”

The second showcased the best of Ottawa Animation Festival International 2016. It doesn’t get any better than that.

If you haven’t attended in the past, don’t plan on seeing your usual Saturday morning cartoons. Animators from all over Michigan and even surrounding states come to show works in progress, their latest completed works, as well as to see some of the best animation from around the world.

This month we are screening the best of RYO "Roll Your Own" 2016 animation festival. You’ll also see the premiere of the Crane Wives new music video, “Nothing at All,” by local animator Brad Yarhouse, followed by an animators open mic. As Brad likes to say, “Without community we die! Let’s energize and network! Long Live Animation!"

The Animators Open Mic event will be on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at the Wealthy Theatre at 6 p.m.. This is event is free and open to all.

Animators wishing to share their work should contact Brad Yarhouse, [email protected]. See you there!
