Free online event offers an immersive week-long retreat for artists to reboot, recharge and reset, featuring talks, demos, scholarships, and interactive experiences.
BURBANK -- While the in-person aspects of the annual CTN animation eXpo move to 2021, CTN, in partnership with Visit Burbank, has reimagined the 2020 edition as a virtual, online event. CTN-Live, which has a “Revive and Thrive” theme, will take place online November 16-22. This will not be just another online event; the new format is designed as a week-long retreat to reboot, recharge and reset for artists to work together toward new landscapes, channels, and opportunities.
“I would be remiss if I didn’t do this,” noted CTN founder and producer, Tina Price. “I feel it is important for us to support the community now more than ever.”
Offered free of charge, CTN-LIVE will be a 24/7 immersive creative weeklong retreat open to anyone looking to recharge their artistic energies and to get ready for 2021. This one-of-a kind event will offer interactive experiences, coaching, talks, demos, recruiting, scholarships, and current topics that are resonating in all our lives and to help launch us as creators into 2021.
“As the animation capital of the world and home to entertainment companies big and small, Burbank is our physical home and largest supporter of the international animation community,” added Price. “Partnering with Visit Burbank makes perfect sense as it offers an invaluable relationship overflowing with opportunities for both business and creative professionals. The outpouring of support from everyone I’ve spoken to in the community is simply amazing. I invite everyone to join us this year as entrance to the main event is free of charge. This is a particularly challenging time for a lot of artists, and CTN along with the community hopes to bring some inspiration, optimism and opportunities to diverse artists of all ages, ethnicities and locations in this important 'give back’ campaign.”
