THIS WEEKEND: CTN Expo in Burbank

Guess who’s going to have a booth at the CTN Expo this weekend? Nickelodeon, Disney, Dreamworks, Don Bluth, Cal Arts, Sony Pictures Animation, Warner Bros. Animation, Animboom, Stuart Ng and about 50 others – including studio recruiters, artists with sketchbooks and me (Jerry Beck), where I’ll be selling old stuff like toys, comic books, maybe a few 16mm cartoons, DVDs, and fun stuff like that. Here’s a partial list of vendors.

Everyone who reads Cartoon Brew in Southern California should plan to drop in for a day or two. To help out, tomorrow morning (Wednesday), 10am, right here, we’ll have a contest. I’ll ask a few trivia questions and the prizes will be free VIP passes to this weekend’s animation event — the CTN ANIMATION EXPO in Burbank.

    Is this a worth while even to attend for an indy animator? I don’t know much about it.

    I’d like to just be able to drop by and scoop up some of those classic animation DVD’s from the garage sale, if that’s the stuff that you’ll be dealing! Cartoons, cartoons, I need classic cartoons! I’m starvin’!
