TOMORROW IN NY: Pitching Panel

Pitcher

Tomorrow evening, ASIFA-East is presenting the panel Animation Development: From Pitch to Production. It’s moderated by David Levy, whose excellent new book of the same name was released last week. Panelists are Carl W. Adams (co-creator, Assy McGee), Janice Burgess (creator of The Backyardigans), Fran Krause (creator), Debra Solomon (creator) and yours truly. Frankly, I think the only reason I’m on the panel is because I think the pitching and development process nowadays is wasteful, misguided, and total BS. And now that I’ve made my position clear, I don’t think I even need to show up. The fun starts at 7pm in the 3rd floor theater of the School of Visual Arts (209 E. 23rd Street).

  • not the best image to match your copy. may i suggest any of these pitchers? any one of them is far superior to your pick:
    Daniel Bard, Josh Beckett, Michael Bowden, Clay Buchholz, Paul Byrd,
    Manny Delcarmen, Jon Lester, Hideki Okajima, Jonathan Papelbon,
    Ramon Ramirez, Takashi Saito, Junichi Tazawa, Billy Wagner, Tim Wakefield,

    Doug: This image is the best choice if you’re from KC ;)

  • For a panel that includes the guy who co-created Assy McGee you should have used a photo of a Washington Nationals guy.

  • Tominia

    Amid are you from KC? And with the AL’s best ERA, Ks, and innings Zach is the best pick from anywhere

  • I like how you’ve chosen a pitcher from the Kansas City Royals to illustrate your point. I live near KC and I should know they suck.

  • you guys should use more non-cartoon images to mark posts you REALLY want to draw attention to.
    I was scrolling down and was like LOL WAT?

  • Greinke’s great, but if you wanted to really push the panel you’d use an image from the World Fucking Champion Philadelphia Phillies. Rookie of the Year frontrunner J. A. Happ, maybe.

  • Frankly, I think the only reason I’m on the panel is because I think the pitching and development process nowadays is wasteful, misguided, and total BS. And now that I’ve made my position clear, I don’t think I even need to show up.

    I <3 Amid.
