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).

    Daniel Bard, Josh Beckett, Michael Bowden, Clay Buchholz, Paul Byrd,

    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.

    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.
