The Manchester Animation Festival kicks off tomorrow!

Manchester Animation Festival is the UK’s largest Animation Festival dedicated to the celebration of the animated art form.

Hosted at HOME in Manchester, the festival brings one of the UK’s biggest animation hubs together and invites the international community to join them to delight in all things animated.

Our Manchester-based Animators Billy Mpetha and Nick Clackett will be speaking as part of the ‘Making it in Manchester’ feature at this year’s Manchester Animation Festival!

The talk is geared at showcasing all the animation work currently being produced in and around Manchester. Billy and Nick will be giving an overview of Brown Bag Films, before going into detail on the production Nella the Princess Knight currently being worked on in our Manchester studio, as well as discussing Toon Boom Harmony, the software used to animate the show. 

The talk takes place Thursday, 16th November at 3:30pm.
