Manchester Animation Festival, UK’s largest Animation Festival, is coming up in November and this year we're delighted to announce that Brown Bag Films are teaming up with the festival as industry partners!

Together we'll be introducing a panel series titled Animated Answers, bringing together people from the industry to answer questions from the audience about issues anyone working in the industry or interested in a career in animation can relate to. Check out the list of Animated Answers panels taking place below:


Little or Large, Which Studio is Best for You
Animation studios come in all shapes and sizes, with varying projects. Would you fare better as a big fish in a small pond, or would you prefer more water to swim in? With the help of your questions our experts uncover the pros and cons of each setup.

Date & Time: Tue, 13 Nov - 11:00

Switching Specialisms
Animation can provide you with a rich and varied career, but should you limit yourself to a single specialism? Changing specialisms can be nerve wrecking but with the help of your questions our panel of experts will find ways to hold nerve and make the most of your career.

Date & Time: Tue, 13 Nov - 12:30

What Makes the Perfect Animator
For this event our panel will be discussing the perfect animator, who are they? What do they do? How do you become one? With the help of your questions we search high and low for this mythical beast!

Date & Time: Wed, 14 Nov - 11:00

Production Pipelines, Finding your Place in the Flow
The animation production pipeline is key to making the work, work! A smooth running production can only be run by a good team. With the help of your questions our panel will untangle the web of production, and how to ensure you’re doing the best for the project to ensure the best laid plans don’t go awry.

Date & Time: Wed, 14 Nov - 12:30


So come along armed with questions and put them to our panel of experts!
