Manimation 2013: New Players, New Perspectives

Thurs 12th December 2013, 10.30am – 6.30pm
The Sharp Project, Thorp Road, Manchester M40 5BJ

The third Manimation daytime event explores new practices and new partnerships in production, distribution and funding

Where are the alternative sources of distribution and funding? Who’s making money in these new spaces and how? What are the creative opportunities and challenges in new approaches? And where do animation and interactive media meet? How interactive media companies and publishers are functioning in the kids’ space and how they relate to animated content – online, in apps, in motion comics and on TV.
