ANI-JAM 19 Workshop!

ASIFA - anijam-header19ANNOUNCING: ANI-JAM 19! Join us on Feb 23 at the Community Media Center or via SKYPE at 1:00 EST for the start of this years ANI-JAM. We will be working as a group to create the concept based on this years ASIFA IAD poster. The poster has not been officially released yet but will be before we begin. It’s crazy cool. (take my word for it 🤓) Come with your creative thinking caps! Let me know in the comments if you are interested!

Wow. it was a huge success! it not only was featured on, the International Website but also for several of the showings around the world on International Animation Day! See it here:

Glad you asked. It’s when a group of animators get together, decide on a loose theme or goal, and working with a deadline or other constraints create a short piece of animation. Each Artist creates a brief bit of animation that is strung together with the other participant’s animation to create a crazy but somewhat cohesive short film. If that doesn’t make sense see the examples below.

TO PARTICIPATE: You must be a paid member of ASIFA Central. (Here is how to become a member:

Meet in person or remotely on February 23 at 1:00 – 3:00 EST. In person at the Community Media Center (1130 Wealthy St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506) OR remotely. Please send an email to for additional information.

-As soon as the poster is officially announced, I will post it here for everyone who is interested to start thinking about the creative solution to doing an ANI-JAM with it.
