The door to Essex is kept locked but we will be there to let people in at 7:00pm,. If you RSVP I will look out for you. If you're going to be late or if you arrive late you can also text or call me (Darcy) and I will come let you in- (513) 304-9780

Please email me or reply to this post to rsvp so I know how many chairs to bring!

More details:

We will be giving away free Anomalisa posters to everyone who comes and we will also give 4 lucky people a free Behind the Scenes book about the making of Anomalisa since it is in wide release now.

Evidence of free stuff!
If you have a portfolio that you want reviewed or have any questions about anything animation related, also bring that along because this would be a good time to get that stuff answered.


Bring any art supplies or other animation-related stuff that you don't want anymore but you can't bring yourself to throw away, we are also having a supply swap!

Other people having a supply swap! Ours will be cooler.
 You don't have to bring anything to take stuff home but its a good opportunity to get some use out of stuff that's gathering dust at your place, and saving someone money in the process.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

First Directors Round Table Meeting Recap

The first Animation Directors Round Table Meeting ever, which was last night, was absolutely great.

We went over everyone's projects and goals and talked about whatever issues we were having. Everyone was very supportive and encouraging to each other, we set goals for the next meeting, talked about technical issues, and decided upon meeting frequency, and we had some nice booze and trail mix at the same time at the lovely Overlook Lodge.

After the official business was done we listened to some great live music and talked to each other about various artsy topics.  There were a few new faces who I hope we see again, and a few returning ones that I always love to see!

We decided to hold the meetings monthly. To make it easy lets set it on the first Wednesday of each month- so the next Directors meeting is on Sept 7th at 7:00pm- venue TBD! If you want to be signed up to the group for the purpose of working on a specific personal project, email me (Darcy) at

We will…
