- Anna Hollinrake Game artist and one of BAFTA’s 2017 Breakthrough Brits.
- JoAnne Salmon – Animator at LoveLove Films
The CMC lists the Following information for the panel:
Gender parity in the entertainment industry is not a given – recent news stories and campaigns have made that very clear. But sometimes the best way to address bad practice is to demonstrate good practice.
So that is what this panel aims to do. In the first instance, we will celebrate the many women in animation who have succeeded in the animation business, by asking some of them to describe their journeys and how they have navigated any obstacles along the way.
Following this, the discussion will move to ask questions around equality and inclusion and share learning’s from our sector of women in animation. Centuries of conditioning may not change things over night, but channelling positive examples of where it does work, certainly goes a long way to help nudge progress in the right direction for women in animation
