There are only 70 tickets available for this first VIP set of panels and the deadline for the early bird rate ends on the 31st August 23. If you are a senior executive working across all divisions in animation and L&M this event is perfect for you.
The event organisers will also share with the audience their details of the conference’s plans going forward into 2024.
Get Animated will become a CPD accredited educational series program – with its focus on educating the production workforce of the animation industry in the UK solely on the aspects of how the business works and not the creative and technical side of the industry.
Seminars and panels throughout 2024 in Birmingham and London will cover trademarks, copyright, contract law, employment, raising finance, ideas on commercial potential through development, L&M, product development of merchandise and how IPs become commercial hits – right through to what it takes to become entrepreneurial and run independent studios.
Get Animated UK will help students of animation and those already in junior and senior production roles understand the business side of Animation which will help our industry and UK plc.
Ryan Beaird – CEO of Get Animated and Brands Retail conferences says – “Those that know me see that I straddle both the creative side of animation to the commercial and branding side of the industry. The global animation industry is going through massive changes, and international competition is huge – so we want the UK animation industry workforce to have a better understanding of the business from the ground up. This will create more entrepreneurs, more UK created IP that stays British and diversify our creation and output of UK IP such as adult animation, anime and digital animated short form content”.
