Shanghai Show & Tell

PosterThe Shanghai Show & Tell, the second China Animation & Game Network event, went down at La Cava in Shanghai’s Former French Concession last Tuesday 11th March.  A networking party for animation and game industry professionals, the event aimed to reflect the creativity of the people involved, and provide an open showcase for their talents.

iacc-Detao sponsored the event, buying our first 100 guests a drink.  In all there were over 130 attendees covering the full spectrum of disciplines within the world of animation and gaming – directors, producers, animators, concept and storyboard artists, game designers, sound designers, script writers, HR staff, recruiters, executives, and programmers.  Alongside the independents and freelancers were guests from companies like Oriental DreamWorks, Tencent,  Netease, 2K,  Activision, Original Force, Crystal CG, yU+co, Spicy Horse, Autodesk, Dancing CG and Taomee, to name just a few.  Guests and speakers travelled from every corner of Shanghai, and even from as far as Nanjing and Suzhou.

We were especially pleased to welcome Tang Boqing, the co-creator of the internet smash hit short animation Entrance Exam, who flew in all the way from Chengdu to introduce the screening of his film.

Hosted by CAGN’s Chris and Janice, the focus of the evening was on quick-fire, 3-minute ‘show & tells’ by China-based professionals and artists.  Dan Sarto, founder and editor-in-chief of Animation World Network and iacc-DeTao master, kicked off the proceedings, reflecting on the varying qualities of the breakfasts he has enjoyed/endured at the animation festivals he has been attending across the globe over the past 18 years.  A broad range of show and tells ensued in Chinese and English, including game demos, CG reels, controversial ads, sound creation demos, manga, motion graphics and short films (animated and documentary).
