This week we spoke with Animatic TO creator Barry A. Sanders! Barry is a local Toronto animator who has been working in the industry over the past 17 years. He has recently created the new monthly animation social get together group, Animatic TO.

Animatic TO is a monthly animation lecture series and social event dedicated to education, inspiration and building community in Toronto's animation scene. It's only in its 3rd session, but the reception has been fantastic!

If you can make it in to Toronto for Wednesday the 18th, come see Kris Pearn (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 co-director) do his lecture!

Adam and Andrew were at the Bit Bazaar Winter Market this weekend. It was a great time had by all! If you didnt go, you missed out on one hell of a festival! The Guys had the chance to talk with some previous guests who had been on the podcast before (Rosemary Brennan, Rachel Kahn) But they also got to chat with some new folks, Like Miles Baker (He helps run TCAF!). Adam and Andrew also get to have a sit down with the overly helpful and talented couple Jenny & Henry Faber. Without them there would be no Bit Bazaar.
The Bazaar had a relaxed vibe of comradery that you dont really see at a lot of the bigger expos, So it definitely stood out as one of the best community efforts put together in a long time. Have a listen to the episode
