NEW YORK CITY – The heads of two of New York's leading animation studios will discuss prospects for their industry in the next issue of Post Break, the weekly webinar series of Post New York Alliance (PNYA). James Belfer from Brooklyn's Cartuna and Mary Nittolo from STUDIO NYC will show how their companies survive the pandemic and how they plan to thrive in the future. The free event is scheduled for Thursday, August 27th at 4:00 p.m.
Like many companies in the entertainment and advertising industry, animation studios had to rethink their business models after the COVID-19 pandemic. In this hour-long session, Belfer and Nittolo will examine the evolving landscape of animation and discuss whether New York state tax credits help or harm animation producers. You will examine where future opportunities lie and what positions animation studios want to fill.
Young animation professionals, seasoned veterans, and anyone concerned about the future of the industry won't want to miss this insightful session. PNYA chairman Yana Collins Lehman will moderate. Following the webinar, participants have the opportunity to join small virtual breakout groups for discussion and networking.
