I recently joined WIA - Women in Animation, and I've been attending the Vancouver chapter events. I have been thoroughly impressed with what they have to offer women in animation/film industry and I just have to spread the news!!
Their current goal is to reach 50/50 by 2025. I think this drive is really important and it's not just related to gender either. If the industry can build working environments that are inclusive and diverse, this will encourage people to apply that would ordinarily feel to intimidated to. At any level you are at, you can help with inclusion. Encourage people to show their work, encourage people to apply for jobs, encourage people full stop.
At the Siggraph WIA Summit I attended on Saturday their shared this paper. The stats are horrifying, and showing all the talk of late hasn't actually been improving the numbers, so now is time for action!
Check out the WIA website and join today regardless of your gender http://womeninanimation.org/
In other news my lack of posts reflect that I've been beavering away at Cat and Moth and we have now formed our lighting team! I can't wait to share the teaser with you, so watch this space!

This post has been a long time coming, Cat and Moth and my next new project has taking over all of life! Cat and Moth now has a completion date for September, eeeek! So it's full steam ahead! If you want to keep up to date, check out our newsletter over on the site, or foolow us on the many social media outlets @catandmoth
It's also got some incredible voice talent, including Will Forte, Maya Rudolph and Terry Crews! It's based on a book by Lois Lowry. It's pretty dark, and which makes for a good combo with Ricky Gervais!
I can't wait to show you more in the future, but for now you'll have to suck up the beautiful concept art above :D
