Conversations in Art + Innovation
AN INTERACTIVE LECTURE SERIES FOR THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY
EVERY THIRD THURSDAY AT CREATIVE PINELLAS
Join us for the next installment of Conversations in Art + Innovation as we speak with animator, director and producer Esteban Valdez.
Valdez started his career as an animator producing commercials and music videos before he began directing and producing shows for NickToons Network. In 2010, after establishing the St. Petersburg-based animation studio Echo Bridge, Valdez began to direct and produce on shows such as Axe Cop, Chozen and Major Lazer for FOX, FXX, Amazon Studios and Netflix.
During this month’s conversation we’ll take a look at Florida’s rich history in animation, that state of the industry today and what the future holds for animators and artists alike.
