Animex is a festival of Games, Animation and VFX held annually at Teesside University. It features industry names from around the world who come to speak to students and the public about their work.
Now in it’s 20th year it shows no signs of slowing down.
Notable games speakers from previous years include: Matthew Stoneham – Principal Technical Artist at Ninja Theory, Anna Podedworna – Concept Artist at CD Projekt Red and Richard Oud – Lead animator at Guerrilla Games.
As well as being a public event the festival is a great opportunity for students to talk to the speakers and get feedback on their show reels.
We sat down with Tim Brunton to discuss what the event entails, how its growing and what its like organising an event like this and you can tune into the podcast below.
The event takes place from 13th – 17th May.
