“World Domination Through Animation”? If anyone knows about that, it’s Michael Hirsh, and he’ll be sharing his knowledge in a master class at the World Animation and VFX Summit in Marina del Rey, California, on November 4th.
Hirsh, the principal at Toronto’s The Entertainment and Media Finance Group Inc. (“TEAM”), as well as Vice Chairman of DHX, is known as the force behind three internationally recognized successful animation businesses: Nelvana Limited, Cookie Jar Entertainment and DHX Media.
His class will approach the animation industry from a business point of view, taking into account “the current period of disintermediation and disruption in the industry” according to a TEAM media release. He’ll also answer questions on what it takes to build a great animation business.
Hirsh’s topics are timely — as he says, “The speed of change is capturing the animation industry with new models, causing more disruption and buoyancy in business development. I look forward to sharing my business models and many years of practical experiences with you.”
Animation Magazine’s World Animation and VFX Summit will be held this year from November 2nd through 4th. More information is available here.
