Animation Mentor Siggraph Events Calendar

Animation Mentor has a jam packed schedule for Siggraph. On top of the events Shawn, Carlos and myself will be doing a lot of interviews and articles with diffferent websites and publications. It should be a lot of fun. We have some cool announcements to unveil as well. We'll be announcing some of the details early to our current student, mentor and alumni base so that they have an early heads up.

On Monday we have our awesome Graduation planned for our third and fourth classes. After the graduation cermony we will be having a reception on the open rooftop of a really cool hotel in San Diego! It's going to be a SUPER fun event. We've invited dozens of recruiters from all the top studios so it should not only be fun, but a great networking event for our students and graduates. Here are more of the official details. Enjoy!

Also, we will be hosting Spike's Cafe at our booth. We've been working hard on it and we think everyone will have a lot of fun with it.
