East London’s artistic hub, Kachette, was the location of our London Gathering on May 11, 2017. We filled it up with illustrators, filmmakers, concept artists and all sorts of creatives for an experience that made all five senses tingle.
This Gathering was special for us because we introduced a new activity: Let’s Talk About This, a live TV show featuring a roundtable discussion joined by animation experts Jimmy Kiddell (The Mill), Jaime Maestro (Blue Dream Studios Spain), Simone Giampaolo (Blue Zoo Animation Studio), and Richard Scott (Axis Studios), who discussed whether it was a good or bad thing that the lines between live-action movies and animation were blurring.
Food is a very important part of the Gatherings for us and that’s why, on top of all this, we fueled our attendees’ creativity with amazing gourmet street food served by Chef Events LTD. They work with quality locally sourced ingredients and skilled chefs and produced a three-course meal with different options for vegetarians: appetizers, main course, and desserts accompanied by craft beer, sodas or water.
