Lots of videos from the last CTN eXpo and perhaps the one before.

http://www.vimeo.com/channels/ctnanimationexpo

CTN X is an emerging annual convention that happens in Burbank, California each November. It's dedicated to animation and to animation artists in particular, which is why it's a natural for AnimationNation to enthusiastically support this great event.

Next CTN X will be taking place November 18-20, 2011 at the Burbank Marriott on Hollywood Way across the street from the airport. Same location as the first two expos.
