Moon over The Animation Academy Burbank - Jan 2013

Postby Charles » Sun Feb 03, 2013 2:55 am

Though I'd share something different. This is the conference room at my school The Animation Academy in Burbank California. Yes it is nice. It's even nicer than it appears in these photos. Chance Raspberry of The Simpsons was over the other night and we had a meeting at the conference room. It's the highest point in the Magnolia Park area in central Burbank. Kind of looks like an ancient temple. He took these shots during our meeting with his iPhone.


Here's another view of the January night sky with a full moon as our lamp. You can see the lights of downtown Burbank way off to the left along the horizon. The conference room is on the fourth floor of a three story building above the tree line.


Chance is a former student of the Academy and is one of many who've gone on to become stars in the biz. He frequently posts on AN. He's also recently succeeded with a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of his Little Billy project. We were having a strategy pow wow at the time. The Academy is located at the geographical center of the international capital of the animation industry. A great place to be. Wanted to share this beautiful view.

Thanks for the photos Chance!
