Top Peg Animation & Creative Studio Inc is organizing ‘The Production Management Workshop for Graphic Art & Animation’ on 27th, 28th, Feb and 6th March, 2011 at Top Peg Studio. 

Grace Dimaranan, Managing Director, Top Peg Animation will conduct the workshop. The holding capacity of the workshop is 15-20 participants per workshop. The workshop is from 1pm – 5pm and refreshments will be provided during this 4 hour workshop.

Talking to AnimationXpress Asia Pacific, Grace Dimaranan, Managing Director, Top Peg Animation shared, “The Production Management Workshop for Graphic Art & Animation is a continuity of what was presented at the Animahenasyon Festival in November 2010, held at Ateneo de Naga University in Bicol (1 hr plane ride from Manila). I was the speaker for this Topic and when we got back to Manila, there were requests to conduct the same topic for those who didn't have the chance to attend Animahenayon in November.

She further adds, “It is an advocacy for us to educate the people in the art & animation sector about the real meaning of production management and how to keep a studio abreast with the new trends. We would like to share our success stories and knowledge so that more investors, business people and creative people who would like to be entrepreneurs  will be encouraged  to start up a studio the  right way,  manage both the company & people well,  promote it and survive in the global art & animation industry.  We are hoping that through this workshop, new studios & company set ups will arise thus bringing in more job opportunities in the Philippines”.
