As part of a Federal, Ontario and Brazilian Government to increase trade and Co-Production between Brazilian and Canadian Animation producers, a Trade Mission to the Ottawa Animation Festival for 20 Brazilian companies has been arranged for Tuesday October 13, 2009.
CASO has agreed to sponsor an animation studio tours in the morning with a Panel and Breakout session in the afternoon at the Chateau Laurier. The theme of our one day event is "The Nuts and Bolts of Animation Production in Canada". The goal is to educate our Brazilian counterparts on our successful and world renowned animation business practises, with an eye to providing service and co-production opportunities to them and their ever growing Canadian Co-Production Producers. This panel however is not and will not promote the concept of outsourcing, only true Co-Production and Consulting approaches in a B2B working environment.
CASO is looking for companies to participate on the Panel and Breakout session. This is a great opportunity to meet with our Brazilian counterparts and to understand the business opportunity.
Although this program is being sponsored and organized by CASO, all animation and visual effects companies in Ontario are welcome to participate. Those who do, will be given preference when a Canadian Animation Trade Mission to Brazil happens in early 2010.
Please let Christa Tazzeo (Christa@casont.ca) or Micheal Carter (firstname.lastname@example.org) know early if you would like to participate in the program.
