Women at FITC 2011

I'm so exited and can't wait for FITC this year!  I have volunteered with the Seneca display booth at FITC while I was a student as you can see from some of my earlier posts.  I have thoroughly enjoyed it and don't want to fall out of touch if I'm not able to attend this year. As a Freelance Illustrator with passion for animation and Flash games it is very relevant to my interests!

Important reasons why I MUST attend FITC 2011 are:

Networking!  This is the most important one because the industry wouldn't survive without any and it's very important especially for women in the industry to be able to network with each other. 

Inspiration!  Every year there's something exciting and new because technology is always evolving.  It's a great thing to keep seeing what is coming out next.

Sharing of ideas!  Ideas are what fuels the industry.  We should take advantage to share ideas every chance we can get.

Being Creative!  There's often opportunities to stretch those creative muscles there too through things like crafting booths or photo stations.  As a creative I see every act of creating as a good way to keep those brain waves sharp.

It's in Toronto!  I am close to the GTA at the moment and would be able to transport myself easily enough to FITC Toronto.

Memories!  Some of the best memories with my friends and making new ones have been made at FITC.  I hope to experience many more happy memories from it. 

Here's hoping I win a Women at FITC ticket and/or end up able to volunteer this year!
