Victor Paredes, an award winning animator from Chile, will be demonstrating products and taking questions at the Smith Micro booth (4437) during San Diego Comic-Con. Having used Anime Studio for over 9 years now, we consider Victor an Anime Studio celebrity. I don't think we're the only ones, either. The News-Gazette featured Victor in their paper when he held a seminar on how animation works. The News-Gazette called Victor, "the premiere tutor for Anime Studio."
A lot of Victor's animations are featured in our Anime Studio Gallery. To view more of Victor's animations, check out his YouTube Channel. His animation, Regálense Unas Vacaciones was featured in our blog on how Anime Studio inspires international education. We also blogged about Victor when Smith Micro won a Telly Award for Happy Earth Day, an animation created by Victor and his team. After receiving the award, Victor stated, “Smith Micro’s Anime Studio software has been a great tool for cutting down production time, as well as adding precision and detail to animation projects. My team and I are delighted to share this Telly Award with Smith Micro.”

Rooster Teeth Productions
Stop by Rooster Teeth Productions at booth 1437! Monty Oum, director of animation at Rooster Teeth Productions and senior animator for Red vs. Blue said, “When I’m working on Red vs. Blue, Poser is like an extension of my body. I have no time for inefficiency or unnecessary steps and I need a workflow that I can move around easily. Poser is user friendly enough that kids could use it to animate, but at the same time its powerful and flexible enough that nearly all of our rendering and character animation for the series happens using Poser.” Read Smith Micro's Press Release for more on Red vs. Blue. Be sure to watch RWBY's "Red" Trailer, featured below. RWBY was also created in Poser.
Marcus Rene Hill is a guest at the Man of Action Studios, booth 2007. Marc has used Manga Studio to create all of his artwork, including the graphics in The Machine Stop.
