With a highly targeted audience, CTN is located in Burbank CA the only city on the planet with more animation studios per square mile bringing city wide involvement and media outlets from around the globe. In fact, over the course of 10 years, our event has seen 150,000+ future storytellers and media arts creators come through our doors who have gone on to create award winning new films, direct for major studios and develop one of a kind IP.

Sneak peeks of new and exciting content. Animator Career Camps and Incubators. The most creative event on the planet for this group.

The Creative Talent Network®------ Putting the Talent Center Stage


Thirteen years ago, the majority of traditional and digital creators in the global animation industry were ‘in-house’ with long term contracts working collaboratively and together as a team for years but due to layoffs, social media, outsourcing and other business model changes the industry became less ‘in-house artists’ and more of a nomad lifestyle independently bouncing from job to job. People worked short term in-house or in complete isolation without a sense of community or purpose. CTN membership brings unity.

CTN founder Tina Price – is an award winning animation professional with an entrepreneurial streak. After 23 years at Disney and a victim to one of the largest layoffs in animation history she saw an opportunity to bring together this inspired breed of independent creators for a membership community driven annual creativity-infused event chock full of inspiration.

Tina wanted the world to know that these artists not only are brilliant and that they exist as a community but she had the goal to create a neutral home for collaboration, ideas, relationships and, most importantly opportunities for their future to take shape.

Today, CTNX draws the global animation talent community from 16 countries and is the leading conference and festival of its kind in the world.

"I can’t believe this all started with a book expo in a hot tent outside of Van Eaton gallery. Actually the first one was inside with about 10 artists and I was lucky to be one of those!! " ~David Colman

"It’s truly a pleasure to collaborate with you Tina through the years and an honor to have been part of CTN since day 1. But most of all, Bing and I are so blessed by your friendship. Looking forward to CTNX10 as we celebrate Mulan20!" ~Armand Serrano
