Following the successful participation in the MIT Enterprise Forum at Tel Aviv University, Toon Boom was invited to view the animation teaching facilities at the department of animation at Sapir College in the northwestern Negev region on Israel.
The College is situated in the town of Sderot one hour's drive south of Tel Aviv, close to Gaza and as such deals with its own safety and security issues. The head of the animation dept is Ricardo Werdesheim, who was delighted to show Toon Boom’s President and CEO, Joan Vogelesang and VP of Marketing and Communications, Karina Bessoudo around the facilities. The 500 animation students at the college use Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and Harmony in their work. Read the whole story of Toon Boom's visit in the Toon Boom Blog.
