What do we do?

JANN is a member organization for animators
Its aim is to

  1.  make connections in the animation industry
    beneficial to animators
    (Studios, Networks, Agencies, Training Institutions, festivals, markets)
  2. Make animators aware of opportunities that can provide them
    with jobs and access to well needed resources and exposure
  3. Encourage and foster the creation of animated content for
    various mediums”

So in a nut shell we find opportunities for talent, enable talent and expose talent

The JANN Structure

The current organizational structure of the initiative reflects the duality of its nature, that is: the company is headed by its Board of Directors; whereas the association is lead by its elected Executive. Currently the men and women who lead the company as its Board of Directors, are also completing their initial five (5) year tenure as the association’s Executive.
