Imagine a digital doorway that opens a new perspective into the technical world, giving attendees the opportunity to experience digital art in its many forms. Although from a virtual setting, the event will include networking with industry professionals, featuring galleries, exhibits, local music and talent. You can expect raffles with exciting high-end prizes, a silent auction, screenings, presentations, entertainment, workshops, an awards ceremony and some fun additional surprises in between.
DigiDay 2020 is designed for not only content creators but those who simply wish to enjoy great visual digital art, animation, video and film, learn industry advancements, new techniques in the entertainment industry and gain insight on how digital arts are being incorporated into the economic culture. In order to make sense of this event, one must picture the elements of a film festival, education and networking from a conference, that includes entertainment and excitement, all jam packed into a virtual experience; that’s DigiDay 2020, taking place on Aug 22, 2020 from 1-7pm.
The popularity of the event has attracted well-known names throughout the years such as Emmy winner Cady McClain, Universal Studios Executive Vice President John Corser, a panel of Disney animators and graphic designers, “A list” scriptwriters, competition gamers and YouTube influencers to name a few. This year’s DigiDay is stacking up the virtual red carpet with names like Teddy Lane Jr. and Jess Paul, Actor and Filmmaker.
“If you create content, manage content, or participate in digital content, this event is for you. Students will learn, emerging & experienced creators will be engaged and the community will be entertained,” said Diane Strand, event founder and producer.
