INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2022
To commemorate International Women’s Day 2022, Basement Animation hosted her annual International Women’s Day panel discussion. The panelists were Esther Kemi Gbadamosi (Founder/Media Consultant, Radioxity Media), Omoyefe Majoroh (3D Generalist/Filmmaker), and Ukpeme Uwakwe (Partner/Head of Development, Basement Animation). They discussed ‘Advancing Women Creatives In Animation’.
They had some really thought provoking conversations that revolved around uplifting and inspiring women to pursue their goals without bias or barrier, forging equal participation and leadership, gender equality, forging an industry where the creation, production, and rewards of animation are shared equally and also making more women aware that they can take the lead to make an impact.
Beyond this event, Basement Animation Studio will be organizing a Scholarship Program for women that want to pursue careers as Script Writers, Voice Over Artists, Character Designers, Storyboard Artists, or Animators. More details on this will be coming soon.
