Toon Boom announces LatAm educational expansion with ETC Brasil
Earlier this year, Brazil celebrated 100 years of animation. In the century since, artists in the Latin American nation have established themselves as growing power players. As the world’s leading animation software, Toon Boom aims to bridge the gap between the buzzing Brazilian market and the global industry — and have partnered with ETC Brasil to do just that.
ETC Brasil is a recognized leader in Brazil’s educational technology market. Located in Rio de Janeiro, it has connections to government, education institutions and associations, as well as leading studios. It is now Toon Boom’s official partner in Brazil, serving as an authorized reseller and Certiport certifier, and is committed to building an animation ecosystem there.
It will strengthen Brazil’s economic and educational animation ecosystem by connecting studios and schools to each other and our global network — a perfect reflection of Toon Boom’s own mission. To further those ambitions and celebrate our partnership, we will be co-hosting a reception in Rio de Janeiro with ETC Brasil to bring together industry influencers from public and private spheres.
What: Toon Boom x ETC Brasil partnership reception
Where: Av. Cidade de Lima, 86 - Santo Cristo, Rio de Janeiro (parking available)
When: Tuesday, December 05, from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m
Professionals from Toon Boom, studios and educational institutes in Rio de Janeiro, as well as government officials will be present. The evening will be filled with discussions on the global animation market as well as the growing impact of the local industry. There will also be a demo of our studio and pipeline management software, Toon Boom Producer, as well as food and swag.
