TVPaint is 25 years old

25 years of TVPaint

It's party time ! This year we are celebrating 25 years of TVPaint technology ! A quarter of a century, that's an event to record !

To mark the occasion, we wanted to make something new. For a compagny developing an animation software, what could be better than to make a short film ?

Yes ! You read properly : we went into the adventure of production by funding a short film, directed by Tévy Dubray.

You want to know more about ? How perfect : an article is available on Cartoon Brew, THE reference site for animation market.

Journey Through Creativity

MIFA in Annecy

As every year, TVPaint Développement will attend the MIFA, from June 15th to 17th June 2016. At booth 2.014, you will be warmly welcome by Tiphaine, Lise, Elodie, Jérémy, Eric and Patrick.

Moreover, deux guests will be present : Don Perro (teacher at Capilano University and animator at Bardel Entertainement, in Canada) and Tévy Dubray, the young artist who directed the short film to celebrate our software's 25th anniversary.

Annecy 2016

Besides this wonderful short film (that you could also watch at our booth), we have also planed a bunch of different goodies to celebrate TVPaint's 25th anniversary ! Gloves for screen tablets, necklaces (they will be green, this time) to put your keys or your dongle on (and avoid any loss...), badges, posters, candies...

If you are interested, the conference will take place on Tuesday, June 14th from 9:30am to 12:30pm at the Chambre des Métiers.

We hope you will prefer the darkness of theaters rather than pedal boat trips on the Lake.

Enjoy your screenings and the festival !
