These are some of the pages at my comic travel journal about the keynote session in Siggraph. There were awesome directors like Pete Docter, Henry Selick, Chris Sanders, Kevin Lima, Kirk Wise, Ron Clemens, Eric Golberg, Mike Mitchell and David Silverman!

One of the problems, was that it was a big ammount of directors and no women, but the presenter apologized saying that they tried but they were all busy. And that’s ok, but still, the ratio is so low, I mean, the only women directors I know in BIG studios are Brenda Chapman and Yennifer Yuh Nelson and Jennifer Lee who is co-directing Frozen. I am missing someone? Would someone tell me why is this? Because it’s weird that with so many talented women in animation, so few rise up to be directors.I hope it’s a problem that changes with time.
