This Spring Chicago will be one of the new locations for one of the largest 3D/2D animatics companies out there. The move of Animated Storyboards LTD to Chicago signifies just one more notch in the effort to advance Chicago's tech community. This will be an opportunity for directors, designers, illustrators and others in this industry to have an avenue to display their work among the top innovators and game changers in animatics.
They have locations in New York, London, Bangkok, Tel Aviv and Sao Paolo, so Chicago would be a perfect addition to their team. The office will be in the loop area which will place them next to clients they've worked with over the years such as Ogilvy and Mather and Leo Burnett.
I think it's worth keeping an eye out on our new future transplants to see what opportunities that it will bring to the city as well as those in the tech and animatic community.
