The Evolution of BAN

BAN Why?

Here's Why: At the time that I first launched BAN in 2008 there were very few options in a 'Google Search' for the study of black animation. I was informed of this by a 9th grade student that was in a nonprofit community multimedia after-school program that I help founded. That kid was hungry to master animation and just looking for more knowledge and inspiration. He asked, "Do you know any black animators? Can you name any movies that they made?" and on and on. With great humility I humbly, admitted "I had no idea..." on any of his questions, but (eureka!!!) I came-up with a solution - "Let's just create it!". That day we began collecting every bit of available data on the subject, built websites to place it on and we started our 1st animation projects. I've continue to network information and have simultaneously created over 100 animated projects. I seem to have caught whatever that kid had.
