AEPDX is group of creatives who focus on storytelling through design and animation. We get together to explore, educate, share, and network. Whether you're a concept artist, illustrator, animator, film maker or visual effects artist - bring your interests, expertise, and hang out. We share animation techniques and software ranging from After Effects, Animate, Maya, Max, Cinema 4D, Blender, Marvelous, Houdini, and more. Our in-person quarterly events include presentations, panels, guest speakers, artists & studios sharing project breakdowns, animation competitions, sharing local work, and covering new software releases.
AEPDX was established in 2009 by Chris Tegethoff
and managed by Jamal Qutub
from 2013-2019. In 2019 Toolfarm
took the reigns and continued monthly events virtually on Discord. Since December 2022 Deep Sky
is now actively planning in-person quarterly events, launching AEPDX's new website, social media, and selecting group moderators.
