Ground Zero Animation EXPO is an annual event held in Orange County, CA. For our 2020 5th Annual GZAEXPO it will be held at The Boys and Girls Club of Stanton. The EXPO caters to those interested in breaking into the Animation industry or anyone who appreciates animated films, shows & shorts. The event also focuses on all parts of the industry from illustration, publishing, stop motion, fabricating and claymation/puppetry to character design, 3D modeling, prop/background design and much more.

Industry professionals are there to share all day at their tables, through panels, demos, lectures, workshop and during unique one on one interactions. Ground Zero is a grassroots show that has a big impact.

We have also started offering monthly Workshops & Classes in order to keep the education flowing year round!
