The Creative Talent Network®------ Putting the Talent Center Stage
About the Founder:
Tina Price began her career as a professional ballet dancer with the New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and Chicago Lyric Opera. She transitioned to an animation career by way of training with Don Bluth on his independent film “Banjo The Woodpile Cat”.  Following that Tina worked as a Key Clean Up Artist with Filmmation Studios and entered Walt Disney Feature Animation working with Legendary Animator Andreas Deja on “The Black Cauldron”. 
Her curiosity for technology led her with a small team to pioneer 3D computer animation in every Disney film from “Oliver and Company” to “Fantasia 2000”. Calling themselves the "Late Night Crew", this hot group of talent created the first processes and techniques that led to the development and implementation of 3D animation and Disney’s proprietary Ink and Paint Computer Animation Production System (CAPS). Working both traditionally and digitally, Tina spent most of her career contributing to every feature animated film at Disney including the award winning short film shown at SIGGRAPH “Oilspot and Lipstick” and became the first woman to be titled as “Head of Computer Animation” at Walt Disney.
She has filled both creative and technical roles in the animation television and film industry for over 25 years.  Her work is published in "The Art of Aladdin", "The Art of Dinosaur" and she has spoken about Computer Animation techniques on panels at SIGGRAPH, Annecy and Imagina as well has being interviewed in Computer Graphics World and The National Geographic on the subject of computer animation in 2D animated films.
Her versatile skill set, insatiable curiosity and philanthropic spirit led her to devote her life full-time in 2006 to working to find way of benefiting other artists. Since it's inception in CTN has become the international community standard for top talent artists in the animation industry and host to the award winning anual trade show event, The CTN animation eXpo. 
Tina Price is a Champion for Artists, a Creative Philanthropist and Leading Professional in her industry.
She is an invited voting member of the Motion Picture Academy Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).
Awards: Annie Award winner for Special Achievement in creating the CTN animation eXpo.
Honored by the Assoc of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a "Pioneering Woman in Animation"
Ford Foundation Scholarship to School of American Ballet, New York City Ballet
