Huge Crowds at TAAFI Job Fair

When I arrived at the TAAFI Job Fair Saturday afternoon I was told that over 1000 people had registered for the event.  The place was packed, with long lines of people waiting to talk to representatives from studios.  I was working the Seneca College booth, and beside me was Guru Studio.  Their line went down the hall and stayed like that until I left at 4:30.

I was a bit disappointed that there weren't more FX companies there.  I was surprised to see Cinesite who made the trip from Montreal.  While I'm sure most of the FX companies in the city will turn out to the CASO job fair on May 15th, it does strike me as a possible missed opportunity, especially since most studios are short on people these days.

My view on Saturday afternoon.
