“...That was the original idea from day one - the elimination of the tweening process. But it is certainly not the only feature of Synfig that makes it unique. In addition to eliminating the tweening process, I also wanted Synfig to be used for pretty much every part of production except story-boarding and editing.”

We have received the following letter through the synfig-devel mailing list:
I am a volunteer with the Connecticut Film Festival, Interactive and New Media component. Our festival, in its 6th year, this being the 2nd year of the Interactive and New Media component, is looking for presenters for workshops and panels. The festival is May 4-9, with the Interactive component on May 7, 8, 9, Friday to Sunday, in Danbury CT, located about 60 miles from New York City. Our theme this year is "Connections Multiplied". We have a strong focus on free and open source software for creative professionals. I think Synfig would be an excellent fit as an animation tool. We already have presenters lined up for Blender and Celtx, and representatives from the FSF and EFF. We will also have Bob Camp, co-creator of Ren and Stimpy, presenting. We want this festival to be a way for developers and users of these tools to connect with each other, as well as educate the larger public about their existence, usefulness, and importance.
If anyone with extensive user, development, and/or training/presentation experience with Synfig is interested in being a presenter please contact me via to discuss further. We can provide hotel accommodations, and have limited funds to reimburse travel, so we would prefer someone based in the north east USA if you need travel reimbursement.
I would also like to extend an invitation to our conference to all the members of this list. Please feel free to pass on this message to anyone whom might be interested.

It is a great opportunity to promote Synfig, so if you are nearby that location please contact with the author and offer your self to join to the festival.
