                    Raising the Bar Recruiting has been the launching pad for some of the best talent in the animation industry. Talent is prescreened by top industry recruiters and employers and those who pass the prescreening are afforded an opportunity to be interviewed on site at the event. Quote: "CTN Expo is very special to me because it was the turning point for me. I applied for my very first 'new talent portfolio review' and had one review with a visual development artist from Disney. His review was actually very honest and little harsh to take. But I tried my best to address his notes because he was totally right. So I restarted my portfolio and I am now working at Dreamworks Animation."
