Hot damn! Looks like we might be in for the keynote equivalent of a stop-motion pie in the face at this year's beloved Ottawa International Animation Festival. Seth Green and Matt Senreich, co-executive producers, writers, and directors of Cartoon Network’s Emmy award-winning Robot Chicken will be taking the stage to show us how to have a good time while delivering a speech. Hilarity will no doubt ensue.

On the corporate-but-cool side of things and providing this year's opening keynote speech is the President of Animation for Nickelodeon, MTVN Kids and Family Group, Brown Johnson. Ms. Johnson is responsible for some of my niece's favourite programs, from the Dora and Diego series all the way to the mighty Squarepanted one himself!

From the press release,

“Johnson, Green and Senreich are leaders in the industry,” says TAC Director Azarin Sohrabkhani, “We are excited and honoured to have them offering the keynote speeches this year, which will set the tone of the conference, giving insight and inspiration on how to create a quality product and achieve great commercial success.”

All three guest speakers will give their keynote speeches at the Television Animation Conference, complement to the OIAF on September 17th & 18th, 2008 in Ottawa, Ontario.
