DaniMation Entertainment produces original and contract Animation, Illustration, and Graphic Arts work. Founded by Dani Bowman at age 11, the fledgling company has produced eight animated shorts premiering at San Diego Comic-Con and teaches animation to teens and young adults with autism at summer camps around the country. DaniMation’s mission is to hire and train individuals with special needs animation and entertainment production to help them achieve an independent and fulfilling life. The company mission mirrors Dani’s social beliefs in renewable energy, equal opportunity for all regardless of race, disability, gender, orientation and religion.
The Company's Mission
One of DaniMation’s missions is to address employee issues for people with autism, a disorder than impacts 1 in 50 individuals. According to the common statistics, more than 89% of individuals with autism and other related disabilities are unemployed or underemployed, regardless of their education level or skills. The unfortunate truth is that these individuals who love animation and the arts are completely overlooked in the workforce despite unique and amazing creative skills as artists, musicians and storytellers.
Dani’s summer camps and national speaking schedule deliver a message of hope and encouragement to others like her that are impacted by autism and also serve to market DaniMation’s services as well as develop a network of like-minded organizations and a recruiting platform for future employees with DaniMation.
