Animatic Con

A newer convention taking place in Cincinnati, Ohio on weekend of March 24th – March 26th  in 2017, for our second year.

Our Mission

To create a convention that not only welcomes those with disabilities but also does our part to help in removing any limitations one would face due to disabilities, while attending an animation and cosplay convention such as ours.


AnimaticConMascotThe term Animatic refers to a version of a concept that is produced by shooting successive sections of a storyboard together and adding a soundtrack to use as a presentation; This happens often in the movie and voice over industry. Much like the television shows we see on television, each one started with a concept. This is our concept.

Animatic Con started in March of 2015 with the idea of delivering to the fandom’s across the states a convention that was not only fun, but would have a higher purpose. After much consideration and discussions we decided that we wanted to help raise funds for children with Autism and we wanted to create a convention that not only welcomed people with limitations but also did what we could to accommodate their needs. We contacted The Make-It-Fit Foundation (Columbus, Ohio) and explained how we wanted to help. They put us in contact with Autism Rocks (Cincinnati, Ohio)and it was agreed that a percentage of profits raised will be split between the two organizations.


Our theme for the 2017 convention has not yet been announced!


We’ll be posting news here on the site but you can also follow us online at: Facebook Facebook and Twitter Twitter.
