Disney hiring
So there's a crapload of people on my friends list who're going to get excited about this, so guys, this is for you!

http://corporate.disney.go.com/careers/walt_disney_animation_studios_career_info.html

I predicted this a couple of years back now. I know, I know, shut up Tania, everyone hates a gloater. But I don't care because I has a case of the happehs! 2D animation is back on the upswing! Walt Disney Animation is hiring again!

I think they're doing a 2D animated version of The Frog prince.

That's already well on its way (and I think it's called The Frog Princess or The Princess and the Frog - they kept changing the title) due for release next year, I think, so I doubt they're hiring people for that production anymore. If they're hiring, it's most likely for upcoming projects nobody's even heard of yet which should be exciting.

It's a mix still, but they're definitely hiring both. Track down the internships page, it has a more complete list of what they're planning to teach the young'uns. :)

Yey! Yeah, I've heard about this. And wishing that I didn't have one year left of school... Though realistically I'm still not qualified for any of the jobs at the moment. But at least this restores my hope. My childhood dream doesn't seem quite as impossible anymore...

Apply for the internship. Think of it this way: if you don't get in, no worries, you've got a year of school left to do anyway. And if you DO get in, obviously it was meant to be! It's win-win. :) You are a better artist by far than I was when Disney took me, and though I'm sure the competition for the US slots is higher, girl, you've got real talent.

I am probably woefully inadequate to apply. (Do I even HAVE an area of expertise??)

But...nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I suppose they finally understood that exploiting pixar too much will lead them to get...tired :|

I wonder if this falls into that consiracy theory I heard a few years ago, where they suspended 2D for a few years to reduce the power of the unioin and bring wages down to an economical area. Yeah good to see it back. we'll see if it's good and if Disney has learned anything from Pixar's example fo stong story and though line, without the push button characters and formulas Disney was so dependant upon because of their financial timidity.

Ahh I've been telling my room mate this was going to happen forever. :| He was convinced he was doomed career-wise because 2D animation was gone for good.

I'm currently trying to figure out how to apply to their merchandising division. I want to draw coloring books and advertisements and package illustrations.

I wonder if this means we'll have Real Dailies back in the screening room again! 8>
