Oho, so you MIGHT be coming to the US of A after all!

I promise nothing. I had the crap kicked out of me by Diznay, and as much as I adore Damien's drive and passion, I'm not sure I have it in me to put myself through all that again. Generally people can find passion OR contentment, but the two are mutually exclusive, and right now I'm contented...

I do get bored easily though. *grin*

What, the conciliatory mouse ears with your name on them weren't apology enough? ;D

Pfft, I received no mouse ears! So on my way through the studio for the last time, as it was shutting down for good, I did what a dozen or so others had clearly done before me and yanked one of the tiny Mickeys off the wall mural that was formed of hundreds of identical Mickey figurings all nailed up in rows. (It sounds horrific, it was actually sort of cute. And yes, half a row was missing from other souveneir-hunting animators by that stage.)

I believe that. You worked for the Florida facility, right? The one inside the Disney-MGM Studios? I remember taking tours through there back when it was a working studio. It was incredibly sad, when I came back on the College Program, to walk by that empty building...and even sadder to take the "Magic of Disney Animation" tour and see all the windows blocked off with those darn Tinkerbell "Pardon our Fairy Dust" things. XP Sure made the tour a heck of a lot more boring...

Gosh no, I worked for the Aussie studio! I've not yet been to America. :)

Ohhh. Wonder where I'd gotten that notion? Hum.

Love the icon. :D Dunno, it could've been because the Florida studio was similar to the Sydney studio in a number of ways - the kind of productions done there, etc. We actually got their desks when they shut down. :\ Then we shut down a year later and... I've no idea where those desks wound up, which is a shame because they were awesome, and whatever short-sighted management who made the decision to axe both studios failed to anticipate that Lasseter would charge in only a couple of years later and go, "2D is NOT dead! Let's go again!"

Yeah, I'm glad he showed up to save 2D.
