I work in animation. I've been doing this for over 25 years, and have met a lot of really cool people. I've been really lucky in my career (so far, knock on wood) and have been taught by some incredibly talented artists. I try to keep a positive outlook, even though I can be a jaded old fart.
I've been a supervisor in both traditional and computer animation and I've also done a lot of visual development, story development and design. I've directed T.V. shows, commercials, and supervised entire productions (2D and 3D) from boarding through Layout and animation (and clean-up in 2D animation). I've also worked in live action, as well as consulting on intellectual properties.
Animating is in my genes I think. I do it whether I'm paid to or not. Everyone is a little nutty in some way, I guess this is mine.
I'm not in it for the money, I'm in it for love, man.
