AN Video - The Mathematics of Apathy in Animation

Postby Charles » Thu Feb 28, 2013 1:22 am

Here's my latest recorded yesterday Feb 27 2013.

Take a look and give a listen to my description of how the mathematics of apathy within the animation community in Los Angeles adds up...

Now that's all kinds of a GD shame!

All those guild members and only a pittance got off their asses to represent?

Let em' burn. Don't help people who don't want to help themselves they'll just drag you down with them. Now watch what happens when those unemployment checks from Dreamworks run out and you get this sudden surge of guild people asking for help.

Amazing isn't it? All the things people don't know about how chronic the lack of involvement is within the unionized animation community. The community that should be leading the way in pro-activity. Nurtured apathy, non-existent leadership, fear, blacklisting...

And to top it off the VFX community which is the only aspect of Hollywood talent labor that isn't unionized can't get their poopoo together to save their lives. Literally.

All the latent power and influence that's lying just beneath the surface like a huge vein of gold and artists can't tap into it. Very sad and troubling.

They'll go out of their way to do nothing.

Well not all of them.

Quite a few independents are doing pretty darn good thanks to crowdfunding and being acclimated to a rugged environment over the years.

Studio artists are at their pro-active best when the times are desperate. Maybe we'll see a few things change this year.
