Just for the sake of background, I've been in the animation industry
for four years....just a pup, I realize. I am also a Canadian.
I've been visiting this site every day for just over a week....I've
come back for comfort of knowing that there are other people who feel
terribly mistreated in this industry.
RE:The posting about the 'cheap labour'.....perhaps it would be helpful
to add that being the 'cheap labour' does not have a 'choice' unless the
choice is to not work at all. The artists aren't the ones who decide the
budget that seems to be taking the work out of LA....Please don't use our
nationalities as a barrier....It seems to me that in pursuit of a better
situation for 'our' industry, that we not exclude those countries outside
of the United States.....I mean no offence to any person, I'd just like
to think that perhaps a difference could be made beyond Los Angeles. All
of the people who have been contributing to this site have offered me a
great deal of insight that I was unaware of....It's very exciting that
the proverbial pot is being stirred....I'd just like to not feel like the
enemy when I come to this site to learn from those who are keeping it going.
