: Tell me where to call. Give me a call, I'm in the local phone book. I could hack the mountains and clean air. I've moved before for work. The change of scenery does a lot of good. Not to mention making more contacts and meeting a lot of good people from all over the world.
: I went to Ireland because there was no work in Chicago. This business isn't really is big as one thinks. Twelve years later I meet people at a studio I worked with back then.
: I do think we still have to work on the problem at hand here and get people more united so everybody is not just looking out for themselves but looking out for the future of the animation workers. But hey, I'm always up for a new city.
Iím not sure of the work that Matt is talking about so I am guessing here. Bardells is doing some short term work to help DW finish off Eldorado so I think that isnít what he is talking about. Overflow work is very sparatic and not worth chasing I think. I think he might be talking about the Disney studioís in Toronto or Vancouver. You know, I think the best idea would be to contact Disney TV and see if you could get the number of one of those studioís. Remember that they are probably going to pay a bit less but I really think for younger animators it would be great just to do work on a feature. Like you the majority of my work came from places outside the US. rFance ,Germany, England. I did most of the work from my apartment though (the advantage of rep) so my traveling is not always important. If animators are strong and willing I see no reason that they should not be worth sending. Let us know how it goes.
