Up here in the frosty northlands a lot of trouble has been brewing for Disney.
All of the BG painters and layout staff were laid off a couple weeks ago, and
apparently the rest of the artistic staff will be laid off as of September 1st.
The studio, it seems, is a sinking ship.
Now I know this doesn't necessarily trouble you folks down south, but I just
mention it in passing because it makes the recent cleanup of middle management
by Disney seem to be due, not so much to anything the animation community has
done, so much as a few Disney accountants looking to cut costs wherever they can.
