I have a few "whys" which maybe somebody in this forum can answer me.
But first let me say this.
Please dont flame me for my english and second for being an Computeranimator.

Why is it that traditionally trained animators are almost angry when I ask them to switch to an computer.
I am traditionally trained and see a computer as an other tool to comunicate feelings emotions, stories and characters.
Am I wrong? I need feeling and talent for form and timing here and there.
So why can it be that I have on the one hand animators worried about the future of the feature animation business when an whole new industrie
is evolving desperatly needing theire talents doing feature animation?
I and my company need this talents and I really didnīt care if they have a traditional background at the beginnig, but found out that
these animators have by far the best feeling. There movements have a beauty I wont to see on the screen.
And then has anybody considered ever comming to europe. I am only seated in Berlin and around us are all in all 6 Companys doing computer characteranimation with well
over 400 Animators, and the need for animators with animation experience is growing steep. Are there animators in europe? no. We have almost no schools do train them
but an exploding entertainment industry covering us with work.

May be somebody can answer these Questions and sorry again for my english.
