Animation test for Popeye from Sony - with a foreword from Genndy Tartakovsky !
I love how physical humor is making its way back into animation. Cg animation doesnt HAVE to be perfectly realistic and sony flims are really upping that snappy,wacky style. I freaking love it.

Hi! I've been looking at your blog for a while and I was wondering what you would recommend for those aspiring to work for Pixar?
Asketh - sorasubject01
first is to read read Tom Bancrofts answer to this which is really good.
Second is to really learn about the animation industry and dive into animation - NOW- because really the people who get into these jobs are in these jobs BECAUSE they love animation and their work..they are dedicated to it , its not about the job its about the process. Really the question of ’ how do i aspire to be an amazing animator ’ is a much better way to think. Its COMPETITIVE and extremely hard work….people say ’ oh ill work hard ‘but cant even imagine how much it takes until they actually get started in the industry.
In the end these jobs do not make up the majority of the industry..the industry is big , and vast. when people first get stated in animation all they can think of those feature studios…which im sure are great jobs and you learn a lot from , but they are not the epitome of happiness in this industry. Even if you do get into those jobs , you are not working on pixar and disney fims for the rest of your life - contracts are contracts and layoffs happen often.
learn about animation , learn about the joys of movement , of acting , and dive into the industry head first …ALL ASPECTS OF IT good and bad. after you do that you will have a better idea of what it really takes to get into that studio.
