    Bring Spike Home article and Week4!

    Posted by chad3d on October 21, 2008

    Wow,  it’s week 4 at animation mentor already. What a great ride this has been so far and it just zooms by! The October newsletter is finally out and it has my short story and drawing in it from the bring spike home contest and I won!  So far we have learned a lot about the foundations of character animation and it keeps on going. I have met some great people that are in my class and others that are upper class men.

    Animation mentor has come out with a study report on character animators and statistics on the job and the industry. Very interesting stuff. One thing they mention in there that hurts American jobs as animators is outsourcing. It’s hard for companies to compete with places like India or China who are willing to do the work for a fraction of the price. Guess we will just have to show them how much better quality American animators can be! On the political side of things, Senator Obama plans to set up a bill that raises taxes on companies that outsource  and give tax breaks to companies that keep there work in the states. Sounds good to me! So if Obama does become president that might affect some of the studies outcomes in the booklet.

    Well I am off to animate some more, I think this image says it best!
