Yup. I did CG animation on Shrek 4, Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss in Boots, and Rise of the Guardians. CG is a pretty different animal vs 2D but at the end of the day it’s about getting the right idea across.
I also learned a bit of how the inside of that beast works. It’s definitely a producer driven studio and most of the time I think their films speak for themselves in that regard. “CARS MADE TONS OF MONEY W/ MERCH! NOW US MAKE RACE MOVIE VROOM VROOM SNAILS 10 YEAR OLD MALE DEMOGRAPHICABLAJAGJBLBPGHQYH!”
Either way, I met a lot of talented cats and enjoyed the free food, but I knew this wasn’t the right place for me. I actually chatted with Dean DeBlois about a week ago about “How to Train Your Dragon 2” and I’m now incredibly optimistic about how great that might turn out. He’s got some idealistic goals for it, and hopefully they make it through.
