Welcome to my first post. I am an Animator at DisneyToon Studios in Sydney, currently working on "Cinderella 3". I'm one of many about to lose our jobs as part of Disney's closedown of 2D animation. Animation as we know it has seven weeks of production to go before we join the unemployment lines and become known as "ex-Disney Animators". In spite of the shock of losing a regular pay cheque, it'll be very interesting to see what pops up on the Australian animation scene over the next couple of years.
