I'm currently an animator at Disney Animation studios in Burbank CA. I grew up in Chicago Il, went to Calarts to study character animation and am certainly enjoying working in the industry and keeping in touch with artists I meet along the way. I created animatedbuzz.com in hopes that it will give artists in our industry a resource for getting inspired, growing artistically, and networking, as this is crucial to success in our business!

I have anti spam software installed but a few spammers still manage to get through before I can get to deleting them. They leave remnants in the forums of their spam that need to be deleted. I'm usually not aware of all of it.
Yea this is a huge problem that most people have going to that school unless they come from a wealthy family. If you're an American, you can take loans, which is what I did and am still paying. Since I started at Calarts in 03, tuition has increased more and more every year. I really don't know how anyone can afford it now. It's tough for you cuz you're an international student. This means you might just have to find another option. Fortunately there are several more affordable schools like Animation Mentor, etc that turn out good professionals. If you can't go to Calarts it's not the end of the world. Good luck.
