Here it is folks, the first issue of the Animator’s Newsletter. Read and enjoy for it may be the last. Seriously though, keep those articles, letters and queries coming in and you are bound to persuade me to get out my typewriter and knock issue number two into shape.
I must say it has been great reading the experiences of the animators who have written to me so far. You will see the results between these pages. What’s that – you’ve seen them already – well what do you think? Us animators must be crazy spending months of our lives shut away making a film a few minutes long. Hell, who cares what others think, it’s fun to do and a great sense of achievement when a cartoon film is finished even if it does make you neglect the gardening, the decorating, the washing up or whatever other things that make up our daily routine.
