“The article by reporter Deborah Vankin notes that women make up the majority of students at acclaimed schools like…

  • CalArts: 71%
  • USC’s John C. Hench Division: 65%
  • UCLA’s master’s in animation: 68%
  • Ringling College’s computer animation program: 70%

However, women make up just 21% of artists, writers and technicians employed under an Animation Guild contract this year.

‘They come out of art school and aren’t hired for the creative jobs,’ Marge Dean, co-president of the nonprofit advocacy group Women in Animation, told the paper. ‘They end up being PAs [production assistants] or on the production management track, the housekeepers and the organizers as opposed to the creators.’”

This is my student film “Forest Lights” that I made at Cal State Fullerton!

It’s about half animated and half storyboarded but I’m still very happy with how it came out. Thank you so much to my friends and family for being so wonderful and to my professor Wendy for helping us all along the way!!

Here it is , the first teaser of The Tales of Smokey Town , a little project I’m cooking for months with the help of a bunch of talented friends.

Don’t forget that there’s also huge racial disparity that, unfortunately, ACLU and LA Times are not covering… Pixar’s first non-white director was on upcoming Good Dinosaur, and Disney still hasn’t had one since they started in the 1930s. (x)

However, you shouldn’t be discouraged by all of this. The point is to stick to your aspirations and fight to even out these numbers.
