Hey I'm Canadian I live on Vancouver island I was wondering what's the best way to work for big name companies like the one you work at if the place you live in like myself has no animation jobs in person is it possible to work for these companies by computer?

Not sure I entirely understand… But you are in luck because there are many animation companies based in Vancouver which you can apply for. Some are DHX, Bardel Entertainment, Rainmaker, Atomic, Titmouse, and Sony Imageworks. There are also SFX studios around the city if that’s what peeks your interest! It’s a pretty hopping spot for our industry :)

If you mean is it possible to work for companies like CN that are based in Cali without having to move from your current location, then yes it is possible to do outsource freelance for such companies. If you do obtain such an opportunity, your employers will need to aquire a tax form called a W8-BEN (you’ll need it for your records, too). It’s a specific tax form the United States need for foreign outsourcing. No biggy.

Luna - A Short Film (by NeoMatrix225)

ICYMI: Ratchet and Clank’s star-studded cast and release date revealed.

If you didn’t hear the news this morning, here’s an update: the release date and the remaining cast members for Ratchet and Clank’s theatrical outing have been revealed!

Film studios Blockade and Rainmaker Entertainment announced that the upcoming CG-animated film starring PlayStation’s iconic duo will be making its way to theaters nationwide on April 29, 2016. Focus Features, the company responsible for such films like The Box Trolls, The Theory of Everything, and Coraline, was confirmed as the film’s distributor. 

The second announcement is in regards to the film’s Hollywood voice talent comprised of the following actors:

  • Paul Giamatti (Sideways, Win Win) as the villainous “Chairman Drek”, 
  • Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Sky Kids 3) as “Victor”, 
  • John Goodman (Monster’s Inc, The Big Lebowski) as “Grimroth”, 
  • Bella Throne (Blended) as “Cora”,
  • Rosario Dawson (Sin City) as “Elaris”.

They’ll be working alongside series regulars like James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Armin Shimerman and Jim Ward, who’re set to reprise their roles as Ratchet, Clank, Nefarious, and Qwark respectively.

If the names of characters in the list above don’t ring any bells, fret not! They’re the latest cast additions made exclusively for the film and possibly the upcoming game, the latter of which is being developed by the Insomniac team.

Ryan Schneider, Insomniac’s Chief Brand Officer, promised frequent updates about the film and the game throughout the year, so keep an eye out for further news about your favorite intergalactic travelling space rat and his toaster friend.

Why did the delay the R&C movie ?

The true reason is because Insomniac Games and Rainmaker Entertainment partnered up with Focus Features. Focus Features realized that there were too many movies in 2015, and Ratchet and Clank wouldn’t get a chance to shine as much.

Insomniac said this was meant to be a “huge blockbuster film with a worldwide release,” so Focus Features decided to release it on April 29th, 2015, to give it a huge window to shine in.

As for the Ps4 game, it will release shortly after the movie, as expected. The delay actually gives Insomniac games time to polish the gameplay. So in a way, this delay is a good thing. Hopefully we can expect more news this E3 :)
