Q: May I ask what happened? Like how’d you work from warner bros to Disney? Were you a free lancer and contract ended? Felt like it wasn’t a good environment? Sorry if I’m nosy once I get my BA in animation I kind of want to know the process of finding a job in a company or what artist go through. Btw CONGRATS! LIVING THR DREAM!!

+++++++

I already answered this on my post but I figure it would be good to post it separately for those who want job careers similar to mine.  

A: I was a full time employee at Warner Bros but Be Cool Scooby Doo ended productions arounndddd November? So I was looking for another job and got a recommendation from my art director to test for Ducktales at Disney. I took the art test and i just pretty much got the job but i’m at this 6 week trial thing where they want to see if i’m the kind of person they want to work with. 

The most important advice i can give you is NETWORKKKKK PEOPLE!!! Your friends will get you the jobs. People will want to work with people they already know —-> FRIENDS are usually the first to be recommended in anything. Don’t just sit there and dream that your art will be so dazzling that it’ll make recruiters hand you a job, you have to get out there and approach those people in the industry! That’s how I was even able to work for WB in the first place! 

(side story: I met my art director from WB when she was giving a presentation in my class, and then the teacher in that class gave me her email and i talked to her how i was interested in working in the BCSD team. At that time they didn’t have jobs but at least she knew who i was at that point and was interested! Then i met her again when i invited her to go to my Grad show and we finally got to talk one on one. After that my boyfriend’s friend was a BG painter at BCSD at that time and gave us a tour at WB where i met the art director again!!!! and FINALLLY there was a position opened for a BG designer. So through all those meet-ups my art director at that point gotten familiar with me enough that she emailed me to give me a art test and i got the job!!! 

So talking to people is IMPORTANT! You don’t know where that person’s career is heading so just be nice to everyone and at least say hi! The worst thing that they can do is just ignore you. So don’t be scared to reach out to your peers, teachers, WHOEVER! 

And when you DO GET THE ART TEST: 

Make sure whatever you do is strictly what they ASKED for. I’ve seen so many tests where the artist tries to put themselves in the art tests or just do the things the job says NOT to do (read EVERYTHING in the style guild). Showing yourself off is the WORST thing you can do. The tests aren’t about YOU. It’s about if you can fit in THEIR show’s style, they need consistency! That’s what makes you the better option, that you know your place and you can do what’s asked from you.

Hope that helps!

Rowling deciding that Cursed Child is a play only is really upsetting. I get having Universal areas and the WB Tours, but a part of the story? It’s a canon part of the story. She and all of you go off about how it’s so much better and just made for the stage but how are a majority of fans going to see it? The least she could do was have it professionally filmed so that anyone can get a copy. I don’t have thousands of dollars just to view what’s canon, and it sucks.

Amy Poehler YouTube Masterlist

If anyone is ever feeling lonely and wants to spend some quality time with Amy Poehler, or if you’re just in the mood to have some sunshine in your life, here is a (hopefully) helpful list of clips, interviews, and bits and bobs from YouTube.

The date beside each video is when it was published onto YouTube, not necessarily when it took place. There’s no way this list can include every video clip of Amy ever, but hopefully it is an awesome collection (e.g. I didn’t include all of her SNL skits because the list would go on forever). Feel free to let know if any of the links aren’t working/don’t match up and I will fix it. Enjoy ~

you know, i’d be okay if betty and jughead didn’t end on great terms in ep 11 and instead made up in ep 12, if it weren’t for the fact episode 11 is airing on my got dang birthday 

it’s like the time i toured WB on my birthday and then later found out that was the day they’d filmed the haleb break up. wtf man??? 

anonymous asked:

I remember you went to the WB tour a few years ago. Did you see the new PLL stuff they just added? I really want to go there now!

Nope! Most of what I saw on the tour were costumes, like they had Lucas’ creepy baby doll zombie outfit and some of the Halloween costumes and stuff! And there were a few props I saw, I think it was after 4b because the props were for NYC sets when they were hiding out in that theatre! I was lucky to see Toby’s house because they blew it up just a little while after (which we saw in 5x05)! Although I think Ian said it got blown up/demolished because it had termites lmao so maybe I was unlucky ;P

I wish the PLL museum was open longer than a month because it’d be neat to see but I def. can’t book a trip this summer haha 

my old wb tour photos

10

Sooooo in case you didn’t know I actually visited the PLL set today!

Story time!

It seriously was such an incredible day. I honestly did not plan this: yesterday I was just sitting in my bedroom back in Australia and here I am on the other side of the world having seen the PLL set (and Marlene)! My taxi driver from the airport to the hotel actually recommended the WB tour on a Friday as it’s quiet so we may see more stars (which I did!!!!!! But no pics!!!!!) So it all happened very fast, I didn’t really plan on doing this.

Side note: people may think I’m crazy if that’s ALL the pics I took! Hell no, I’ve got like a hundred! Hahaha
There’s a limit of 10 on Tumblr so I just chose the most distinct ones showing off various sets. (I may post the ones with myself in it after when the show ends, when I’m thinking about revealing who I am)
Most of you probably/definitely know this already, but from left to right, the pics are the Rosewood Town (IT’S TINY, 100 metres MAX from one side to the other), Rosewood City Hall (fun fact: on the other side of this exact building is Rosewood High! other side as in it’s a two in one building), The infamous church (which had nothing in it, damn!), the Rear Window Brew (and also where Spoby kissed in 312), Rosewood High School (TINY TINY TINY - it seemed so much bigger when it’s filled with heaps of extras), Alison’s house (which was empty), the new Radley which turned into a fancy hotel (the scene between Ashley and Hanna in the 5 years forward 611 premiere was taken in the space of that pic), the Lost Woods Resort (and actually, to the left of where I took the picture is Noel’s cabin too, which was also Ezra and Nate’s cabin), Spencer’s backyard where the fireworks lit off in 514 and the snow in 513, and then of course the barn which is directly opposite Spencer’s backyard. (That smaller house behind the tree that you see in Spencer’s backyard…. yeah that’s Emily’s house! They don’t show that in the show however)

Aside from these pics I of course saw heaps more, such as the Pennsylvania airport where Ezria kissed in 6B (which is actually a cafeteria for all Warner Bros staff!), the movie theatre from season 1, Hanna’s house, Emily’s house, the woods, the lake where Jenna drowned, Mona’s house, Aria’s house, the New York from 501, the park bench where the girls tried blocking A’s number in early season 1A, the train station where Haleb hooked up, etc. HEAPS! We were going through all these areas and I could instantly recall heaps of scenes that were shot right in front of me… my tour guide was impressed! Hahaha

It’s SO much smaller in real life. They make Rosewood seem like a huge town in the show but in reality it’s just this tiny block and another strip of houses, and The Radley, located elsewhere.

I did get to go through the actual stage of PLL, where the girls’ makeup rooms were (we practically lived there too, thanks to Ash and Shay’s Snapchats!) however there was nothing there. I got pics but it’s boring. Just wooden stages coming down, but most was gone. This is where the insides to all the houses were, so they’re gone now. Tours no longer go inside Spencer’s kitchen for example. But oh well, I was still SOOOO happy I got to walk through Rosewood, with the signs still saying Rosewood, before it’s totally totally gone as they’re finished filming obviously!

Tour guide: “so lots of different movies and TV shows have been filmed right here on the Warner Brothers lot, are there any movies or shows in particular you would like me to focus on a bit more throughout the tour?”

Me: “I came here for Pretty Little Liars. We can look at all the other movies and shows later.”

The other 7 people in my tour group were too shy to speak up so he literally followed my demands. It was practically a PLL tour despite being marketed as a “Warner Brothers Tour”! So cool. He was an awesome tour guide in that regard but also extremely shitty because as you all know I’ve been ranting at the fact that I saw Marlene walking ten metres from me (pic on my blog too) and he didn’t let me leave the tour group to go say hi, despite knowing my strong passion for the show. “I can loose my job if I let my group members start wandering off”. Pfffft I was only wanting to go ten metres and say hi to the woman who created this wonderful world!

Fun fact he told me - they had a tour group pass through Rosewood whilst they were filming 514… aka, the episode of Mona’s funeral. Normally visitors don’t watch them film episodes so the visitors generally never see spoilers, however, a massive picture of Mona was situated right outside the church and all the cast was wearing black - so the visitors put two and two together: Mona dies in an upcoming episode! Ever since then they’ve been really strict about letting people onto the set whilst the sets are decorated ready for filming. Mona “dying” was actually public knowledge WAAAAYYYY before 512 had even aired!

Hope you enjoyed mini story time with me ;) I highly recommend this tour if you are in LA. I of course LOVED seeing other stuff like the Friends set and the costumes used in the ACTUAL DC movies (they said don’t touch Superman’s suit, but I’ve always wondered what it felt like so I had to touch it! It’s rubber…) As this is a PLL blog I’ll keep it exactly that; PLL, but still, I recommend this for all shows that you know of that are filmed in the Warner Bros lot! The part of the tour where you walk through the props was sensational. So many “A"s in there and also Supergirl props too which was cool!

I could write a thesis but I’ll end it here. What a day!
