That depends. Are the studios hiring? Is your work good enough/do they like it? How does it compare to the other reels they've recieved? Etc. When I finished school, I applied to 20 studios and heard back from 2, lol.

Feature animation is something I've wanted to get into, and you are there, how is it?

Oh all right a lot. I just didn't want to say how much exactly in case I come off looking like one of those creepy internet stalker types O_o

@01:22I'm glad you got to work more on certain projects than others :)

Is that typically the amount of work an animator gets? (I know it's a lot, but I mean like... what you get to do.)
Thanks ^^

It varies from studio to studio. I touched more shots at Disney and Blue Sky than I did at R&H. My shots at R&H were always much longer than my Disney and Blue Sky shots though. They were all over 100 frames, whereas my longest shot (so far) at Blue Sky was about 60-70 frames. Shots are also moved along much faster at Disney and Blue Sky since the directors are in the studio and know how animation works. Whereas in vfx, you're working w/ live action directors who are more often than not off site and aren't familiar with the animation process. As the result, you end up going through a bunch of changes with your shots which causes them to take much longer to get approved.

So, the number of shots you get varies from studio to studio and even production to production. Your speed also plays a factor in this too. Obviously, you'll get more shots done if you're a fast animator. Lol, sadly I dont feel like I'm very fast so I don't have a ton of shots.

Ah, that makes sense. Do you get to choose what studio you go to? How does that work? (You don't have to answer any of my questions, ahah~)

Thanks for getting back to me! ^^

I imagine you can choose where you want to work if you're a super star, but for the most part no. You apply and hope to get a response back. Which ever studio calls you back with an offer is the one you go to. There are way too many of us now to be able to pick and chose between studios. It's the studios who pick and chose between us.

Thanks!

Could you give me a rough percentage of the amount you apply for and get, if you don't mind?

Sorry for all the questions XD

Do you mean payment? You dont apply for a job based on payment. You apply by sending in your reel and resume. If they like your work, they'll call you and schedule an interview. When they offer you a job then you can talk about money. Salaries vary from studio to studio and artist to artist. You can find a salary survey on The Animation Guild website.

Oh I meant like, if you apply at 5 studios, about what are the chances of getting in? (1 of them, 2, none, etc?)

Thanks :D

Thanks! No IA or Alvin work yet. I have my Alvin shots but I cant post them for the general public to see until the movie comes out on dvd. Ice Age is still in production, so it'll be a while before I can post my work from there.

@01:22have you got a tip how to actually start off with 3d animation?
I am practising 2d, but as I see 3d will be the future (except flash) and I would like to try it out and already start pratising...
cool shots anyways^^

@01:21That was great! It's wonderful to see someone making the progress in your career like you do. I know how hard it is to get started. I have yet to start in a real studio. I apply to everything I think is a good fit, but nothing yet. I've come close once, I really hoped this was the one to start my career. I sure would love to hear how you got those great gigs. Might give me hope for the future.
