JOBS IN CALI: Buck LA Looking For Animators

Unfortunately, these days I have to turn away a lot of animation jobs because I can only work remotely due to my teaching schedule.  Buck LA is one of my most favorite studios to work in LA. Amazingly creative work and they treat artists with respect.

I heard from Buck... they said have some work coming in  and wanted to put me on hold.  I sent them a short list of rec's but so many of my friends in animation have moved out of the US for work.  For those still in LA looking for work, contact

Video Game Layoff Stories

I like to keep this blog positive. But the long thought stable landscape of gaming which has stayed the most secure sector of creating animation til now... has been hit more and more by restructuring and layoffs and we need to talk about it.
