My last post prompted me to discuss this. Personally, I feel CG animation in its present form is a short lasting trend. This is very arguable, I know, due to the simple fact of the duration of hand-drawn animation. It just seems that in its present form, CG looks to be a one trick pony, like 4D movies at parks(script of 4D movie: splash water, throw some 3D stuff around at the viewer, blast some air at them, done).
I just recently quit my animation career. I loved it, but seriously, that job market is wayyy to oversaturated now. I don't think Disney is fooling anyone. They are cheapening their brand with mass amounts of Pixar and CGI support. Eisner's coments about hand drawn animation as being dead is moronic. Seriously, did they all sit there and really think that Home on the Range was going to be an animation blockbuster? If so, that's enough reason right there as to why they shouldn't be working for Disney anymore.
Before I REALLY start going, what are your opinions as to the mass Pixar-ification of the resorts. Does anyone share my opinion that the focus is being lost and they're cheapening the Disney name by forgetting what made them the Disney they are today? If not, please explain.
This has the potential to be a heated argument. Please, for the sake of us all, lets keep the thread at a respectful, calm, and mature discussion.
