This whole bit is made all the funnier by knowing that all of the guards were just random extras who weren’t told what was going to happen only that they weren’t allowed laugh at any cost as they wouldn’t be payed if they did.

"When I was a kid, I believed you would become a mermaid when you went in the water to swim".
I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.

On the one-month anniversary of Michael Brown’s death, his family gathered at the Ferguson Police Department to again demand justice for his murder. Where is Darren Wilson, and why has he still not been arrested? #farfromover #staywoke

Shocking details of wage-theft conspiracy emerge in a class action lawsuit filed against DreamWorks, Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Digital Domain 3.0, Sony Pictures Imageworks and others.
I don’t think this directly affected me, in my time at Disney, as I was always too junior (and heretical) to be desirable within the studio, never mind to another studio. I’m sharing it because while it’s not as fun as, say, browsing character design blogs, it is important for anyone wanting to get into the animation industry to read about this. The whole of animation history is full of studios taking advantage of their employees and it is not in their interest to change, which is why employees must be vigilant not to be taken advantage of, and not to let it happen to others. No matter what your studio may tell you about being a happy family, it’s a business, and will make cold-blooded business decisions when it suits them – in fact the whole ‘happy family’ rhetoric is a cold-blooded business decision, as it encourages employee loyalty and is much less expensive than competitive pay.* It isn’t in anyone’s interest to revisit the bidding wars of the ’90s because everyone suffers in the long run, but that does not make it OK for studios benefiting from record profits not to pass that along to the people who made the films, never mind conspire with each other to keep their workforce from finding just compensation anywhere else.
And for people who take only a recreational interest in animation: it ain’t all peaches and cream: be an informed fan.
*To be fair, I have worked at studios that are, more or less, happy families, but the truth of it seems to be in an inverse relationship to size and to explicit statements of familial happiness.
