Jim over at Seward Street talks about his shift of jobs from Dreamworks Animation to the upstart James Baxter Animation. I’m really looking forward to seeing the work that comes from the James Baxter studios, having Jim on the staff will only help, I’m sure.
Jim also talks about the coming resurgance of 2-D, aka Hand-Drawn, animation. Rumors are Disney is retreiving some of those old animation desks from the warehouse by the Burbank Airport. First up! A return to Hand-Drawn Animated Shorts… guess who I think Lasseter will put in charge of this, Andreas Deja. Link!
