Disney CG Animator Q&A

Cg-Char has a discussion board based interview with Doug Bennett where the board members get to ask the questions. Doug is currently a Supervising Animator at Disney Feature Animation on Chicken Little, the first totally CG animated film from Disney. His previous work includes Disney’s Treasure Planet, Fantasia2000, and the Care Bears animated TV show.

I believe that I’m very lucky to be doing something that I love for a living. Not only that, but no matter how ‘successful’ any of us becomes, there is always something more to strive for. And I don’t mean money. There’s something pure about the arts, in that it’s not really about the paycheck, it’s so much about putting your soul into your work. It’s hard for me to put into words. But I believe we as artists answer to more than our studio bosses, we answer to the art itself.
