Shadows in the studio

Last week was job-shadow day at the studio, and no we didn't feed the aspiring animators to the lion. But they did spend time with the texturing and modeling teams who are busy with R&D so.... close enough. The high school students were also treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Khumba, our second film in the production slate with Director, Anthony Silverston and a brief history of animation in South Africa by Supervising Producer, Stuart Forrest.

Judging by their feedback, the students enjoyed their day at the studio or maybe it's just better than going to school!

“The atmosphere is great, everyone is friendly and it’s really interesting.” “Very relaxed and fun environment and informative.”

“Awesome working environment and everyone is very helpful.”

“You really get to see what you have to do in animation and you are able to see if it’s suitable for you.”

A big thank-you to Cathy, our H.R. Manager, for organising the day!

You guys rock, not feeding the kidlets to the lion. I can't imagine the amount of work it took to get you where you are, but congratulations for coming so far and remaining such a nurturing influence on the next generation of South African animators.
