Walt Disney Animation Studios


  It has been a LOOOONG haul. It has been a lot of years, a lot of wondering, waiting, and perseverance but the day has finally come that I can announce that I will finally be starting at Disney Animation as a hand drawn animator. 
  It's a looooong story as well, which perhaps in time I will tell on this blog, but for now, I celebrate! See you at the Producers Show!

Congratulations Matt,

Ive read your blog from afar for a good while now, like most here, and its been totally inspiring to see you keep on working at 2d, no less sharing your knowledge to help us all improve..

What with Chomet's film in full swing over here in Edinburgh and chugging along nicely, and Disney on the 2d bandwagon too, lets hope its the start of more to come....

Again, congratulations! and have fun!

Lou Hamou-Lhadj said...

Awesome man! I'd love to hear your take on how you're adapting to a paperless studio. The opportunity is certainly well deserved! Here's to hopefully meeting someday now that we're under the same corporate umbrella.

Matt Williames said...

Lou:
Thanks so much man! We are actually still using paper and pencil thankfully! A MAJOR victory, for now-- I know they seem pretty keen and using them for "the next" one. Whenever that happens. But yeah, if you're ever down here look my office up!

Dude, I'm so happy for you. I hope you have a long and fruitful career there.

When do you actually start? I'd love to come down and check out the studio again, bring you my latest test. Feels kinda weird having not seen you in a few weeks.

Hope Iris is doing well.

For your giving nature and willingness to support so many bloggers with your invaluble advice and experience. I cant think of anyone more deserving of a realised dream. Congratulations to you and your family Matt. Well deserved. Your news has just charged my batteries.

Rini said...

Man, I've been watching your blog for years! Your awesome animation clips kept me going through some rough patches in college and continue to inspire me today. It's great to hear that Disney has finally taken you onboard, a brilliant animator. Help show why traditional animation kicks butt!
