Hitlers Animation Studio, or Animators Working for Free?
Anyone who has listened to The Secret Space Base Podcast or have read my rants here or on the 21st Century Stop motion Facebook page, know how passionate I feel about animators not working for “Free”. We are trained professional artists, who have gone through training and schools like every one else to learn how to do the things we do. And yet constantly we are taken advantage of by people who want us to do something for free. Would you ask a carpenter to build you a house for free just to get the experience and because it would look good on a resume? Of course not! so why would you do that to an animator? I won’t go into it here, I’ll let angry Hitler express the frustrations of running an animation studio.
From Cartoon Brew:
“Creating free animation for companies has never worked out for anybody, not even Hitler. Animator Dennis Sisterson imagines the downward spiral of the German dictator’s animation studio after his company agrees to produce a music video without being compensated.”
