If you are a young artist fresh out of the Art Academy, or if you are just a person with a passion for art who managed to learn a great deal on his or her own, you probably want to become a part of the animation industry. Being an animator can be extremely fun, however at the same time it can be truly tiresome and demanding.
It's official. This is the year of animation. So many films from the genre are sprouting up like spring daisies that it's making the Oscar race for Best Animation Feature Film a nail-biter. And it's only midyear. Add to the list of strong contenders the fifth chapter in the Ice Age franchise, a doozy of a yarn that couples the creation of the planets with earth's impending doom by a runaway meteor.
The race for the Best Animation Feature Film Oscar is on. Finding Dory may be the most touching and sentimental contender. On the other hand, The Secret Life of Pets has got to be the coolest of the challengers so far. It's a thoroughly amusing comedy thanks to the over-animated Kevin Hart and dour sarcastic Louis C.K. Those two make the lead characters vibrant. They make you want to get your bark on.
