Actually I'm an older Indy artist looking to enter the industry full- time. I wonder if my age is an obstacle though. Mind if I send you a note on this?

Actually I wasn't asking about WB in particular. I just wanted your input as a professional.
I'm looking to attemopt to enter the industry, but I turn 42 this summer. I wanted to ask your opinion if you think my age would be a major hinderance. I would like to think my talent would stand out, but I need honest feedback.
Thanks in advance.

I think this is excellent. I had a similar opporunity thrown my way from Disney's Herbert D Ryman (Rymanarts) program. Although I was still in high school at the time I would've loved more chances to attend the various skill shops they had for young artists. Such an eye opening experience.

Thanks so much for sharing! And sorry you're getting such weird responses. :\ I, for one, am thrilled that you've been posting about all these opportunities to break into the animation field. I don't feel like you're fishing for business in the least, but letting people know where the opportunities are that they're looking for. I always find the job hunt to be the most intimidating thing for an artist, and most of the time I don't even know where to start, so I'm incredibly grateful that you've been giving all your watchers the heads-up on potential jobs. So while I'm way too old for this particular opportunity, I'm still glad you're posting them and I hope you continue to do so in the future, despite the random embittered few who think everyone is out to scam them.

Hi LeSean, I'd like to take this opportunity to ask you if graduating from college and getting a degree is something to be seriously considered nowadays? I see a lot of artists - actually, not just artists - who are totally self-taught and do a incredibly great job.

I mean, sure, skill is not something you get out of a degree, but rather from working very hard. And I'm thinking about focusing entirely on having a good skillset instead of studying just to get a degree. Though, I've heard that it's OK for freelancers, but not for contract positions in a studio - especially when working abroad(moving from Europe -> US). On the other hand I rarely see this requirement in the job listings: Portfolio seems to be everything, no matter what the education looks like.

It'd be great to hear your thoughts since there are so many different aspects to take into consideration.

If you have an opportunity to get work in the feild you went to college for, wasn't that the objective of college? The argument is that graduating college only to not find jobs in the field you studied for is the problem. This is an opportunity for those who want a career in animation to have that opportunity WHILE they're in college. It's a good look. I see many people complaining about the lack of opportunity, but when one comes up, it's suddenly a "bad" thing to join a studio upon graduation. Why are they in college in the first place!?

Thank you for your time.

I guess I wrote my text in a miserable way, I didn't want to say that joining a studio upon graduation is a bad thing. What I meant is that I'm not sure how important it is to have a degree in this industry when looking for a job - whether it is as a freelancer or in a studio.

the purpose is to get a degree so that you can get a job. What WB is offering is you getting a gig guaranteed WHILE earning your degree. Doesn't get much better than that. This is how things used to be back in the 80s.

No really, no matter what I do, I'm never picked. Heck, been looking for a job and no one wants me. Tried scholarships for 4 years, got nothing.
And lately my family has been thinking I'm a failure. My mom has been pretty hard on me lately too.


Anyways, sorry...^^'

But good luck to everyone! :)

Anyways, I assume you have to be from the States for it to apply? If yes, couldn't have applied anyways. It's still very cool that they're doing this. Does it mean that the animation industry is looking for more people/that there are jobs open (if they search to form more people)?

Okay dude, no. Your journals are getting fishy. First you go for people who don't have their degree in BA of BFA and now you're targeting high school students, the majority of which are not educated about the benefits of having a degree in order to be protected by their union rights?

Warner Bros Animation must be really desperate if they're stooping this low to target the aspiring youth. Its too bad because i respect you as an artist LeSeanThomas, but its clear you're a businessman first. Even if the high school students were to become animators at Warner Bros, it will not change the inevitability that these kids will have to work for peanuts and get treated like dirt.

Thanks but no thanks.

A simple " no Thanks" would have worked for me. But " fishy Journals?" " Stooping Low? " Targeting Aspiring Youth ?" " I'm a Busiinessman ( and not an artist)" Self-Righteous-Annonymity-much? LOL. Have you read the article? or skimmed through it before reaching to your own perceived conclusion and rushing to the keyboard for my attention? :

"Through the Warner Bros. Reach program, ONE outstanding student is awarded the Hanna-Barbera/Animation Honorship each year that includes a scholarship and four full-time paid internships at the company during four consecutive summers while enrolled in college. Successful Reach program graduates will be eligible for full-time positions at Warner Bros."

I'm under the impression that you've " Worked for peanuts and got treated like dirt " at WB, or maybe Sony, or maybe Nickelodeon, or any studio that offers a program for you to learn WHILE you're in Colleged getting your degree. In the end students have a right to choose what they want with the options out there available for them to learn, or not learn. Whether it's going through a school program or going at it on your own.

P.S. It's safe to say that my Journals are ALWAYS about pushing upliftment and information to the forefront for artists who arentin the know in an attempt to put them on to the industry as much as i can. They've done more for my followers here and DA than you have. I'm not high-jacking your page with baseless troll-rants and trying to discourage your followers from participating in your Pokemon Fanart polls and fanzines. Please be nice. :-)

I still stand by my statement. Although you are not wrong about people being able to go through the industry this way, it is better for someone to go to art school/animation school what have you and there are easier ways to get scholarships than for a bunch of high schoolers and animators to fight tooth and nail over each other for this grand prize you have quoted.

I'm not trying to discourage you from posting what you would like in your journals of course, but I am also entitled to my opinion. I'm sure there are some people who are skimming these comments who will take it upon themselves to do the extra research.

I admit, I jumped the gun when I accused you of these things that I realistically do not know for sure, but I am not wrong about how industries target the youth when they are straight out of college or animators without degrees. As I have said before, I do respect you and your work and I still do, but I'm wary of your journals because I do not want aspiring artists to be mislead.

I hope that you will think less of what I am saying as an attack and more as a great concern.

You have every right to be entitled to your opinion and speak your mind. And i have every right to speak the contrary and contest it. I also beleive it's not your responsibility to play shepard. freedom of opinion is awesome...if you understand that it's a privilege and with that comes responsibility and accountability for what's said. You seem to be too smart and know better and this conversation would be different had i been at a line encouraging kids to check it out. Because you don't know me, that's the convenience of the keyboard: it perpetuates a desire for our thoughts to be taken seriously through text in a conversation that would otherwise be avoided in a real-time confrontation in person. I could also Block you if you'd like, to quell your concerns about my "fishy," faux- capitalist journals that are steering the minds of innocent youth. Or we can just agree to disagree. Let me know & Good luck with your projects/ career this year.
