Our team went down to LA for CTN last month and had an amazing time. We met some of the best animators including Doug Sweetland and Andreas Deja. They had some great wisdom to share, first they were talking about what its like to work on large teams with different types of people. That it's very important to work well together, to remember that everyone is working towards the same goal, to produce high quality animation. Then finally they talked about character, whether it be the characters in your film or the people you work with, character is king. As animators we must be able to balance the professional, and the artistic parts of our job, while working together as a team.
