This issue ends with John Dilworth's review of Mamoru Oshii's cybertech thriller, Ghost in the Shell, while Frankie Kowalski offers up some Desert Island picks from a variety of independent filmmakers who, at one time or another, have indulged their fantasies about making animated features.
I suppose this is in the way of a help wanted ad, which I guess is nothing to be ashamed of. So, here it goes--Animation World Magazine is looking for writers and artists who would like to contribute articles, film/TV/interactive/book reviews or news items, as well as cartoons or comic strips.
Although I sometimes have delusions of being a world renown expert in animation, there is no way that either me or my Associate Editor, Frankie Kowalski, can be aware of all that is going on in today's rapidly expanding animation universe. For instance, as of this writing, Animation World Magazine has been "visited" by readers from at least 52 countries, and the number is constantly growing!
So, I extend my invitation to please email me with your ideas and/or request a list of our requirements and what we pay. (It's not much, but we do pay
contributors.) Although English is our main language, we will accept submissions in other languages; in such instances, we will probably publish the piece
in both the original language and in English. (However, it does speed things along if you submit queries in English or French.) Thank you.
