This week in AWN's Forums, a member wants to know if anyone else in the animation business is feeling effects from the writer's strike. In other strike related posts, members are talking about the conditions that went into the 1940's Disney strike. Others continue to debate the relevance of life drawing for animators. There is a thread discussing the Annie nominations. An American is curious how it works for U.S. citizens to gain employment in Canada. A student requests information about the difference between the European and American animation industries. As well as, tools for teaching animation, the business of animation and, as always, brand-new stuff to check out in show and tell!
