I was surprised to recently hear that in certain cities animators who have worked for both feature animation and video games are having problems getting hired by feature houses because of video game experience, and vice versa! And anyone who worked on Sat AM TV , is simply beyond the pale- no matter what the demo reel looks like!
Is this really the state of things? Don't people look at demo reels? if this is the case, what is the logic behind this? Do we need to advise students to have separate demo reels and CVs for each area?
