Troubles at Disney Animation

I found this article about the end of 2D animation at Disney through BoingBoing.

I have a couple of reasons for posting this here instead of my more general interest blog, Jurieland:

  • I think animation is closer to games than live action – everything is artificial, just like in games.
  • It’s interesting to watch industries being revolutionized by information technology – even if, in this case, the revolution seems to be very bad.
  • Disney is in the entertainment industry, and so are we. Their struggle to balance creativity and profitability is something professional, commercial game developers have to deal with every day.
