Animator Keith Lango (VeggieTales, Disney, Robots) has an excellent series on his blog discussing the problems facing independent animators who want to market their work on the internet. Keith also has some good insights into what’s wrong with the current system and what might be done to change things. “The Great White Hope of Indy Animators” is a must-read for any animator interested in what possibilities (and problems) the internet holds.
And while you’re there, check out some of Keith’s animation and tutorials. It’s delightful stuff!
