Okay ladies and gentleman - I would love to hear your opinion (good or bad) on the recent comment made by Lino Disalvo (Head of Animation for the film Frozen) regarding women being difficult to animate. Please feel free to send me any comments or general feedback!

The comment is also included below if you have not had an opportunity to read it yet. 

"Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry."

Anonymous asked: do you stay there for thanksgiving and christmas, or do you get to go home?

In theory you could try and request off or give away any shifts during the holidays, however priority is given to full-time and part-time cast members based on their seniority.  

So essentially, if you are part of the College Program, I would go ahead and anticipate on working through any holidays that occur during your program as there is no guarantee you would be given those days off.

I believe it is closed until November 20th! 

Hope that’s helpful! 

Anonymous asked: what are some good sites to look at for disney news?

For just overall news I’m assuming? 

  • Rotoscopers - These guys aren’t Disney specific, but they cover Disney quite a bit, and in general just offer a great variety with what news they offer. 
  • Disney Parks Blog - This is Disney run, and it’s good for construction updates and photos for both Disneyland and Disney World 
  • Mice Chat - More general and widespread Disney news (also good for the international parks).

Those are probably the three I would recommend the most as they tend to be more fact based, as well as quick with news.  

Let me know if that wasn’t at all remotely helpful! 

Anonymous asked: So do u know anything about the avatar land thing? is that still happening?

Hello! I’m going to go ahead and say this is a bit of a complicated question, so apologies in advance if I don’t do it justice.  But essentially, the project is still on the table as far as I know, however whether due to monetary constraints or just the sheer magnitude of the project, no firm details have been announced.

The expansion is supposed to go in Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World, however, it seems safe to say that nothing can proceed if they don’t move Circle of the Lion King.  Although, I did read somewhere (sorry, blanking on the source) that construction walls have been put up to move the show to Africa, which I would argue is actually the best move thematically anyway, so once that is settled, the land may proceed at full force.  

But there aren’t any firm details as of yet that I can give you about aesthetics or planned attractions.  I will, however, put this on my watch list for ya’ll!  Thanks for the question!
