"I am a cast member at the Magic of Disney Animation, and I feel the need to inform our guests about some very unethical decisions that have been made clear in the past couple of days. For those of you who miss seeing actual animators ever since the studio has closed, but still enjoy being able to draw at the Animation Academy, you should know that as of February 1, 2005 there will be NO trained Disney Artists at The Magic of Disney Animation. Guests will be taught by an untrained cast member who will be tracing from a template. You may just as well ask the person at the front of the room for a piece of paper and go trace it yourself." - Magic of Disney Animation artist For more information, http://www.d-troops.com/articles.php?id=150 here is the entire article. Also, www.SaveDisney.com has a brand new animation article up. It's a must read.
