Animation Production

Animations have made it onto our everyday programming and worldwide screening.  Long-time anime shows that have been out there for many years.  We can go back as for as 30 years and find cartoons like "Kimba the White Lion" and "Speed Racer" having made an impression on American programming.  In more recent years we find  anime shows like Pokemon are now making it to the forefront of daily television programming.

New anime’s as well have captured audiences and are creating a strong following like "The Legend of Korra".  What has been more impressive is the dynamic animation and storyline from great animators like Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.  They are noted for movies such as Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service and the classic, Totoro.  

This type of production lends itself well to illustrators, artist, story board making, and writers.  The list goes on.  Even if you’re not artistically talented and just want to be in and around this type of environment, there are many jobs to choose from.  Look at what your good at; accounting, marketing or even being a gofer is a step in the door.  Working for movie distributers is also another approach to getting into the world of anime.

Companies such as FUNimation offer internships that cover a wide variety jobs (and not grunt jobs either) to help you get started.  Other better know companies in the U.S. that also distribute anime are Sony, Viz Media and Disney/Buena Vista.  When rolling more into the online prodution of anime, other jobs that include Web design and IT services open up.  How cool would it be to work on Final Fantasy as a web designer?
