Well... It wasn't meant to happen this year. Yet, I'm a strong believer in persistence and the eventual pay off it usually brings with it. Today I received notification from Laika Animation Studios in Hillsboro Oregon, with the news that I had not been selected to attend this years summer internship program. Completing my attempts to enrich my skills a bit more and earn a some additional income to go towards my tuition, before heading our to CCA this autumn. For the record Disney Animation too passed on taking me on as an intern, yet I feel no ill will or sadness towards their decisions. If anything I can be comfortable with the fact that I was willing to have my work critiqued by two of the leading animation studios in the world.
