Cardiff?? Yeesh, I live in Bucks. Bit of a commute to do every day!!! How bout London instead?
why london? animators locked away in their little worlds doing their stuff. why suffer the overheads of living in the capital?
that’s why the exeter animation scene is so huge. wales would be the perfect place for a studio. isolated and quiet, nice scenery, etc.
i once heard about a studio in scotland. to get there, you have to travel into the middle of nowhere, along several dirt tracks, until you reach a loch, with a small pier and a couple of rowing boats. the studio is on the other side of the loch, and it takes an hour to row there. now THAT’S isolated, but they don’t want it any other way.
sorry for ranting, i just don’t see why the industry has to be centered around the capital.
and steve343 -> it’s nice that you’re optimistic, but maybe you should try being realistic. this is a very competetive industry.
