I’m very proud to see Animation Nationpersonally thanked in a letter from Roy Disney, jr. I have watched Mr. Disney on television since I was a child, holding onto animation’s glory days. Without him, Fantasia 2000 would not have happened. Without him, Wild Life would have.
The Nation has shown itself repeatedly to be THE forum where animators can come together and be a symbol of solidarity. A glance at the Nation might make anyone think that the community is not solid. But debate is an essential part of the Nation, and I know of no other place that so many animators young and old, American or not, from all aspects of the craft, and fans as well, have had the chance to get to learn so much about one another. We practice a lonely craft, and we need each other.
