Top Five Reasons that I Want to Change CareersEva Glettner
Disney is a magical place. It’s evident in every object that has been kissed by the Disney stamp of approval. Growing up in Los Angeles, Disneyland has always held a special place in my heart. Disney movies are some of the first movies I have ever seen. I suppose that I never put too much thought into just how much work goes into a Disney film. I just sat back in a carefree manner, and let myself get whisked away. Well, after seeing just how intricate a Disney film is from start to finish (namely, FROZEN, which you should all run to see), I want in. No, seriously. I am unbelievably blown away by the entire process and I hope that Disney animation is hiring, because I’m coming a knockin. Think it’s too late for a mother with three kids to find a new career? I say, NO WAY.
1. This is what an office should look like. 1 of 5
Cool, no? An office should be inspiring and beckon creativity and imagination. What's more imaginative than working out of building anchored by Mickey's hat? Nothing.
2. These are what office hallways should look like. 2 of 5
To get fellow team members excited about new films in the pipeline, the halls are decorated and changed up quite frequently. How fun must it be to walk by an image that you had a hand in creating? Yes, please.
3. Feedback is Constantly Provided. 3 of 5
One of the many things that impressed me on my tour of the Disney animation studio is how much every team member is valued. The movie making process takes years. There are writers, producers, directors, riggers, and even creatives who come up with ways to make animated hair flow naturally and seamlessly. Yes, HAIR. Everyone works as a team to produce the best possible content around. I dig it.
4. You Give Birth to a Snowman Named Olaf. 4 of 5
Everyone working together with input from top notch people like, oh, say, John Lasseter, allows you to birth a snowman. But not just any snowman, a lovable, goofy guy full of heart that will tap into the psyches of children and adults everywhere. I WANT IN.
5. You Help Create a Movie that is Sure to Become a Classic. 5 of 5
Go see Frozen. And then do me a HUGE favor....stay for the credits. Watch ALL of the names scroll down. EVERY SINGLE PERSON matters.
Frozen is beyond amazing. Take a look at this trailer and then run to the theater to see it on November 27th. Okay, you can bring your kids, too. Just save me a seat.
