    settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to new updates and will talk about this blog with my

  • Hey there, You’ve done a fantastic job. I’ll
    definitely digg it and individually suggest to my friends.
    I am sure they will be benefited from this web site.

    Here is my web blog :: zeznanie podatkowe (qr.af)

  • Keep up the good work guys, in keeping the art and the origins of animation alive! It’s important that we move with the times and appreciate how technology advances and enables evolution, but also we understand how we got there!

  • I am doing a animation webliography for a class in high school and we needed an online publication. I loved the set up of your website and the idea of it being peer edited, so i used it in my presentation.

  • SAS is an oasis of scholarship in the desert of animation-related film studies. I recently saw a notice that the SAS Journal was going to be folded. “Tell me it aint true!” Now I do not see any notice of this. Please clarify: is our beloved Journal going to continue to do its immensely useful and necessary work?

    Asap I will be sending my membership subscription fee. This site is worth supporting.

  • If the Journal folds and only the academic publishers have control over the only animation journal, it will be a huge defeat for students of animation. The unfair procedures of the academic publishers MUST be stopped (forcing authors to give up copyright, questionable loyalties, stunning over-charging for access, locking poor parts of the world out of access due to high fees, etc. etc.). The Journal had provided this for the field, and now I am afraid it has been lost.

    • While Animation Journal (edited by Maureen Furniss) has recently ceased publication, we don’t have any plans to fold at this time. We’re committed to our Open Access model, and have plans to revamp things a bit in terms of the online format in the coming months.

  • Excellent blog to much study material i request to you add rendering study material because it’s growing now days and student like me looking for technology in animation industry
