    If I were in NY, I would do whatever it took to get to that school. If you have any creative desire beyond being a studio desk monkey, this is a golden opportunity.

    I’m trying to get a sense of Plympton’s reputation among the animator crowd… is he actually well-loved and received with open arms? Who does he appeal to?

    He’s the kind of guy I admire for going it alone and getting a lot done by himself throughout the years. The DIY attitude and everything is great, but I can’t stand looking at his films…

    Anyone agree?
