In 3 Decades, CalArts Animation Alumni Have Generated $30 Billion For Hollywood Studios

Directors who have graduated from CalArts’ character and experimental animation programs have generated over $30 billion in box office grosses since 1985. However you slice it, that’s a remarkable amount. The school has created a couple interactive charts to document the amounts, and even though the charts were ostensibly made to promote the school, they’re useful infographics in their own right that show the ballooning influence of CalArts in Hollywood, and particularly theatrical animation.
