>>12523609 >>12523675 Low pay and shit conditions have always been a staple of common anime since the 50's.
The only studios that treat their animators like proper employees and people are Khara and Kyoto Animation (and maybe Ghibli, though they're dead).
The only difference is that there are less skilled animators in the industry nowadays compared to the 80's because anime has become less popular than other mediums such as video games, which is where most young talent who want to work in the entrainment industry in Japan go to.
>>12523694 >there are less skilled animators in the industry nowadays compared to the 80's But animation is better. It's a miracle. >anime has become less popular than other mediums such as video games It's much more popular then in the 80s now.
>>12523707 That's because Kondo was the animation director for all of Takahata's projects and did a substantial amount of key animation for Miyazaki's schtick as well. He was born with an illness though that resulted in his lungs getting punctured. He wasn't healthy to begin with, and he always kept quiet about these things until it was too late.
Still, Miyazaki is an insane workaholic and doesn't tolerate much creativity from his animators, but the working conditions at Ghibli are vastly superior to most other animation studios. If you want to see what your typical animation studio is like, read Gainax's Nonteki Memoirs. A college dorm would pale in comparison to the shitholes animators have to work in.
First of all, there are no more "American" animators. They're all from Canada, as are most western animation studios in North America these days. They also mostly use flash animation, which is typically even worse than CGI.
Also, animation is completely dead in the US. Disney has already dissolved its animation studios in favor of CGshit like Frozen. Most of the western shows that you see with good animation are from Korea, like Avatar and all those DC animated movies.
Let me tell you, Korea and China will dominate the animation industry in less than a decade. They have more young, talented animators and can work with more styles of animation than your typical Japanese studio.
>>12523798 >The majority of American animation studios are located in California. It's been this way for decades. >CG animation is still animation. If you're referring to 2D animation, there are still 2D animatics made for CG movies.
Well yeah, if you count CG then most "animation" studios are in California. But hand-drawn animation on a large scale is dead in the US. This is a fact.
