There are many new ways to break into the animation and games industry.
While personal projects, conventions and gathering a fan base are, in my opinion, essential, we need to remember that artists still break in the old fashioned way.

…and most of them lose the job before they even apply.
Not because they aren’t good enough…
…because they don’t respond fast enough.
