FALL 2018 7 E D I T O R ' S N O T E You'll find writers and showrunners, art directors and production designers, CG riggers and lighters, storyboard artists and color stylists, technical directors and effects artists, to name just a few. I am consistently awed by the depth of creativity, innovation and imagination in this group, and how truly collaborative the process of animation can be. The importance of shared contribution is evident, for example, in our feature on Ralph Breaks the Internet (p. 34), where we looked at five different departments and their roles in the film. A different kind of contribution, one anchored in personal experience, is explored in "The Art of Inclusion" (p.22), an article that focuses on how we can reflect different cultures into our work. To the outside world, The Animation Guild is a collective of artists who only draw but we know we are much more than that—we're a force of creators. Cheers, Alexandra Drosu P.S. Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you print your own t-shirts? Have you published a book? I want to hear from you for our first gift guide that features only items created by TAG members. THE ANIMATION GUILD IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER LOCAL IN THE UNION BECAUSE OF THE VARIETY OF JOBS THAT FALL UNDER IT.
