"New Raven Animation to Target Former Disney Orlando Animators

January 20, 2004

Raven Moon Entertainment Inc. has formed a new animation company called Raven Animation Inc., with plans to target former Disney/MGM animators that recently lost their jobs on Jan. 12 because of the closing of Disney's animation operations at Disney/MGM studios in Orlando, Florida.

"Because of the new animated television programs that Raven Moon has set for development in 2004, including the award-winning MR. BICYCLE MAN, THE BOBO BLOCKS and THE CUDDLE BUG COUSINS, picking up these out of work animators is a good move for Raven Moon,” stated Raven Moon ceo Joey DiFrancesco. “Our company is growing and expanding and these former Disney/MGM animators will definitely be an asset to our company.''

"We believe that Raven Animation will be able to produce high quality animated projects from our studio in Orlando at a fraction of the cost that many of the Hollywood-based production companies are paying,” added Mike Gibilisco, director for Raven Animation and Raven Moon Entertainment.

Raven suggested that the new animation company would serve as a revenue source from other entertainment companies looking for quality animation at a lower cost. "

I am glad the animators from disney wont stay unemployed for long though.

I'm sure the animators will be delighted to be bought up in mass to work on the cheap.

Anyhoo seems like this is a case of people taking their dreams for reality; their website isn't exactly going to be attracting many feature-calibre artists.
