From the start of this podcast we have always made it a point to be observant of what our effect on the animation industry is. Working as Canadians within this industry we have either been working on content for overseas clients or working on our own ideas and trying to expand the Canadian animation scene at home and abroad.
In this episode, we discuss our own personal thoughts based on the past three years. It revolves around the politics, the finances and the culture that we live in that defines our roles in the Canadian animation scene.
