The company known as Disney is filled to the brim with investors. They currently own the rights to four currently running animation studios such as Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm. When making your own animation studio, you have to essentially “sell” your studio to a publishing company so they may invest in it. The publishing company(sometimes multiple depending on the project) will give your studio projects to work on and they’ll give you the necessary resources to do so.
The word “outsource” means to “obtain (goods or a service) from an outside or foreign supplier, especially in place of an internal source”. It’s far more common than you think. Office spaces, website structures, and advertisements in general. Even your favorite cartoons from early the 2000s were outsourced to studios in eastern countries such as Korea & China. Western countries do this frequently and vice versa in eastern countries. Japanese animation studios outsource their work to western studios time after time. You even see the name of certain studios in the credits of a show.
Some studios don’t outsource at all. Even the most work may be overwhelming to them. But even small studios with limited resources can make a difference in the work they produce. So don’t be discouraged when making a studio yourself and don’t be afraid of doing it alone. Try to work with others and they’ll work with you. “Teamwork” is key to success.
We at Springboard Incubators are opening a small animation studio ourselves and are in need of a handful of animators & storyboarding artists. Here’s our contact information:
We are also hiring teachers to teach students of all ages how to be an animator and to work with art programs such as Moho, Adobe Animate & Toon Boom Harmony.
