                      Thanx for advice. I share my own deep pasion for Star Wars so the thing with Lucasfilm is hard to acheave.
                      Still: this video made me realize that i need to keep going with my dreams and wishes of what i know and love.
                      Maby there is still hope for creative beginners like me there :)

                        Tomorrow, when I graduate from high school, I'll feel really good, but I think that there is still hope for me to go to animation schools, I'll do my animation portfolio (as a character designer), get a job that I want, and continue learning how to drive.😊 God is always there to help me.

                                      Thank you, Pixar! I'm an animation graduate that's still working part time at a pizza place 3 years after graduation x_x I constantly feel like I'm going nowhere and that all my hard work was for nothing. But seeing the films you guys create and especially seeing this very video helps remind me that it'll all pay off and I'll find myself where I belong in the near future :)

                                              Jonas Rivera: "The smallest stuff, I believe, you come at it with passion leads to bigger better things". I believe this is the sentence that not only sums Pixar up perfectly, but also this mixed with the simplicity and professional honesty of these people, is the actual "secret" of Pixar's success.

                                                    I graduated a month ago. I'm working retail in my hometown right now, which means that every parent of anyone I ever went to school with is asking what I'm going to do with my life. I'm applying to jobs every single day, but no one wants to hire me. I'm trying to get some of my short stories published too, so my inbox is full of both job rejections and publishing rejections. Before I graduated, I got rejected from my dream internship program. That's still been gnawing at me.
                                                    Basically, I'm panicking. This really helped

                                                      I always wanted them or someone to make a new shirt that says Shrek is love Shrek is life and have the words “Shrek ” crossed out what an x and replaced with Coco above each Shrek word!

                                                        None of this was actual solid advice...
                                                        “Don’t stress out” & “get sleep” isn’t good advice especially people pursuing animation.
