Korra!

Wham
There's new Korra material out there.
Some is legally released, other, not at all.

The legal: http://rufftoon.tumblr.com/post/15847963673/very-very-tiny-korra-preview-from-0-19-to-0-31
(posted the link to the Tumblr post, just so I don't repeat the observation).



I won't post a link to any of it. I'm sure anyone too curious can easily find the material now: one second on the web, and there are copies making the round now. A lost battle, in terms of trying to control it all.

The leaker admitted to a few interesting things:
They got a screener copy from Viacom.
The screener was sent as part of licensing.
The leaker is in the UK.
The leaker is talking about lying low for a while, for there may be investigations ( NO REALLY, YOU THINK????)

I can only shake my head sadly. What is the "leaker" thinking? I've seen people lose their jobs for something like this! In the end, the leaker will be hurting his or herself, or the people around them. Is a few minutes of videos worth it all? No.
Please, if you're someone who know who the leaker is, please tell him or her to stop. It just isn't worth risking their work for that. Not just their current work, but future jobs as well, as their employment records will be tainted, especially if they want to stay in the industry.
...
or perhaps they don't care.

I can assure you, I didn't leak it.

hearing about this and a few other incidences, I have to wonder if they just don't consider the ramifications of their actions. :/

Wow, when I first read this post at first I thought that tumblr post you did wasn't a legal release and I was going to be D=

But man, I wish people wouldn't do things like that, it's just not cool. I hope they consider the consequences of their actions.

It sucks that people are leaking things illegally. I don't get why they would do that really.

Ugh! These leaks are infuriating. Even for those of us who don't want to be spoiled, it's nearly impossible to avoid.

At this point it's pretty hard to avoid the leaked clips - they're everywhere! D:

Leaking stuff like that is a bit dumb. and for what? 15 seconds of glory on the internet?

I found the TUMBLR you are speaking of--this kid's in high school. (I deduced from the other entries they wrote about Math and Chem and English test, I mean I COULD be wrong and this could be some over-achieving adult who decided to take advanced mathematics, chemistry and english but the odds are low on that XD)

Not to say that they should be exonerated from their mistakes but um...that does explain a few things.

Hi, I'm wondering if I can get your opinion on something...

I'm going to be applying for art school soon and I was wondering if a degree in illustration can prepare you for a job in animation? I have to pay for school all on my own and there is a two-year intensive program I'm looking at that offers illustration and animation. My dream job is to be a graphic novelist but I also want to work in animation. As you have worked in animation but also do your own comics work on the side, I was wondering what your advice would be. (Sorry to contact you over your livejournal like this, I'd use a private Tumblr message but I couldn't find an ask box on your site. I've been a fan for a long time--we even met at ComicCon '07 at the Flight booth. If you could just drop me a word, I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks so much!)

Yes and no.
I have seen many artists from art school make it into animation, even if it wasn't their majors. The doors are never closed to talented people and the studios will nab you if you show promise.
Think even wider than just animation and comics: you could freelance in illustration, do designs for video games, etc. All you will learn can be applied to many other fields. It will all depend where your interest lies and where your skills shine best.
You can do both: work in animation and make a book on the side, but let me warn you: a day time job can be draining and intensive. Not all artists manage to juggle both, as it eats up all your life, ha ha! Still, it is feasible.

You can keep contacting me here. Also, I do believe it is possible to send messages via Tumblr. Just not quite sure of the interface for it, but I have gotten private messages via the site.
