  1. We saw this in Cape Town the other day,didn’t know what the heck it was till we read this article! Awesome form of creativity,wish i could see it in action heh

  2. KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) 😉 , a motto I learned from my dean.

  3. Dont agree with the numbers?Then send us your countries official animation body’s contact information and we’ll go digging. We’ve found that Asia,China,Japan might not use Linkedin so help us find an accurate source please! Stay Awesome!

  4. Thank you Sheldon! Appreciate the advice 🙂

  5. Thank you Anje! Glad we could help 🙂

  6. From the discussions it seems that they dont really use LinkedIn as a Job profile, so I guess thats why the number is so small 🙂

  7. We appreciate it Oliver and thanks for dropping in! The data is purely from LinkedIn so although I dont believe its 100% accurate it’s just whats being listed on a large business profile platform. Open to any sources 😀

  8. Thank you for the list, we’ll update it soon!

  9. Any Blizzard work would be great! If you have anything else, then mail them to us anyway, we’d love to see it!

  10. Nigeria added!Thanks Nwobodo!

  11. Thank you for the heads up Michael, we’ve added you awesome folk to the map and added your name as a thanks as well 😉 Stay awesome!

  12. And Chile is added! We added your name on the map to say thanks for the heads up 🙂

  13. Definitely!We’ve had more than one request to add your country and will update it soon 🙂

  14. Hi Fred! We’ve updated the numbers for France, thanks for the heads up! We’ve also contacted Japan’s Animators board to ask for correct numbers. Plus we added your name in the map as thanks 🙂

  15. Hi Toto, can you give us an idea what title to search for? Is there a specific word they use for animator in Argentina which we can use to update the stats? *We’ve contact the Japan board and asked for numbers 😉

  16. Hi Toto!Thanks for dropping in 🙂 On a global scale it was the best data source we could find. Were in the process of contacting a few animation groups to see if we can get accurate results for Japan and Argentina (since those are only stats from LinkedIn). Let us know if you have any people we can contact!Stay awesome!

  17. Hi Peter, so I’ve updated France (thanks for the heads up) but would like to know if you can give a suggestion for a better title keyword I should search for that’s specific to the animation industry in the Netherlands?

  18. Hi Peter!Glad you could drop in to have a look 🙂 Definitely a fun way to create an idea of what the data could be but in a global scale it was a tough one. If you have anyone we can contact for 100% accurate results let us know 🙂 we’re already mailing a few animation groups for different countries. Thanks for the info and Stay awesome!

  19. Hi Sikura! We’ve made some updates and added Iran, please come have a look and let us know what you think 🙂

  20. Hi Sikura!Thanks for visiting 🙂 We’ll add the data as soon as our developer comes back.We started with a few countries but as people ask about theirs we add it as soon as we get the numbers. If Iran has an Animation group we can contact please let us know and we’ll drop them an email 🙂 Stay awesome!

  21. Hi! We’ve made some updates and added Columbia, please come have a look and let us know what you think 🙂

  24. Definitly agree, we’re adding data to different countries as soon as people ask,we’ll let you know as soon as we grt those numbers and list them 🙂

  25. Hi Nanda!Peter mentioned the same thing and we’re looking into it 🙂 thank you for visiting and the advice!Stay awesome!

  26. Hi James, thanks for visiting!For this exercise the person had to have the word “animator” in their title on LinkedIn . Although not the best way to get 100% accuracy for the numbers it was the best way of coming close. If you have accurate numbers or someone we can contact then please let us know and we’ll update 🙂 Stay awesome!

  27. Hi Fred!Thank you for the interesting feedback and links!The filter was just “Animator” in Job Title and “Current” (Not Current and Past). We agree,the stats are definitely not 100% but on a Global scale its the best we could find 🙂 We’ve already been given a few emails to mail to get precise numbers…so interesting!Thanks for commenting 🙂

  28. Awesome, thanks for the info Roger 🙂
