If you even have an inkling of working in animation-- whether as an animator, a storyboard artist, or a background painter-- this might be a good opportunity for you.

Oh man, I worked for Carl at Clambake Animation all this summer. He's a hilarious guy, and a really enjoyable person to work for. Defiantly make sure you catch this talk.
