Excellent advice from AnthonyHolden.deviantART.com on how to pursue a career in animation. 


What are studios looking for? How can I get into a good animation school? What should I be studying?

I get a lot of these types of questions now and again, and I never know how to answer them. I can’t be sure of what studios are looking for, I don’t control admissions policies to schools, and I have little idea what makes for a current and relevant curriculum. There are a lot of variables in your bid for a career in animation, and it’s kind of impossible to control most of them. You must be crazy to want this job!

I find it helpful to focus on the things I can control. Among those things are your study habits and how you spend your personal time. It’s good to work hard and have goals—without them we would get nowhere. Study hard and make decisive strides towards achieving your art goals. But in the heat of that pursuit, don’t forget to go out and live your life!

If you spend any amount of time looking at artists online, you’ve probably figured out by now that there are about a million dudes and dudettes in internetville who draw better than you (I relive this realization daily). Once your have done your best to rise to their level, the only tool you have to compete with these crazy talents is your background, your personal character—is you!

Consider developing your whole self with the same raw focus and intensity that you develop a particular skill set. Get focused. Go out, have adventures. Run, jump, skin your knee, fall in love, root loudly for the away team at a baseball game, barely escape a crash of stampeding rhinos, live to see another day. Experience things big and small. Go for a walk. The world is full of wonders.

I know this advice is not particularly animation-specific, but maybe that’s for the best. At any rate, it is something I feel strongly about. Animation is great, and there are few things that I enjoy doing more than drawing and storytelling. But in order to have stories to tell, first you have to live them.

Be good, and see you soon!

PS, if you were looking for advice on draftsmanship you should probably be reading this.

What REALLY matters to Jobs.
Thank you Steve. For ALL of these.


RIP: Steve Jobs, co-founder and former-CEO of Apple Inc., passed away today at the age of 56.

Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004. His failing health forced him to resign his role as Apple’s CEO earlier this year, as he felt he could “no longer meet my duties and expectations.”

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being,” Apple said in a statement. “Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have build and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

Apple is asking fans to send their thoughts, memories, and condolences torememberingsteve@apple.com.

October 14th was recently designated Steve Jobs Day by Apple fans.

Soup is hiring!

Are you creative "just because", do you develop your own projects and are you unafraid of leaving well-travelled paths? Do you feel inspired by challenging problems? Are you honest and straightforward, speaking your mind? Do you like to work iteratively, frequently shipping products and updates that have an immediate impact on thousands of users? Do you appreciate a userbase that sometimes gets ahead of you in terms of creativity, and generally, awesomeness? Can you handle the freedom, flexibility and responsibility that comes with working in a productive, fast-paced and sometimes chaotic startup environment?

If you are that kind of person and your skillset fits one of the following job descriptions, we'd really like to hear from you.

a) JavaScript developer

The upcoming Soup relaunch relies heavily on JavaScript. You will be working with bleeding-edge HTML5 client-side technologies, both developing rich, touch-ready visualizations of multimedia data and helping to build up a developer-friendly framework for client-side app development.
Optional bonuses: Design and UI skills, experience writing libraries that other people depend on, experience with client-side frameworks like Backbone.js, experience with CoffeeScript, Python or Ruby (on Rails).

b) Operations generalist

Soup needs someone that takes care of a growing stack of servers and software components in a holistic fashion, meaning that you really care how all the machines are doing, what we could do to improve speed and uptime, while at the same time growing the service and the userbase. You'll need to move terabytes of data, control multiple instances of our application and plan future architecture changes to keep up with Soup's growth. Familiarity with scaling PostgreSQL (replication, etc.) is required. Some cloud knowledge would come in handy too. 

You'll be joining a team of three in Vienna, Austria, working out of a hip coworking space (though a future move to Silicon Valley is likely) and be an equal when it comes to shaping the future of the product and company. The position is competitively remunerated. You are not required to speak German, but your English should be adequate for elaborate technical discussions, knowledge transfer and documentation.

Our general tech stack involves many of the latest and greatest in web development, from RoR to Python, JavaScript/HTML5, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcache, Varnish and many others. See for yourself!


- Familiarity with Soup and/or competing products as a user
- Activity in open source projects, user groups, hacker communities, etc.
- Startup affinity, familiarity with the "lean startup" methodology, metrics-driven development, agile development practices, etc.
- Front end and UI design, marketing or SEO skills
- Immediate availability

We ♥ diversity: Members of groups underrepresented in the tech scene will be given precedence. Please don't hesitate to apply.

To apply, email team@soup.io. No need for formalities, provide a personal introduction and links to your work instead.
