Opportunity to become a part of an anime studio

Are you an aspiring animator looking for a place to start your resume? How
about an opportunity to become a part of an anime studio being built from the
ground up?
The Broken Windmill Studio is currently working on an anime based off the
producer’s own DND campaign. Right now all the music is almost done. And the
Story for the first two season are done. The first season is in the works
with full 22 minute episodes with about 13-20 episodes per season. We have
musicians, writers, and artists hard at work but we need more people.
Our main character artist is mainly tasked with drawing the main player
character designs. The roles for artists that need to be filled are:
Landscape, Creatures and Background people.
Our animators are also very few, a plethora of roles are open. What we’re
looking for here are people who can work with Open Toonz animator or MIA. We
have Open Toonz as a first option because it’s free to use in case you the
skill but not the money for the program.
The projected amount of time for us to get the first episode out is at least
next year. When I comes to pay, I can’t guarantee a steady pay or even pay at
all but our plans consist of making our early access debuts available on
first Patreon and from there we’ll see what happens. This is mainly a place
for you animators and artists to get yourselves out there. Expand your resume
and perhaps your notoriety in media with your work.

World Famous Street Artist Comes to Eugene
One of the most sought-after Chinese street artists is working in Eugene this week as part of the 20×21 EUG Mural Project. Hua Tunan was born in 1991 in Foshan, Guangdong province.

Great leadership opportunity

My name is Yasmeen, and I’m the U.S. Field Organizer with Global Zero, the international movement to eliminate nuclear weapons. Recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Global Zero is backed by an international community of leaders and experts, and powered by the creativity and passion of young people who understand that nuclear weapons have no place in the 21st century. We use grassroots power and cutting edge policy to mobilize communities across the globe to get us to zero.

I am reaching out to you today because Global Zero is recruiting top young activists across the country for our year-long activist fellowship, Action Corps, and seeking applications from students at University of Oregon. The Action Corps announcement s linked here 

Action Corps leaders are at the forefront of the fight to eliminate nuclear weapons: spearheading the campaign in their city or campus, directing outreach in their communities, and leading as the face of a vision for a world without nukes. Leaders are mentored by Global Zero staff and world-renowned visionaries like General James Cartwright and William Perry as they learn about international policy, work with local and national media, lobby elected officials, gain leadership and campaign skills, and build their own Global Zero chapter to organize against the nuclear threat.

The first course was the Healing Children through Creativity Workshop and the second was the Healing Trauma through Creativity Workshop. An honor to work with an amazing group of people dedicated to helping children and adults in Bulgaria. Check out the pictures above and below for a peek at some of our creative processes.
