Everyday Hulk: in the bathroom. An animated short by David Stodolny. (NSFW)

By day, Stodolny is a senior character animator for Dreamworks Animation. In addition to producing animated parody shorts like this one for Harry Potter (warning: animated gore), he was also partly responsible for two videos documenting how he and his coworkers blow off steam: Footage Loose, and the even more surreal Push It.

I should probably do more angry 80s dance montages when work is annoying me.

"Footage Loose" is making me really glad I left the animation industry.

I like how everyone points out the extra toilet roll on the counter... as if the animator who drew the whole scene had no idea it was there.

Why would you leave the animation industry? Are you an astronaut now?

I was admiring the animator's restraint in allowing the viewer to notice it or not.

Plus, I like that the roll will still be sitting there, untouched, when Bruce recovers and returns.

I for one was scared when he turned around and shows the world his bare bottom.

Hahaaaaaaaa man....

How to even answer that.

Let's just say there's a reason the campuses for studios like Dreamworks are so nice.

They never want you to leave.

I have a friend who's a storyboard artist there, and sometimes it seems like the studio has swallowed her whole for months at a time.

(Although they're better off than us folks out in NYC -- no unions and terrible animator/job ratio mean we're lucky to even HAVE work, let alone regular work, let alone work that pays on time, let alone work that pays well, let alone any kind of benefits.)

Prompting another HULK SMASH moment, no doubt.

> Why would you leave the animation industry? Are you an astronaut now?

Flash 5. All the gigs I was getting were Flash based, and the UI changes in 5 made it hell - what I used to be able to do in two quick clicks now took four, plus a half-second wait during which any clicks would just be thrown away.

There were other factors - realizing that the chances of me being involved in a project that really spoke to me were virtually nil, unless I clawed my way up the heap to director; severe depression related to my gender issues; it becoming increasingly clear that I'm not the kind of person who can grind on the incredible amout of work required to do even mediocre animation; being dispirited after pretty much everyone at the little studio I was working with got gigs at WB TV, failed to clue me in about those openings, and actively discouraged me from applying once I heard about this - but struggling for days to do a couplets simple scenes that I could have knocked out in a few hours apiece if the tool I'd mastered over the past year wasn't suddenly fighting me every step of the way was the last nail in the coffin for my childhood dream of being an animator.

I still sort of miss the magic sometimes.
