Sheridan College was one of the only other schools teaching animation back in the 70s and 80s but Sheridan's yearly tuition was less than $900 bucks (until the provincial Harris government cut back on subsidies in the early 90s). Now there's a thousand "schools" that'll take your parent's money.

Women now comprise 71% of CalArts Animation students

They would all be about the right age to have watched Sailor Moon when it aired on Cartoon Network in the 90s.

Want to really explode your brain? Pixar also hides references to future films in their releases....

I love this kind of stuff like Hichcock's cameos, John Landis's "See You Next Wednesday" or Lucas' 1138.

Also the "0451" code in Deus Ex games, Bio Shock games, Gone Home and Dishonored. Probably more.

CalArts is expensive as all hell, but they have people from the industry come in and recruit promising future graduates, so it could be worse... But it helps to be mad talented in high school, like Alex Hirsch of Gravity Falls, if you want to be accepted.

Alex Hirsch was accepted. He also got to work with Weird Al on his projects there, before going on to hire him for voicing "The Probabilitor" last season.

Just goes to show that if you have talent, pay a lot of money for your education, and hit the Disney jackpot, you too can find a way to pay off those enormous student loans!

Stanley Kubrick and CRM 114.
Kevin Smith and 37.
