The Pixar gate in Emeryville, as seen from inside the studio grounds
The Waterloo Region Record reports on one of the latest additions to Pixar's roster of world-class artists and animators.
Jamie Metzger of Waterloo, ON (about an hour and a half from Toronto) will begin work at Pixar early next month. Metzger graduated in April from the animation program at Sheridan College.
"Eight years of school, about $53,000 in tuition, 56 teachers, and no social life, and it all equals Pixar," she says of her path to the studio. But she adds that it will be worth it.
"I'm on cloud nine. I think I'm still in shock. It won't hit me until I walk into the office and see my heroes and start thinking of them as peers."
