I wanted to make a short about my visit to Frederator's office in New York. I had the honor of meeting its founder, Fred Seibert.
It was an amazing opportunity that I would'nt have ever guessed in a million years of being able to do. But Frederator truly loves us and Fred was kind enough to meet and talk to me for a half hour.
If you are an animator and you simply must join a network (for any of the various reasons), I would highly suggest the Channel Frederator Network. You get more exposure, you can say you are part of Frederator (what I call the best independent animation studio in the world), and the kicker is you retain all creative control over your work.
Now, networks aren't for everyone, and if you can make it on your own great! But for me, the CFN is perfect!
