Jim Hill and Noell
Evans Join dFX Writing Team
Beginning April 16, 2001, Hill will pen a new column for dFX (www.digitalmediafx.com) titled "Back to the Drawing Board with Jim Hill." The column will give readers a unique look into the animation industry.
"I look forward to doing stories about any and all aspects of the animation business," says Hill. "These days, show me a major Hollywood release that doesn't make some use of animation or CGI. Like it or not, animation is mainstream now. It's a tool of the trade that few in the entertainment industry really understand or appreciate. My goal is to try and create stories that give Digital Media FX readers better insight about all the hard work and behind-the-scenes wrangling that goes into creating this often-overlooked art form."
Hill's columns will appear on the 2nd and 16th of each month. However, subscribers to the free Digital Media FX Animation Newsletter will receive access to the columns a day before they are published at Digital Media FX.
Noell Evans, a freelance print and online magazine writer, has also joined the dFX writing team as a regular feature writer. Evans has already written three features for dFX, including a tribute to William Hanna of Hanna-Barbera who passed away on March 22 of this year. Evans regular features will appear at the beginning of every month.
"Animation is one of the constants of entertainment, says Evans. "It could be argued, in fact, that the first moving images were animations. Digital Media FX is a great place for me to write about animation, from these early roots to today's digital pioneers. In particular, I enjoy looking at the founders and key players in this medium's growth."
