It’s Nice That caught up with our Director Niki Lindroth von Bahr and our Studio Manager Natalie Busuttil to talk about women in animation as part of their takeover for International Women’s Day 2018.
“Why is there a lack of women in animation, and what can we do about it?
Where are all the women? It’s a question that comes up time and time again in conversation with animators and animation studios alike. According to advocacy group Women in Animation, 60% of animation students in the US and Europe are women, but the drop off rate as they move into industry is staggering, with only 20%–40% of professional roles held by women. But why exactly is there a lack of females in animation, and more constructively, what is the industry doing about it?”
