About Me

My name is Lorena Hueso and I have been working in the animation business for the last four years and indirectly involved for 15 years. During this time I have been able to make friends and contacts in the field that have helped me to gain knowledge of the growing animation industry.

This web site intends to cover a wide range of animation and/or computer generated films paying special attention to the work done in Europe as I identified a lack of coverage on this area.

It is no secret that the United States dominates the world’s film industry but growing technologies and talent are making possible for different studios to take the chance of making animated movies that try to compete with them. Obviously there is a long way to be able to compete with the big studios with even bigger budgets but little by little “we” are getting there.

As I am based in Spain I have more information of the studios located in this country, however I will be delighted if my readers can give me information about growing studios in different countries.

This is a non profit website that pretends to provide news and links that can be helpful to 3D professionals and artists in general.

Do not hesitate to contact me at: to send me your comments about this website.

I hope professionals of the industry find this website useful.

Don't I get to reprint an image without permission under the "fair use" doctrine?

While "fair use" is a somewhat nebulous term — and subject to interpretation — it refers to the things you can do with an image without permission. In general, it may be considered fair use if you are reproducing a work for the purposes of criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research.
Note, however, that if you reprint a work and if the copyright is called into question, the burden will fall on you to prove that you "believed and had reasonable grounds for believing that [your] use of the copyrighted work was a fair use," according to the U.S. Copyright Office.
The U.S. Copyright Office notes that the factors that help determine whether use of a work constitutes fair use include:
·                       The purpose of the work, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes.
·                       The nature of the copyrighted work.
·                       The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole.
·                       The effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
