ABOUT WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS
Where are your offices?
Our office is located in Los Angeles County in the city of Burbank. We are about ten miles north of downtown nestled in an entertainment valley of movie studios, television productions, and related industry companies. We live in Fantasia's sorcerer's hat across the street from the original animation studio where many of our films were made.
How can I submit an idea?
We rely primarily on our directors for story ideas and only accept external creative ideas through agent representation.
It is the long-standing policy of The Walt Disney Company (including its subsidiary and affiliated companies) not to accept, but rather to reject the submission of ideas without prior authorized invitation. The word “ideas” in this context includes all creative suggestions, artwork, designs, theme park attraction concepts, game proposals, scripts, treatments, manuscripts, and songs, in whatever form, from whatever source, and however communicated.
How can I connect with a Disney representative for an informal interview, school book reports, career counseling or general advice?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide informal interviews because we are working on our next films. However, in the future, we will be posting our outreach schedule and you will be able to connect with us there.
What commercial software applications do you use?
CG Packages: Autodesk Maya, Houdini
Paint Programs: Adobe Photoshop, Zbrush, Deep Paint 3D, Corel Painter
Compositing/Rendering Programs: Combustion, Shake, Boujou, Renderman, Mental Ray
