I asked Carolyn some questions about Our Next 4 Years.....
1. What is ON4Y and how did it come to be?
Our Next 4 Years is an all volunteer organization of almost 300 animation professionals. We are partnering with progressive organizations in order to create animated PSA’s that can counter the regressive policies of the current administration. Our group’s members include Oscar, Emmy, Annie and Humanitas award winners and nominees from studios big and small.
Following the election, producer / director, Mike Blum of Pipsqueak Films, reached out to me and broached a grand idea. Mike was motivated to action after reading a fervent Facebook post by his animation supervisor, Ramiro Olmos. Ramiro wanted to lend his animation skills to help support progressive causes and create change. Mike has tremendous creative & organizational skills and a good dose of chutzpah to make that happen.
