Supporting the Anime Industry

Back in my Wonder Egg review I wondered how I could directly support animators working in an exploitative industry, and I was feeling despairing of things changing…

And so today I’d like to share a couple of links that allowed me to help at least a little.

One is a bit of an overview of things you can do to help, and the other is a specific, ongoing crowdfunding campaign.

Here’s the first:

And it was from that link and its range of ideas that I came across the 2020 Animator Dormitory Project.

It looks pretty great and I’ve donated, hoping I can make a bit of a difference that way. (I would have liked to support the union mentioned in the first article but I couldn’t figure it out).

But for the Dormitory Project, if you’re interested in reading more you can check it out below:

And there’s a video explaining a bit about it here:
