"You never forget the feeling of making your first Flip Book" reads the banner. I found the ad presently running on animation centric blog Cartoon Brew, a top-notch site that attracts professionals in the industry and fans alike.
Anyone who’s been on Pixar’s Jobs page knows that the studio is constantly hiring new talent. But does this ad signal more? Although Disney/Pixar marketing is known for creating flashy web ads to promote their films, personally, I haven’t seen the studio advertise their jobs like this in the past.
Could the banner be in response to heavier workloads that are surely coming up at the studio? I think that might be the case considering Brave and Monters, Inc. 2 will be released in the same year: 2012. Pixar Canada is also gearing up to produce Cars and Toy Story shorts very soon. Over thinking it, maybe?
