Disney Animation Launches First-ever Online Artistic Submission Portal for Animation Community

Burbank, Calif. - Disney Animation (DA) is connecting talent to animation opportunities with the first-ever online artistic submission portal.

At www.DisneyMouseLink.com, artists can submit their demo reels and/or portfolios through a secure Web-based upload system. DisneyMouseLink.com was developed in-house and allows interested applicants to submit their resumes, demo reels, and/or portfolios. This portal is an industry first that will allow greater connectivity to the artistic community.
To access DisneyMouseLink.com, interested applicants can go to www.DisneyMouseLink.com and create an account using a valid email address. A required submission form is then downloaded, signed, and returned to DA. Upon receipt, a username and password is provided via email. Work history, skill sets, and software application precedes the upload window. Currently, the upload system accepts .jpg, .pdf, and .mov file formats.
"Creating DisneyMouseLink.com is a great service for everyone," says Dawn Rivera-Ernster, Director of Animation Resources for DA. "It allows artists to submit reels and portfolios whenever it is convenient for them 24/7 with a quick and convenient process. For DA, it allows us immediate access to the incredible global talent pool."
