Many creative people have dreamed of becoming a successful artist in today's society, but they fear the cumbersome process and associated possibilities of rejection. Their creativity and passion is never actualized because of the illusions of the barriers to entry.

Believe it or not, animation has been around since the dawn of man, yet it wasn't revolutionized with the pioneers that followed World War II. Animated cartoons became big business and attracted many fans. However, many of these enthusiastic viewers had dreams of to make cartoons of their own, but they were limited to doodles in sketchbooks. Today does not seem much different with so many creative artists out there that don't know where to turn.

Even with the technological advancements of today, it may seem only the multi-million dollar companies at the forefront of the animation industry could effectively make cartoons or produce and publish animated cartoon films. The general public has seen movies such as Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Megamind, and popular cartoons such as South Park, The Simpsons, or Family Guy, and never fathomed the possibility to produce quality, amateur animated films and cartoons themselves. It certainly eluded them that to make cartoons and publish them to millions of potential viewers and monetizing their graphic motion picture or short animated clip was a possibility.

As a handful of amateur artists and software developers began to collaborate in the early days to make this dream possible, many years went by without the public catching on, and the dream to make cartoons or hopes of producing animated movies seemed it would remain but a dream.

The fact that creating cartoons and animated movies was now feasible for nearly everyone who carries their imagination proudly began to attract those who lacked the money and years of experience, yet wielded passion and creativity. The realization of the ease with which one could publish their short animation film series to the entire world brought an entirely new level of incentive. Being able to make cartoons and monetize their creations and start to make a living doing what they love justified it to be and invaluable endeavor.
