By Aladdin we had really out grown our warehouse space at 1420 Flower St. and had spread out over the 5 square block industrial park taking over many different buildings. We affectionately named our locations “The Hart Bldg”, “The Royce Bldg”, “AirWay”, “1420″ and “1520″. Computer Animation, CAPS Ink and Paint, Compositing, Scanning and Scene Planning stayed behind in 1420 while the rest of the animation departments and various productions moved into these other buildings in the industrial park and the streets connecting the buildings became our hallways.
Scenes of hand drawn animation that were ready to be scanned got wrapped up in chipboard bound with rubberbands and transferred back and forth via courier’s on bicycles who repeatedly got tickets from Glendale Police Department for some such violation as they hurried back and forth.
