Background

The parent organization of 2dornot2d is the Animaticus Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, education and evolution of traditional 2D animation. The foundation acts to allow survival of 2D animation through education and high level production, and through allowing future animators opportunities to study and gain experience through apprenticeships to established master animators.
