    I am seeking work as a produciton manager for animation. I have worked in the field for 18 years at such studios as DIsney, IDT, Starz, Imagi and Digital Domain (most recently till it’s sad demise!)

    I would appreciate your consideration. I am a team worker, a caring and detail-oriented manager, with strengths in team building, mentoring to success and coaching. I have worked in Canada for two years prior and loved it.
    Unfortunately, the URL for mailing my resume does not seem to be currently valid. Is there an optional one? Thanks.

    Thank you for your time.

    • Hi David.
      I’m not sure what’s up with the url in the post, but I’d just contact Guru directly. Look them up online, they must have contact info on their site.
      Best of luck!
