Rentrak announces the reasons animation keeps booming.
1) G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
2) Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
3) Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
4) Tinker Bell And The Lost Treasure
5) The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3
6) The Proposal
7) Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
8) Aliens in the Attic
10) Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Complete Season One
So do the counting. Pure toonage occupies the 2nd, 4th, 7th and 10th positions. The semi-animated Transformers sits at #3, and there's dollops of animation sprinkled atop a couple of the others.
If you have the right skill sets, the odds are relatively high that you won't lack gainful employment.
