I feel that as an artist I very much fit into the global competition. While most people would not consider computer animators to be an outsourced job, there is a great deal of competition with a great deal of talented animators in China and Japan, and the popularity of Anime (which isn't really my cup of tea) seems to be a fairly large threat in my job security. Also, with the ever-changing technology, the globalization of the world will cause my computer-based career to be ever-changing and expanding. Therefore, I feel that as an animator I will face the effects of globalization as much as anyone.
