Re: looking for info about making and submiting a 2d animation film

You can still get MonkeyJam.

You should also check out OpenToonz.

Ultimately, though, it comes down to how you prefer to work.

Animation desks are quite expensive, so what I bought instead is the following:
http://www.amazon.com/Huion-Lightpad-Ul … 00DQL1RTS/

And I affixed an acme pegbar to the Huion lightpad with the plastic surgery glue--worked GREAT.  I ended up getting two sizes of the Huion and I also have a pegbar glued to an Alvin Cutting mat:

The small Huion is good for 10f paper, the large one could handle 16f just barely.

I also picked up a Mustek A3 1200s, which is the cheapest A3 scanner you can buy, and it has a little spot where I've affixed a pegbar for cleaner scanning.
