Glory

 
If you aren't giving kids nightmares, you aren't doing it right. (Source)

Well, this section is a little more uplifting. How great would it be to go catch the latest CGI masterpiece in theaters and be able to look up and see your work on the big screen? Or to listen as the animated villain appears and the little kids in the audience gasp and shriek? If your job was to create a scary, sinister octopus-lady, then those sudden gasps from the audience could be the ultimate affirmation that you've done your job well.

Well-done animation brings joy and happiness to legions of movie, TV, and video game fans. There's certainly cause to feel glory if you're able to make life a little more fun for others.
