>>123789361>Is it really that hard of a battle to fight for when negotiating with the executives, producers, etc.?
Yes, yes it is.
Most faggots on /co/ don't understand just how tough getting a project successfully drafted, pitched, produced, put together, coordinated, written, storyboarded, recorded, mixed, rehashed, animated, cleaned up, and released actually is. There is "input" from multiple affiliates at every one of those points, which slows down the process even more. Plus, if you somehow get through all of that, there's always the looming chance that executives will make the decision to just shelve your completed project until further notice just because they felt like it; and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it, because they own the rights to it.
Making an animated series is not an easy task, and stupidly well-animated, hand-drawn rubberhose fluid details in shows like Superjail! and Tuca & Bertie are a painstaking endeavor in themselves.
