Turns out that many people involved in the international distribution of animated entertainment for television secretly harbor the same opinion of American animation executives.
: I guess we're not alone.
Absolutely not. In fact the really good execs know these people are there as well. Trouble is it is like Doctors. If you cannot get a bad doctor out because the good ones fear being witch hunted as well. That is why I think instead of attacking the bad ones we kneed to point out the good ones. That is what anger does.
Here are just two of the many I know of that are great. Don Hahn / Disney and Sandy Rabins / DWs. We are all so into attacking I think we make this an issue of us vs them. It is easy to see why execs fear trying to move weak execs off (or two other jobs they can do better) when they could be next in the gun sight. I for one would like to see the energy turned from anger to constructive critisizm . Even as a motivating force anger blinds those who use it too generally. It alienates the people who could do the most good. People in power who could help. There must be another way where there is no terror on either side.
