: I know this sounds simplistic but to me it is the only answer. Refuse. Say "I'm not going to have that crap on my resume". "I wont take the blame for that". "Why should I make up by doing twice the work to keep these cheap studios viable"? I need to know what it is that keeps directors from doing this. Are they going to send the directing up there ? I don't think so. If so, why even direct it here? Why create the false illusion of it being an LA project ? I'm confused as to the politics.
I'm confused about the politics, too, but then I'm not in LA.
I think the point we're trying to make is, it CAN be made more cheaply if we eliminate administrative waste, not lowering animators' wages.
And in a capitalist system, businesses always have not only the right but the obligation to make as much profit as they can. And profits don't only come from increased sales - they come from decreased costs. A penny saved really IS a penny earned. That's just the way it is. So if I want 10 bucks for my services, and you are willing and able to do the same thing for 5 bucks ... where's the choice? It's a free country. Frankly, right now, I need the work.
