"The key, as Dave Brewster has said, is in the
director. Directors who are overly finicky can
kill animators and deadlines alike."

I partially agree with Dave Brewster. Over-picky is one thing, but if you have a show that has a great story and great characters, and everyone feels invested in it, things tend to go more smoothly. Of course, being "invested" in a project means keeping it around. I've worked in TV both here and in Taiwan--and know full well people tend to care less when things are shipped out with little control at the other end. And being at the other end, it sucks getting half-baked model packets, storyboards, and layouts--only to be critized later for the crappy work done overseas. (BTW--chances are if the story is great, and there's a limited budget, resources, and schedule--chances are they'll be more willing to be "less finicky" because great full animation is a luxury--but it's not needed to tell a great story). But, Dave Brewster is a most amazing animator.
