"However, there is no doubt that a competent executive would never have let the project progress this far without a tight script and then a good board (which DEPENDS on a tight script). As ever, artists will suffer for executive incompetence."
Not true, necessarily. It DOES NOT necessarily depend on a "tight script." Did "Lion King" have a tight script? Did "Toy Story?" or "Prince of Egypt?" NO. They had strong ideas, and a strong director--with a vision. The script was written mostly in the boards. Oh, there were writers, and I don't mean to downplay their contributions, but a "strong" script has never saved storyboards. Being a visual medium, it's the norm that the film is realized THRU the visuals.
