Wasn't this the big debate months ago ? Didn't html Bob keep on that this wasn't the case ? Insist it wasn't ? Over and over ? I seem to remember someone saying " It had to be a deal that Nelvana created and handed to PBS for validation and a future market. They make no money from that end of the deal." But , all that has been deleted, hasn't it.
And as to your questions about financing, it was a Canadian credit that was supposed to draw productions to Canada (as it apparently did with live action). Not to allow them to ship them out work. Every time a film crew comes to Canada it invests millions in the local economy. This of course is not the case here. Nelvana has perverted it's original intent. Governments tend to rubber stamp things so it is not like anyone knows. .
: I would like to address a point brought up by a freeagent from Atom Films, I didn't catch her name. She said , and I caught parts of what she said, there was a lil' melodrama in the back...anywho,what I heard was that the studios facilitating the production aspects for KCET were doing "free programing" , Kcet was not funding these productions,the private companies would fund production and the way the studios made money off this was by taken a percentage of the licencing agreements for the particular property, please feel free to correct me on any of the "maticulisities" I might of missed...So what we're dealing with, it sounds to me, is the same ol' monkey boys, it seems that KCET is a weapon of great distraction. And as far as Canada's Money is concerned, its kinda weird that a country that has a market big enough to support its own original programming would invest in another country's broadcasting system, does anyone know why?
