: Walt Disney opens three studios outside the US (Vancouver , Toronto , France), creates and trains for hundreds of jobs .
: Kills studios before they are allowed to prove anything.
: Warners creates Digital studio, 50 or sixty jobs. Kills studio before it can do anything.
: Warners creates feature animation studio. President says in order to bring down wages will train novices and hire right out of school.With absolute intention of flooding market on purpose. Opens studio in London with hopes of minmalizing LA (it fails of course but that isn't the point). It destroys the London commercial market and closes many studios. Then it fails.
: Don Bluth hires tons of people from outside the US. Crags them to Arizona to isolate them. Closes studio dumping hundreds on the open market.
: Lasseter hires away Brad Bird. Now tell me, who was the only directorial threat to Disney ?
hey you forgot DreamWorks.....promises....promises...promises and then, sorry you don't fit in with our business plan, they laid-off many an artist while middle management continues to expand...and do what exactly.
and Eldorado will not be the box office gold they hoped...the craft continues to shine....but it was lousy storytelling, plain and simply...
