Good grief, look at the time. Yes, it is 5:30 in the morning. I've been up all night working. Sometimes there'll be jobs where the deadline is incredibly pressing and you have no choice but to work like a dog to get that one particular scene done. Ah, the glamorous life of an animation director. Are you sure you kids want to get into this line of work? If you do, then expect nights like this. It's almost second-nature to me now. Especially when it comes to broadcast animation, as the deadlines tend to be even more pressing than say, agency or commercial jobs. Broadcast is pretty much a quick-turnaround business. These deadlines can work for you sometimes, as the client is not so willing to make any last-minute changes. Well, not as many changes anyway.
Oh well, I've got to get back to it. I've got to get this scene done to pass off to my inker later on this morning. Fun!
