Good news, but you should have posted a wemb/mp4 or at least an invidio.us link.

>>1060081

Because too many people who get get animation jobs usually get them due to personal connections, artistic ability be damned. Also, most companies funding animation want it to be as cheap as possible, and it is reflected in the final product.

Another factor seems to be that thanks to Simpsons, Family Guy, Southpark adult cartoons are expected to have bad animation.

>>1060108

Genndy is capable of doing that very well, but I am not sure if Adult Swim would allow too much of it.

I don't think it's nepotism as animators have always networked, I think it's ideology. A lot of them LGBT types who want to create good propaganda instead of good animation. As a result, you end up seeing a lot of shitcoms with bright/saturated color schemes with a fixation of simplicity/cuteness. If you point this out to them, then they all collectively defend it and blacklist new ones that criticize it.

Genndy Tartakovsky looks like he has a simple art style, but he's always doing something inventive with it because he's a legit good artist, director, and animator who's disconnected from the influences that modern animators have.

I don't really get what you are saying here. In "Scape from Galaluna" there's a sword fight scene clearly influenced by his work on clone wars.

I see what you are saying, visual storytelling and action scenes are his strongest point. To be honest recently I'm looking for cartoons focused on fluid animation and cool aesthetics instead of "serious writing" so I'm glad a cartoon like this one is airing this year.

I know you pretty much already mentioned it, but I'm really sick of "Well written" cartoons who don't know shit about the feels but only the mechanics of writing just because they want to have a good page in tvtropes.

Right? I mean, if I were looking for something well written then I would read a book. I watch cartoons because I look for good animation, writting is important, but if the show fails on the first point then It has used the medium wrong.

>if I were looking for something well written then I would read a book.

Don't shit on books, I've felt a lot more feels from books than "well written" cartoons, but you're right on the animation bit.

Books cause feels because you imagine the motion and the events described so you are getting them as best as they're gonna get for you.

I mention this because I'm complaining about the cartoon's writing, not their importance related to animation.

By all means Korra is a beautifully animated show and if you ignore The Last Airbender is more than a competently written show, but after season 1 the writing is so mechanic I could not pretend to give a shit about the series, either character or plot.

Over the Garden Wall besides some vignettes is a show with simple animation and the writing is not particularly complex, technically, emotionally though I was actually stressed when The Beast takes Greg.

This. "Good writing" is important because the story is the core of the piece. It gives meaning to otherwise worthless spectacle. This is one reason why splatter-on-canvas paintings are so empty compared to works of the past.

He could need to rescue members of his tribe from another tribe that's lead by a dark shaman or something like that, that could be season 1.

But quite honestly if it's just him fighting for survival in a prehistoric wilderness each episode I'll still watch it.

Fighting for hunter-gatherers to live life in peace against some militant agriculturalists led by a shaman using plant psychedelics and illusions to keep the slave army afraid and in line? Then they team up in season 2 with some pastoralists to liberate the numerous but sickly grain-fed slave society.

The Calarts clique won't allow those who aren't politically like-minded as them, or draw better than them to be in their industry. They'd sooner kill the industry than let their huge student loan for animation go to waste. You're going to have to wait another generation for the next gen of animators to overthrow this nu-guard.
