Derek's Recollections:

Simply put the whole animation period I went through was a great educational experience. I learned how to format. I learned how to write. I learned how to do character arcs, story arcs, how to do things in three acts with an epilogue.

The animation experience from a technical point of view was fantastic. From a monetary and a career path. It was a disaster.
