i want the kind of funding that scientists in comic books have. where are you getting this money? do you publish papers or do you just turn people into giant lizards and call it a day? do you have to get that shit peer reviewed? who is paying for your research? can you give me their email address
i have googled ‘evil science grants’ and the results were not satisfying
The thing that sucks about mental illness is that if you aren’t depressed enough, suicidal enough, bad enough, nobody cares. Nobody cares until you reach their standard, and that standard is when your problem is bad enough to effect them
The amount of people who can relate to this makes me equally incredibly sad and immensely angry
Upon second viewing, I have definitely concluded that Guardians of the Galaxy is even better when you imagine it as a tabletop campaign with an increasingly frustrated DM who’s sick of being interrupted.
So it’s now official : Studio Ghibli is stopping production of animated feature films, according to producer Toshio Suzuki on MBS channel, But it’s not the end of Studio Ghibli. According to my informations, they will keep a small staff for Hayao Miyazaki projects. And also the “Momonoma” department, which is Yoshiyuki Momose staff for production of commercials, music videos … Momonoma artists are already freelance, and this is the reality : most of Studio Ghibli staff today are employees, with long term contracts. Studio Ghibli can’t pay this staff if there’s no more Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata (expensive but profitable) movies on the way. Ghibli cost too much today, so they’re just stopping the current system. Before Porco Rosso, Studio Ghibli staff was freelance. They’re coming back to this previous system. It’s a restart, like Hoshino and Suzuki said. Now they will focus on licensing, and Ghibli Museum. And wait for new viable projects.
So let’s wait & see.
Note : French magazines Le Monde and Liberation already talked about this information many months ago.
Makes me wonder what will be the outcome of all this, especially on different animation studios.
