Problems Making Animated Vintage Cartoons ....."it ain't easy" !


Making vintage cartoons can be a labor of love, but it can also come with a lot of unseen issues among staff. While this type of animation requires a lot of creativity, diligence, and skill, the process of actually creating these cartoons is often very difficult. First of all, the cost of production can be astronomical. With vintage cartoons, everything has to be done by hand, from sketching the characters to hand-
painting the backgrounds. This takes a tremendous amount of time and money, and it’s not uncommon for production costs to reach six figures or more. As a result, smaller animation shops may be unable to afford the process. Also, the process of animating vintage cartoons is extremely time consuming. It can take weeks or even months for the entire process – from conception to completion – to be finished. This can lead to long hours and intense stress for staff members, which can lead to tension and other issues among them. Finally, without proper coordination and organization, staff members may not end up feeling very connected with the project. With vintage cartoons, there is often less collaboration between all the participants in the animation process. For example, while one staff member might be responsible for creating the background images, another might be in charge of character designs. Without proper communication and direction, it's easy for staff to feel disconnected and unappreciated. These issues can be particularly devastating when working on vintage cartoons since the process takes so much time and effort. Fortunately, these problems can be avoided if staff members work together and communicate effectively. A little patience and understanding can go a long way in making sure that everyone is happy with the final product.
