lol the season I worked on, coming out in October.
Now for some of my own history.
I really put up with a lot of crap so I could work on this show.
Long story short, Top Draw payed me below minimum wage and used an
"extended training" as an excuse to get work out of me. Then, they fired me
with no warning for asking for proper compensation and calling it "disrupting
the positive atmosphere of our company." Mind you, the only person I ever
made my grievances known to was the prod-manager/corporate bootlicker. I
never made a scene in spite of all they did, because I really wanted to work on
this show. I really liked animating it, i's something I was passionate about, but I
couldn't ignore the wrongs they were doing either.
So Ifyou if you are or have worked at Top Draw or care about the animation
industry, especially here in the Philippines, pis let everyone know of this
abhorrent practice so we can hopefully improve things and demand better.
They got rid of me easily because I was alone, but as a collective, perhaps you
could collectively bargain for better. We shouldn't let this slide.
