I feel bad for Lauren, her Netflix series she was making just got cancelled. I'm pretty sure this is her second cancelled project in a row.
>>37518842good. she deserves it for turning her back on fim. fucking coward.
>>37518848>PostAh, right. Autists don't have a sense of empathy.
Aside from the retarded glass ceiling messiah bullshit, I genuinely feel bad for her. Imagine havine some McBingewatching corporation for mindless drooling retards cut off your funding over night and still think they can just pick it back up later. I truly hope that if Netflix does "return to this series in the future" Lauren is working on something else. Even if she's not I hope she tells them to shove their offer up their ass.Still retarded that she's coping about feminism and acting like that's a long term win for "the next [girl] in line". I don't know how you can see you getting raped by a corporation as a win for someone else.
>>37518848Take your meds, faggot
>>37518848She "turned her back" on FiM because Hasbro kept messing with it. Would you continue to work on your passion project if some asshole in charge kept ruining everything? I sure wouldn't.
>>37518901>I don't know how you can see you getting raped by a corporation as a win for someone else.It's a mutt thing.
>>37518915I don't think that's the right mentality. I imagine she had other offers (Sony Medusa?) at the time. It doesn't make sense to abandon the helm of a hugely popular, multimillion dollar show because the people with the money have some forced changes. McCarthy absolutely succeeded with A Canterlot Wedding despite the lore rape Hasbro forced in. We need people with passion who are able to make due with concessions to get good products.
>>37518848>breaking news: blatant newfag doesn't know anything, has strong opinions about it anywayFuck smartphones, fuck The Fappening, and fuck r/the_donald.All of you are shitters.
>>37518842She probably got into a fight with the ones in charges, she never was the most collaborative after all.
Look like meghanCHADS win again with centaur world
^not gonna quote your post numbernot even worth the (You)
>>37518842At this point I believe this is just a conspiracy to not let the next FiM happen.If it happens, everyone will see that the current woke mainstream is a steaming pile of shit.
>966nice bait :)
>>37518987More like nice fact because it's already have confirmed two more seasons and a movie
>37518989nice post! keep it up bro!
>>37518842I wonder if it's because traditional European inspired shows are being watched less and less due to decline of interest over time. Maybe this has something to do with it, I highly doubt it's because she's a woman especially considering todays cultural climate lmao.
>>37518995it's because whites are no longer a majority, subhumans only care about shows that are PC.
>>37518842Maybe it's because lauren found out an eqg lover managed to get hired oh her witch show
Netflix don't want anything complex, they want something simple and Faust probably just goes really "2deep4u" and not childish enough this time.
>>37518976Could you imagine making a first show that’s so popular, that it sends your whole career downhill from there?
>>37518951The same type of faggots shitted on Pencils because he DIDN'T quit drawing licensed MLP comics. They contradict their own fucking narrative.
>>37519007such is the cost of bringing the gift of horse pussy into the world
>>37518842Fuck this gay earth, I was really looking forwards to this. Depending on who owns what rights, Lauren should take her pitch and rework it as a children's book or a comic or something if Netflix won't actually produce it.
>nobody sees that this is a good thingwokeflix would just destroy it anyways
>>37519022She's already woke now so that would not be really different anyway
>>37518948my guess is that fim was more personal than any other show and that could factor in.also the show would have gotten raped no matter what so better to have a clean consciousness.the moment fim got popular and hasbro started seeing dollars they took over and started running their retarded "reasearches" to maximize profits, disgusting
>>37518842What exactly happened? What's up with glass ceiling self-harm talk? What Arielle Kaplan has to do with it?
>>37519031"A glass ceiling is a metaphor used to represent an invisible barrier that prevents a given demographic from rising beyond a certain level in a hierarchy. The metaphor was first coined by feminists in reference to barriers in the careers of high-achieving women."I gotta be honest that shit was a little bit uncalled for, i think there are a lot of women with big positions working on the industry but hey, i feel like that was more of a coping mechanism to think positively. I can't get mad at mom for habing beliefs
>>37518842I hate those "omg so edgy and moody" tweets, like just fucking explain what's going on instead of spouting a bunch of nonsense
>>37519041Why is she "excited" and "feeling like super-villain" if the show was cancelled on her? What did she do?
>>37519042>just fucking explain what's going on instead of spouting a bunch of nonsenseNDA contracts make this an impossibility, they have to vent in a vague manner so they don't face legal repercussions.
What if Hasbro was the culprit?
>>37519041>I gotta be honest that shit was a little bit uncalled for, i think there are a lot of women with big positions working on the industry but hey, i feel like that was more of a coping mechanism to think positively. I can't get mad at mom for habing beliefsYeah, to be honest even if I hate her for ruining MLP Meghan would be the best example for this, she actually got what she wanted but I guess that Lauren just don't want to make the sacrifices needed to reach to that position Meghan literally sold her soul after all
>>37519047Well she is a nerd dude and she can talk weird sometimes, its twitter dude. She is just joking about being angry, she is taking it rather well (at least on her twitter)i have no idea as of why the show got cancelled
>>37519056I disagree, she is an already acomplished person on her field, has a loving family and is among good company. If the interviews are anything to go by she does what she does mostly for the love of it, in my opinion she already sacrificed enough when making FiM and stuff, you can't really know everything about her just by googling online. The show also looked comfy and imo would have been a better one than his husband craig is making for netflix (i liked that one too but its a lil bit more bland imo)
>>37518842FUCK. I was looking forward to that. It's my favorite aesthetic and one of my favorite settings. DAMNIT ALL TO HECK!
>>37519079>is among good companyShe can't say the same when she's among us.
>>37518842Shame, it sounded interesting. How the fuck does she keep losing her own shows?>>37519056>I guess that Lauren just don't want to make the sacrifices needed to reach to that position, Meghan literally sold her soul after allNominative determinism blown the fuck out?
>>37518842Fucking fuckshit fuck damn it fuck. I wanted to watch her show.
>>37519127She only need to collaborate more with netflix but I guess that she rather to get nothing instead of follow some orders. Already happened with Medusa and now with this.At this point who have the real fault? The one that would rather to let her project die or the one that follow some orders?To be honest there's no winner in this scenario
>>37518842Looks lgbt enough. Why would Netflix do this with the amount of money they get?
>>37519151I'm guessing this has something to do with the pandemic hitting every company hard.
>>37519095Based Lauren implies that women shouldn't work at all.
>>37519151>Looks lgbt enough. Why would Netflix do this with the amount of money they get?Because there's already another lgbt enough cartoon about "witches". I know this sound stupid but at the same time we're talking about netflix
>>37519161A woman's place is in the kitchen, raising the family while the man is away at work.
>>37519168This is objectively correct. But the corporations want more cheap labor, that's why now the typical US family lives worse than in 50s with both parents working.
Maybe Lauren is here, reading this thread…Maybe she even posted…
>aborted before release>abandoned after one seasonthere's no winning
>>37519206>Maybe she even posted…It's always fun to imagine celebrities posting "controversial" threads about themselves here. Perhaps they just had a Debbie Downer day, and they need some pick-me-ups from a bunch of anonymous strangers telling them off.
Didn't people praise Lauren for being an epic classic feminist compared to that evil modern feminist, for that shitty Equal Fights PPG episode?
>>37519216Lauren isn't the same person she was 10 years ago. Ruined by twitter.
>>37519219It's littearly the same thing, fuck off
>>37518987No you’d be surprised. I’m in multiple artist discord’s (yeah yeah inb4 tranny) and they suck the shit out of centaurworlds ass. Tastes and standards are dead. Cartoon watching adults will bingewatch anything and then insist that they enjoyed it.>>37518989That is fucking pathetic.
>>37518842Shieeet it looked nice, fucking circumcision fans did it again
>>37518842It's like the woman who made Harry Potter, she never had much success with anything else afterword
>>37519265Yeah, the main difference is that harry potter woman actually created such franchise and give her more power over it, unlike Faust that just polished another company franchise.
>>37519167Gosh I hate this new tranny CalArts style already.
>>37519277Maybe she's angry because her husband just look like this.This man alone just look always tired, not important and specially pathetic and even with that look he handled to create more thing that her. That alone it's unfair for her and the unique way to cope it's these kind of tweet.
>>37519168Well witches are known for brooms and cauldrons. I dunno why feminists love witch shit so much when all they do is carry cleaning tools and cook all day.>get back in the kitchenReeee>get back to your cauldron and cook me up a sandwich potionYes sir master sir
>>37519299Shows like Bewitched were created because witches are interesting to the creature known as the woman.
>>37519293She says she makes 80% of what she does but he looks like he works 20% more than her
>>37519317I mean, it shouldn't be a surprise that if your projects are regularly cancelled/not prolonged then you will be underpaid. It has nothing to do with the vulva.
>>37518842I bet mom's swung by recently
>>37519364>2008Really, what the fuck happened? Did that barren womb killed all his motivations
>>37519368the industry suck the soul and youth right out of them
>>37519374Dude, he was working for industries since 1993 and he still looked fine until he got married with faust. So I guess that barren womb literally kill his motivation
>>37519275Go back before you start getting subscribed to paper spam mails.
>>37519167Owl House was literally cancelled recently.
>>37519398The solely existence it's enough because it's already a competence with that disney+ stream service. Why someone would go for the netflix witches when they can go for the disney one? Also Netflix already have their own witches in they service and didn't got their absurd expectations
>>37519420Oh yeah... that anime happened. I literally forgot that existed
>>37519384>>37519368what is this meme about her not having any kids? she does have one and no it's not adopted
>>37519413>everyponyhi nonny, enjoy your stay here. never leave, no matter what other nonnies say
>>37519447Dude, 1 kid after multiple failed attemp. This is him now(reverse search it), so I believe that face it's come more for the lack of success getting a child.
>>37518842Disappointing. Poor mom.
>mom threadPlease somebody post the castaway pasta
>>37518842At this point it's just becoming pathetic. Can't she follow orders even once?
>>37519559>can't she be a corporate sellout even once?
>>37519568That's... What she's getting money for.If she created her own animation studio she could be her own boss.
>>37519577Her refusing to play ball with the suits is incredibly based. It's sad that the prospect of artistic integrity confuses and frightens you.
>>37519583Your boss pays you. Of course they get to say what you have to do. Don't like it? Get your own money to make animation.
>>37519583Then why she's still trying to work for someone else? Why she would continue playing the game that she hate so much?
Man, that sounds like it would have been neat as fuck.I'd have tried it.
>get pay to do something >don't do it >get fired or just quit WTF GUY, SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO STAY!!!
>>37519593Hang on a second. What's the narrative now? Is it the scary nosemen trying to destroy capitalism, or are you trying to destroy capitalism yourself?
>>37519711Haven't you grasped the concept of nihilism? "Everything is bad, every side is bad, but I don't have the solution LOL"
>>37519586what is this mentality
>>37518842they probably realized it was too similar to Owl House
>>37518842Maybe Crunchyroll would be willing to pick it up?
>>37519586Unironically be silent, jew
Snowponies are Lauren Faust approved
>>37519420>>37518842Don't really know what to say. Kiki's been available there for over a year now>>37519793how about Ghibli>>37519095She talks that femshit on Twitter but when the series comes out it's just a bunch of political 'whatever' like Super Hero Girls.
>>37519841someone will try to prove this tweet wrong.posing 3D puppets and using shader and physics engines is soulless and always will be.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-koZBg0iOrw
>>37519859Purely in theory 3D can have as much soul as claymation or doll stop-motion animation. In practice it won't, because asset reuse, animation reuse, shortcut-ing and skimping on certain details for sake of reducing $$$, missing model clipping, model floating 1cm off the ground, etc, etc. Greed prevents it from having soul.
>>37519398Fucking goodThat shit was pure cancer
>>37519880This. It costs as much as 2D if you make look as good as 2D, possibly more. Nobody will shell out for that, cut the corners and make it look like shit, audiences don't really care.
>>37519737It's called a job contract.
>>37518842Damn I generally fell sorry for Lauren, I mean she left DC Super Hero Girls to work on her dream project only for it to slip out of hands once again. Hopefully she'll get a chance to make something special one day!
>>37519424to Equestria? can I go with him?
>>37519841Based>>37519095CringeThe duality of /mom/
>>37519424>Too embarrassed to show own power level even anonymously
>>37518995It's possible, given that Netflix will have a lot of data on what's being watched, and (anecdotally) there does seem to be a lot more anime/inspired offerings on there lately. But then this is what I've never liked about internet shopping/viewing; it's all about the Holy Algorithm, you only see or are shown what you've already seen or have searched for - the days of something catching your eye on the shelf/"can't be arsed going to bed yet, I'll watch whatever's on" haven't quite died but it certainly feels less likely.
>>37519737The mentality of people who actually decide to work with other people, you are getting funded to do a job your expected to play by their rules after all. You can't just do whatever you want and get paid, it's what happens when you decide to shack up with a company; if you want 100% creative freedom then you either make your own company, start a Patreon/Kickstarter, or do Youtube. If Wakfu can go with Kickstarter as they're source of funding then so can everyone who wants full creative freedom and the funding to support a large project.
>>37520074>in the end, you always have to suck someone's dick to get income or you'll end up on the streetsrent/property tax was a mistake
>>37520077No, the mistake is trying to get funding to run a project but then getting upset when they take said funding away since your views didn't align with theirs. It's like handing someone $20 and your approval as a reference and then they start supporting Nazi/racist(or whatever thing would be hated by the majority of normal people), of course you'd take away your money and name from being associated with that person. Letting them do it would tarnish your name; Yes, this is a radical example but you get the main point.
>>37520055I'm deliberately choosing to believe it's just one retarded autist bringing up americans on this board all the time and not that there's more than one of you this rent free
>>37520087Considering the shrinking population of this board, that's not a terrible bet.
>>37520087There's a large number of dedicated autists if you pay attention and probably some members of psy-op groups too. Not actual organized professionals--more like lonely and angry people inducted into obscure internet cults.Can't give you a definitive list, but there's definitely at least one that likes to complain about America frequently.
>tfw cant feel too bad for Faust because of how insufferable her fans get here
>>37518842GODDAMMITI saw when these tweets came out and knew it was gonna be something awful. Really hoped it wasnt this though, I was SO looking forward to that so much.
>>37520077Rent is not a mistake, just as any other service or goods on the market.The problem is ALWAYS that someone breaks the rules of the market, and the usual culprits are the government and the corporations. USA is 99% corpocracy at this point, the remaining 1% is the Constitution.
>>37520163>The problem is ALWAYS that someone breaks the rules of the marketWhat exactly does that have to do with rent? elaborate.
>>37520171It's extremely simple:FED has cheats for endless money, this is breaking the rules of the market (effectively they are robbing everyone by devaluation of USD). Then they are transferring these money not even for government matters, but straight into the pocket of corporations like Blacrock. Then this company buys every property in sight, artificially increasing the demand.Then there are ridiculously high building standards (introduced by the government) that don't allow building companies to satisfy this demand by classic commieblocks.So, the government created the problem and it will generously solve it for you:You will own nothing and you will be happy. Living in a pod, eating bugs, you know the drill.
>Falseflagging cucks have already constructed the whole scenario in their own headLol, wageslaves gonna wageslave. That's why Faust is a successful creator who actually worked with people on successful shows, and (((you))) are a loser who blindly does what you're told.
>>37520191>You will own nothing and you will be happy.I'd sooner kill myself than live that way. Owning a flat in hell would be preferable to living in the pod.
>>37520191Oh, and if the standards still allow you to build your commieblock the government can just not allow you to build just because.The land is all theirs, you know.
>communism>government just takes what it wants and forces you to work>(((democracy)))>taxes are supposed to pay for public utilities>government workers are corrupt and pocket most of the money for themselves>nothing gets done
>>37520216Democracy is not the issue here. Corruption is. No system is immune to corruption.
>>37519841Hoes mad (x64)
>>37520227Corruption arises from agency problems, where one person is supposed to represent someone else's interests instead of their own. The incentive is always to find ways to make your own personal interests look like the other guy's.That's why you just shoot anyone who wants to be in charge.
>>37520227>Democracy is not the issue here.I have bad news for you.
>>37520233Well, as it was said: (representative) democracy is the shittiest form of government if you don't count every other that was tried.It's obvious that it should be replaced with something that was not tried before, and the current candidates aren't really looking good.
>>37518901Pretty much this.It also annoys me to no end that the people who complain about the glass ceiling are usually those who have already risen above it. This is one of the reasons why Lauren Faust was my idol. Yes, Past Tense. The toxology report is still out but people like her bitching that some man ( in this case her husband ) make more money for doing the same work comes down to bartering skills and agreeableness, but the glass ceiling is going to end up taking all the blame because its easier to blame anything but yourself while using BUZZWORDS.Also it is not just me that is getting 2015 Medusa vibes on this, right?( ends up spending 15 minutes trying to figure out why and making it into a collage, )At least we ended up with the Emoji movie.

>>37522184Imagine bringing your personal politics to the workplace so much that not even Netflix can bear to have you around.
>>37522165>IT'S DA JUUUUUUUUIIIIICCCEEE!!!!
>>37518901Thing is, this shit happens to creators of every stripe, not just Lauren and not just women. I agree it's bullshit, but I can't help but roll my eyes when the runners of these shows imply it was done because of their gender or whatever. I feel like people are sold a lie when they go into animation or writing for shows, namely that eventually you'll be able to pitch and write your own show. That is the exception, however, and not the norm.Also, let's not kid ourselves here, the main human character in >>37518842 looks like trash. It looks like a slightly more feminine Sheldon from My Life As a Teenage Robot. Also the concept sounds kind of generic, meaning it'd have to get by on character interactions more than anything (lore, action, etc).
I'm getting the very real feeling she is impossible to work with. Some people are really good at building world but lack the flexibility to work with a team once they establish them. The studio always gets the blame when they axe the showrunner (muh executive meddling, amirite?) and the team always acts like 'it's tough but we'll pull through' but they're secretly relieved.
>>37519583Lauren likely despises VivziePop for doing what she refuses to do, and succeeding at it.
>>37522220The problem for me is that this wasn't just some series in development but was something already approved by Netflix that had multiple episodes written and storyboarded. By cutting the funding Netflix essentially not only put all that work to waste but also made a bunch of artists working on this unemployed.
>>37522233>I'm getting the very real feeling she is impossible to work with. Some people are really good at building world but lack the flexibility to work with a team once they establish them.Lucas
>>37522243Netflix also lost money by doing so. There has to be a reason why they'd flush the time and money down the toilet, but LF has enough professional sense not outright talk about it.
Wasn't this the project where she literally put something about muh diversity cast?
>>37520242Does anyone have Faust’s tweet from a few months ago (now deleted, I believe) telling about an unnamed project she was on where a studio exec asked why they were doing a project with a female lead in the first place.According to Faust, she told the exec off good, becoming a hero to the female staffers.Then a few weeks later, the project was cancelled and they all lost their jobs.
>>37522267Play stupid games...
>>37522267Sounds like some nice bullshit you just pulled out of your ass.
>>37522245He's not even good at that. Consider that the prequels have Jedi wearing robes as part of their uniform. Why? Because Obi-Wan did in the OT. But Obi-Wan wore a robe in the OT because he was living in a cave on a desert planet, where that kind of thing keeps the sand off you, and where he was hiding out from the Empire that had killed all the Jedi, so he didn't want to look like one. Why the fuck would he and Yoda both go around dressed as Jedi when they were supposed to be hiding?>>37522267>a studio exec asked why they were doing a project with a female lead in the first place.TV execs are usually stupid assholes. When the Dirty Pair first aired in Japan, the TV execs demanded a male protagonist be inserted because they thought nobody would watch a show with two female leads and no male ones. Then the show aired, ratings skyrocketed, and letters poured in asking why this dipshit male character was hanging around when he wasn't in the light novels. They got to drop the lame-ass male character, and shows with female leads exploded all across anime. The US didn't catch up to the notion until the 90s.
>>37519841>Real actors are living, breathing, feeling HUMANS, it's a magic animation can never achieve
>>37522314Nerds only like watching shows with females because they get off to it. Feminists cringe at that because then they feel objectified.
>>37522314>Why the fuck would he and Yoda both go around dressed as Jedi when they were supposed to be hiding?You can blame the EU for that too. Extremely unimaginative writers. Luke's outfit in RotJ is also designed by Lucas, why does everyone who makes this connection forget that?
>>37518842Sadly I think the problem might actually be her, allegedly she's pretty hard to work with at times and unwilling to compromise with anyone
>>37522335Luke's outfit in RoTJ is worn on Tattooine, where it makes sense again. Also Luke is a lone Jedi who was never formally trained at an academy or anything, and may not have had access to whatever costume would have been traditionally worn by Jedi in a universe where this shit makes a lick of sense. And Lucas said he wasn't considering the EU when making the prequels, so it was an opportunity to fix something stupid. Instead, he piled on even more stupid, like toddlers who can barely walk training with light sabers that could cut them in half, wearing star pilot helmets with the blast shield down, and defending against drones like the one Obi Wan happened to scrounge up for his impromptu lesson for Luke on the Millenium Falcon.>>37522325I would disagree, I don't want to fuck Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but her show was great.
>>37519095Lauren realizes that 90%+ of Craig's "job" is collecting PPG/Foster's/Wander Over Yonder royalties, right?
>>37522387CN owns PPG and he probably doesn't own the rights to those other shows either.
>>37522391Yes, CN and Disney own the rights but he still gets royalties.
>>37522395Source on that?
>>37522395>>37522398It's beside the point anyway, she was talking about salaries, not royalties. I bet you the fags who created Teen Titans Go were paid a higher salary than the chick who created Summer Camp Island.
>>37522398It's not unusual for creators to get at least a small percent in royalties as part of a contract, but I don't know how Disney or CN negotiate specifically.
>It's the glass ceiling! I broke it for you! You're welcome!Bitch please. We just gonna ignore She-Ra, Esteban Universo, The Owl House, and whatever other female-led shows that've been running long before she was kicked out now?I'd wouldn't be surprised if she was dropped because someone figured out that she can't be trusted to actually run a show without quitting before it even gets going. She's two for two on flaking out on her shows early.
>>37522204Imagine getting dropped from Netflix because you demanded too MUCH equality shit.
>>37522418she clearly doesn't actually care to work with companies, which is understandable but makes it confusing that she continues to pitch her ideas to them.is it stockholme syndrome or something?she really needs to just self-publish already.
>>37522418I still think it might be sex-related. It's pretty clear that she acts boisterous and opinionated behind the scenes, like any strong-willed creator would, and gets shit for it because she is a woman. I'm about 90% sure she adopted Craig's "burn all bridges and threaten until I get what I want" method of dealing with management, it just doesn't work because of sexism.
>>37522314>and shows with female leads exploded all across animean absolute tragedy
>>37522425Nah, these were the 80s anime shows, with laser fights and big stompy robots. They were awesome. Shitty high school romance anime's dominance was twenty years away.
>>37522422I think she assumed that at some point, especially after FiM, companies would go "Yeah, she's obnoxious dealing with us but she's a genius." Which to be fair, I don't think is that unreasonable. For fuck's sakes she turned a dead franchise into one of the most successful reboots ever, let the woman be arrogant.
>>37522430>Shitty high school romance anime's dominancethose normally have male leads, though
>>37522431>For fuck's sakes she turned a dead franchise into one of the most successful reboots ever, let the woman be arrogant.Yeah, I think if a guy had done that he would be given a lot more leeway than she seems to be getting. They give way more slack to that dude who runs the Dragon Prince.
>>37522245But was George hard to work with? Granted I haven't read any coworker stories/reports so I have no idea. I have to agree with >>37522233 though. This kind of thing has happened to Faust so often it's kind of alarming, and suggests that perhaps she's not a good person to work with. Maybe it's new, maybe she wasn't like this before, but it seems like she is now. She has a storied history of leaving shows after a year or two now. The more this happens, the more "executive meddling" sounds like a convenient scapegoat to hide the fact people don't want to work with you for long. Also I imagine if you tried calling her out, you'd probably get blacklisted from the industry.I dunno, I think modern politics has fried her brain, and turned her into an overly cynical person. Not unlike modern 4chan I guess.
>>37522423So she's a cunt without the clout to back it.>>37522431She left before MLP even hit its peak.She's a proven idea girl, but also an awful showrunner who can't commit.
>>37522431Yeah, that makes a bit of sense but there's very little incentive for her to work with companies at this rate. She and Craig seem to be financially stable, so what's stopping her from going all in on a passion project where no company can dictate what she does? I really hope she learns from all this and takes initiative.
>>37519031>glass ceilingIs what women call the fact that to reach very high in most company hierarchy you need to lick the upper echelons' asses for 10 years like your life was depending on it ... which is something pretty much no women is willing to do - sleeping once or twice to immediately get a small promotion: yes, groveling and yes-manning for ages to people you hate to get the really juicy jobs: no.Females refuse to put that much effort in the first place, so they blame the fact that none of them raise about that step on misogyny and named it "the glass ceiling", because they think the level above is just within reach since they can see it, and refuse to acknowledge *no one* get there without giving up their life, soul and pride.
God I wanna put my tongue inside Laurens asshole and taste her last meal
>>37522267I think it was the son of an executive? I vaguely remember the tweet, (I think she was replying to someone else talking about being let go from a project?) but it does seem to have been deleted since (or at least I just can't find it). I can only remember some bits of it, like how she gave a rousing speech about how girls need role models or something like that and that the next day or so after she patronized (?) the son (or whoever) she was let go from the project. I honestly wish I could find it.
>>37522431>For fuck's sakes she turned a dead franchise into one of the most successful reboots ever, let the woman be arrogant.Correction: she, and HER TEAM, did that. Not Faust by herself, Faust with her team. People on this board seriously downplay how integral the rest of her team was, and have this notion like Faust did everything. She was integral yes, but hardly the only important part of that machine. Faust is like a nice car engine. But a car engine alone isn't enough to drive a car, you need the rest of the damn car to do that. We can only speculate why this engine hasn't been able to find a good car for 10 years now.Also, people VASTLY underestimate the importance of timing. If FiM came out today there's no way it would've retained its popularity for as long as it has now.
>>37519216Lauren up to FiM =/= Lauren a few years after leaving FiM and not finding success anymoreShe switched from second wave feminism to fourth wave in the span of 10 years.
>>37522267>hire someone for a project>they shit on youare you saying you wouldn't also fire them on the spot? many people on this board are deranged and think bad writers deserve to be lined up and shot, just because they made a bad episode on a fucking tv show, so don't deny it.
>>37519206I don't think she would post on this board, not after 2016, Larson for some miracle decided to come here last year but I think Mom is a different case, still, it's cool to think that she still lurks here, and put up with all the bullshit associated with this board and this kazakhistani tractor forum just to talk about ponies not as an authority, but as another nameless, faceless faggot like (you) and me
>>37522461>what's stopping her from going all in on a passion project where no company can dictate what she does?If she goes all-in and fails, she'll have no one to blame but herself. Given her track record with the actual writing of characters, there's a very real possibility people wouldn't like what she produced. She's got amazing ideas, she historically bad at the nitty-gritty details and interactions.
>>37522267I definitely remember that, but I don't know if I have that cap though.>>37522525>hire someone for a project>you shit on them>they shit on you back>rather than gain respect for them standing up to you, you fire themsounds like he has some personal problems to work through
>>37519583>>37519568>Her refusing to play ball with the suits is incredibly basedYes.>It's sad that the prospect of artistic integrity confuses and frightens you.No.There is a fine line between fighting for what matter and being a screeching autist that pull a tantrum as soon as something isn't exactly what they wanted.Don't be a Yak. There is a reason they were a joke.
>>37519880>because asset reuse, animation reuseBruh.G4 was turned from an adventure show to mostly slice of life so they could do exactly that.The M6 all got simplified to having all the same body type so they could do exactly that.
>>37522265Yep.Which tell a lot about how a big of a problem the pre-production must have had if Netflix cancelled something that was 100% in line with their own values.
>>37522453>But was George hard to work with?By numerous accounts, yes. You can watch behind-the-scenes video of Lucas making the prequels, and see everybody walking on eggshells, laughing at his lame jokes and generally nodding and agreeing with every idiotic thing that comes out of his mouth like they're scared of him.>>37522495You mean the team she handpicked?
>>37522576>You mean the team she handpicked?Yes, that was my point. That by herself, she's not that great. But when combined with the right people, she (and her team) can make magic happen. But I'm starting to think that in addition to FiM being lightning in a bottle, maybe Faust's team was too.
>>37522431> For fuck's sakes she turned a dead franchise into one of the most successful reboots everNo./b/ did.Without the trolls spreading ponyshit literally everywhere and making it an internet-wide meme it would have stayed some obscure /co/-approved "girly but still worth watching, we swear" cartoon.And the resulting massive popularity was with a segment (us) cartoon show investors aren't interested in. Or at least not interested to try reaching indirectly with little-girls-intended cartoons.I'm not saying Lauren did nothing great at all, but from the PoV of a studio wanting to reach the little girl audience G4 was really nothing spectacular - and definitively not worth dealing with a ... troublesome ... show runner.Dunno, maybe she should try making projects targeted at young adult males, maybe then what she achieved with G4 would actually be taken seriously into account.
>>37522378Luke's jedi outfit is a black jumpsuit, thats what I'm trying to say. He wore a cloak only at the very beginning.
>>37522623The lightning in a bottle was a lightning in a bottle.
>>37522623>>37522628Also Faust isn't the only one to do this.Remember Transformers was dead once and Beast Wars turned it around, by and large the same way (Hasbro kept it's hands off, was run by two showrunners who loved the original show) MLP was. It was uncanny watching how the two of them were so similar, even with Hasbro sticking its hands in again around 2-3 season mark (Season 3 of BW, which was it's last with the original crew and we got that godawful Beast Machines).The difference is, the BW showrunners didn't quit, they finished their contract and Hasbro decided to pair up with Fox after that. MLP Lauren either walked or was asked nicely to exit, and I think a big part of it was empty promises about making Galaxy Girls (remember she was pushing that shit hard?) if MLP was doing well, only for Hasbro to be happy with Ponies and not want to try anything new.
>>37522536welcome to the real world. when you have power, why not use it?
>>37522536>rather than gain respect for them standing up to you, you fire themThose who want respect, give respect.I don't know how the exchange went, but if he only asked because he was genuinely curious (abet, it'll sound ignorant) and she mistook a teachable moment for 'muh patriarchy', maybe she needs to take a step back and look at who the fuck hurt her so damned bad and direct the anger that way.Not every question is loaded, some people are just sheltered, rich, and dumb.
>>37522536>rather than gain respect for them standing up to youYou're unemployed aren't you.
>>37522739>defending someone who had to abuse his "power" to hide his small dick energy>>37522765This is true, we don't know how the whole conversation went down. She also might have just assumed he meant it in a flippant and smug way because of past experiences. I mean>why they were doing a project with a female lead in the first placeseems like it would be pretty rude on its face unless you think into it. But then again, it's coming from how Faust herself interpreted it and it might not have came out that way.>>37522793actually I just accepted a job offer today, feels good man
>>37522803>>why they were doing a project with a female lead in the first place>seems like it would be pretty rude on its face unless you think into it. But then again, it's coming from how Faust herself interpreted it and it might not have came out that way.I think that's the big issue.She heard what she wanted to hear. Was he rude and obnoxious about it? I wasn't there, I couldn't tell you. But would it have killed her to be a little less abrasive in her reply, considering how long she's worked in this business and knows how fragile and chestpuffy studio execs are? >inb4 victim blamingThe only victims are the people who don't have rich successful husbands who are now jobless and can't afford to float from project to project starting feminist revolutions at the first sign of trouble. Imagine swallowing your pride for 30 seconds for the good of your entire team rather than only seeing yourself as the center of the universe?
>>37522816>don't tell people how you feel, just kiss ass!
>>37522821More like "It's not what you say, it's how you say it" and "My actions have consequences that affect more people than myself"But sure, be incredibly dense.
>>37522803>small dick energyTwo things, first, post tits or gtfoSecond, "abuse power" sounds like an overreach like nothing else. My guess is she insulted a Netflix suit publicly in front of a bunch of other people, and it really doesn't matter which way you look at it, being rude is still being rude, doesn't matter if its up, down, or across a corporate ladder. Getting fired for being rude? Why is that a surprise? Go insult your boss and not apologize, hell, go insult the janitor and see what happens.
>>37522823Faust looks really self-important in the OP image so she may very well have exaggerated an exchange where she blew up at a guy over a standard benign request asking for a male character to be added or something.
>>37522821This is a kiss-ass industry, and until someone makes a non-kiss-ass studio that churns out enough success stories and stands on its own feet, kiss-ass is necessary. You kiss ass and suck dick till you get to the top. It's how all corporate shit works. Entertainment even more so.Kickstarter exists, you want to not kiss ass? Go do what Vivienne Madrano does. Make an IP and ask for money from the masses.
>>37522835>go insult the janitor and see what happens.ngl I wish more people got fired for shitting on the blue collar people. Especially the woke feminist HR types who treat them the absolute worst.
>>37522628Lauren is integral to ponys success because it could not have existed in order to reach minds. On the other hand /b/ existing or not was not integral to pony's success because good shows that are beloved will spread by other means no matter your medium of exchange. The people on /b/ who liked pony for the content of pony would have still liked it independent of finding it on /b/.
>>37522821fuck off, Lauren
>>37522860It's a real feel when you have more in common with the janitor, the maintenance head, or the stock room manager, than pretty much all your other office coworkers. It's a fucking feeling.Be nice to them.
>>37522878Its a whole generation of people being told by their teachers to read or they'll end up picking up garbage for a living. Meanwhile, the garbage man makes 3x what the teacher makes, and if trash pickup went on strike, you'd noticed a lot quicker than if teachers did.
>>37522861>/b/ was not integralIt absolutely was. If /b/ hadn't spread pony like it did, you'd just get another Littlest Pet Shop or some shit like that. It was a TV show designed to sell toys, the fan content is what brought it a step higher. Otherwise you get /co/ show #1488 and maybe Twilight gets to join the ranks of the FotMs. Maybe at best it'd have turned out like Gravity Falls did as far as popularity goes - 2, maybe 3 seasons, a bunch of deviantart stuff, and then dead once the deviantart crowd moves on to the next big thing, an occasional thread here and there on /co/ about a long-dead show. What /b/ did was introduce it to a much wider audience of autists who still can't let pony go. That's the difference between a lot of /co/ material and MLP.Here's a flipside - without Lauren the concept wouldn't have existed, but once she did the worldbuilding and got Season 1 of FiM in motion, she was no longer integral. How about that one?
>>37522908>without muh faustquit wasting air and kill yourself retard
>>37518842Maybe Faust can recycle this character for Them’s Fightin’ Herds.
>>37522894>Trash accumulates quickly. On February 5, The New York Times lamented that the city looked like “a vast slum as mounds of refuse grow higher and strong winds whirl the filth through the streets.” By that point there were about 30,000 tons of trash on the streets, a number that would grow to 100,000 tons.There's a reason no one teaches about the Great Garbage Strike of 1968 in New York City. Sanitation people are 1000% more critical than any office jobber like me could ever be.
>>37522914>didn't readYeah, yeah, tldrkys blah blah blah. Point is Faust's job was to get the train moving. No Faust, FiM never exists. Once FiM exists, she isn't necessary anymore. Without /b/ there's no FiM getting as big as it did/was/still is. Short enough?
>>37519841Based Lauren indirectly shitting on sfm artists.
>>37522948nothing about sfm is art.
>>37522955This.SFM always brings the worst, like anthro futashit or disgusting fetishes in general.
>>37522894>>37522921Reminds me of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvdIaLHYUws. It's a nice little story/animation about sanitation workers.
>>37522991That was sweet, thank you for sharing.
I have a fantasy that Lauren Faust and I are on a plane together and it crashes. We both end up on a deserted island, just us two. Lauren, being a sheltered autist, knows nothing of how to survive, while my hours lurking in 4chan threads has taught me how to make fires and live somewhat off the land. We'd spend years together on this island. She would come to rely on me for survival. Eventually, she'd fall for me and we'd make passionate love for hours on end. After a few years of fucking each other, some debris would wash ashore allowing us to finish the construction of a raft, a la Castaway.During the voyage home, Lauren and I would get separated, but we'd both make it home. Her, picked up by a luxury cruise, me by a commercial grade fishing boat. We'd both think that the other had died. I would make it home a month or so later, while she was taken home immediately, being Lauren Faust washed up on a cruise.Upon returning home, I turn on the television and see her on Letterman doing an interview about her time on the island. I watch the whole thing from beginning to end, and at no point am I mentioned. She's trying to tell everyone that she survived alone for half a decade. Enraged, I take my savings and go on a trip to America. I find my way past Lauren's security and break into her room while she's alone.Standing behind her, I cock my gun to get her attention. I ask her how she could so such a thing and she begins deeply sobbing. Barely able to talk through the enormous gasps for air, she begs for her life. At this point, we fuck. The greatest fuck we've ever had. The most passionate, beautiful fuck that ever fucked. Then, after I come a few times, I ask to hotdog her ass. Then, while I'm doing that one last time, I grab a vase off a nearby table and cave her fucking skull in.
>>37522965there's quite a few good pony sfm animators, but yeah
>>37523031Well that had me on the edge of my seat.
>>37522212It very literally is.
>>37522425That's the kind of opinion that gets a Fireball up your ass, anon.
>>37523031I am Lauren Faust and I have been aroused reading this.
>>37519586t. wageslaveSome dickhead got a bunch of money 200 years ago and that's why people with actual talent need to kiss their ass.
>>37523251More like in the 1930's, or in the 50's, or in the 1990's.
>>37523251Except this isn't true anymore. See >>37522238Like or hate Hasbin/Hellova, it proved you can make anything you want
>>37523285If Lauren wanted to make her own show she should take that 20% she feels Craig doesn't deserve and actually hire people and make it.Except that's a lot of effort/time/money and it's easier to act like you accomplished something by getting 100 coworkers fired.
I remember seeing the moment Lauren was forced onto Twitter happen live at a conLauren didn't join Twitter, Tara pretty much set everything up for her
>>37523296>20% she feels Craig doesn't deserveyou're wildly misinterpreting that statement. she feels she deserves more pay, not that craig deserves less.
>>37523423Wildly misinterpreting shit is what this thread is all about.
>>37522320real actors are fucking annoying and autistic method actors are based though
>>37523522this is her eqg self-insert character. canonically, after the end of the last eqg content, fausthulk goes on a rampage and kills every character in the world of eqg. not a single child is spared. military organizations are helpless to stop her rampage. when no life remains on the planet, she lies down and closes her eyes, satisfied that her work is done, and slips into a deep sleep, only to awaken when her creation is disturbed once more.
>>37518842>muh glass ceilingImagine crying sexism every time you don’t get what you want.>>37518848Here’s your (You), now fuck off.
mom needs to unleash mares
>>37523641Chestfluff is for furfags who belong in the >>>/trash/. Change my mind.Here we have real, actual footage of a snowpity and all you can think of is "mUh FuR".
>>37523031I already seen this in the last thread. Also that one had Lauren porn in it.
>>37522267Found it in the archive.
that "glass ceiling" shit was edgy as hell
>>37523995calm down faggot, I don't like chestfluff much either, no need to go on a rant
>>37523995Furfaggots and forced memes are both cancerous. Furfags perhaps slightly more so, but there's certainly room for debate.
>>37523423I'm making a point that Lauren very easily could make a pilot episode for a show and use the youtube metrics as evidence of interest. But she won't do that, because complaining is easier.
>>37522267>>37524088I really feel bad for the other ones that were into that project. Faust can handle get all the project she want cancelled, she already have a name but the other ones that probably got their first chance with this project totally got ruined by her and who know if they got another opportunity to shine if the one that cancelled the project actually blacklisted to everyone that he fired of the project. Only people with a name can get away if they got inside on a blacklist but not the pawns.
>>37524620While I doubt the people under Lauren are getting blacklisted, they did lose steady income/work thanks to her wanting to grandstand. She'll never think twice about it either, and likely will do it again.
>>37524088Thanks, I couldn't find it
>>37518842Lol, get rekt ugly leftist bitch
>>37524620>blaming Lauren instead of the suit who was probably there through Jewish nepotism and went crying to their uncle to get her kicked out for telling him he was retarded, which in all likelihood he wasAnyone on /mlp/ should be well aware what incompetent, petty fucks studio execs are by this point.>but she should just have kept quiet and done what she was told to keep her jobYou want more shit media? That's how you get it. That's how we got late FiM.
>>37524659Tell that to the people that lose their job while Faust can still get all the money that she want thank to her career. She is a walking timebomb for anyone involved in her project
>>37523031This is art.
>>37518842Just retire Faust, nobody likes you, you are poison
>>37524639Shut up rightoid
>>37524659>Anyone on /mlp/ should be well aware what incompetent, petty fucks studio execs are by this point.Lauren should be more aware of it and put her teams well being before her popcorn fart feminist moment. Lauren isn't marching in the streets for women's biological rights or against the texas shit or setting up shelters for battered wives, she's making a fucking cartoon.
>>37524666If any of them would rather suck corporate dick than stand up for creating good media, they deserve to be fired. One Haber is enough.
>>37524630In the entertainment industry (and the game industry), it's very important to have "shipped" products under your belt. It looks really bad if you've been in the industry for years, but haven't shipped anything.
>>37524704Has she done anything since MLP without working under something else (Craig, or anyone really)? Was she part of She-Ra?
>>37518842this show sounds fucking sick nglthe feminist thot still has the touch.
>>37518842Fuck this gay earth. No one appreciates art anymore.>>37519398Well, nice to see at least some genuinely good news. Should take the other frog one too while they're at it. Disgusting soulless trash.
>>37522267>>37524088>>37524620>>37524630>>37524666I hate how everyone here only care about faggot that actually need to kneel. It's better to never have anything in you curriculum than have shit just to following your corpo boss.Lauren did the right move to save all these faggots to get tainted.
>>37521858Hey hey people, sseth here. Have (you) ever made a shitty comment about a (((certain group of people,))) that you immediately regretted, well today I'm here to tell you about the delete button.
>>37524659Just because studio execs are petty does not mean Lauren is not, herself, also petty. Also because we weren't there, we have no idea who's being unreasonable in this transaction. Could be the execs, could be Lauren, probably is both.>You want more shit media? That's how you get it. That's how we got late FiM.That's actually not how we got late FiM at all. We got late FiM, because the new people they brought in didn't even watch or care for the show. They actually had an incredible amount of freedom to do what they wanted, but they squandered it because most of them didn't care about the show at all.
>>37519041>I cant get mad at mom for fucking herself and then blaming all of men for her own fuck upthat's odd, anon. cause that sounds like a thing you'd definitely blame a man for.
>>37524719>Lauren did the right move>Tells off her boss>Show with girl character doesn't get created>Entire team of people fired>Lauren's boss (also female) didn't walk or anything, she fired Lauren>Executive will tell other executives not to work with Lauren>Millions of people now will be fed some other corporate garbage instead because Faust couldn't keep her pride in check or look more than 30 seconds into the future>Right move
>>37519167none of these faggots are wearing hats. but theyre definately more lgbt in a bad way.
>>37524741Keep sucking that corp dick good goy
>>37524706I think she was the head of DC Superhero Girls, but she left after a year I think. Not sure if she's been the head of anything since.
>>37519206I doubt she could actually handle our attitude towards feminism without eventually coming to realize it's full of shit. I wouldn't blame her if she kept larping as a feminist publically for money though.
>>37524741Fuck the whole corporate media system, it's rotten to the core. The best case scenario is that anyone with any talent just crowdfunds or forms independent studios.
>>37524734No it was 1 mental retard in charge of the scripts and everything which guided everyone to fail. The only thing that changed were the plots got more extravagant, but their execution was the same as the bad plots.I've seen plenty of liveaction tv shows at my time, but it's very rare for 8 seasons to be nothing but the same retarded jokes, ideas, dialogue, mentality, disgust for everything standardful and good. Even Gravity Falls, Star Vs and Adventure Time, Infinity Train, Centaurworld feel different between each other despite having an equal amount of autism.
>>37519095>>37519277why are these posts deleted? tjheres nothing off topic about them, We aren't twitter you god damn tranny janny hotpockets.
I miss old mom. She's now a bit more extremist Tara Strong reeeing over something regulary.
>>37524741The least thing a disgusting jew can do is allow good content to be created while they money launder to their hearts content, but the mentally retarded LEECHES feel the need to assert their disgusting tastes and dominance over everything and piss in the kitchen and eat where they piss instead of shutting the fuck up and being humble. Middle Eastern genes are incapable of being humble and submissive and knowing their goddamn place in the ecosystem, they are parasites who feel the need to gloat.At least Green Eggs & Ham while being a massive blatant money laundering scheme at least bothered putting some of that budget into good animation and writing.
>>37524752So 'suck dick (which in this case might have been as simple as being polite to your superior), show gets made, message gets sent out to millions of little girls and you can feel good about maybe giving them a strong female role model.Or you don't suck dick and it doesn't happen.I'm not in entertainment, I don't particularly give a shit, but the phrase 'pick your battles' comes to mind here and Faust seems to like fighting losing ones while patting herself on the back.Netflix made She-Ra, which is as feminist as you can get, and it's showrun by some enby whatever the hell. Faust didn't shatter any ceilings that hadn't already been shattered.
>>37519568she did though, thats why mlp is even a thing, she should have just made a pony adventures IP.
>>37524761Dude, haber literally didn't did anything, he just got the script and just approve it without even looking unlike. In other word, a lot of fucking liberty without consequence, the problem were the new writers, not the ones that only was in charge the opener and finale of every season.Just check how Larson managed the things and how much complained of the newfag writers not knowing anything, just check the leak and look the shitty episode in the guides were assigned for the newfags.The fault is in the newblood, not the faggot that just approve any script of a new episode without cheecking for mistakes
>>37519048BULLSHIT. I called out EA, Ubisoft and several game companies out and I still got hired at various other companies. They do not give a shit about what the other thinks of you. If you even yell a little and make a scene they remove you from their retarded blacklist, but they only keep a blacklist because testers are extremely expendable just like McDonalds employees.
>>37519723this is the most impossible thing for commie jews because they believe in their solution. They aren't just a different side to us, but in fact spiritually and narratively opposites. they think they fight for a side against another side that holds some form of solution or ideal. But instead they fight against people who have only seen how worthless the sides are and that ideals only exist to crush others. It's poetic when you think about it. The only ideal worth aspiring for ended up being friendship.

God, /pol/tards fucked up this site beyond repair
>>37520084faust I'm glad you realize that working with people means cucking to them, but the problem is that you are not understanding the difference between being the IP owner or not. The IP owner owns the thing that makes the money. it has nothing to do with deciding to get funding for a project. the person running the project in question can sit on the idea for eternity and rule the author away from using it. In your analogy it would be like the person who recieved the 20, had to not only give it back, but would be arrested if they ever paid someone with a 20 ever again.
>>37522560based tiny nigger saying faust.
>>37522443who runs dragon prince? is it hasbro? because I seriously have doubts it's hasbro. hasbro always does this shit. why do you think one of their long standing franchises grew so fucking dead?
>>37522469women have always been unwilling to pay the price of power.
>>37519216yes, but not because we like classic feminism, but because classic feminism doesn't subjugate creativity, meaning she, like any idiot savant, could still produce good content that is worth sharing.
Glad to see people waking up the fact Lauren isn't worth defending and that the cancelation of multiple projects and her departure from FiM was mostly due to her inability. I say this as a S1-3 Faustfag.
>>37524785No it was the producers and investors. They behaved as a clique and wanted to turn the show into their own fanfiction to piss where they eat. It isn't a thing about "getting one's money worth" because they're money laundering thieves, they're just natural delusional douchebags and sociopaths who love to parasite. They went through every script and edited it in their typical gypsy way. Vogel was another piece of shit executive that was at the helm. The weird thing about Vogel is that whenever he was credited for an episode he allowed the writers to somewhat do their job because the written scripts had to go directly through him and the retarded producers either would never see the scripts or they'd get a fistful of dick down their throats if they dared tamper with it because Vogel was the big boss there. Vogel was enough of a piece of shit to lead money launder The Movie while the CEO of Hasbro smiled at him.The voice director was also a massive piece of shit who couldn't direct worth a shit and just let Andrea Libman screech like an idiot whenever she wanted. Every guest voice actor did a good job with their roles because they'd just do their own thing or they'd ignore what the shitstain director would tell them because they were only there for 1 episode.

>>37524801sovl>crediting /m/didn't know that board actually did anything
>>37524858>They went through every script and edited it in their typical gypsy way.Dude, do you ever read the leak? we got all the fucking script and the modification that happened before getting released
>>37524870The leak were fake and a great smokescreen from the jew corp and you fall by this bait like the fucking good goy, use your fucking brain for once.
>>37524870The leak still didn't get the pre-production stuff released which matters a lot more. They do not let you write what you want and they will edit your script till it "fits with the guide"What you think all those "See Lesson Zero for Twilight's prime characterization" were there just as a simple guidance and it's the writers' fault for "following" them? nobody is that talented to follow a characterization that much to a tee. I've read plenty of fanfics where the idiots are incapable of getting a specific shade of personality correctly.It's the disgusting executives writing them.Larson himself pointed out how much his scripts got either discarded or edited into pure trash.
>>37522469>to reach very high in most company hierarchy you need to lick the upper echelons' asses for 10 years like your life was depending on it ... which is something pretty much no women is willing to doAnyone who's willing to do that, male or female, is a pathetic wagecuck. No-one has to do this any more in the age of the digital economy, especially not the creative industries where you can now go direct to your audience.
This thread is filled with schizos in both sides, I don't want to support anyone...
>>37524903That's what people get for not reading Goethe. He already knew centuries ago that you can't trust somone who's called Faust because that person is in league with the devil. And look where we are today.
>>37524898>you can now go direct to your audience.So why hasn't faust done this? It seems like all she does is chase execs then shit on them, then act surprised when they fire her.If big bad patriarchy is in the way of her visions, why not just make her own show?
>>37519095I just get the feeling that she's upset that she'll never get out from under Craig's shadow
>>37524990I don't know. You'd have to ask her, but I'd be all for that. I'm sure there would be plenty of people willing to throw money at her via crowdfunding if she wanted to.
>>37524992It likely doesn't help that Craig looks like that type of savant-artist who is mega successful and ultimately doesn't give a shit.
>>37518842If all her shows either end up canned or with her ousted from direction, she’s probably the common denominator in that problem, not whichever studio she’s working under.
>>37524898>No-one has to do this any more in the age of the digital economy, especially not the creative industries where you can now go direct to your audience.Which is why Faust needs to nut-up or shut-up. She's in a position most animators and storytellers only dream of. She has decades of industry experience, experience being the head/director of shows, and a large loyal fanbase. She could, if she wanted, easily crowdfund a passion project of hers. The only reason not to do it though, is because it might not make as much money as she wants it to, and if it falls-through, there's no one to blame but herself. It's much harder to make something yourself, than it is to complain about the stuff other people make.
>>37525153If it fails she'll blame men.
>>37524666>blaming everyone beneath the corporate overlords who continue to escape all criticismPretty satanic of you
All this thread and not one person said they watched to see Lauren's witches or more about the worldbuilding. The concepts are awfully cute. I'm disappointed in you /mlp/
>>37520084Come on mom, it's have been decade now, you should know how things works.The one with money are barely human.If you want to do something and be barely free, you need to do it from start to end (I don't count the very small chance of finding good people. Better not count on it, but if you manage to work with them, cherrish the opportunity).Just create your own studio already.It don't have to be big, just to work.

>>37518842SABRINA THE TEEN AGE WITCH
>>37524840It's a Netflix show. So the same company that just dropped Faust, and which anons are arguing about whether she should have been more submissive and "easy to work with." Meanwhile, everyone just accepts that the Dragon Prince involve working with a huge my-way-or-the-highway asshole who won't compromise his vision one bit. It seems kinda like "it's okay, but only if you're a man"
>>37525375Get back to your drink, Faust.
>>37524990Maybe she is taking down the industry
>>37524823The thing here is the IP either now belongs to Netflix or Faust is sitting on it sorta like the creator of KND who's still sorta trying to make G:KND. If Lauren signed up with Netflix she has likely actually signed a contract that then binds the IP to Netflix if they really was an agreement between them, it's the reason they can likely just put it on hold rather than risk her just taking it to an actual network, that's why it's that much worse for Faust to not just open up her on YT or use Kickstarter so that she always has full ownership and control over her creations. Unlike making a movie with a pre-made IP, she entirely owned the idea and had freedom to control it her way up until she signed with a company to fund it. If she truly cared about her whole freedoms for her show to write and put it in whatever direction she wanted she would never have been willing to honestly sign it up and take the risk of conforming to the Netflix standard rather than her own. To put it simply: She should have just either got her funding and team in a way where she would have full control over it without a larger group both taking the IP and being able to breath down her neck or she should have committed to pressing up against the bare line of not conforming to Netflix while not doing something that might cause them to hold or staight up take the series.
>>37525226this post is so embarassing that you should have deleted it out of shame

>>37525638>G4 zombie turds, Pony Life and Hello Pinkie PieSeason 8 and 9 already came out before those did.
>>37525660>Season 4 through 9 already came out before those didFTFY
>>37525557>The thing here is the IP either now belongs to Netflix or Faust is sitting on it sorta like the creator of KND nice plausible deniability faust but we all know that netflix is sitting on the rights per contract.This is basically standard practice in every animation corporate entity. It's much more practical to take the rowling route of owning the IP and selling liscences for it. this is the problem, and it's also the cause of you having to cuck to the liscence holders. When the production company that hopes to make money off of your IP has to compete with others in the same industry you could sell to, you will get the better deal compared to if the entity owned the ip outright. since they own it, there's nothing you can do.
>>37525665>Season 2 ep. 24 through 9 already came out before those didReal fix
>>37518948>hugely popularFIM was not "hugely popular" when she left. She left right around the time S1 finished airing, and by that point it was still barely known outside of /co/ and other cartoon-centric forums.Given the stupid shit Hasbro kept requesting to put into the show for toys, and Equestria Girls being in the planning stages at that point, I can imagine she just quit because she was losing creative control and Hasbro wanted to create EQG which was the very thing Faust was trying to fight against when making FIM.
>>37525733I am honestly a little upset we never saw Applejack's truck in the show.
>>37525714Netflix doesn't actually take every IP and in a few cases they're more or less a secondary area, you have a multitude of shows that they do own which they have listed as Originals, which Faust show likely fell on, but then you have instances like Glitch techs where the IP is own by a whole other company but will be aired through Netflix. In that example GT is currently cancelled by Nick and no matter what Netflix does not even they can renew or continue the developmental funding. The thing Faust failed to do here was play a genuine hard ball with whoever she was willing to stick with, she did what Diana did for Owl House and just tried to glide through on funding and network popularity as the main keys which was a mistake especially when dealing with Netflix in a post 'cuties' world. They're trying their hardest to not have any repeats of that or end up in any more rough areas, so Faust got caught in the mix and now her show is the development tumbler.It'll roll around until either one person puts in back on the menu or the officially can it and she'll have to start trying again. At this point she need to either do what the Helluva Boss people are doing and just start up a YT channel or do what wakfu does and using Kickstarter to fund a season of her show and then either find a network willing to air the completed work or find a platform that can get it seen while having her get paid for her work.(patreon is an option) Seriously, she's a semi-big name with a pretty solid resume so it shouldn't be hard to do either while keeping full control over her next creation.

>>37526397I mean look at what Nick did to Spongebob post Hilenberg's death, they did things he legit said he didn't want for Spongebob
>>37525715Why are Faustfags in denial about ACW? Everything but Cadance's alicorndom is pretty much exactly how she put it in the premise and she herself stated that she found out about Cadance being an alicorn when the episode aired, so her name can't have been removed from the script because of that and likely is the result of some procedural shuffling.>>37525733ReminderI can hardly blame her for leaving due to the miscarriage, but if Lauren had weathered the shitty schedule for her self-proclaimed dream job, she could've ended up where Meghan was, head of girls' entertainment, and maybe made an actual difference instead of always just complaining about it. Although she probably would've just quit once EqG went into planning anyways, which I think happened after she left.Speaking of Meghan, this is presumably what she was working on with Lauren, right?
>>37524757What are you talking about? This site made me feminist when I wasn't one before.

>>37526786>not practicing mlp's message of friendship and tolerance
>>37526797Very few will walk the pony path and make it to Equestria.
>>37526797>and tolerancenot canon.
>>37526810Tolerance is not universal, it has limits. If somebody's punching you in the face, you can refuse to tolerate that and still be a tolerant person in general.
>>37526865Either way MLP was never about tolerance, that's something the fandom made up.
>>37526869Tell that to Luna.
>>37525022Probably old fashioned mentality and shy type. I personally have a lot of financial problems which could be fixed with a little money boost yet I never ever asked. Genuinely don't know how to go about it.
>>37526915Faust never intended for Luna to come back after the pilot
>>37527110What does that have to do with anything? Luna went literal "dark side," tried to bump off her sister, seize absolute power, and declare night everlasting. When Celestia invoked the elements of harmony and she was banished, she came back 1000 years later ready to pick up right where she left off. But Twilight and friends wielded the Elements more successfully, knocked the magic out of Luna, and then Celestia came out and forgave her and they hugged it out. That's pretty fucking tolerant of your treasonous sister who was previously trying to murder you and end sunlight for all time. This notion that "tolerance" was made up by the fandom is a weird revisionist meme that just keeps getting repeated. It's like the blind leading the blind sometimes on /mlp/.
>>37527176>This notion that "tolerance" was made up by the fandom is a weird revisionist memeLying nigger. The only reason "tolerance" is a meme at all is because of the old "I'm going to love and tolerate the shit out of you" image macro that we used to use to make /b/tards rage.
>>37527242I know the macro, I used the macro, and "love and tolerance" were still themes of the show regardless. It's right fucking there in the premiere.
>>37527110TF are you talking about she wanted Luna to be a major character it was Hasbro who said no redemptions
>>37527324Literally the exact opposite but ok.
too bad mom has nobody to stand up for herboard is infested with eqg and twitter is people who can't even get her birthday right and /co/ hahahaha

>>37527687>You need corporations for your little animations or you starve."need" is a strong word, more like it's the safety net. If she needed funding so badly she has a multitude of options with how good her name still is. If it honestly mattered to her she would stop trying to play so much hard ball and start making more safe cartoons just to meet a quota

>>37526915>tell that to luna(you)

>>37529613>Ah, so you actually watch the show, guess that means you don't like it, heuehueI am shocked, shocked that someone who asserts this show made them more feminist is trying to pull this kind of gay ops. I never would have predicted it. >>37529615kek
>>37529626you got the hedge maze presentation thing from a 4chan post.i know because i also saw the post.it was funny.it was also a joke.the implication was not that he was made to do his presentation in the maze.he chose to set up in a maze.that could be because mazes are important to minotaur culture, or maybe because he personally likes mazes, or maybe even just because ponies associate them with mazes and he's using it as a gimmick.also, i'm not the same anon and the show didn't make me more feminist. anti-feminism is, ironically, what showed me that feminism is still important.
>>37529626You're talking to like three different people, dipshit. And you've failed to explain how Celestia's treatment of her treasonous sister wasn't an example of tolerance. Because you got nothing apart from "muh"
>>37529646>also, i'm not the same anon and the show didn't make me more feminist. anti-feminism is, ironically, what showed me that feminism is still important.cringe

>>37529674to be fair, there is a reasonable argument: just because you enjoy a work doesn't mean you have to agree with its principles.that doesn't excuse the people who warp and twist mlp:fim in their heads to see it as somehow about killing people you don't like.
>>37529686>also I'm not that anon, I'm just a carbon copy of himyeah, sure, every anon with the same opinion is the same anon.>big red horned guy tirek was part of the post-s2 bullshit where the writers couldn't decide what they wanted to do at all so cohesion went out the window. they went out of their way to unstone discord, a dangerous spirit of pure chaos, at huge risk to literally everyone, and befriended him, but then cozy glow (a literal child) got no chances at all (TWICE) despite the fact that she's pretty much harmless.
>>37529686>it's literally neoptism anon.So you're just shitposting furiously, got it.
>>37529718>tirek was p-part of p-p-p-post canon!yeshe was, before that you know what happened to villains who aren't important people? they got their metaphorical and even at times literal shit kicked in, Chrysalis, Discord, Gilda, flim and flam, trixie, garble, even the parasprites,meanwhile you have what, luna and the literal children DT and SP
>>37529742well shit. you're right. i attacked the wrong point.you win this time...but i still have an ace up my sleeve. i will remember this.
>>37529756dont worry, I know my shitbecause I love redemption storiesbut only if theyre earned, not when theyre a product of political posturing. That's also why Lunas story was so shit, but hey, leave it to hasbro to actually air a god damn pilot. There's a reason you aren't supposed to do that.
>>37529742All of that's irrelevant when we were discussing the S1 fandom and why the meme was "love and tolerate the shit out of you" and not "brushie brushie the shit out of you" or whatever. The point was that waaaay back when, love and tolerance were clear themes of the show. Shit that happened years later in the post-Faust era to muddy the picture doesn't apply.>>37529742The parasprites got sent back to where they came from, which is what you do if you can't find a way to live with an otherwise adorable little animal. And Gilda was given a ton of slack before the end -- even Pinkie questioned whether Gilda was the problem or if it was Pinkie herself -- and at the end Gilda chose to leave. If she had apologized and asked for forgiveness it's pretty clear they would have granted it.
>>37529806I don't know why I double quoted. Probably shouldn't be drinking as much
>>37529686>it's literally neoptism anon. Luna isn't some fucking rando, she's celestias sister.Celestia canonically prefers some neurotic college student over her sister when she forced her to resign after just coming back into office.

>>37529784>leave it to hasbro to actually air a god damn pilot. There's a reason you aren't supposed to do that.Wut? Pilots are literally used to introduce a show's premise and characters and gauge audience reaction, the entire point of them is to be seen. Not just by execs but by test screening and regular audiences as well. Can you imagine Twin Peaks or the X-Files without their pilot episodes? Everyone would be confused as fuck.
>>37531478Loads of shows never have their pilot shown on TV. It gets shown to test audiences and to execs, yeah, but it isn't always aired afterwards. If it is, it's often reworked or even reshot entirely.
I wanna lick Lauren's asshole while she berates me for my unrivaled degeneracy.
>>37531490this>>37531478the structure of a pilot is blatantly on point to, in an act of demonstrable but rightful contempt for ceos intelligence, create and contrive scenarios that will be woven into the actual story, and then portraying it in such a way that they, in their limited understanding, can see that it would be a product they would sell. As an actual story the pilot is garbage, none of the ponies act like people, and a major villain with huge ties to one of the secondary character's and twilights motivations, is handwaved in 20 minutes. Later on this would become a theme in the show, since the executives denied laura digimon like arcs of battle shit, but luna absolutely needed the 2 parter to herself at the very least, not the first half of it introducing characters and putting them through what in all honesty looks like a test of faith and character that, after passing, shed rip off her mask and congratulate the children 6 on being real heroes.These episodes cause all kinds of writing problems, make every character drop 20 iq points, and often completely dispense with worthy additions to the plot and universe because it's a known quantity that ceos are retards that will never get the concept like (an overarching villain is coming)

The animation test isn't really a pilot either but fits the description of "produced before the main show to introduce the general idea" a bit better.
