So yeh, it's been over a year since I went to Comic Con, and to be honest, even though I was hearing about all the awesome stuff, I wasn't that jealous. I could fall back on the "Well, I have been there ONCE", thing.

But a) they finally announced an air date and promo videos for Wander Over Yonder, which I have been waiting for since Comic Con last year, and b) they showed off a bunch of animatics for MLP season four. Now, when I was there, they showed off a piece of season three, but it was stuff I was gonna end up seeing anyway in the show. This was animatics! Production work! Stuff where I could look for artistic tells to see if I could recognise which board artist might've done it! This is stuff that won't get broadcast on TV, that'll probably end up as a hidden gem on some random DVD boxset!

Honestly, if they did a panel where all they did was screen animatics of various cartoons, I would queue the fuck up for that shit instantly. Or if Legend of Korra, or Gravity Falls, or any good animated show released a DVD that was just the production work, I would go into debt to get that.

It's a shame that that's not a thing, else I'd finally be able to say something other than "money" when people ask what I want for my birthday.

It's a step in the production of anything animated, where you take the audio you've got, take the storyboard panels you've got, and place them on a timeline. The best ones are as cool to watch as the finished product.
