Ariel Chao's Overboard is one of the best representations of the types of experiences you'll probably have while employed in any creative industry. With a few years of experience under my belt in the rocky videogame industry, I think Overboard nails it on the head, hard. You'll run into studios run with a hands off approach, disorganized studios, studios run by divas, ego trippers and crooks, but every once in a while a studio will come around that knows how to run a tight ship and keep everyone relatively happy. It's not all peaches and cream, as they say.
An animated look into how the production side of animation works. How an animation studio runs portrayed through a ship analogy. We follow producers Jim and Jane as they navigate their way through the wonderfully chaotic world of animation.
