That may be due to the other thread showing a Nelvana Doctor Who 13-ep series in 1986.
I meant the talent acquisition who'll be working on that series. The Genesis of the point probably should have been in Neon.
I'm quite enjoying this. I especially appreciate the nod to Nelvana animation. In OTL Rock and Rule very nearly sunk them, and I think it contributed to the 'lurching/desperate' quality of some of their choices. A large problem with Rock and Rule was that it was such an odd piece the marketers really didn't know what to do with it. What you've done here is given the company an opportunity to forge a coherent strategic direction.
Apart from that, I'm quite enjoying the literary style of the work - the quotations from different persons in this new history, the unpredictable permutations, and the excerpts from the series.
Don't mind me. I'm just going to keep working in my tiny corner of Nelvana. But if anyone wishes to read my work there as a subset of this, I won't object. If Dav goes off in very different directions from me, I'll continue my own, and enjoy his as well.
Glad you're enjoying the TL and its format, is proving to be more fun with changing the shift every now and then. Rock And Rule was an interesting project all in all, it could have made quite the splash but the studio killed it off before it could take a gamble with it. By just about breaking even ITTL, but still having the network breathing down their neck regarding what projects they can take, as well as the split between the mature fare and the more 'kiddy' stuff, it really lets Nelvana go in a vastly different direction, albeit one with its own traps and problems.
Is yours the one with a Doctor Who Nelvana cartoon? I'll have to look out for that one.
