I have been pondering about this, going though my classes and looking at animation both from USA or Japan I have realized that when we (USA) make an animated commercial, not one for a animated movie but just an animated commercial. You can tell that they used a small budged but with Japan theirs seem to have more effort, it makes sense since animation in Japan is like Hollywood for us but it kinda makes me think that we are lazy.
Doesn't seem like we take much pried in our work at points, Once in a while in the US we will have a good Animated commercial but it is rare especially when it comes to 2D animation. It's a little sad how we are so lazy and don't really realize a good thing. But thats just me everyone has their own way of thinking, I would like to hear from anyone who reads this their thoughts on this matter!
Anyway thank you for reading my crayness
here are some examples of what I mean.
