Now that DC comics have relaunched and the status quo has changed for important characters like Superman does it make it easier for YJ to be more creative and original ie not following the same routine path we always see DC take? Will YJ reflect any of the changes?
Everything we've planned was planned and pretty much set in the deadline equivalent of stone before DC announced or informed us of their plans. So you won't see it reflected in our series. This is simply a fact of life due to our deadlines on YJ.
1) How important is it for the plot to keep the identity of the Light members a secret? And what lengths do you go to to enforce it? I mean, when you put a dome-shaped figure speaking with a thick French accent, you are just begging for it... :)
2) Is the mystery of their identities something conceived specifically for the less comic-savvy target demographics?
3) Is the anonymity of each member equally important as of the rest, or are some more important to the plot than others?
I must say that I quite enjoy this trope. It's quite exiting. But it's been only 10 episodes, and fans have figured out 6 out of 7 members of the group. (Personally I had guessed 5 -- good job with L-3. I didn't see it coming, somehow. Mark Rolston's cadence in "Targets" was different from "Fireworks," which totally blindsided me).
1. We wanted to play fair and offer hints without being definitive - until episode 114.
2. Both, I guess.
Did Bruce Wayne ever found out who killed his parents?
What is Bruce Wayne pubklic reputation on Earth 16 do most consider him a rich idiot with no day job, a serious business man or somewhere in between?
He's a serious business man, who has a reputation for working hard AND playing hard. Not many think he's an idiot, but many would consider him a playboy, by the old school definition of the term.
Though I know your mind isn't the kind to play favorites, but given how you acknowledge The Mirror as your favorite/the best episode of Gargoyles, I think this might be able to fly.
Do you have any particular episodes of WITCH or The Spectacular Spider-Man that, if it wasn't your favorite necessarily, you felt was the best of those shows? And for what reasons, if so?
At the moment, I can't think of just one for either series. But it's been a while since I've watched them.
1.Does Aqualad go to school?
2.How Does Superboy feel about Superman?
3.How come the teenage superheroes aren't going to be calling there team Young Justice?
1. Not anymore.
2. It's complicated.
3. It never occurred to them. Guess they haven't read the comics.
Less a question, more of a comment. While visiting one of my dearest friends over in Long Island over the summer, one of the things we did together was watch Gargoyles (as part of a little trade of interests-her offering was showing me a documentary on the legacy and fandom of the Rock-a-Fire Explosion series of animatronics, which was fairly interesting and quite enjoyable in its own right). As we've mostly communicated online for our 9 or so year friendship, doing something like this isn't a common thing. Especially considering we've only been in person together for two visits, each lasting about a week.
I'm happy to report that after a viewing of The Mirror, Double Jeopardy, and Eye of the Beholder, she became quite fond of the series and has expressed interesting in indulging further. I was beyond happy that she did, as being able to share Gargoyles with her joins the rest of that week as one of many memories I feel lucky to have.
Thought you'd like to know.
That's great. Thanks.
How closely do you stick to the covert ops concept for each episode? I noticed that even when it's not a direct mission from Batman, there is still an element of going undercover.
We strive for that.
A few questions about voice-over.
1) Is it recorded before the episode is animated?
2) How long does it take from recording the voice work until the episode is completely finished?
3) Do all actors get together in the room when recording one episode?
4) Are you present?
3. Ideally. Sometimes people aren't available on the day of the record, and we pick them up later. Sometimes if someone only has a line or two in the episode, we take pity on them and get them in and out fast. Sometimes, a single episode has two completely separate plots intertwining. We'd ideally record every actor in the first plot together, and then record every actor in the second together. But since the two groups don't interact, there's no need to record the entire group together and force a lot of actors to sit through scenes they're not in at all.
1. Is Kid Flash an atheist?
2. Is there a Catwoman on Earth 16?
1. I guess he thought he was.
2. NO COMMENT.
