“Y’know, we could save some time by using the main background people for the audience cutaway.”

Ted the Animator: “Meaning?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, right after the shot of the creepy audience…”

Carl the Animator: “…the next frame, it can cut straight back to her, but with most of the same people!”

Carl the Animator: “Boom. Minimal re-drawing.”

Ted the Animator: “Yyyyeah, I don’t think that can stay in the movie.”

Carl the Animator: “What? Why?”

Ted the Animator: “As much as I admire efficiency… I’m not so big on teleportation.”

Carl the Animator: “There’s not that much.”

Ted the Animator: “Well, there’s Weird-Charlie-Brown-Shirt-Butt-Chin-Guy moving from back-left to front-right… Tan-Uniform-Guy stealing Creepy Grandpa’s drink… and the wall in front of them radically changing, all in a twelfth of a second.”

Carl the Animator: “Well, sure, but think of the valuable stuff we could work on with that saved time.”

Ted the Animator: “Like?”

Carl the Animator: “Like getting enchiladas.”

Ted the Animator: “…ok, looks like it’s staying in the movie.”
