Here is an example I posted recently which you can view without joining. Eric Singer, who wrote the scene, is a live action screenwriter. In live action, the scene could be engaging on the basis of nuanced performances by charismatic actors. I could not count on the viewer's attention being held by static shots of two animated characters talking while lying on cushions. (Read the script pages)The scene ends up being far more distinct and memorable than what was written as a result of having to compensate.

Thanks, that was very interesting (and of course I'm on your Patreon! What do you take me for?)
re: Eric, would you have written the scene a different way? Modern animation is full of shot/reverse shot. It's boring, and a waste of the medium's potential. You can draw almost anything - why make the scene look like a cheap soap opera that has one set and two cameras?
