Animation workflow

It takes big studios like Pixar roughtly 4 years to go from initial pitch to finished movie. It's taken me just under 3 years to get Archon Defender done, and it'll be roughly 3 years and a few months (now that the sound fx is almost all done) The studios have hundreds of artists working on their films, and render farms that should pose no restrictions on rendering and compositing workflow. I'm able to make my film while also holding down a full time money job (the key is no TV. or friends :(

So how is it that Pixar isn't coming out with 50 movies a year?...

One reason one explanation is your determination your talent.
