What's the difference between writing for animation and writing for live-action?
ML - If you're comparing it to sitcom writing, for example, it's harder. The structure of the writing is harder, like a little feature. You're not just writing dialog, you're writing direction, you're almost like a writer and director. It's a lot closer to hour drama or screenwriting, I'd say.
