Way back in 2000 and again in 2003, this studio held a conference for directors who had some type of working relationship with the studio.
In those particular years, this director was given the same introduction.
The same one even though they were three years apart. In both cases he appeared via video.
“________ wanted to be here to promote _______ (1 in 2000, 2 in 2003) but he’s busy in his room with a very young boy.”
The crowd goes crazy with laughs both times, so obviously everyone was in the know even way back then about his behavior.
Many of them are still working with the studio or employed by the studio and are waiting to see how much money they are going to get from a different studio in the near future.
Making a huge payday even knowing what they knew.
