Why writers drink, reason #348765

So I’m commissioned to write a 50-min animated TV pilot, but between drafts 2 and 3, it’s decided that it should be an 80-min DVD feature.

I am not informed of this decision. The animation director rewrites the script. English is not the animation director’s first language.

The animation director presents me with his new draft to polish. My agent points out that this is not professional behaviour.

So they ask if I’d like to write the trailer.
