!!Tropes associated with Freelance Animators New Zealand:

* SignatureStyle: John Ewing, who supervised the animators with Barry Pearce, was a former Disney animator and his style can be seen in many Freelance episodes. Check out this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMSZp7YkVQg anti-smoking PSA]] from 1981 (directed by Ewing); it is very similar to what would be seen in Freelance episodes a decade later.
