Fellow tropers, I need your help! I'm working on an animation Genre Deconstruction
called the Animation Crossroads. Details on what I have so far here
. Now, as you'll notice, I'm having existing charcters in this work alongside original characters. But here's the question:
Should I be using existing characters, or should I use entirely original characters for the story?
For the former, the advantage would be that the deconstruction would most likely have a bigger impact, since it's characters we know and love. But the latter has the advantage of more creative freedom, to be able to take the deconstruction futher then I would be able to with existing characters. I'm planning for a film trilogy, so the problem of Executive Meddling
will be an issue.
