Why didn't the showers at the Cave have partitions between them? It seems weird that people who wear masks to hide their identities would share an open shower area. There's no privacy in the League when it comes to personal higiene? What about the Team? Did Robin shower with his sunglasses on?
Robin kept his eyes closed.
I have some questions about Star Wars Rebels.
1. Can you go through the process of making a complete episode of Star Wars Rebels?
2. What was your role while working on the show?
3. How long did it take to complete a whole episode?
4. Did you make any voice cameos in the show like Dave Filoni has?
5. What is Dave Filoni like, and what was it like working with him?
1. Um. Sure.
In the broadest terms, we broke the stories together.
Writers went off and wrote outlines.
I edited the outlines.
I got notes on the outlines.
Writers went off and wrote scripts.
I edited the scripts.
I got notes on the scripts.
I revised the scripts.
We recorded the dialogue.
Design work, which began off of us breaking the stories above, continued with more specificity based on the scripts.
Storyboard artists began storyboarding based on the scripts and the dialogue tracks.
Directors turned the storyboards into animatics for review.
Animation was done overseas.
Footage came back, which was edited in post-production.
Music and effects were added.
There's way more to it than that, but that covers the basics.
2. I was the story editor on Season One. I also wrote a few of the episodes myself. And I even voiced a couple of Storm Troopers. As a producer, I was involved in casting, and many other aspects of the series. And I ran the writer's room where we broke the stories.
3. About a year.
5. Dave's great. We had a blast.
1. Did you see Rogue One? If so what did you think of it?
2. Are you excited for Episode VIII?
3. Have you been following Star Wars Rebels after leaving the show once season 1 was done? If so, what are your thoughts on the show and where it is going.
1a. Generally, liked it.
3. I watched season two and thought it was great. Have DVR'd everything since, but I've just been too swamped to watch it yet.
1. When did Aquaman and Mera get married?
2. When is Iris' due date for the twins?
3. On Earth-16, is Vandal Savage considered the first ever cannibal?
4. How old is Wally and Artemis' dog Brucely?
5. Is Wally's sacrificing of himself to save the world public knowledge, or did the League keep it under wraps?
1. I haven't nailed that down.
2. The September immediately following Season Two.
3. When did you stop beating your wife?
4. He was two in season two.
5. No spoilers.
Do you enjoy having conversations with people about your work (If they are not asking for spoilers or trying to pitch you ideas etc.
Do you ever whistle just for the fun of it?
Hey Greg, I thought I'd bring up a paradox I thought of regarding YJ, not to criticize the show (I loved the show) but just for fun:
Okay so let's suppose for the sake of discussion that Impulse went back into the past solely to prevent Blue Beetle from going rogue (whether or not this was his only reason remains to be seen). So the reach fails their plan and everything is good. But, we know impulse went back into the past from a dystopic future to prevent said future from ever happening. Now let's say Impulse is able to stop the future from happening. Regardless of whether he can go back to the future or not, the timeline is altered so that the future was never dystopic to begin with, not giving Impulse any reason to go into the past in the first place. What happens to the Impulse already in the past, does he "cease?" The rabbit hole goes deeper. With the future altered, Impulse doesn't go into the past to begin with. So there's no Impulse in the past to fix the dystopic future. So the future becomes dystopic again. So the universe is indetermined. It's in a superposition of states: Dystopic future or happy future. Impulse having to go into the past or not. This is simply a rewording of the grandfather paradox by the way. Let's suppose time travel is possible in the first place (it's not, it's forbidden by the second law of thermodynamics), the ramifications on the universe could be immense, or there could be none at all depending on how the The Young Justice universe works. Just wanted your thoughts on this. Thanks!
Yeah, I've explored all this in detail. The workings of Time Travel in the DC Universe don't suit my preferences. I prefer the way we did time travel in the Gargoyles Universe. But the way I see it for YJ, is that in essence, Bart came back, and his coming back, split off Earth-16 as a parallel universe. So Bart came back from - in essence - another time line.
As of Jan. 2017, have you heard anything regarding new comics or anything to do with Gargoyles?
No. Not as of April 2017 either.
I'd like to offer an apology.
As you may recall, I was the one who asked why you are no longer working on Rebels. I wouldn't ask someone in real-life why they are no longer working at such-and-such a place, so I shouldn't ask questions like that in an online forum either. I hope that you will accept my apology and won't hold my rudeness against me if we ever meet in person. Believe it or not, I am usually considered a very polite person. I will try in the future to remember that there is an actual person responding to our questions and not a machine.
Now, how old is Zatanna? :)
1. No worries. Honestly.
2. She was 14 during season one.
