Congratulations about getting your novel published!

In "Summit", I notice that most of the episode takes place in a single setting (up until the end.) Was this a conscious choice or just how the episode worked out?

I know some shows do this to experiment. I also know that some live action shows do this to save money, but I don't think that would make much of a difference with animated shows.

All of the above.

And it absolutely saves money in animation. That many fewer backgrounds to paint. (They don't grow on trees, you know.)

But I also liked setting that creative challenge for myself.
