Dear Princess Celestia,

Today I also learned that just because senior management's in town, that you, in order to keep your job as coach/manager, shouldn't change how you manage a well-functioning team1. If you change the way you motivate your team, your workers will rapidly burn themselves out (and waste a lot of effort doing things that look flashy but don't have a hope in hell of working) in order to keep their jobs. The situation is exacerbated when other teams work to undermine your team for personal advantage. Office politics and burnout lead to retention problems that jeopardize the project, forcing you to pitch in and throw everything together at the last minute, and the best-case outcome is that the hastily-completed deliverable ships successfully and senior management remains blissfully ignorant that anything was ever amiss in the first place.

1 I can't believe I just described the CMC as a well-functioning team. But they did manage to ship it2.

I think they work as both, but it's context-dependent. As side characters, they're a great means to give the Mane Six new problems or opportunities to interact with each other, and add many opportunities for comic relief. When they appear as leads, I try to remember the original target audience for the show. In addition to heroic figures they can look up to, kids also need characters to whom they can relate as slightly-less-mature versions of themselves, in much the same way as we (as older fans) regard the Mane Six as slightly less-mature versions of ourselves. The CMC make the sorts of mistakes kids make in kindergarten, just as the Mane Six screw up like grad students and professionals. The stakes are smaller -- the fate of the world never depended on your performance at the talent show, the parade float, or getting picked to carry a flag -- but back when you were a kid, it sure felt like it.

Based on the animatics shown at SDCC, today we can determine whether Diamond Tiara or Silver Spoon is Worst Pony. :-(


There's an in-betweening frame of Ms. Harshwhinny as she turns her head, sort of a Chuck Jones (RIP) moment where the character is so warped as to be unrecognizable. That's arguably trickier to do these days than it was in the days of film, given the limitations imposed by digital video compression.
