In today’s interview ‘We Bare Bears’ creator and executive producer Daniel Chong discusses what it’s like running a hit animated television show. Daniel is no stranger to hard work and dedication, having storyboarded for ten years in feature animation at studios including Disney, Pixar, Blue Sky and Illumination before pitching his ideas to various studios. His story demonstrates the importance of taking charge of your career and persevering through the ups and downs that come with company layoffs, mergers, films getting shelved, pitches being turned down and ultimately, crafting and creating a hit series for Cartoon Network. It’s a fascinating journey that you won’t want to miss!
