It’s getting easier and easier for non-professional studios to get to ‘Ehh. I can’t really tell the difference’ TV/movie production values. BUCKETHEADS is operating at, what, 1998, 2002 AD-style special effects? That’s easily enough, for what they need to produce.

Mind you, at that point they’re gonna need to get their own IPs.

The more I look at this, the more I appreciate the levels of “sit on it and rotate” that this transformation entails.
