Not from drugs ... but the stock market.
DreamWorks Animation gapped up Wednesday and climbed further in early trade. The stock took out the session highs late in the afternoon and closed up by $2.45 at $31.13. DreamWorks broke out of a 2-month range and set a 10-month high.
The reason I don't always blather on about how awesome Up is, or how Chris Wedge is a freaking genius, is that this dull stock stuff is important.
Because if the studio tanks, the employees that create the product the studio is known for get laid off. So it's a good idea to do some focussing on the economics of animation -- the grosses, the stock price, etc.
Because when the end credits are scrolling, it's about the money, not about the artistry. Sad, but that's the way it works.
