I'm told a lot of departments anticipate an abundance of overtime, but as one employee put it:
"We're going to try to do six-day weeks. But we'll probably have some seven-day work schedules. Steve Goldberg has made the pipeline pretty efficient, and that helps. We learned what we need to do during Wreck-It Ralph, so we'rein good shape. ..."
At Dreamworks Animation, the studio will be shifting to 40 and 45-hour weeks. Before state law changed on January 1st, the company had a bunch of pre-paid overtime deals with employees. Those are now (mostly) inoperative, and DreamWorkers tell me everyone will be on 45-hour deals when current Personal Service Contracts lapse. This will give DreamWorks Animation a payroll week similar to Disney.
Meantime, at Bento Box, most of the story artist have returned from hiatus on Bob's Burgers, and have started work on a new season of shows. A second season of Brickleberry is underway at Bento Box's Lankershim Blvd. Studio in North Hollywood. (Bento #1 is in Burbank, California, Bento #2 is in Studio City, California and yet another outpost is in Atlanta.)
