    If I was doing a free anime, I'd be working else where while I produce it, kind of like I'm doing now, cept for the producing anime part, thats in progress right now.

    While at work I work on the story line part of the anime itself, and then when I get home I start drawing.

    Its working out for me, for now, kinda, its hard working on one all by yourself, so its taking quite a bit of time. But the efforts there, and thats all that counts, right?

    Well generally if you're a cartoonist or anime "maker" you want to strive for your series to hit it off and be shown which essentially means having it aired on TV. And that would basically be showing it for free.

    How you make money off of it would be I assume the same as how a lot of makers get paid. If a company picks up the rights to show it you get a certain percentage. Also depending on what contracts you sign and agree to, you'll get a percentage of all the money made from marketable objects from the show (Like toys, clothing, posters, DVDs, cd's and so on.) As well as syndication, where I believe you can make agreements that once a show is over and goes into syndication you get paid a certain percentage every time an episode is aired.

    So if I am correct all those people who agreed to syndication rights or what not like 15 years ago are making money off the show again because it's been put back on the air (Example: My so Called Life, My Secret Identity, Golden Girls)

    The real money is in marketing. Ideally you would take a smaller percentage in the sell of video's/tv and retain marketing rights. Everything after expenses (production and distribution) made would be yours.

    Making a living while getting your first product off the ground is the real issue.
