The last time I checked, ANIMATED films don't have to be cut, nor are there any out takes or bloopers.

I recognize that Pixar's films are almost certainly digitally edited so the contents of each lab reel can be output as a batch, but non-computer-animated films have certainly been assembled by cutting negatives. Further, both hand-drawn and computer-generated movies can have real outtakes. Usually stuff that doesn't work is yanked before going to ink and paint or final rendering, but there are exceptions.

Animated story boards are the test vehicles, a technique borrowed from Studio Ghibli. No out takes or unnecessary effort required.

I'm a 3-d animator. There is no such thing as a blooper or outtake from an animated movie. Every motion, every single one, is made by a human. Even the ones that are batch created (crowds and the like) are under the absolute control of a human.

In animation everything that any character does costs money. Every character is owned or worked on by someone who wants that money.

If they say it's a blooper or an outtake, they are lying. It's an extra meant to sell the dvd or movie.

No animator does free work for which they can get paid.

That's what demo reels are for.
