I ask this question in regards to the economy in general. Whats gonna turn us around as country? the big corporations or small businesses? I get mixed responses. personally, I think its small businesses.

Does this question apply to the animation industry? I think so. We're a full on global economy now. no secret there.

So whats the future of animation. Small or large companies? where do you see the future model of our community evolving?

maybe its as simple as, Both. But as established in Mr Bluths thread the big corporations only fill one niche. seems like a whole other playing field that hasn't been used in a long time.

time to trim the grass and play ball!!!

The larger studios will always be around because it takes an established firm with cash to sustain multiple projects in varying stages. Smaller studios, on the other hand, excel at short form work and are usually able to contract and grow with the size of the production on hand. The mid sized studio is probably the place you would least want to be involved in. Unfortunately the mid size studio is probably one that wants to be big but doesn't have the resources to make it through rough seas and has grown too large to easilly downsize. The key to being sustainable is to know how to contract or grow when times call for it. In essence, the future probably looks the same as it does now: large studios will dominate the feature market while smaller studios pick up everything else. The ultimate question really isn't so much if the future is about small or large studios but rather what kind of content will be produced and who will watch it. Answer that question and you will be able to tell what the studio of the future will look like.

I think whats important to understand is big businesses started as small business. we won't have big business if we push out the start up entrepreneurs. we need to support the small guy and their ideas just as much as we should protect the big guy....


after all, we all started small and no one is too tall to fall.
