It's absolutely true, Charles. It's like the mammal and the dinosaur.

For various reasons I have to be anonymous on this one. I'm working on a pilot episode for a particular TV show with a particular producer from a particular "overbloated giant" studio. During all of our meetings, this producer talks on her car phone to wheelers and dealers around the world: what writers should we use? which Asian studio will we send the work to?

Despite my careful explanations and history lessons, even over drinks (when it might have a chance of sinking in), she simply will not consider the possibility of letting American animators help design a show that can A) entertain, and B) meet the requirements of the New Economics. She, and so many producers like her, cannot imagine doing things any differently.

In the mean time, the reality worsens. We have answers, and we are being ignored. How many eons will pass before this ponderous dinosaur dies? Will I still be alive?
