I for one, would think this is NOT a goofy idea. Isn't this what we're all talking about, er, most of us anyway. What about a co-op set up? A place where all the talent on this board could invent, produce, direct, and put out all kinds of inventive work. Anybody pitches. Everybody works on it. It goes from there. Yes I know there are things to be ironed out like "Where the hell is the money going to come from?" Well, where did all the OTHER studios get their money when they started. They begged, borrowed or stole it. Or they had a brotha who could get it. Anybody got any financial whizzes as siblings?
We have short film ideas, the internet, games, 3D, features and on and on. At least, we should get together to meet on AFTER the April 3rd meeting. We should continue to make connections with each other. There's a lot of talent here that could be used to making a lot of good things happen and not have to depend on the major studios for work. Exchange ideas. Besides I didn't get a chance to meet Snakebite at the Animation Expo. I was down there talking to Jon for a while on Sat. too.
: since no one is making any cartoons(decent ones) i was wondering if there were any animators out there that want to work on a cartoon(sans pesky producers) doesnt matter what, or who pitches it, the point is to combine all the best talents and at the same time be unhindered by executive meddling.i figure if there's so many of us out there we could at least produce some kind of shorts or other kinds of animation by pooling our talents. There are so many good cartoon ideas out there ive heard from fellow animation artists that go to waste when studios balk at doing "original" ideas.
: i know its kinda a goofy idea, with questions about money and all that, and in reality i'd do it myself voluntarily just so i could produce something i wasnt afraid to watch or claim to have been a part of.
