Hey Charles! Ever play that computer game, "Civilization"? You start in the Stone Age and through various advances, you're eventually building stealth bombers and curing cancer and colonizing Alpha Centauri.
The form of government progresses too. Everybody starts out with "despotism" ... basically, Might makes Right. It's crude, but it's better than the alternative: anarchy.
Somehow my impression of the Animation Nation is that animators are somewhere between despotism and anarchy. I mean, I mentioned (way down the board) that it's no wonder execs won't respect us, the way we disrespect each other ... and I got my head torn off for that, too!
I got an e-mail from one of my animators in Chicago ... experiencing extreme frustration, to the point where he can't even draw! He is one of my bright shining prospects ... and he's so pissed off he can't work. Reminds me of a young me.
Why are we always so pissed off? Any chance that could ever change?
Maybe it's not that we're sheep but more like army ants. We don't achieve much, but don't stir us up.
