Hello, Jon, .. I think I saw you from afar, towering above the hoi polloi ... (they grow 'em tall in Chicago, huh?)

I couldn't stop over to say hello. I had to trot off to the expo seminar on "The Next Wave: Animation on the Internet."

It was interesting to listen to the folks from Shockwave, AtomFilms, MondoMedia, Film Roman/Level 13 ...

As you were (rightfully) implying in your post, ~ despite our love for animation as an artform, .. in the context of Hollywood, it is ultimately a business. The dollar dictates.

One member of the audience asked pointedly, "What about the animator? How will animated content on the internet benefit us?"

The producers and directors answered assuringly: "The ultimate culmination will be the resurgence of the storyteller."
