I support the picketing at PBS thats all fine and good.....the belief that if we make enough noise someone will listen, well maybee, but it must become a sustained and organized effort...For me, trying to change the old guard is a waste of time.IT'S
OVER! so lets get moving....just turn your back on it...China is being tapped now...all one need do is read the history af the railroads and the robber barons...It's business as usual..this isn't going to stop......so lets start making our own efforts....The new animation biz here in the US is a cottage indusry,let's start small..and build it up....What I'm getting at is this....there are many minds pouring over the problems of getting things on the internet to "pay", there will be a solution and soon. I would suggest that folks begin to busy themselves with filmaking and storytelling...one ,two and three minute stuff is all you need to do...the idea of grooming oneself to be "attractive " to the large studios is pass'e. Stop trying to fix the old dynamic.LETS MOVE ON. By the time some of these small films are completed,just by fact that they exist,there will be somewhere to put them. I dont beleive there is any "saving" the cartoon biz.It's up to us to get back to the basics of cartoon making....creativity,find your message,..focus ,storyboard ,animate.
