: Honestly, you can ask anybody at StarToons: I have been trying to get our cartoons on the web for two years solid! My most computer-literate employee thinks it's amusing that his boss, essentially the most technologically backward person in the company (have you guessed that? I AM a cave man!), is still the one pushing the HARDEST for technological advancement. But when I ask for technical advice, it comes back, essentially: "Scrap the $150,000 investment you made in producing that cartoon and re-do it in Flash, which will take you another year to learn. It may look crappy, but it will be in terms we can deal with."
Whoever is telling you that is a uneducated FOOL. And you can tell them I said so too.
: Why can't I just transfer my cartoons' .YUV (TV-video) files to a Quicktime format, and then stream them to the consumer from my FTP site? Why should I stop and redo everything as Flash-Crap?
Darlin', you already can! Damn, what are you waiting for?
: I believe the internet will be THE ultimate source of information AND entertainment, eventually. When that day comes, there will also - necessarily - be better softwares available.
The internet IS the ultimate source of information and entertainment.
But don't you agree that it would be useful to know the whole process, to be a part of it's evolution, to participate in it's developement? If you wait five more years to become involved in technology, how much more difficult will it be for you to adapt?
: Keep your standards high, is all I'm saying.
Ofcourse you should aim for being the best in everything you do. You'd pretty much set an unbeatable standard if the animations I saw on your video tape at ASIFA were streaming and on the net. Don't you agree?
: I have been dedicating myself to reviving the American TV animation production industry for the last 12 years. It's a lonely battle, but I don't believe it's lost yet.
Oh don't worry, you haven't lost your magic yet. Are you reading that book?
