This sounds like its gonna be the same old monkey boy tactics with these guys runnin the show...

Checked out, call me a critic, but Im so sick of the non-drawing style of drawin these days. Why do people think that since its flash you don't have to have any artistic Talent. the only show I liked in the slightest bit, was Zombie College and I couldn't even watch the whole thing. I didn't laugh once or even put it in my Favorites window for later. Every site I go to these days with short independent flash movies has the same style, none. I know this is only temporary and I not losin any sleep over this, but with the posts being left on this site lately with job opportunities, I can't help but be concerned. So i asked the question to the people that are doin the hiring... anyone that fits that discription that is reading please reply...If a person has fundementally strong drawing skills, are you gonna hire them or just the babies out of college?, does experience mean anything to you any more or is that too expensive?

I did respond to one of these post of internet animation job opportunities, and although I do design, I only wanted to offer my Color stylist abilities since I have more experience in that department. He replied that since they were doin Flash, there was no need for a color stylist. Now I don't think this guy is a bad person by any means, just confused or misled, maybe my lack of experience in the illustration catagory will get me a job before my award winning color abilities...I spent too much time on this one, tell me what you think on this subject.
