the need for television

if it wouldn't have been for great animation movies that hollywood produces and the sports channels, i am sure, i would have grown tv illiterate. and i didn't know animation movies look as charming in greyscale as they do in the riot of colour that they are.

although i am sure that there must be as great animation movies being made in other parts of the world - looking at the quality of non-english adult cartoons available - disney and pixar seem to have taken animation to a different level.

i was browsing the channels before picking up my daily dose of sudoku [these days i am growing affinity for kakuro as well], when "happy feet" [amazing soundtrack and a very entertaining movie] glued me to an hbo reception which has been in b&w for past some days. i am slowly coming to the conclusion that because of the costs included in making an animation movie, presentlyonly big production houses are able to attempt them which somewhat ensures their quality [even at the cost of a little remotely predictable storyline].

i loveddddddddddddddddd happy feet.. darn cute movie, n i worked for sometime in the media vertical- n boy, the costs invvolved are quite high!! i deal with the IT hardware reqd, so when they put things in2 perspective, it's a huge thing to get stuff conceptualised, the tsory-board hand drawn, the pre prod, prd n post prod, all the rendering involved! it calls for a huge creative/technical base!
