In March of 2014, I had the pleasure of giving a talk at Animatic T.O, an informal lecture series founded by Barry Sanders and continued by Andrew Murray when Barry took a job in Halifax. Grayden Laing of the Canadian Animation Blog videotaped the presentation and now it's available online, courtesy of Grayden and John Righton.
I developed the talk into a series on this blog. The first part of that series has been read almost 10,000 times to date. Since giving the talk, my opinions haven't changed. I've seen nothing in the intervening time to suggest that creators are getting a better deal anywhere. I would love it if someday, a stranger walked up to me and told me that as a result of my talk, he or she kept ownership of their property and are making a living from it. Hope springs eternal.
