Well, what *I* do, currently, is 3D effects animation. Basically anything
that is not considered a character (an animal, the Iron Giant, cg alien, etc.,
are characters) is what I can potentially deal with. What it usually ends up
being is, like right now, snow, or smoke, spaceships, debris, cars (5th
Element), flames, etc. I can and have also done a wee bit of compositing, and
a lot of lighting. What DD does is film and commercials work, and the
occasional theme park ride, like T2/3D which I worked on or the hellish
Stormrider fisting that Disney has handed us.

Oh, I have imagined. 200 million can also get you Waterworld, which was shit
for the money. X-Men is looking cool. Yamato would suck if it lives as the
rumor of Disney doing it with the Arizona in place of the Yamato. But, ya, if
I were in charge...
