Skimming through the article it seems to me that the middle man is relentless and wiggling its way into the middleman-less world to once more fill a virtual void (there is no void but a good middle man can make any space look like a void). These characters will be following us like the shady types they have always been; bottom eaters feeding on the natural fears of every self-made person, with the persistent siren's song: You can't do it alone! You can't do it alone! You need me!Gochris1 wrote: Here's news you can use: if you are interested in making a film and offering it up on your own site as a pay-per-view download, check out this article:

I disagree that animators have to be like stand-up comedians which is to say we need a fan base. The way I am going about this is reversing the thought: I need to make my work attractive to a preexisting interest group. Interest groups are like tribes which stay together by sharing all the news that is interesting to all of them, no matter where in the world they happen to live. Essentially, one needs to learn the trick of the middle man: position yourself into the midst of a preexisting group.
