Sharleen Howison, One of the things that you have to remember is that it is possible now to make any video (especially) that can tell any tale. Watch Men in Black and Titanic if you don't believe me. The ability to modify images is excellent and getting better. The next step is to be able to do a whole movie without any live characters that would be taken as a "live" movie (rather that a cartoon which Toy Story was) by the general public. Titanic has done a bit of that process. Even with moderatly priced equipment a lot can be done. I occasionally threaten to make a "UFO" movie myself and all that I really need is the D2 TV camera and conversion equipment to do so. I may also possibly do it with the MPEG process. All it takes is an image editor (of which there are many) and the computer to run the software on. The process is to decode an image, insert the UFO and reencode the image into the digital data stream. The biggest problem is to do a good job of it and that is merely keeping track of the details.
