Hi Katie,

Very nice article....there are also options in general marketing, manufacturing, and business presentations for CG & Media artists.

Cheers,

A valid article, and a market I've been considering myself (Flash+VFX).

The problem I see with such a market, is that production times go up for VFX and the online banner market is one that is not too friendly for long turnaround times. So could something like this fall into a generalists pipeline?

We'll see what happens. One thing I have noticed is the rise of Papervision 3D in flash advertising. HP did a big takeover on our site which used a 3D-ish menu. Nothing revolutionary, but the idea of 3D is starting to make marketers take note.

IMO, the new Google API is the big one to watch.
