    You should see their sample of work. So it has to be something along that quality.

    Good style I bet that futur link between AE and LW would be a bless for you!

    Can you tell us a bit more about your work-flow? I would be interested to know for instance if LW is often use in your works? (I mean, more than using particles or floaking) Is Lightwave a nice tool to work 2d video, do you use it directly for animation (character, , environment...) ?

    Prices are what we got in Paris...so well it's expensive but if people are ready to pay this prices, they are always sure to make serious profits!

    About works, I just managed to see pictures on your website, do you have more video samples to show?

    Yep, we're in sunny Tasmania!

    More videos are on the way, we've got plenty of work by our people but not stuff which is targeted enough to put on the site.

    I'm not sure what you mean by the prices, it comes down to what we can pay our artists(including me) fairly for their work.

    The link between LW and AE will be fantastic.

    I look to use the different software at our disposal for their strengths. Most of the 2D animation happens in Flash, with animated vector files exported to AE for better camera features & compositing.

    The swarm was flat geometry in LW with clip mapped question marks, which I asked nicely to always face the camera.

    I'm really interested in using different software together, it's a great deal of fun to bring a bunch of animation together from different sources.

    I was chuckling about the fact that the price is about the same as a lot of Indie film projects for budget. Didn't mean for it to sound rude.

    Could you clarify this a bit Cryonic?

    Still a little unclear, do you mean on a dollar for dollar basis? I'm curious!

    (btw, the price is competitive in the target market, while fairly paying everyone professional rates)

    It's really not comparable. All indie crews have to do is satisfy themselves-- making a customer happy is a lot harder.

    A lot of indie stuff is made without paying people too.

    Which is cool! But I established the studio to give the people around me work and some income.

    Especially when so much of what we do is undervalued.

    Actually, I think its ********. If people don't get paid, it's a hobby.

    I agree.

    Let me qualify that, "which is cool if they want to commit their time and expertise freely."

    .. and I guess why the comparison between a priced service and indie budgets were strange to me.
