Eezacque- I am indeed interested in movie making, but only to a certain degree, I guess. Like most people, I enjoy I coming up with my own stories (in this case cartoon stories) and bringing them to life in the real world. However, the physical product would most likely take the form of a graphic novel instead of feature-length film. Being able to direct a shot by way of a few pen strokes is just fine for me and would probably bring about more satisfaction than using an actual camera.
So, yes, creating pretty pictures is important. And I would like to be involved in film, either by boarding or creating some very short shorts.
