Nature and technology conspired to make this almost absurdly easy. I'm continually bowled over by the ever-expanding range of creative tools within reach of the average person. Did you know you can download full-blown 3D animation software for free? I just found out last week.

I know! I was just thinking earlier about how much time it took to go through tapes and grab just the clips needed by playing them in real time. And how much space they took up relative to what I had!

I honestly can't imagine starting under those circumstances now, but then "now" involves expectations for the other stuff I need to get done that largely also hinge on tools we could only imagine then. *headshake*
