[Walter Soyka] "[Bill Davis] "And in ways that those competitors CERTAINLY can't do if they have to keep their focus on a shrinking (albeit high end) market such as episodic TV and feature shops."

This isn't my market, so I really don't know -- but how is this shrinking? I know that big traditional post facilities are hurting, but aren't smaller shops picking up tons of work here? There are more television channels than ever, they all want fresh content, and TV viewership still dominates video consumption [link].

It certainly isn't. Television production is vast compared to where it was a quarter of a century ago. And over the last decade--though we've been rocked by strikes and economic downturn--we've produced, IMHO, some of the best television ever produced. Cable Channels serve niche markets like never before, with very high-quality programing. There are all kinds of new forms of distribution--some competing, some complimentary--and in general, we have a world population that enjoys being entertained by professional show folk. Movies are healthy as well. I see nothing to suggest that either is a shrinking business.
