Would you be happy to have the Cormac series made as a CGI animated series, for TV? Would you be happy with not having actual oomans acting except as voice overs?

It all depends. If you check out Blur you'll find that with their new 'Face Robot' they're coming up with some very realistic humans. Give it a few more years (especially with the success of Avatar) and you probably won't be able to tell the difference.

Let's also not forget that I'm one of the contributors the new Heavy Metal movie (that is if they use my stuff) so maybe we'll be seeing some of my characters as CGI anon, and I've certainly no objection to that.

blur are awesome, their work on halo wars first caught my eye (featured heavily in that trailer) but if you haven't seen them check out their mass effect 2 trailer:

which is their most recent (and best) work yet, and has the best ending...

and their earlier star wars: the old republic trailer:

the mass effect one in particular could give you some ideas on how to handle your stuff in film, neal.

Just watched them Jebel. There's also Dante's Inferno story trailers there that loo damned cool ... or rather, hot.

Incidentally, one thing do add from Tim Miller of Blur, regarding Avatar: "We did all the opening spaceship shots too...."

They must thank god for the games industry. Quite a few of those were games trailers.
