While working for a major US retailer I developed an animation that is, 
let us say, somewhat critical of the way management has changed things 
since the founder died.

I finished this animation in January of 2011, but I kept it off-line 
until I was accepted at my new job, at which point I put the animation 
on YouTube.

Really funny and clever! And with motion-blur ;-)  Nicely done.

I would guess... WAL-MART. Especially with poor ol' 'Sam' in the casket. But
Wal-Mart's Made-In-China policy certainly isn't *new.*

Did you do the final assembly of the animation completely in POV-Ray?

Cute.. Only complaint I personally have with it is the joke people call 
"R-rate". Most of it amounts to, "Oh my god, they showed something on 
film that wouldn't get a fashion magazine banned!", or, "Gosh! They used 
language that is common place, instead of going out of their way to make 
people talk like.. no one ever has, other than certain language police." 
Well.. that and violence. But, the joke is, you can put more of that 
into a film, and not get an R, but show some skin, or say something more 
non-hyper-PC than "Damn", and they will slap one on it.

If you where talking about say.. NR, or M, I might see the point. 
Though, some of the reasons for things getting released with an NR, are 
even stupider than the ones that get things rated R. :p

I swear I have seen this, or something extremely similar, somewhere before.
And probably years ago.

I'm not the only one then.

If there was something along this line before, I hadn't seen it.  I got 
the idea from an editorial cartoon I saw around 2002-3.

About 20 years ago (shortly after Sam Walton died), they were still at 
least trying to source American-made products.  At some point between 
then and now, they switched, to the point that they strongly suggested 
to suppliers that they move their operations to China.

I got the image for the globe on-line, and the Arkansas map on-line as 
well.  Everything else is POV-Ray, including all fades, wipes, titling, 
and motion-blur.  I used CMPEG (which will be turning 20 this year) for 
the video encoding.

Regards,
John

How _did_ you do the motion blur?  I'm always looking for some POV secrets to
steal for my own film projects... ;)
