The Envelope

"No matter how automated things get, there is always a craft involved. We get better at this stuff, and it becomes more and more automated; but that doesn’t make the job any easier — it just means that we are freed from that particular task, so we can spend more time on some other aspect. When computers first came around, I heard time and time again that they were going to make effects easier and faster. But they haven’t. Computers allow us to push the envelope further; but at each new level, the process takes just as long and is just as hard.”
