Just kidding. The only thing the facilities do to each other is to beat each other over the heads and shoulders and try to get in a killing blow. I can cite example after example in which the worst human behavior is exhibited by one facility against another. They see life and the world as a zero sum game, if they win then the others must lose and vice versa.
Well, I was wrong. To my amazement, three important facilities in animation and visual effects collaborated in an important area for years but they kept it quiet because of their inherent modesty and good will. Their collaborative efforts were directed for the greatest good of society and in the greatest traditions of American industry which aspires to grossly violate labor laws and destroy the economic well-being of their workers.
Thus we have proof that computer animation (and visual effects) facilities can work together towards a common goal, at least when it involves crime. So maybe my friend's proposal needs to be rewritten so that it incorporates some gross violation of law and ethics, and then maybe we can get the facilities to cooperate for the common good. That might work.
