I applaud your initiative. We've been contemplating doing a similar short animation/graphics approach to explaining the incentive for the NM Film Doc but would GREATLY welcome your efforts to make this happen and perhaps we could use it as part of our documentary, which is now just about complete in terms of acquisition and headed into editorial. We have numerous on-camera testimonials/perspectives of what the rebate represents but agree ... to make it simple, succinct and visual is the way to impact a larger audience. Data would need to include not just tax returned to state but economic impact... and I know from other threads that there is much disagreement on what "economic impact" truly represents. I think a few different graphics - animated charts, timelines, etc. would serve to explain the conflicting data better than talking heads.
Seeing some of the flash animations done in a gaming workshop demo at NMSU last week, I spoke with some folks down there (Derek Fisher, LaMaia Vaughn) that might be able to get some animation students to help work on this as well.
Keep me in your loop please, thank you.
