I Wonder if There'll Ever Be Children's Moveis that Aren't too Unrealistic!
Jess had with a few colleagues made a cartoon that was sort of about itself. More precisely it was about some dinosaurs who became skeptical when shown a cartoon about dinosaurs. In it, the dinosaurs roared about that those writers of such cartoons didn't care about “actual facts about us, about our lifes, about our hardships!”
The children whom the cartoon was being tested on were laughing enough for Jess and the others to begin to feel they could fairly easily consider it done. Thereby they were perhaps going to have it be released as a merchandise for those who saw their competitor's dinosaur cartoons as really funny. Giggling at this, they began to create a marketing strategy.
Meanwhile the children finished watching it, and began leaving the little room that had been made into a children's cinema for the purpose. They didn't mind, especially since they found them to till be rather amused by it as they were leaving. One of the kids, named Esmeralda, tried to ask one of Jess' colleagues why the dinosaurs didn't treat the man who had made the cartoon in the cartoon better. “Because,” she explained, “he seemed after all to have seen them as his friends when he asked them to watch it.” Esmeralda's half-brother and a friend of his stood by and seemed interested in what the answer would be.
One man, named Fred, said that “The cartoonists don't feel like caring to portray reality as it is, and that's why they're angry!”
“Exactly!” a female coworker, Anna, said. “Thereby they made the dinosaurs feel embarrassed, so that they couldn't feel happy about what they saw! On the other hand, they could have shown them another version of their story, one where they didn't seem ridiculously happy and smiling all the time! Then, perhaps, those small dinosaurs that he showed it to could have more easily felt satisfied with themselves, despite being portrayed like that in the first place!”
Esmeralda thereby wondered why the satisfied dinosaurs wouldn't be there and fake that they were happy about it, so that those who produced such a film “wouldn't,” as she said it, “be able to tell wether or not it they were cool about it?”
Anna smiled at her and said: “Esmeralda! It's not our problem that those weird creatures might be trying to fake something like that! Instead it's they who should be grateful to us that we at least portray them fairly well and lifelike!”
Esmeralda looked a bit dissatisfied, but still promised to “try to think of it like that!” She looked at her half-brother and said: “Simon, let's go! I bet they don't think my father, who is a producer of such films is a fairly, even, popular fellow with all those dinosaurs!”
Simon looked at her as she spoke and then glanced at his friend. “I bet their' too obnoxious to figure out that they are not the only ones who can become popular with the public! ... So how about you, Steven?” he looked at his friend again.
“How about me what?!”
“I mean do you feel that we should go now, or tend to stay around just for a little answer to why they feel our parents' production is not realistic enough?”
“No, I think we can go now! ... Or actually, perhaps we should ask why they feel they aren't stuck up about it.”
Jess broke in and said: “Look kids! We're not into seriously threatening their business or reputation, if that's what you think! We're simply kidding around a little!”
“Alright,” the kids said. “But how come,” Simon's friend asked, “do they seem to be the one's who needs to be kidded with, when they don't even seem as unsuccessful as you guys?!”
“That's exactly why we feel like provoking them about it! Don't you see? The company of her father and other acquaintances of both you and her, I suppose, won't be harmed, at least to the extent they realize that we also have a capacity to perhaps join them, and become their coworkers!”
“Then why,” Esmeralda asked, “do you feel like taunting them about the dinosaurs that they rely on for their business?”
“I think we need to provoke them about the kinds of things that seem a bit important, so that they'll realize we don't feel ignorant of what they're dealing with!”
“I guess,” Steven proclaimed, “that they don't feel like bothering with those who don't annoy them enough to perhaps be proclaimed their enemies, then!”
Esmeralda looked at him. She seemed a bit puzzled, and troubled. “I think we can work out something to stop them all from feuding! But I feel there's not any point in not feuding with those people unless they hint to us - I mean my father and so - something about how they want be into cooperating with them - I mean like us!”
Jess looked at her. “I feel that they don't have to know yet what we prefer! But there's not any point, I think, in pretending they're all that interesting as partners! But, I want them to know that if they make an offer, then we will take it seriously!”
“I feel,” Esmeralda answered, “that there's no business in feeling that we aren't the superior ones, since we have a business in the first place! Thereby I will say that even though they have the capacity, they (that is you) will not try to aspire for us to see why they're provoking us! I will say that it's me interrogating them (that is you) that provided the opportunity for us - I mean my father and his friends - to have a good notion of why they are being ridiculed!”
“I guess,” Jess said thoughtfully, “that a cunning kid such as the one I'm talking to will not be so silly that she fakes that we didn't invite her here - partly in order to see to it that she got her chance to form an opinion about it! I suppose also that you other two, you two boys, will find it that she - and you two as well - have gotten a chance to speak to us about it. So how come they should have to think we're into being their enemies?”
“I feel,” Steven replied, “that there isn't any enterprise in letting her make her judgements by herself!” eh pointed at Esmeralda while finishing that statement. “Thereby I feel that Esmeralda's father, and his cousin, my uncle, shouldn't be told that you've been fair enough unless you say to me and her and Simon what they will be about, those styles that you can perhaps introduce to us! I mean it's not enough that we who are kids see that example of it! I say it would be enough to tell them you're onto something! But we can't be telling our relatives that they should trust those people who are likely to become their competitors - even though they invited us to see one small example - or isn't it? - of what they can do!”
