Richard Williams ascended into the constellation of animation masters long ago, and his star will shine forever. His passing got me thinking though... He was known for being uncompromising, insistent on achieving his own unique vision in his projects. He gave us true marvels, but one might argue, what more could he have created had he bent a little? Been more of a company man? Could he have classed up the industry a bit, or would it just have cheapened his artistry? I don't have the answer, but it's something to think about.
