Equine Video/SyntheToonz was a cooperative effort between
my fiance, Lynn Chandler, and myself from 1993 to 1995.
I think the official registered name was
SyntheToonz, Inc. and Equine Video was the "fictitious name".
(The official vs. fictitious name
situation may be reversed. I'm a little fuzzy on these details,
since she did all the paperwork and everything was in her name for
a number of reasons -- the most important being that I
wanted her to have something of her very own for
once in her life.)
Equine Video was the name used when we were video taping
horse shows, collecting footage for horse brokerage, and other
SyntheToonz was the name used when we lent our editing
suite out to other videographers, when we did editing work for
other horse people, and when we did non-horse related computer
graphics work. It means "Synthetic Cartoons". The original
idea, "CyberToonz", was already taken by a company in
Milwaukee. The Synthetic Cartoonz concept was chosen,
since we were planning on moving into full-blown, character animation.
