In a commentary that generalizes around these issues, Bruce Jacobs of Twin Cities Public Television writes that it's not always appropriate to pursue technical excellence with the fervor that should be reserved for moral causes. He uses the word "elegance" to describe the best choice given competing costs.

As one who practiced the "High Production" craft for many years, I very much agree with Dennis on this one. Broadcast television has such an in-grained set of production standards that it has been almost impossible to breakthrough this shiboleth and convince producers there are other, less costly content creation forms for them to adopt. Wonderful opportunities await those who break through these self-limiting shackles of tradition and venture beyond the boundaries of production standard conformity. Let's hope public broadcasting is part of this band of hardy souls!
