	Sort of.  Don't forget ILM is owned by Lucas and DD, over the years, has had 
directors owning the ship.  This means obviously they get "special deals and 
treatments", which could be conceived as competition.  Really, in the end, 
these huge movies just need bodies to get the work done, and as usual the 
bean counters want the cheapest they can get and still get good product.  
Whether or not that company has a division that's working on another 
blockbuster probably wouldn't matter to them at all.  It's no different than 
ILM working on projects for two different studios simultaneously.

	Cheers,

	J.C.
