Some VJ's are already experts at motion graphics, fine art etc and I think this area will see a great increase in this activity just like video art did when the portapak came about from the late 60s due to cheapness and availibility of equipment. I recently visited the RCA in London and was very excited by the fact they now teach performance video in their Communication Art & Design MA course. People really are beginning to see VJing as a credible form of video media within art.
VJing, although pefect for use within the (broadly speaking) context of fine art, graphic design or illustration, does not grant you these skills, in the same way a set of paints or a copy of photoshop wouldn't. They only come (to the VJ) when these practices are learned themselves and brought to work in relation to VJing, or video as a whole.
You don't need an MA by a LONG shot but if your really into it, why not do something about it, even a short course at a local arts centre - drawing, photography, animation, film-making, sculpture, writing etc, etc it doesn't matter. Learn creative processes and bring them to VJing.
There's nothing wrong with anyone VJing, don't get me wrong (and especially not if it gets you on the road to creativity as a way of life) but if you're serious about pushing the scene forwards in a creatively high minded way you really want skills that transcend knowledge of resolume or your equipment.
That said, an increase in the availability of equipment will mean more people overall can VJ, which will probably see a proliferation mediocre VJs with little or no talent, design or otherwise - Which is true of anything when mainstream culture gets its mitts on it.
In conclusion, I think there will be an explosion in VJing at both ends with a marked difference between 'good' and 'bad', 'high' culture and 'low'/popular culture occurences, which we're not too far off from today.
Of course there is 'bad' art/design in 'high culture' (for want of a better term) and there is 'good' art/design in popular culture - Tibor Kalman springs to mind as one of the most important graphic designers in recent time who had no formal design training - as I am sure a lot of good will come of VJing within popular culture. But as a general rule, I think the realy good sh8t (can I swear?) is going to come from the people with some kind of training in the creative arts.
I had no idea I was going to write so much and I hope I've not upset some people, I don't mean to, but that's what I think.
