Lynda interviews poet and scholar Noah benShea

When I first heard Noah benShea speak at our locally organized TEDx in Santa Barbara, I didn’t meet him in person. Rather, he was projected on the large screen, captured in a series of thought-provoking video monologues that worked as interstitials between the live conference sessions:

Most of the attendees and I found these videos riveting, so I was happy to meet Noah in person many months later. He agreed to come in to our studios for an interview. I recommend you check out the TEDx video first, and then if you enjoyed them, watch our interview to get to know a bit about the man behind the poetry.

Wild about Harry

wildharryA noteworthy new Creative Inspirations video installment has been released today on the Online Training Library. Harry Marks is considered by many to be the godfather of broadcast design.

More than any other individual, he changed television by doing things with graphics that had never been attempted before. Not only did he pioneer the use of emerging imaging technologies, but he did so with style and reason. His pioneering work in the field of CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) brought him into collaboration with many other industry pioneers, including Douglas Trumbull, Robert Abel, Carl Rosendahl (whose company evolved into DreamWorks Animation), and Dale Herigstad (who is also the subject of a different Creative Inspirations).

In the early ’80s, Harry had the idea of bringing together people who work in the disparate fields of technology, entertainment, and design, so he partnered with Richard Saul Wurman and the TED Conference was born. This installment of Creative Inspirations takes viewers on a historic journey through the extraordinary career of Harry Marks.
