A 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.
