The Use of Artifice in your Craft is Virtuous
Here’s the talk that I gave at Google Zeitgeist this week at the conference. I talk about “our struggle” — that is, the struggle that many of us that enjoy post-processing have to endure. I know many of you are with me on this one!
Google Zeitgeist was great fun – it was interesting to hear talks from people like JJ Abrams, Morgan Spurlock, Bill Clinton, Larry Page, Sean Penn, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and more – their talks are all coming online soon too.
Images from the talk
A lot of people came up after the talk and asked me about different images. Below, I’ll paste some of the more popular ones:
Above: A Ratcliff Neo-Rockwellian Christmas
Above: An old, crumbling and vegetation-covered section of the Great Wall of China
Above: The TRON of Beijing

Here’s one of the images that was used as a background during the Zeitgeist event. It was really cool to see JJ Abrams (and others) give their talks in front of this background… so surreal… it was actually kind of like being in a dream. I watch a lot of JJ’s work (haven’t seen it all but watched Lost, Alias, Super 8, Star Trek), but to see him up there in front of this… was just weird and awesome! And then, he even mentioned me during his talk and my heart skipped a beat!
