“It is today possible to realize the most impossible and improbable things.” – Georges Méliès
Visual effects afford us the opportunity to see worlds we would have never seen before, to experience the greatness of our imagination and the imagination of others. “To boldly go where no man has gone before”…okay, just kidding on that last one. That was a Star Trek reference. Not only visual effects, but the technology of today allows us to create so many amazing things we were not able to create twenty or thirty years ago.
As creatives, I think we have to look past things “as we know them” and create from the unknown. Creativity, in its deepest meaning, means to present new ideas or to expound more on existing ideas. With today’s technology, almost anything one can envision can become a reality. From web designers to video editors to motion graphics artists to writers, the ability to make our imagination a reality is more prevalent now than ever before in the history of mankind.
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” – Dr. Seuss
