As a change from my regular lunch routine, today I decided to venture into the nearby A&B sound. (Canada’s version of Sam Goody) As I strolled lazily around, and I noticed something… on all of the televisions, I saw 3 different movies being played, all of which are primarily known for thier CG achievements: Shrek, ToyStory 2, and Lord of the Rings. Until today, I have always looked at CG as an art form struggling to define itself. I see this in the way many ‘traditional’ artists in ‘traditional’ art forms speak about CG. Today was a eye opener for me. CG is not a defined art form, its a diverse one.
For those few ‘traditional’ artists that fear CG is replacing thier jobs I say this: “I dont want your job. I want the seat next to you!”
The final kicker… As I was leaving the store to go back to work, I heard someones cellphone ring. A man in his late 40’s answers it. The ringtone? Final Fantasy.
P.S. We are everywhere!
