TEDxCincy - Ben Nicholson - A Re-imagining of the Creative Cultural Future

About Ben Nicholson: Ben grew up wanting to be a Marine Biologist—but a complete inability to understand organic chemistry and a found love of telling stories landed him in the video business. Currently employed at Lightborne, a media post and production studio, Ben has done stints in a variety of roles and facilities. Since Joining Lightborne, Ben has overseen the development of a once one-man motion design department into a fully staffed global creative force. Ben has directed and animated both live-action and animated national ad campaigns, music videos and tour visuals. At Lightborne, Ben is the dreamer and the technical limit pusher who is always looking for a new way to not only execute motion design but also to display it. This want comes from years of prior experience working on media for Disney rides, robotic projection screens, rock shows and just about every other surface where video should not be seen. Creative collaboration is the fuel for his fire, and he loves helping clients execute, grow and implement their vision. When Ben is not working, he is gardening with his beautiful wife and helping love and wrangle his three children. You can often find him in the kitchen cooking meals for his friends. With 12 years of experience in the motion design world, Ben brings a technical and artistic eye that only time and fire can bring, and continues to love making the impossible possible. About TEDxCincy: It is movement that cannot be stopped. Rhythm that does not slow. It is your own will operating at its greatest force. On October 7, 2010 TEDxCincy uncovered PASSION, the energy behind life's most fearless pursuits.

About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
