An exploration of the process of creation. We live in a time where technology and inspiration are more readily available and accessible than ever before. That being said we also live in a time that mostly highlights the successes of projects and process. In this particular talk Michael wants to touch on the process of creation with technology at VT Pro, to further explore a full circle approach to inspiration and creation where often times our next project is inspired by something learned in the process of creating something else.

By exploring what went wrong and what went right in a number of different projects he’s created, Michael will touch on points where inspiration can be found in this world of seemingly endless technology; the importance of collaboration; what can be learned from the moments that don’t necessarily go as planned; and how often projects come close to failure than the audience ever knows. Lastly he wants to touch on the process of finding personal inspiration to inspire an audience, and the momentum to push further that comes from their energy.


Things often don’t go as planned, but often that’s the fun part.
