"Their sponsors and they don't and here's the thing they don't have sponsors they are funded solely on people sending them money. If you send them money. I'd say hey loved the show you know. Please tell my wife. I think she's she's beautiful. And i'm the luckiest gone planet. They'll say okay coming in for prospective again. He wants to say that is. He thinks his wife is beautiful. And he's the luckiest got on the planet and chris. Thanks thanks for the one hundred dollars to help. Support the shop. They spent quite a bit of time in every episode thanking the the listening the listeners. And they've they've gone one step further to call those listeners producers because what is the producer do well they pay for everything. And so we're producers now if you've listened to show you're a producer and they get a lot of input they have listeners in every one of the three letter agencies in in dc. They have people that work on nuclear subs our listeners. For producers they have people in every branch government every branch or are they doing video. No no no. They don't want to be. But mostly because adam adam has a A bit of threats. That manifest itself We're dick's and he hates himself on camera. Which is weird. Because we all know from mtv but yeah yeah. I gotta say. I gotta say i get the complaints that people have i do. I do understand that. But i've listened to them extensively for the last thirteen years extensively and i gotta say it's the only source of news i even remotely trust. Well say what you guys. So what did what did. What was the deal. Joe rogan signed with with spotify. Then you get like five hundred million bazillion dollars but he had to move to texas to get something check now. I just wonder. I wonder why they didn't get that kind of funding in. Would they have taken it to move. Powerhouse rogan is it really thirteen years. Oh no no no. They don't have the listeners. Rogan has a giant audience. A giant is he. Joe rogan is the johnny carson of our era of this of this era. Yeah somebody somebody goes on rogan. Everybody knows about it. That's everybody's seen know he's the he's a monster. any has a very simple format. He just talks and ask questions actually listened. He doesn't have to be interrupted. By stupid commercial breaks for you know more pills and pharmaceuticals to pay for everything. So he can let he can let is nothing more frustrating than watching a good discussion as i say this regard they can we gotta get outta here watching a good conversation have to get cut off. Let me let me pause you right there. We gotta take a commercial break real quick. You'd be smart back after these messages from pfizer. I i love that model though. I mean you you know we. We got it. Yeah we'll wrap this up but you know this the the whole podcasting model you know even even above youtube. I think is really really interesting to me. You know just the way the democratization of opinions you know whether you agree with them or not the fact that the gate is open and they can be out there just like the definition of free speech. So i love it. I love it. It's chris fenwick if if people wanna catch up with you and follow you or higher you or otherwise harass. You were go. Well if you wanna hire me go to slice aditorial dot com if you wanna hear my Ridiculous musings about our industry. It would be crispin on twitter. And if you just wanna see my woodworking stuff and family stuff that purely just my personal life. That's on instagram. Because it's not that personal. If i put it on instagram his notes and it's chris renwick on instagram. I'm chris renwick awesome cool man. Thank you for doing this. We gotta do this again. Let's make this a regular occurrence. This could be every five to six years no matter what it's happening. No no no five to six weeks of then. Yeah this has to be our little personal bite on no agenda so do you don't have to use any of that stuff if you don't want to use it i i enjoy it at all. The twist flow is is a non edited stream-of-consciousness. So you know my audiences are me. They know what i know. So all right all right man. Well you have a good weekend and be safe.

"Yes that's the one. I was listening to. And then he did another one. That was like really kind of right wing or some kinda weird and polarizing and to political. I think i watched a couple of episodes of it and it was just like it doesn't agree with me but it was just like to conspiratorial and all this stuff and i was like you know i if i wanna see that i could turn on the news. So his source code was cool. I'm going to get. There's your edit point if you wanna cut this out source code cool so pausing please record Okay we're recording. You can decide if you don't want to use it. But i just wanted to give you the edit point there so i'm actually a huge fan of the nogent show. Dan and i and i will defend it briefly. So the no agenda show started in two thousand and seven i believe and it was a byproduct of him adam and john devora working together at a company called me o. In san francisco and they used to go out to dinner and just chat a one day. They said we should record these conversations and in the beginning it was just them on the world With no agenda with no agenda now it has become it has grown and evolved into something different than that origin but the core thing of what the no agenda podcast is is that it is two guys with obvious tech backgrounds looking looking at the news and looking at the news as delivered by multiple news outlets and then deconstructing it And saying oh okay. Well this was set on this newscast. But let's look at who's who's advertising on that show and this was said on this newscast and let's likud advertising there and then you start seeing patterns and you start seeing that certain networks. Lean one way or a little bit different. I'm not talking about fox and cnn. Leaning i'm talking about like little things like anna john cd borek in two thousand in little twelve. I think had a had a website going where he was the lead up to the election or he was making he was saying. Nbc is obviously pro. This this candidate and cbs leans here in abc. But but what. They're really good at is taking part the news and also and as an american as americans. We're not good at this looking at news from around the world. Yeah and taking taking it all apart and seeing. What's really going on. I will tell you. I have one hundred percent given up on listening to the mainstream media news anymore. What i'd much rather do is to continue to pay those guys to read the news for me. Listen to the news for me. I mean these guys. Listen to hours of c-span a week to get you know. I was talking about getting at live. And they're getting the real deal and then they break it down and they'd show you what's actually happening news for you. It's a lot different than what you hear listening to. Cnn or fox. Or cbs It's your iced honest news. I stopped listening. I think it was during the the the election cycle you know. With trump got elected. It was like because remember how hot it got towards the end there like mudslinging and hate in this and you know it was just it was just yeah. It was too much. I started listening to all news. And i cut out all political podcasts. And stop i muted people. That were grandstanding on facebook. You know like you should just your life will be better armed. One of the things that they talk about one of the things that they talk about is and i gotta agree is that their mission is to take take apart the news and explain it because of that. What is the news. Been for the last four years it's been about. let's tear down donald trump. Let's exposed al was talking about. Donald trump was explain. What a monkey ass hat. Donald trump is. Okay that's what they talk about. They'll they'll go through. They'll explain it and they'll and they'll show times when he's being misquoted or I love this phrase. You're being accurate. But not precise yes. He said that but he said a lot more to you. Know and they'll they'll lay that stuff out and win in. The problem is is if you do that. You're immediately labeled a trump apologist and learn your problem though right. That's the that's true. That's the problem though. Because i think life was much simpler when you and i were growing up right because it was you could trust the news. Whatever they told you is what happened was i think it probably wasn't but we thought you could trust head brokaw and all those people that were telling news right. Whatever mr brok. We've we could trust them and it was like the news is coming on. Abc happened oh crap okay. Abc having Now i don't feel like we have. Maybe maybe no agenda is it. But i don't feel like we have a trusted source. We have biased news sides. we podcast. it's just a world of bias which means if there's so much bias out there you can't trust anybody so then leads to stress. 'cause you don't know what the hell is going on in the world so and if you wanna get yeah you can't spend all your time doing what would Devora and curry do sifting through the tea leaves and trying to make sense of it. No one has time for that right. I don't even. I don't even have time to actually listen to. They produce six hours a week. Two three hour shows a week now about four hours of that is actually reporting or would they call media deconstruction. Quite a bit of it is them.

"Here's a hypothetical crispin way. So here's a you got a self driving car the tesla and it's a man in a black man. Run out in front of you. Which one do i. There's only enough room to but you have an ai. That's been programmed by someone who's racist but you didn't know that they racist auto driving that car and it's got to make the decision on whose life is worth more. Should i veer left or right or you know. Maybe it's augist old person versus ios a great thanks zach woman versus man who gets run over right or do you have multiple markers. Oh it's a black woman versus a white man. Let's run on doing this. house again. To say is technology you cannot stop it. You cannot stop. it's and it's those. I think the point as those kinds of details and nuances are being figured out right now as we speak and we will about him for decades. Maybe you and i won't care because we'll be on the front porch drooling but you know in a couple of decades. These questions that they're coding. Today are going to govern what happens in the feud in right in the summer of nineteen eighty six. I was working at a tv station in the bay area and we had a corporate client. Hewlett packard come in and they rented six weeks of studio time and all they wanted was a chalkboard. Maybe it was a whiteboard. I can't remember if whiteboards were thing in nineteen eighty six three cameras dude standing there with a law and we had a stack of sixty minute umass three quarter inch tapes and for eight hours. A day we'd stick a tape in it record on cameron q. The guy and he would say. I will remember this name to the day i die. He said i love. My name is been kumar and today we will talk about. And from that point on i did not recognize any words that he said oh well and he was talking about artificial intelligence in nineteen eighty six and and i think i've done a little bit of looking into it and i think he's like one of the foremost ai people ever or one of the first or whatever but we were talking about artificial intelligence in nineteen eighty six and this guy would talk and like five minutes before the end of the tape running out. We'd show five minutes Finish up something. And then we'd wrap them up and he'd go. We will be back with another video. Fade to black. Keep it another tape. And i'm ready to go like and eight hours a day for six weeks. We did this and this guy was just unloading his brains with everything. He knew about artificial intelligence at the time scary man. It is scary like yeah. There's so much there's so much stuff that is changing right now. Even in software your intimate is everybody. I know it with software and how things work and the limitations and all that cool that all that good and bad stuff. But i i did this interview Mid last year with one of the chief artificial intelligence architects at skyline software. And i think it was the latest releases skyline where they had introduced some ai feature. We're talking about that feature but at the end of the interview. I asked him where things are going was a future look like like for far down the line. Excuse me when you let off the chain. What does it look like. And he said he envisions a world and this is apparently being tested. now but where. You could sit in front of your computer and say like chris. Chris renwick could say yes. I need a beach with the blue-sky maybe two or three wispy clouds. In the sky there is avi formation of seagulls flying to the southeast. There is a beautiful woman laying on the beach. she's brunette. She has on a red bikini and she has a fruity drink next to her and there are three other people. Walking along the waterline in the distance. Make it it'll just listen to you and create. That seem for you. Then you could go and manipulate it and say well. Yeah the water. The tide's out a little further and we'll move the tide out. You know what this couple of examples of that number one. Have you ever seen the movie wag the dog I feel like. I've seen that dustin Zilog one of those government conspiracy. It's really kind of. It's really more about how in the modern era we probably shouldn't trust the news Yeah you think. The the story is The president is about to be reelected. Were weeks away from the election and a bit of bad news comes out and they Higher dustin hoffman to come in to manufacturer a news events to distract the public away from the this bad thing that happened and we just have to distract people for a couple of weeks and it's fascinating moved but there's a scene in that where they're doing kind of what you're saying this woman. This young girl played by. Kirsten dunst by the way is on a sound stage. And it's all blue and dustin hoffman. In the control. Room he goes. Let's put a village behind her more. It'd be something more a shot up like distracted opening scene. Thank you Great movie greg. They're gonna put this on the beard again. I'm drawing a blank. Destin happen and that guy. I i can't see me on his face in. Yeah so anyway they him they they come up with this this scheme to distract the news for a couple of weeks until the election but the senior talking about where you know..

"Green wall or i can go hold on. Hey can i get your opinion. Yeah brings so. I got pink face green wall. Or i got old on thrown out. No i wanna be acting for the feels. That are listening to this audio. Chris fenwick onscreen showing off that he has colored lights behind him on the wall that he can control what i want to know. Do you like the blue or the green better because The blue better because of the flag back there and get it makes you pup better yep so but the whole point of that is is what i the reason i did. That is for the color contrast right. And yes you can have. Brightness contrast duh for example. I would i would have encourage you to buy a share. That didn't go up to your head and wasn't black because they know your head would pop against the the off white wall back like this like this. Yeah right yeah. The cheers massive dude. What is gamers chair. this is a here. come on what are you old. This is a guess but like the gift. Thank you so you know. I have to use it. So the alternative here is if i lose all the color and this is you know. It's not horrible. But i like the color contrast you know. Yeah yeah i think. I like the blue globe bitter. It looks it looks it makes you pop out instantly is much better. I think the comment about the flag is a good one too. It does feel a bit more patriotic. Make that. I made this fourteen pieces of wood. Everyone of those stripes is separate. Oh look at that. The you made that so you have a would just completely topic. But you may have a woodworking shop. Yeah and it just like a censor may ever since i moved out to sacramento and i had a garage for the first time in my life. It fifty five years old or whatever fifty four years old. I was ed the night we got the keys to the house of standing in the garage and i was like this is gonna be fun. 'cause i'm like in junior high i was all about woodshop but i've lived in apartments and condos ever since so. Yeah i was like oh this will be fun so i get a renewed a a hobby from a long long time ago and it's been fun. Yeah sorry tell you. It's really cool breeze. My i had a you know. Obviously most of us are a lot of us. Took would woodshop rate in high school. So i did that. And i remember being bitten by the whittling bug for like two summers really is i. I remember seeing this. Maybe it was my grandfather or somebody. I remember them taking a piece of wood and this sitting on the front porch and you know messing with it and then suddenly and figuring you know like you made that we just a knife and a piece of wood. I want to do that so you know at that time. I wanna say maybe twelve twelve ish in that range twelve thirteen probably so yeah and i still have that stuff boy i totally did i totally. I'd got some deep slices deeper slicing my finger. From cutting matt's photo i slip. I slit the tip of this finger off like diagonally right. There is this didn't even know what's always read stuff on my matt. God injured to the bone. It didn't go to the boat and it grew back so you know it wasn't that bad but it was. Yeah it was like six to twelve weeks of you know. Remember my error. And i never had never did that again. Much more respect for matt cutting gear after that resume right right right so this up man. So what what. Where do we get to so. Is it like from a technical standpoint like we said at the beginning you can't ever be one hundred percent accurate on color right because of biology rods and cones because of technology. Every display is different. It's all subjective. So is there. Should there be a reexamining of the human color palette and then we come up with like a standard you know. That's not that. Founding father line talked about the thing for me. It's it's worth looking into it. Look at it look at your flesh on on a vector scoping final cut. I come over now. jetted to please I think the thing for me was the realization. It was the education you know. I learned more and i learned from these anecdotal events. You know the the one editing project which found to be very difficult and the striking fifty cent photo and. I think that. I think that for me to know that that is a possibility to know that Do i need to be more More objective and realize that. I might be pushing something the wrong direction. I might be exude. Exerting my racial bias on something you know just because i look at myself in the mirror. Every day doesn't mean everybody should look like me right. Yeah and so knowing that. That's the thing and an obviously it is. If you if. I'd had this discussion with you. Decades ago i would say no of course not but yet again. I totally screwed up. I totally screwed this up and so having that experience. I'm much more careful as i push. Pull things you know because color correction is a is a is a dangerous beast it really is. It's it's an. It's an imperfect science right. And the and i know you know i barely know. Two lead is so. I'm not the guy to be the expert on color correcting But i do know like we were saying i do know is subjective in your line of work especially if you're doing predominantly corporate work you know. They want they want at least probably more accurate or you. Let's say you have less creative freedom and liberty than you would. if you're creating a michael bay film right. the other. The other thing is is that in a corporate environment. You're editing video. Starring a person that quite possibly a lot of people in that company actually know who they are like rollo. Seen him the if she him in the cafeteria What he looks like what the hell. Who's an editor. The editor worked for any liebowitz lake. What's going on. I'm going down type going i. I think it's it's a super interesting. And there's one last thing. And i realized we're kind of wrapping up here and i wanted to mentioned earlier but for decades now especially in the broadcast television world and lines of blurred now with cinema cameras and whatnot such but for long tie. There was a sort of a general understanding that. And maybe i'm remembering this wrong. But i think i i don't think i am in the sony. World their cameras tended to be a little bit plus green. Maybe a little plus blue but definitely you'd always pull everything back now in today's day and age that would that would indeed be a lot. You know look up table where you say. I know the color value is coming in at this. But i really want you to show it to me at this And that's all i look on. The table is right. You were being facetious. You know what i was. I don't don't don't do that crap with me but Use them all the time bright but in but that was a common thing. It's like little too little too bluey green that direction was that technology thing. Was that a racial thing. On behalf of sony being a japanese company Right right do you do. Japanese people did japanese people. Just look better on sony cameras. Interesting remember there was. That was it sony or one of those larger camera. Companies was under fire a couple years ago. I wanna say for their. You know their face detection technology. That was less accurate on dark skin than it was a light skin. It's yeah i think it was just. There wasn't a as much contrast as they had experimented with or testing or is just bad code this bag. And what was the other thing yeah. The other controversy was around ai. And a i bias because you have artificial intelligence. That's making decisions based on skin tone or not on skin tone and if in yeah the discussion was i think the discussion was around machine. Learning and elon. Musk and self driving cars in the remember that so talking about that. Yeah yeah and and and the car making decisions on who's who and and how to react in a situation who life to save if it's you know it's deep man we're like it's sky met level deep at that point because it's real. It's scary like if you have a..

"Way it was that what was the didn't look human anymore. Okay they didn't it didn't look right and ultimately that's what we wanna do. Is we want to make something look aesthetically pleasing but also not draw attention to it so so what was it was it. Was it the horror. What why was it so off. And would you have had the same experience with white people or lighter. So that's the real question frederick. So i i realized that day so that they pulled all the Correction off the peace. And i did it again. I started from scratch. I got to the end. And i still didn't like it and then i'm googling how to color correct indian skin tones and like did find anything and and i was like what is wrong. What is the problem. And what i came up with the best i could come up with. Was that somewhere in my own personal psyche. This whiteboard from chicago was just trying to make everybody look like him. And and i. It was consciously doing and frankly that realization really didn't come to me for for years but but it would i struggled with and i didn't literally say why does this man not look caucasian and wasn't like that. There was your brain was like this is what skin tone. My brain is seeing this skin. Tone let's try to get close to that right. That's where it was going. Yeah maybe maybe. And then soon. After that i was walking through an airport. And i'm going to have you do a little google test or do you have enough screen real estate that you can open up a couple of google windows while while we're doing this i cannot. I don't have that. I don't have that level of technique. Okay well you're gonna you're gonna have to bear with me and just just use your imagination. You're and so. I was talking to an airplane. I could. i could bring up a screen euro. i'll bring it up it's called on google g. Okay we'll give you a search term smart search for fifty cent vibe and then click on the little image tab it just look at all the different photos. Okay so i'm walking through. I'm walking through an airport. And i go buy new stench and this image on the cover of by magazine now. It's one res. Weren't at a baseball cap. And i've noticed it either corner. My eye and striking it was like really used the term earlier it was emotional and i walked over and i picked it up and i was like why do i like this image out. Don't necessarily try and find that image. I just want you to look at all the different images of fifty sack when you search for fifty cents five and and this image was striking now one of the things they did against the number two image there so the number to one of the things they did. They overly whitened his eyes. And you know he's he's trying to look like a tough guy and you know whatever but look skin tone. It has this kind of. I'll call it a plus blue. Feel to it okay. Do you see it in the blacks. Yeah uh-huh yeah and see what i mean if you go back and i think that's part of what i what i found really striking so if you go back to the the page the head a bunch of images go go back a couple of pages and you look at all of the different images that pop up. Right here in my estimation gin white boy from chicago I see a lot of different colors. The one over on the side x with where it says curtis. He'd looks a little more yellow there. The initial one. It's definitely plus blue in the blacks The upper right corner of the main field. He's a little bit more orange. The color temperatures are all over the place. now some of that is our direction. I'd get it. Maybe it's the people working on it. I don't know. I don't know one hundred percent. Okay leave that tab open. Make a new tab. And i want you to search for a different person okay michelle pfeiffer the whitest of people ever the pfeiffer pfeiffer l. e. p. p. it'll it if it doesn't auto failure computers broken p. a. Pfi they're really. It won't know that. Maybe you're listening if i spell it wrong. We'll google fix me there. We go okay at not not wikipedia. Go click on the image tab up toward the top. Bingo in my estimation and maybe again maybe just as white boy from chicago. Most of those pictures about the same yeah yeah. I don't know what that means that most people that put images on the internet identified with show pfeiffer or. Maybe they're white. I don't know. But i think part of it is an unregistered in meaning almost subliminal Racial bias I also think that some of it might be technology. And i'd love to get your opinion on it. Have you noticed. I i agree and i you know some things. Some things came to mind while you were talking about that. I think There's multiple layers here right because one layer is completely subjective because it's color correction and it's completely subjective from a brain standpoint also from biology standpoint. We all have different numbers of rods and cones in our eyes we see perceived colored differently. You're red is not my read in. We can't we will never know what your it is. And you'll never know what my read is unless we can figure out how to swap is for some reason so there's that and then there's the technological side of it. I think where you know it's computers. All computers are rendering colors differently in the displays or different. You don't know if they're on a phone or a tablet or on a tv screen colors are all over the place and then also you know back to the biology piece of it. There's an infinite number literally. I would argue an infinite number of gradations between the darkest black person and the light skinned black person or the the irish zero mellon person all the way through to the tan. Italian that pass for black right so cecilia. How do you. How do you as editor pick one right right with all those variables out there. How do you pick. It's impossible. And i honestly think some of it. Some of it is a an unregistered And maybe maybe just a racist pick you know whatever. But i think most of the time it's like this unregistered racial bias. And i and. I think that that was part of my problem with these indian guys like i think i think i think somewhere inside. I was just trying to make more like me and they should not have had or if you little lighter how do i make you a little lighter friday wrong. How do i get you more light. You know yeah. Yeah no. I get it. Yeah and that's a that's a biased. Right even if consciously. I know what your brain isn't. It's not there right so i'm like your brain is trying to like figure out what looks good for the client. That's what your job is at the end of the day. How do i make the best work can for for this client. And how do i make these people look their best. That's what your brain is going. But there's you don't have you don't have a correct me if i'm wrong. You don't have a grounding or anybody has a grounding in the correct if there is a correct skin tone for anybody changes daily. Chris like if i go if i go outside and spend some time in the summit comeback initiate darker than i am right now i was super sunburn over the weekend so There now there is. There is something to this. Are you familiar. You know what a video way for monitor looks like you know what a history grande looks like. Of course absolutely no the parade scopes and you. I know you're familiar with a vector scope. Are you familiar with these. Things are i. Don't know how to use them. Okay that's a whole nother episode. On a vector scope going from the center of the vector up to about ten o'clock there's there will be an it's therein photoshop era at final cat. If you open it up you'll see learn. And that line is called the flesh tone lie and i am told by people much smarter than me that regardless of race.

"Little some interesting or different today for the info discussion with my friend. Chris fenwick If you have anything to do with final cut pro you know this guy he. He's one of those people that knows final. Cut pro and editing in general from the inside out backwards and forwards and all that. And he's you know. We'll we'll get into that. But chris reached out to me a couple of a about a week or so ago and pose a really interesting question us. He said you know what how do you. How do you color ballots for darker skin tones. Having problems with that. And this was this was on the heels of the whole simone biles controversy with any liebowitz and you know all that back and forth of they should have hired a black photographer to shoot her or should the photographers. The shot heard no or annie's people should they have known how to process and color correct for blacks hint so anyway so we decided to jump on and have this conversation and just talk like you know two people that like this stuff and see if there's a solution or maybe there is no solution but chris. Fenwick is these elite editor. Ed slice editorial and i'll put the links to all of this stuff in the show notes and the the description for this episode on youtube but follow him over there but but check out. This discussion is pretty. It's pretty interesting will be pretty interesting from the standpoint of just what's what in the in the real world of color correcting for other humans. Can we go here. We go starting to all right. Chris renwick welcomed this week in photo. Man how you doing. Hello mr johnson. I'm doing well. I'm doing really good. You know what we were talking before we started recording. And i got i got a page just from chatting just before regarding. Yeah where you do your hands okay. They'll always you know you're you're a wealth of information and your humble about it. Obviously which is why you get invited to speak at conferences. And all this other stuff and you'd probably have more work than you can deal with. But let's segue into that stuff that i talked about in the to color balancing for darker skin tones black people brown people etcetera but before we do that tells of about chris. Fenwick in slice editorial. What do you do in the world. And how are you helping. Keep spinning keep spinning it. All but right now. That's that's that's frightening.

Chris Fenwick If you have anything to do with final cut pro, you know this guy he he's one of those people that knows final cut pro and editing in general from the inside out backwards and forwards and all that and he's We'll get into that but Chris reached out to me a couple of the about a week or so ago and pose a really interesting question us. He said, you know what? How do you? How do you color ballots for darker skin tones? He was having problems with that and this was this was on the heels of the whole Simone biles controversy with Anti Liebowitz and. All that back and forth of they should hired a black photographer to shoot her or should the photographer shot heard? No or Annie's people? Should they have known how to process and color correct for blacks hint so anyway. So we decided to jump on and have this conversation just talk like you know two people that like this stuff and see if there's a solution or maybe there is no. Solution but Chris, which is these elite editor Ed slice editorial and I'll put the links to all of his stuff in the show notes and the the description for this episode on Youtube but follow him over there. But check out this discussion is pretty. It's pretty interesting. We'll be pretty interesting from the standpoint of just what's wet in the in the real world of color correcting for other humans. We go. Here we go starting to. All right. Chris. Renwick. Welcome to this week in photo man how you doing. Mr Johnson I'm doing well. Yes it's good. The I'm doing really good. You know what we were talking before we started recording. and. I got I. got a page just from chatting just. Before recording. Yeah Yeah where you do your hands. Okay. But always you know you're you're a wealth of information. You're humble about it. Obviously, which is why you get invited to speak at conferences and all this other stuff, and you'd probably have more work than you can deal with. But let's I want to segue into that stuff that that I talked about in the teas color balancing for darker skin tones, Black People Brown people, etc. But before we do that, tell us a little bit about Chris Renwick in slice editorial. In the world and how are you helping keep spinning? I don't think I help keep spinning all. Right. Now. That's that's that's frightening I I'm an editor and I tell people this all the time and they say Fascinating. What are you edit? I added a bunch of stuff you'd never want to watch. It's it's not that it's not that exciting. In the corporate communications corporate branding space. There is tons of work to do most people realize that whether it's photography or video or editorial like I do But frankly most of the stuff I work on, you'd Never WanNa Watch. It's not that exciting. It's a matter of fact I think the people that I make it for you know they're struggling to get their employees to had chip you know but but but the bottom line is it's a living and I've always said that to satisfy your own creative you know thing that you have to do. You're better off. I mean it's good that I don't rely on my job to do that and I'll. I'll tell you. That if you. If you try to be, you know to exude your best you know a Steven Spielberg George. Lucas. When you're doing my job, you're going to be a pain. Because you're GonNa have all these great ideas. I'm not saying the not good ideas, but they're not right for the project that you're working. And so You're better off. You're always better off serving the project and. Most of the stuff that I do, it's ahead he's talking and might be a graphic over shoulder that. Explains what he's talking about but I don't need seven different angles in tight close ups intention like no I don't need that and so if you WanNa do that you should totally do that. But doing on something you're producing and not that you're trying to get paid for. And It's it's just kind of a pet peeve of mine. You know you just keep keep your creative thing to to wear. It's a being asked for and I turned stuff out. That's what we do. It's not not really exciting but like I said, raise the Bill Corp video pays the bills you know keeps keeps keeps the Earth Spin and keeps spinning right there. That's absolutely absolutely and I'll tell you three a four days after Governor Newsom shut down the state of California were based. we were in production. and. We were in production because. On I kind of reminded everybody that we work with especially in the office that our core competency. is to. Help people disseminate information. That's what we do.

"Say Yes to life seven keys living full out from within so the first key is saying yes to your expansiveness. What does that mean? Part of that is what I was sort of saying about what I did. in terms of taking ownership it means. What happens is of course when we're talking and complaining and we're. We're going into shame, and all of those things they contract us. So, the expansiveness is really just the opposite of the contraction. Letting go the blame letting go of anything that isn't ownership. I really did begin with the way it works for me and taking ownership of are alive and I think that's something where a lot of people don't necessarily do that. Because if you saying come from a place of expansiveness or in other words, it's removing the mindset of the contracts of I. Don't have this so therefore now I'm locked in a box or this person is better than me. I can't do this or I'm less than and so when we continually look at what we don't have or how the world is treated us that. That makes us smaller and smaller and smaller, so the opposite of that of course is going to expand, and so you can look at possibilities I, but I am this I can do this, and so when we look at what you can do, instead of what you cannot do, it comes from a place of power, and said we'll place of victimhood or powerlessness that's right, and also I'm very much. passionate about spiritual globe, and I really do think that spiritual growth can provide a key to cultivating intimacy with your heart as opposed to. When when you, when you give your heart more oxygen through spiritual growth, that gets you more free from the cell talk. You are cultivating really good garden of life that nurturing inner harmony. Spiritual growth what that does is, it ends out having happiness is the byproduct out of the inner harmony plan, and it also makes it less. You'll be less burdened by the Monkey Mind, and by all that negative self-talk as you cultivate soil. And how would you say that to use that metaphor of a garden of life?
