At the turn of the century I was working as sales manager on
B2B filmmaker’s magazine, Creation.  We were rivals to
Broadcast and Televisual.  They were good days and career-wise
I was exactly where I wanted to be.  As well as learning all about
film there was an underground buzz revolving around Computer
Generated Imagery (CGI), and soon I was making a visit to
Oscar-winning fx house The Mill, where a new breed of highly-
skilled artists were layering in the fire-arrows launched into
Germania by Russell Crowe’s Romans - the epic opening
sequence to the then big ‘hush-hush’, Gladiator.  Life was good. 
I partied day and night.

CGI Magazine had been launched by John Tilly, Publisher at
Media Directories International (MDI) - the man and company I
now worked for.  But I had no idea of the impact to follow, how
with the advent of CGI and non-linear editing systems the
entertainment paradigm was about to change forever. 
“Interactive” soon became the buzz-word, and the CGI staff
knew their concepts and all about how the future would meld
together.  For one fleeting moment a thought crossed my mind
that just at the moment I arrived, the world was moving on from
its traditional notions of filmed storytelling.  Nevertheless, we
would not be here today without those earlier pioneers
establishing the framework for all our dreams, and so it was I
who arranged to take the legendary Ray Harryhausen out to
lunch.  He was a joy.  But somehow I don’t recall the editor of
CGI thanking me for inviting him, too.

Meanwhile, at Creation we were losing steam in our battle
against Televisual.  We made great strides, but now James
Bennett, our key rival, had returned, and he didn’t like the mess
his baby was in.  The gloves were off.  We needed something fast
but I didn’t know what, testament to my ever-astonished
naïvety.  John suggested that publishers love lists because
punters love the debate.  Televisual had its “Facilities 100”, so
now we had our “100 Movers and Shakers in Film”, then the
following month “100 Movers and Shakers in Television” - note
the order.  We were winning for a while, but then John left his
own company and put in place the wrong people.  Still, he was
the best boss I ever had.
