Hillman Curtis Interview Cont'dML:As far as motion design is concerned, do you feel that with the inclusion of XML and PHP to Flash that it is making it more difficult to design in this field? Or is it simply helping to weed out those not dedicated enough to learn it?
HC:Well, I guess I'm going to get weeded out...ha ha. Luckily there's talented people out there that can understand and speak XML, actionscript, etc.,, way better than I can who are a pleasure to work with. I'm a concept person...focused on the visual and functional communication and experience, that's what I do best...fortunately I have experience with programming language, in my case Lingo back in the day, so I understand the logic enough to effectively direct.
ML:As a designer, should you attempt to learn everything (ASP, PHP, XML, etc), or do you believe in the "Jack of all trades, master of one" approach?
HC:You have to take a shot at it everything, find out what you are best at...happiest doing, and do it, but it's so valuable to at least take a class in an area or technology that confounds you, or pound your way through it in a project, just so you can start to understand possibilities.
