I know I've got California on the line when Orphanage cofounder Scott Stewart and founding member Dav Rauch volunteer their astrological signs (Cancer and Taurus, respectively) within minutes into the conversation. At the crossroads of design and technology, San Francisco was a natural birthplace for the Emmy-nominated effects company where Rauch (pictured, right) continues to design and direct in their Presidio Park offices (soon to be the home of George Lucas' headquarters as well). Stewart (pictured, left), a producer, writer, and director, focuses more on live action production at their sister outpost in Hollywood. Also known for their Magic Bullet software that lends a film look to video, keep an eye out for more visual stunners in the team's upcoming Dr. Pepper and X-box commercials. Here Rauch and Stewart fill us in on the virtues of working with talented people, the DV revolution, and learning to surf. Welcome to part VI of our lead-up to the Semi-Permanent design conference.
