Imaginary Friends - Bring Stories to Life for your Kids! by Evan Jones & Stitch Media

We’ve built the technology that will drive Imaginary Friends and tested it with friends and family. We’ll have to test again if we hit thousands of concurrent users, but we’ve already proven that our team can produce games and websites to handle this traffic. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MAKE THIS SAFE FOR MY KIDS? HOW WILL YOU DELIVER BOOKS SO QUICKLY? WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE YOUR STORIES? CAN YOU AFFORD TO SHIP/PRINT THESE REWARDS? WHAT IF YOU GET MORE ORDERS THAN YOUR FUNDING GOAL? Our dream is to make Imaginary Friends long-term with our creative team and that means any additional funds will be spent making additional stories, better activities and more FUN together with you.

The 12 principles of animation. “By their skillful use the animator gives life, meaning, character and spirit to no matter what subject.” – Norman McLaren Established during the 1930s by the 9 main animators working at Disney, the 12 principles of animation are an excellent guide for animation creators looking for a few sure-fire techniques to make their work leap to life.

The 12 principles of animation

Though not essential to the animation process, when followed these principles can help you create images that seem to obey the laws of physics and will appear far more lifelike to the viewer as a result. Some of these principles explore the more conceptual components of animation, such as emotional timing and character appeal. Depending on what you are trying to achieve with your animation, you might use all or none of these, but they are valuable none the less.

The aim of this blog is to break down the components of each principle and explain their importance through examples and visuals. ChineseMedicalLesson. Rgbandu.

Student review: Digital Prohibition: Piracy and Authorship in New Media Art

Her reading is influenced by Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri's conception of "multitude", a group that constantly creates the common, that Guertin identifies in recent movements from Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring. In the same way that internet artists borrow from copyright to produce their work (via collaging, sampling and remixing), Guertin borrows from theorists ranging from Marshall McLuhan to Guy Debord to Bruno Latour.

Media Literacy: A Definition and More. The definition most often cited in the US is a succinct sentence hammered out by participants at the 1992 Aspen Media Literacy Leadership Institute: Media Literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media in a variety of forms.

Media Literacy: A Definition and More

Definitions, however, evolve over time and a more robust definition is now needed to situate media literacy in the context of its importance for the education of students in a 21st century media culture. CML now uses this expanded definition: Media Literacy is a 21st century approach to education. It provides a framework to access, analyze, evaluate, create and participate with messages in a variety of forms — from print to video to the Internet.
