John Michel's curator insight, November 25, 2013 11:08 PM

So many people talk about themselves on social media. You’ll stand out if you get off the soapbox and instead offer helpful, valuable information, giving props to whoever created it.

David Hain's curator insight, November 26, 2013 12:12 AM

As someone who attempts to do just this - connecting people and ideas - I was delighted to know I may still be in demand, even if I don't want another job!

Giphoscope combines technology from the 19th and 21st centuries | GizMag.com | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

What happens when old meets slightly less old? You end up with a product that brings animated GIFs out of the computer monitor and into the 3D world. We actually just covered Gifpop, a product that uses lenticular printing to bring GIFs out, and now the Giphoscope does something similar, but with a hand crank instead.

 

The idea behind the Giphoscope is for GIF artists to have a way of showcasing their craft in the same way painters and photographers can. This ultimately creates a new type of exhibit for art galleries and museums, or just a cool piece for an art collector to display in his or her home.

 

The design is inspired by the Mutoscope, a motion picture device dating back to 1894. The original design featured about 850 black-and-white cards that when flipped in quick succession, displayed about a minute of movement. Of course, the technology has evolved, and the Giphoscope features color in its images. It also features 24 cards, which is better suited to the looping nature of animated GIFs.

 

The looping effect is accomplished with panels that rotate 360 degrees around the device, so once it makes its way through all 24 frames, it loops back around to the beginning, just like an animated GIF viewed on the internet.

Van Gogh's Shadow: Amazing animation of Van Gogh’s paintings suddenly filled with life

Van Gogh's Shadow: Amazing animation of Van Gogh’s paintings suddenly filled with life | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Luca Agnani, an Italian designer and animator, has taken the classic works of Vincent Van Gogh, and brought them to life. He's created a short film called Van Gogh's Shadow which shows over a dozen of Van Gogh’s paintings suddenly filled with life and movement, perhaps giving us an insight into how the artist may have seen the world he lived in.

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Street photography | Photographer: Justin Sainsbury | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

I was born in 1971 in Brighton, on the south coast of England. Taking pictures is one thing I have stuck at. It’s the occasional surprise; either in the picture or circumstance I find myself part of, which keeps me wandering.

I try not to have an agenda but seem to be drawn to the psychology of a situation- this often seems to involve a relationship of some sort, either between people or their environment. I do enjoy the fun stuff, but it’s the pictures that raise questions or might have different interpretations that really interest me. To me, it’s the business of discovering latent fictional stories in everyday situations. - Justin Sainsbury

Before Jumping on the Transmedia Bandwagon: The Four Ways to Approach Transmedia Storytelling

Before Jumping on the Transmedia Bandwagon: The Four Ways to Approach Transmedia Storytelling | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
The digital revolution has spurred a revolution in storytelling, and filmmakers have been exploring ways to host, extend, amplify and augment their audio-visual narratives online since the Internet became a popular communication device.
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

It´s good to remember: "Audiences don’t like entertainment that feels like nothing but a grab for their hard-earned cash; they need to feel like there is an equitable transaction in place. It’s the same thing with transmedia. If you want to succeed, you shouldn’t just be bolting on a few components because they’re what the industry thinks is sexy right now. You need to have a creative purpose for each piece, and you have to be acutely aware of how all the pieces fit together to make a whole that is bigger than the sum of its parts."
