Lovely Stop-Motion Video: The Endless Loops Of Kishi Bashi

Lovely Stop-Motion Video: The Endless Loops Of Kishi Bashi | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

If you're not already hip to the name Kishi Bashi, it's only a matter of time before you get there. The solo project from indie violinist and master sonic looper Kaoru Ishibashi (who goes by K) has been sending critics into raptures since even before the release of the debut Kishi Bashi album 151A this April. NPR's Stephen Thompson called the Virginia native's “one-man orchestra” of violin, beatboxing and English and Japanese vocals one of a few standouts from South By Southwest. The Washington Post reported at least one woman openly weeping at a Kishi Bashi concert, and Andrew Bird comparisons are already piling on like so many violin loops.

How 'Frozen' fandom changed Disney's stance on copyright infringement

How 'Frozen' fandom changed Disney's stance on copyright infringement | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'There's a reason Frozen was the highest-grossing animated film ever....


What it comes down to is that people love Frozen. Any online parodies,interpretations, or additional kind of videos the movie has generated only serve to illustrate this. Sure, other people may benefit from these videos’ success a little bit, but it’s Disney who benefits the most in the long run. Essentially, Disney decided to look at these viral videos as free advertising for the movie. And with the titanic amount of money Frozen has brought in (well over a billion worldwide), it’s hard not to suggest that the film’s online presence had at least a small hand in this. Basically, Disney has figured out that online engagement only advances their brand...'

The slippery slope of Copyright in today's market. 

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, Today, 2:23 AM


Chris Osterndorf:  "From films, to toys, to parks, Walt Disney's original vision has come to fruition so completely it’s hard to imagine even he knew what was possible.  And one of the chief ways Disney has kept that original vision intact is by building a reputation for being very, very litigious."

Comic-Con: James Frey to Introduce 'Endgame' Universe With Panel, Puzzle, Interactive Game (Exclusive) | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Endgame is James Frey's upcoming book, but to call it only a book would be vastly oversimplifying things.
While the first novel will hit stores Oct. 7, Frey's project is made up of the books (a planned trilogy), e-books, a puzzle, a game, a treasure hunt and an upcoming movie. The first YA book, set in the near present day, follows 12 teens as catastrophic events lead them on a worldwide search for three ancient keys that will save not only their bloodlines but the world.

"Writing A Visual Novel: Interview With Lucky Dog's Tennenouji Siliconera Full Disclosure: This interview has been conducted by a Siliconera editor that will most likely be involved with the English-language release of the game (Lucky Dog) in question.

"It's always a bit of a surprise when MTV premieres a scripted series. Teen Wolf, Faking It, and Awkward., are all popular, but the network still has about four times as much unscripted content  as scripted series.Finding Carter is an even bigger surprise; not only is it an hour-long drama, but it’s a family drama, and one that’s supposed to pack an emotional punch with every episode. Finding Carter has a great premise, a solid cast, and is overall a refreshing departure for the network. So why doesn’t it work?..."
