“Breaking Bad” Wants to Blow Half of Your Face Off

“Breaking Bad” Wants to Blow Half of Your Face Off | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

The rise of reality TV proved that plenty of viewers just want to see themselves onscreen, so to speak....

 

...AMC’s “Go Fring Yourself” app is a new promotion for the forthcoming season premiere of its violent meth-focused hit series, Breaking Bad. The cheekily titled app allows viewers to slip into the half-vaporized skin of series villain Gus Fring, who met a memorably gory end in last season’s finale. Each user simply uploads a picture onto the app, in order to then watch Fring get blown up with their own face now grafted onto his, Cage/Travolta-style. Whatever you do, though, don’t forward the resulting footage on to your mother....

Finding Your People: Why Filmmakers Should be on Tumblr... Now | Future of Film

Finding Your People: Why Filmmakers Should be on Tumblr... Now | Future of Film | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Filmmakers, are you tapping your full potential when it comes to social media marketing? If you aren't on Tumblr, says the Center for Social Media, then the answer is a resounding "No." Their advice: Find, tag, respond, and reblog, all with a personal slant....

 

Consider this…

 

1. People on Tumblr LOVE to discuss movies and filmmakers.
They love to share information about movies and filmmakers. They post trailers and clips and encourage people to see films. They do all this, without prompting or the request of the filmmakers, but out of their genuine enthusiasm for film or topic. Need proof? Search the Tumblr tags for THE BULLY PROJECT, BYRON HURT, GASLAND or HOW TO DIE IN OREGON. As far as I can tell, none of these films/filmmakers have created a Tumblr presence on their own. Tumblr’s documentary enthusiasts, however, have built one for these and many other films/filmmakers. All this is to say—your film is out there, being discussed online, without you having to make a shred of effort—think of how much more discussion would be cultivated, and how much more meaningful that discussion would be, if you were participating in it!...

Crowd Manufacturing: 3D printers are getting cheaper and better....

Crowd Manufacturing: 3D printers are getting cheaper and better.... | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Long after his death Isaac Newton’s unpublished papers finally revealed a hidden obsession with alchemy. Newton was interested in particular with the Philosopher’s Stone, a proto-scientific cum mystical experiment reputed to transmutate one material into another. The Crown feared that the alchemists would devalue the coinage if they did one day manage to make gold coins out of lead. Newton, as Warden and Master of the Royal Mint, kept his alchemist musings to himself. Those who did not risked imprisonment and the hangman’s noose. The Crown knew then what many businesses are about to learn: even gold looses its value if it can be easily reproduced. This is precisely what is about to happen as a result of 3D printing.

 

A “crowd manufacturing cycle” is emerging that will disrupt the conventional chain of design, production, and distribution. 3D printing will do to many categories of products what MP3 did to music – but it will also do to the design and distribution of objects what Web 2.0 did to information. The emerging consumer and on-demand use of 3D printers will dramatically and irrevocably disrupt retail, design and distribution. But – crucially – some types of product will be immune to disruption.

 

First, a recap on what 3D printing is

IDEO Launches A Start-Up Incubator (But Don’t Call It An Incubator)

IDEO Launches A Start-Up Incubator (But Don’t Call It An Incubator) | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Apple. Samsung. Procter & Gamble. OXO. Walgreens. Ford. Toyota. 3M. Design firm IDEO has done work for them all in their 21-year history, a go-to service for the richest companies in the world--and their competitors--who are in constant need of fresh ideas.

 

IDEO has decided to add on something new. Rather than work for just the biggest companies in the world, they’ll be working with some of the smallest. It’s part of their new Start-Up in Residence program, a five-month boot camp for just one lucky start-up team who will work right aside IDEO out of their Chicago office.

 

“We’re not an incubator. But we believe that design built into an organization will help build the types of companies that will help change the world,” IDEO Partner Iain Roberts tells Co.Design. “My experience in this field is, too often people are interested in raising the capital to grow, rather than building a great product that will build a great audience.”...

Randy Finch's Film: Further Evidence That Feature Length Films Are In Decline?

According to data released on July 12th, 2012, subscribers increasingly say they pay for a Netflix subscription to access TV shows - and not for streaming feature length films.

 

The percentage of subscribers who say they use Netflix to stream movies has been dropping - from 53 percent in 2011 to 47 percent in 2012.

 

Instead of feature length movies, Netflix subscribers increasingly say they subscribe to watch - at the time they choose and without commercials - TV shows.

 

This self-reporting by subscribers is borne out by actual viewing numbers: According to Netflix 60% of total Netflix viewing hours are spent on television shows, compared with only 40% for movies....

Wikileaks wins court battle against Visa in Iceland over blocked donations (Wired UK) | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

The Icelandic partner of Visa and MasterCard violated contract laws when it imposed a block against credit card donations to the secret-spilling site WikiLeaks, a district court there has ruled.

 

The Reykjavík District Court ruled that Valitor, which handles Visa and MasterCard payments in Iceland, was in the wrong when it prevented card holders from donating funds to the site. The court ruled that the block should be removed within 14 days or Valitor will be fined the equivalent of about £4,000 a day....
