This is interesting because of the soooo many scams that promise you that you can earn money sitting at home. In parenthesis (hidden) it is implied that you dont have to work hard to do it.

 

This is one that is not a scam but it also highlights that it was all hard work.

 

It is a millennial project that earns money because millennials+ are watching.

Josh Rottenberg & Amy Kaufman:  "Since the advent of social networking services such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — few of which existed when today's young movie audience was born — the duality of social media has bedeviled academics, artists and everyday people alike, as long-held social norms established in an analog world have rapidly given way to a new age of selfies, likes and status updates."

Zachary Wigon:  "While it's not a work of transmedia itself - it's a straight-up feature film - Nacho Vigalondo's new movie Open Windows [...] offers so many lessons about how to make storytelling via contemporary technologies work that it begs to be viewed by those filmmakers who are interested in telling transmedia stories."

David Collet's curator insight, October 27, 10:42 PM

Great reading for the low end of Youth - those still considering a place to study. This is a success story with lots of advice that appears sound to me.

 

It also speaks to an emerging career choice - one that is actually a modification of an earlier career choice. This modification will, I think, pull in  more candidates because it is both much broader in scope and pulls at the strings of many young minds - opportunity for self expression in a job that both pays well if you are talented and has a future.

 

It also references something but doesn't include any link to the reference. A talented youth will find it but sometimes it takes a kick in the l*9% to get some moving. It is practical advice from another success on being prepared for the market and it can be found at http://idealog.co.nz/design/2014/07/classroom-client. The title is From Classroom to Client. It is also worth a read.

Julian Scaff:  "Taking a user-centric approach and drawing upon the disciplines of visual design, psychology, and human-computer interaction (HCI) research, UX aims to design not just the visuals and interface, but the entire user experience."

siobhan-o-flynn's curator insight, October 18, 11:21 AM

"UX is short for User Experience. Broadly speaking UX design is a process for designing positive interactions between people (users) and products (often software or websites) and/or other people. Taking a user-centric approach and drawing upon the disciplines of visual design, psychology, and human-computer interaction (HCI) research, UX aims to design not just the visuals and interface, but the entire user experience. While UX is most often applied to software and website design, UX designers are also designing physical experiences like in-store shopping experiences, airport lounges, classrooms for schools, museum and art exhibitions, etc."
