My Feelings Matter

(Lights up on a young man sitting on a stool in front of a video camera.)


Hi, my name is Mason. And this is my story. A story about feelings. Do you pay attention to your feelings? It’s easy when you feel happy. Like when you get a new bike or pair of shoes. Of course, everyone loves those kinds of feelings. But sometimes there are scary feelings. Scary feelings that hurt people. Once I had a scary feeling and someone made me promise not to tell anyone. Keeping it a secret made me feel bad. I didn’t know what to do.

(Lights up on Mason in a baseball uniform practicing with Coach)


It all started when Coach came over to play catch. Coach came over every week to help me get ready for the season, and we had a lot of fun. But one day things were different.…


How Social Media Changes Entertainment

Posted by Dominic Richardson on October 2, 2015 at 9:22am 0 Comments

Social media has changed the way consumers purchase entertainment content and how they express ideas regarding creative works. Prior to MySpace, most internet users viewed media through sites dedicated to specific forms of art. Most had favorite pages for images, music and reviews of television and film. The popularity of Facebook and YouTube made it convenient for users to view articles, videos, and share original content on social media.

A recent study by Penn Schoen Berland reports 88% of survey respondents view social media as a new form of entertainment. The market research firm indicates the average weekly user behavior among millennials:

-       8 hours: Social networking sites

-       8 hours: Music

-       7 hours: Television shows

-       4 hours: Movies

-       4 hours: Video clips

The report found that 79% watch broadcast or cable television and use social media for sharing ideas regarding onscreen productions. An additional 41% use Twitter and Facebook to share thoughts during live broadcast and airings of scheduled shows.  The report indicates the percentage of social media posts by genre:

-       56%: Comedy

-       46% Reality TV

-       38% Sports

-       26% Cable News

The study found that social media plays a significant role in helping viewers connect with articles, previews, behind-the-scenes content, and influence consumer behavior. 20% confirmed ads for entertainment found through social media had influence on purchasing decisions and 9% on comments and reviews. 

Material and Spirit by Dr. Dalia Hakker-Orion - comments regarding Marlen Ferrer

Posted by Marlen Ferrer on September 14, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

The act of creating plastic art is seeded within the ability of a few talented people who transform tangible material into unique artistic creations. The multifaceted artist Marlen Ferrer is part of this exclusive group and her works manifest the magical process of transforming natural materials, colors and tar into compositions containing spiritual entities which convey feelings and emotions and are interpreted by the viewers according to their personalities. Her attraction to the beauty and perfection of nature, the ultimate artist, inspires her to combine natural vegetative elements in her sculptural works, creating female figures [2 m height] from palm fronds.  The removal of the barriers between her personal life, feelings and emotions are reflected in the works represented in this catalogue which manifest the versatility of her expressive-intuitive amplitude. Statements about femininity, couples, struggles and ambitions are displayed in vigorous hand strokes with brushes and scalpels in various techniques on recycled paper or canvas. With force and assurance she paints, drips, floats and leaves her unique textural and chromatic stamp.

Her dynamic compositions are vigorous, sensuous and create a dialogue with the surrounding space.  The white industrial oil paint and tar are applied expressively "alla prima" revealing the different hues of the tar, without inhibitions or boundaries, and become clear images when perceived by the viewer. The technique and quality of the works derives from her long experience as a teacher and therapist, observational abilities and the inspiration of the biggest teacher- ÔMother NatureÕ. Her sensitivity and empathy to the human condition [pschycologically] combine with her rich experience and her experimentalism to create a versatile topography. The importance of the textural…

“Perfect for events like movie premieres and new product launches,” the company said on its corporate blog.

“People come to Instagram for visual inspiration, and advertising has the power to touch, inspire and move people,” explained James Quarles, global head of business and brand development.

Instagram launched its service in 2013 for a select number of advertisers in the US and UK; eMarketer projects the company to reach higher mobile display ad revenues than competitors in social media by 2017.

While The Walk hasn't made quite the box-office splash that was intended, having failed to match the efforts of The Martian, there's still no denying just how impressive Robert Zemeckis' return to the big-screen is. It really is how an IMAX and 3D film should be made, and is further proof of Robert Zemeckis' prowess as a filmmaker, something that he's been showcasing for close to 40 years now.  But where does Joseph Gordon-Levitt tight roping between The Twin Towers while deploying a French accent sit alongside the legendary filmmaker's other efforts?

Danny Boyle For 28 Months Later? Here's What He Said

While talking to The Playlist, the Academy Award winning director gave some updates on historical films that he's working on, as well as the following quote of hope involving the unofficially titled sequel to 2007's 28 Weeks ...
