Satoshi Kon - Editing Space & Time from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.
Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.

What If Bacteria Designed Computers? from Jared Boone on Vimeo.
Ward Cunningham - What If Bacteria Designed Computers?
This talk explores Bynase, the biologically inspired protocol that Cybord computers use to signal values amongst themselves. The primary value of Bynase is that it drives system designers into novel tradeoffs with analogies in biological systems. A second value of Bynase is that it encourages casual small-scale hardware/software projects suitable for one-off art or educational projects.
Ward Cunningham, best known as the inventor of the Wiki, is a computer programmer who takes inspiration from life’s processes ranging from cell signaling to cultural evolution. His day jobs include serving as Chief Technology Officer of AboutUs.org, a growth company hosting the communities formed by organizations and their constituents. Ward also co-founded the consultancy, Cunningham & Cunningham, Inc., has served as a Director of the Eclipse Foundation, an Architect in Microsoft’s Patterns & Practices Group, the Director of R&D at Wyatt Software and as Principle Engineer in the Tektronix Computer Research Laboratory.
This talk took place at DorkbotPDX 0x01, March 30, 2008. Visit dorkbotpdx.org for more information.
OLD TOWN from thismustbetheplace on Vimeo.
Produced and directed by Ben Wu and David Usui, of Lost & Found Films (lostfoundfilms.com).
Old Town Music Hall has been screening both vintage silent and sound films since 1967. Bill Field, the theaters owner, accompanies the silent films with perhaps the most amazing Wurlitzer pipe organ you’ve ever seen.
THIS MUST BE THE PLACE
There’s no place like home. It’s where we live, work and dream. It’s our sanctuary and our refuge. We can love them or hate them. It can be just for the night or for the rest of our lives. But whoever we may be, we all have a place we call home.
THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films that explore the idea of home, or places that function as home - workplaces, hang out spots, etc. We want to figure out what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.
We’re always on the lookout for dwellings of all sorts. If you’ve come across any curious or eccentric homes or other curious places, feel free to send them along.

Dog and Butterfly from Wayne Unten on Vimeo.
Inspired by a visit to the Tyrus Wong exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum in August 2013, this is an animation experiment using digital brushes to achieve a watercolor look.
All artwork was created using TV Paint 10.5 Pro on my Microsoft Surface Pro 2 over several months in my spare time. Behind the scenes of how this was produced can be found on my blog… animatingforfun.com
