I read this on the BBC

The EU launches a formal investigation into Google after other search engines complained that the company had abused its dominant position

and I thought “like the EU then”.

There was a great piece in Wired magazine a month or two back about the crowd who do this animated news. Neve thought reading I that they’d turn thei gaze to Ireland.

It’s a style of animation called machinima. You use programmes like iClone or Moviestorm with pre-rendered/customisable animations, and/or set up scenes using videogames and capture them. Don’t know what system they’re using, but it’s pretty good. It’s very useful for pre-visualisation work on films, or just for shooting films machinima-style that you could never finance in live action. I’ve dabbled in it, my magnum opus on the Anglo-Zanzibar war featured at a few festivals. Sadly, the field has become less collaborative and more commercialised in the past couple of years.

It’s an excellent and frank analysis of the economic situation, too. Surprising level of insight into our local conditions.

It is isn’t it? Thats really interesting about the style f animation. According to the Wired piece the Taiwanese studio can do shorts like the above in half an hour or so to feed the nightly news. Hugely labour intensive.

More insight to be gained here than several days of RTE programming.

Sad but true Pope Epopt.
