  2. Step right up, ladies and gents! Step up to see Raf Anzovin and his ephemeral rig, daring to animate a cat waving as the world watches! No graph editor! No channel box! I won't lie, folks, we don't know if he'll make it out of this one alive! Children and people with weak constitutions may want to avert their eyes.

  3. The work of creative practitioners the world over is becoming increasingly commoditised, and as a consequence valued less and less by clients. So argued Canadian business development consultant and author Blair Enns. He said that we can stop the rot if we have the confidence to take control of our creative businesses, reclaim the high ground in client relationships and abandon free pitching.

  4. I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass' voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one's taste and one's skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira's interview - using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.

    I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt about his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass' message isn't only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.

    Ira Glass, whom I've never met in real life, but who had such a big influence on my development. Thank you for telling beginners what nobody else does.

    David Shiyang Liu for the video that inspired me to start the project. You all should watch his awesome kineticTypo-version here: vimeo.com/24715531

    Orange Hive Studio for light equipment and location.

    Jutta and Uwe Sax for several pieces of equipment and their support.
