          Animation for the Nation! You asked for it, so here it is! The Greek Crisis explained in 3 episodes. We didn’t want to have our hands tied when it came to Greek Financial Crisis. It was a joint decision to set them free, and this is what they came up with; the “Greek Crisis Explained” Trilogy. This project was basically assigned by us to ourselves and our brief was happily clear-cut: “Present our very own version of the Greek Crisis”. And the story goes like this; Greece, a young spoiled girl gets devoured by Dept, a humongous monster. EU cannot help Greece out on its own. And when all hope is lost, IMF is brought into play… facebook.com/​nomint Credits: CONCEPT / DIRECTION / DESIGN / ANIMATION / PRODUCTION: NOMINT http://www.nomint.gr/ Creative direction: Christos Lefakis, Yannis Konstantinidis Direction / Story: Marilena Vatseri, Manos Gerogiannis, Christos Lefakis, Yannis Konstantinidis Animation: Marilena Vatseri, Manos Gerogiannis, Christos Lefakis, Yannis Konstantinidis Lead design: George Xanthos (aka Weirdink) Additional design: Manolis Mavris Sound design: Christos Lefakis Voiceover: Ross Douglas Production Team: Aristotelis Michailidis, Marianna Papachristodoulou SCREENINGS: BACKUP 2012/ 14th Backup Festival, Weimar, May 2012 BREST 2011 / 26th Brest European Short Film Festival, France, Nov 2011 ANIM'EST IAFF 2011 / 6th Int.

            • Imagine a way for people all over the world to tell the story of what was happening to them — or around them — during a disaster or emergency • It would need to be easy to use. Something that almost anybody can do. And it would need to be deployable worldwide. • And thatʼs why weʼve created Ushahidi ("testimony" in Swahili) Platform. • Born form the post-election violence in Kenya in 2008, the platform kept Kenyans current on vital information and provided invaluable assistance to those providing relief. • Since then the Ushahidi Platform has grown into a large open-source project impacting a number of communities around the world. • It was deployed in the DR Congo to monitor unrest. • Al Jazeera used it to track violence in Gaza. • It was used to help monitor the 2009 Indian Elections. • And to help gather reports globally about the recent Swine Flu outbreak. • Anybody can contribute information. Whether itʼs a simple text message from a SMS-capable phone, a photo or video from a smartphone, or a report submitted online, Ushahidi can gather information from any device with a digital data connection. • After a report is submitted itʼs posted in near real-time to an interactive map that can be viewed on a computer or smartphone. • But the most powerful feature the platform offers, is the ability to take the core application and deploy it yourself to suit your communityʼs needs. Since the Ushahidi Platform is open-source, anyone can improve the service in anyway they see fit. • Our growing community of developers are constantly at work improving Ushahidi to bring it to as many people as possible — including working to bring native applications to todayʼs most popular mobile devices. • With the Ushahidi Platform, itʼs easier than ever to get critical and timely information to those that need it most, on a platform that almost everybody can use.

                  At the current rate of Elephants being slaughtered for their tusks to make 'Ivory'- it is forecasted that we could see the end of wild elephants across Africa in less than a decade. WILD is a film about the life of Elephants behind the Ivory Trade and Poaching Crisis in Kenya. What is happening to these keepers of the earth, what happens to the earth when there are no more keepers, and what is being done to protect the lives of these magical sentient beings. We hear from Julius- an elephant keeper at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust orphan's nursery in Nairobi, Nick Trent- DSWT's pilot working together with The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) in Kenya's massive Tsavo National Park and the many elephants that have taken refuge at the DSWT as they physically and emotionally rehabilitate to return to the wild where the land has become a battlefield between man and nature. The time to act is now - and there is so much we can do. Begin by getting involved here: iWorry.org. A campaign of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) iWorry is organizing marches around the world to urge world leaders to stop poaching, stop the trade and stop the demand. It is time for a COMPLETE BAN on the international and domestic trade in ivory. It is time to invest more resources into wildlife protection at a field level, to strengthen penalties for those involved in the ivory trade, to heighten security at ports and borders and to invest in educational efforts to stop the demand for ivory. You can help too by donating online to support the orphans rehabilitation process and the anti-poaching efforts of DSWT. This is the beginning of restoring our connection to our home- the earth- and maintaining a safe wilderness for elephants to survive. WILD Directed by Village Beat Produced by RYOT Music: Cliff Martinez, "I Drive" (from the original motion picture soundtrack of Drive). Darkside, "Heart" (from Psychic, released Oct. 8, 2013).

                    Late capitalist networked culture is obsessed with improving performance. TED speakers are cult idols, sharing their commandments for success and productivity. On social networks our friends become brands, and brands become our friends. Self-help books are interchangeable with business philosophies. In the conference room - and the weekend supplements - we learn how to shape ourselves, how to be consistent, how to operate. Reduce entropy. Maximise consistency. Become an industry of one. You are an engine. One day you'll fly away. Commissioned for Outcasting: Fourth Wall Festival, which runs in Cardiff from 25th September – 1st November 2014. Created by Alan Warburton. Music by Alan Warburton and Tom Hatfield. Thanks to Outcasting, which is funded by the Arts Council of Wales Festival Fund and Cardiff Contemporary.
