      For the opening ceremony of !f Istanbul International Independent Movie Festival, as a suprise event, The Crane is made by a huge trans-discipliner team including coders, illustrators, animators and musicians. Using iMAX systems and its glasses, the movie has chance to turn into an interactive 3D movie. Its reaction is linked to the sound of a live orchestra which is a temporary gathering of unusual musicians. This interaction has directional influences on some 3D computer generated parts of the movie in a way of many different ratios. Main story belongs to a girl with dreams, support and motivation come from !f Istanbul, producing by nerdworking, performed by the orchestra with 300 audience mass interaction. Theme of this year is ''People Power'', so you will see it at the end of the performance. Please read carefully and start to spin in the universe. Caught the hand of The Human, With one wing, The Crane, Drawing out the other to The Universe. The Universe pulled and ascended, The Human and The Crane, Up to the sky, the seventh.

      • EDSA 25th Anniversary Docu - OBB


        from The Acid House / Added

        Show opener for a documentary on the 25th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution. Main objective of the documentary is to relay the ideals of the original revolution to the younger generation, whom most likely weren't even born at the time of the event. Instead of doing our usual style for a show open, the studio brainstormed and Pauline had this wonderful idea to execute it as part OBB, part advocacy, wherein we shot ourselves handing out EDSA 25 flyers to kids and students. The scene with the moving frames was also shot at the EDSA Shrine. Client: ABS-CBN News & Current Affairs Producer: Lester Chavez Concept | Production Design | Art Direction: Pauline Vicencio Direction | DOP | Editing: Ivan Despi Post: The Acid House Mograph: Ikil Muya, Claire Ganzon & Dale Dellosa Scorer: Dodoy Ongleo February 2011

        • Tim DeChristopher's Imprisonment: Our Call to Action!

          Tim DeChristopher was sentenced to 2 years in prison on July 26, 2011 at the Salt Lake City federal courthouse. He was taken immediately into custody, being denied the typical 3 weeks afforded to put his affairs in order and say goodbye to his friends and family. Read More: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/breaking-tim-dechristopher-sentenced-to-2-years-in-prison-20110726 Federal prosecutors asked for Tim to receive an extra harsh prison sentence in an effort to intimidate the movement that stands with him. They hoped that by condemning him to years behind bars, they would “make an example out of him” and deter all of us from taking meaningful action. Read More: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/why-the-prosecution-wants-a-harsh-sentence-for-tim-to-stop-you-from-taking-action-20110719 In court, Tim said “You can put me in prison, but it will not deter my future of civil disobedience and it won’t deter others who are willing to fight to defend a livable future.” Immediately after the bang of the gavel, Ashely Anderson and Ashley Sanders were hauled out of the courtroom for loudly rallying people inside saying, “this court has proven itself incapable of justice. So the people will take it back – it is now our court!” foreshadowing the civil disobedience to come outside. More: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/26-go-to-jail-for-justice-outside-slc-courthouse-20110726 As Henia Belalia left the Courthouse, she made an official statement declaring: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Consider this your call to action. Consider this the spark that will ignite this movement. Our hearts are broken today, because we see a charismatic, bright, concerned man who cares for the future of the next generation, be incarcerated in federal prison and treated like a criminal. If there was ever a day, if there was ever a moment in history for us to stand for climate justice, this is that moment. And we will no stop, we will not be intimidated, and we will not be deterred in our plight for climate justice. We demand today and tomorrow a healthy and just world for our children and for our children’s children. And we will not stop until the real criminals–the fossil fuel industry that is raping and pillaging our planet–be held accountable. I ask as a personal favor that we do not let this sacrifice, the sacrifice that Tim DeChristopher’s willing to make, the fact that he has never given up on his convictions, and the fact that he has never backed down–that we do not let that sacrifice go unnoticed, that we do not let that sacrifice go without a response. I ask every one of you, what is your commitment? This is your call to action, because this is our future. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Peaceful Uprising activists did a sit-in to blockade the 2 front entrances of the Federal Courthouse, to tell the world “its ours” and emphasize that if Tim was going to jail, they were too, giving meaning to the slogan “we are all Bidder 70.” Taking their lead, members of the community began to join the blockade to show their love and outrage. 26 people were arrested.

                    What if representative democracy really reflected the fullness and greatness of Who We Are? What if LEGISLATORs: • Did not need to spend half their time fundraising for campaigns? • Included the quietly thoughtful as well as the rhetorically dominant? • Included those whose demeanor and physical attributes would not likely win elections? • Were proportionally representative of the citizens they serve?
