1. The Power of Empathy


    from Gobblynne Added 170K 2,947 58

    The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts (the RSA) is an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges. Through its ideas, research and 27,000-strong Fellowship it seeks to understand and enhance human capability so we can close the gap between today’s reality and people’s hopes for a better world.    As part of that mission, the RSA public events programme has launched RSA Shorts (http://www.thersa.org/events/rsashorts).  This new series provides a snapshot of a big idea, blending voices from the RSA public events programme and the creative talents of illustrators and animators from around the world. It responds to the ever-increasing need for new ideas and inspiration in our busy lives and acts as a shot of 'mental espresso' to awaken the curiosity in all of us.   The audio of this RSA short is of Dr Brené Brown who spoke at the RSA on The Power of Vulnerability (http://www.thersa.org/events/audio-and-past-events/2013/the-power-of-vulnerability). She talks about the difference between sympathy and empathy and argues that to be truly empathetic you have to be vulnerable by connecting with someone’s pain in yourself.   Animated and directed by Katy Davis (AKA Gobblynne).

                from Thomas Lundy (Lundoxia) Added 366K 415 19

                Nude women talk about woman, body, equality and science. Listen to the podcast interview with me about this film and NUDE NOT on YouTube (starts at 17:28 in this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HilZfeHDRyg) Read the article about this by U.S. author Mark Storey in NUDE & NATURAL quarterly magazine (autumn 2014 issue: http://issuu.com/kinglundox/docs/u.s.__n__quarterly_magazine_tns_aut) This piece is played by far the most in the U.S. with over 100 thousand plays. The next most plays in descending order (Top 10) are about 10K per country: USA, UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, France, India, Turkey, Netherlands and Sweden. I am happy to announce this film has been viewed in Iran, China and most Arab states including Saudi Arabia (22nd position out of 151 country viewing stat listing), Iraq, Yemen and Pakistan (19th position.) Also viewed in Burma (Myanmar), Brunei and Afghanistan. Also India and Turkey have the 7th and 8th most plays respectively in the country stats list. Also played in the remote Alpine Principality of Liechtenstein.

And I still think this could happen. All it takes is one person with the power to press the magic button and I'm easy to find. With a proper budget and state-of-the-art equipment, this film could be magnificently magnified to epic proportions. Nude women on each continent. It ain't never been done before! Directed, written and produced by Thomas Lundy of Lundoxia Pictures, featuring Strasbourg artist Emilie Marçot (http://emliemarcot.e-monsite.com/) This short film was featured at Docs for Sale 2012 (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam/IDFA, http://www.idfa.nl/industry/tags/project.aspx?id=F1069DAC-FEA5-4F54-B18C-84D011C61E95&tab=dfs&tab=dfs), Estonia's Pärnu International Film Festival 2012 and Germany's ISFF Detmold 2013.
