Manufactured Love - A stop-motion robot love story

Wed, 08/14/2013 - 22:43 -- rprice

Our goal with Manufactured Love is to create a very professional, new style of stop-motion animation that is filled with smooth camera movements and beautiful, dark, charming, lovable robots. Manufactured Love will exhibit new camera movements with intricate rigging systems, creative trucking and GO PRO shots. The process began when I collaborated with a two time regional Emmy award-winning writer Kat Michels. We put our heads together and designed a story that captures the gritty desolation of Robot Land and the drive, love and frustration of the main character Artie.

Thu, 05/30/2013 - 08:10 -- rprice

What’s more, regardless of whether they work in the arts or in other businesses, more then three-quarters of arts graduates say that critical thinking, creativity, and the ability to work with others are skills they both learned in school and use on a regular basis in their current work. Arts graduates are plucky and understand how to use their creative skills in a variety of settings.

Unleashing Engineering Creativity — Eogogics

Mon, 05/13/2013 - 11:59 -- rprice

The good news is that we were all born to be creative. The bad news is that our education system (and in particular, our training to become engineers) drives it out of us. Here’s a startling fact: We lose nearly all of our creativity between the time we are about 5 years old and the time we graduate from high school.

Design News - Guest Blogs - Engineering Creativity Peaks in Kindergarten

Mon, 05/13/2013 - 11:59 -- rprice

From one perspective, creativity is the ability or act of making something new. It's the quality that lets us go beyond our current designs, concepts, and perceptions and emerge with something completely new. It's the quality that lets artists start with a blank canvas and create masterful images. It lets writers start with a blank page or computer screen and create new stories. It lets sculptors start with a block of stone and create meaningful shapes. And it lets engineers start with a need and define products or processes that meet that need.

Art Isn't Hard: An Interview With Brendan O'Connor | Ohlando

Fri, 05/10/2013 - 18:19 -- rprice

“Orlando is my context,” he says. “But it’s all subconscious. With the cardboard art festival, for instance. Just seeing what we did this year compared to the direction it’s taking as we plan for next year is very cool. And that progress happens just from opening it up to more and more people and their submissions. I didn’t seek to make those changes, they happened naturally. Same thing with the SIT project. Someone just donated a bunch of beach chairs, how Florida is that?” He is referring to his best known and longest running endeavor, the SIT project.
