Just because someone has a good story doesn't mean they can tell a good story.Karl Gude | The Power of Visual Storytelling @ #SXSW
In my next life I’m going to be a cartoonist. That’s after the life where I’m a singer with a voice like Barbra Streisand. Or maybe I’ll do that later and do the life as a cartoonist first. Hm. Hard choices.
Ivan Brunetti, cartoonist (for The New Yorker among others) just released a new book: Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice – about the importance of combining art and story when drawing cartoons – as well as how easy it is. The video sure makes it looks fantastically easy.
I’ll think I need this book (http://amzn.to/ejHeLF) pronto – better start practicing for that next life in time.
“We can”t have great schools without great teachers”, Davis Guggenheim (Director of Waiting for Superman) says in this little video by TakePart. Not only do I love the theme – the importance of teachers for our kids, and to build successful schools – but I love the visualization, enhancing the message so brilliant.
Another great “infographic movie” about the importance of teachers is the Mudpies and Butterflies’ (a social network for school communities) campaign video, which aim to thank and celebrate teachers. View it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_pGiUeVFEU
And by the way, you got to love creative movie titles such as “Waiting for Superman” and network names such as “Mudpies and Butterflies”, don’t you?
Davis Guggenheim just directed Waiting for Superman – a movie about the American school system.
