McLuhan Mashup Challenge!

The McLuhan Mashup Challenge is on and amazing prizes are up for grabs. From October 31st to November 12th, CBC invites you to remix, rework and recreate Marshall McLuhan’s message by creating your own McLuhan Mashup.

What’s a Mashup?

A mashup is media content containing any or all of text, graphics, audio, video and animation drawn from pre-existing sources, to create a new derivative work. You are also welcome to use content and elements you’ve created yourself; however, your work must be created from two or more separate pieces of digital content.

What do I need to do?

Start with an idea, gather your media, mash it up in any form you like and upload your most creative reinterpretation of McLuhan’s ideas. Video or Audio submissions must be no more than three minutes long.

More details are on CBC’s site!  Good luck to all entrants!

You have to see it: Tentacle 1.0 at the MoMA!

 

You may remember a couple months ago we showed Tentacle 1.0 at Doors Open Toronto, now Tentacle 1.0 is on display again! Tentacle 1.0 is on display at the Museum of Modern Art as part of Talk to Me: Design and the Communication Between People and Objects. The exhibition takes place from July 24 to November 7, 2011.  Not only is Tentacle 1.0 beautiful but it’s extremely engaging and addictive, I encourage you all to see it if you are in the area.


Transmission Global Summit, 2011

Stitch Media and Showcase.ca Seeking Fresh Talent for Web-Series

moderationtown

Calling all aspiring actors: STITCH MEDIA (www.stitchmedia.ca) and SHOWCASE (showcase.ca) are hosting an online, Canada-wide talent search for their new comedy web series, Moderation Town. Quirky, crude, and awkwardly self-aware, Moderation Town satirizes the worst of Internet culture by revealing how online attitudes affect average, normal people in the real world.

We want to hear the most creative, hilarious stories people have experienced online. It could be an awkward Facebook encounter, an odd Chatroulette conversation, or the most atrocious message board flamewar. It doesn’t even have to be true. We just want to see what stories people have and search out new and aspiring actors through this open casting call.

- Mark Mullane
Co-writer & Director of Moderation Town

The Deets!

THE WHAT: Searching for fresh, new talent to star in this upcoming six-part comedy web series. Aspiring actors are encouraged to upload a video submission of a funny or embarrassing 90-second anecdote about an online encounter, real or fictional, on the Moderation Town Talent Search YouTube channel (which can be reached via www.moderationtown.com).

THE WHEN: From July 30th to August 20th, 2010

THE PRIZE:
Prizes will be awarded for the funniest and most popular audition videos on August 20th. The best auditions will be shortlisted for the chance to win an Apple iPad and a second audition that could lead to a part in the show, set to launch on showcase.ca in Fall 2010.

…why do I get the feeling the most embarrassing submission will be about a (first-and-last) Chatroulette experience?
