Animation Mentor - Online School

This is a very cool animation school, and the entire programme is run solely online.
I want to come back and take a more detailed look at this one, as I heard an interesting podcast article about how the students learning experience varies greatly from a traditional school, being far more collaborative. The mentors that give classes and field questions and answers sessions are some of the best animators in the industry, and to provide access to them to such a potentially wide and diverse population of student animators is amazing.

Hot Air Plastic Balloon

With the objective of raising awareness about Global Warming and the hazards of the use of plastics, Tomas Saraceno has conceived and instigated a very interesting project called Museo Aero Solar. Building a hot air balloon from plastic bags, the balloon flies from town to town, city to city, and grows larger as more bags are added in each location it lands. More images can be found on the projects blog.

Improv Everywhere - Freezes New York

This has to be my favorite Improve Everywhere stunt. Getting over 200 people to stand perfectly still for five minutes in Grand Central Station, NY.
