Trevor Noah Snaps Back.


Trevor Noah is not only a brilliant individual, but a great comedian, and a damn good television host.  But no one is above scrutiny of their remarks.  Recently Mr. Noah made some remarks regarding the backgrounds of the French football (soccer) team, that he was totally justified in conveying, but not everyone in France was too thrilled about it.  In a behind the scenes look at The Daily Show, Trevor explained his thoughts and feelings about the comments made towards him, and he “clapped back” in spectacular fashion.  I’ll let him explain his plight in the Comedy Central video below.

THE MARTIAN – UI SCREEN GRAPHICS


 
The Martian tells the story of stranded astronaut Mark Watney and NASA’s efforts to bring him home. Based on Andy Weir’s novel, the story is set circa 20 years in the future, during NASA’s third manned mission to Mars. Predicated on real science, Director Ridley Scott and Production Designer Arthur Max drew on the expertise of specialists at NASA and the European Space Agency, and asked Territory to craft the screen graphics and UI that would be needed.

As a story that is mediated by technology, hundreds of screens are employed across eight key sets, forming the lens through which the drama unfolds.

Working closely with NASA, Territory developed a series of deft and elegant concepts that combine factual integrity and filmic narrative, yet are forward looking and pushing NASA’s current UI conventions as much as possible.

Territory’s plot-based graphics includes identities and visual languages for each set, and include images, text, code, engineering schematics, 3D visualisations based on authentic satellite images showing Martian terrain, weather, and mission equipment served across consoles, navigation and communication systems, laptops, mobiles, tablets, and arm screens throughout.

In all Territory delivered around 400 screens for on-set playback, most of them featuring interactive elements. With 85 screens on the NASA Mission Control set alone, a number of which were 6mx18m wall screens, there are many moments in which the graphics become a dynamic bridge between Earth and Mars, narrative and action, audience and characters.

Pharrell Discusses Interviewing Jay-Z.


“If you look at like a Jay-Z for example, the thing that tore most people down is what he put on his back and sort of made it make sense, and set an example for what adversity is meant to do in our lifetime. So, it was cool to interview him because he is a living manifestation of my view, that is essentially everything is mind over matter, and with the right determination and the right skill-set, there’s no reason why you can’t figure it out. Then you find your purpose, and that’s a guy who’s found his purpose.”
