“Beeban Kidron – The Shared Wonder of Film” is a short video of Beeban Kidron’s TED Talk in 2012. Kidron is known for her work as a director and co-founder of FILMCLUB.
“[Young people] are negotiating a world with infinite choice, but little culture of how to find meaningful experience.”
“We are increasingly offered a diet [by Hollywood] in which sensation, not story, is king.”
The TED Talk description: “Movies have the power to create a shared narrative experience and to shape memories and worldviews. British film director Beeban Kidron invokes iconic film scenes — from Miracle in Milan to Boyz n the Hood — as she shows how her group FILMCLUB shares great films with kids.” Beeban Kidron directed Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. She also cofounded FILMCLUB, a charity for students devoted to the art of storytelling through film. More from Kidron’s bio:
“The Wolf of Wall Street” is a dark comedy based on the biographical story of the wolf of wall street Jordan Belfort. The film follows the greedy rise and corrupted fall of the wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his involvement in crime and the federal government. This video walks through some of the challenging shots Brainstorm Digital created for Martin Scorsese’s film The Wolf of Wall Street.

“Duet” is an experiment in smartphone-ready animation from Disney legend Glen Keane. Working with Google’s Advanced Technology And Projects group (a.k.a. ATAP), this cutting-edge media experiment is one of the most relevant in the Motorola “Spotlight Stories” initiative. The initiative seeks to make mini-movies that utilize the capabilities of smartphones (as opposed to just shrinking regular movies down to the size of a phone-screen). The latest contribution to the series was introduced at the Google I/O conference: “Duet,” a cel-animated short by former Disney animator Glen Keane.
The short was hand-drawn using nearly three times the number of pictures required for a traditional 24-frames-a-second motion picture to take advantage of the 60-frames-per-second smartphone standard. The YouTube version of “Duet” does not fully convey how good the final “Duet” will look, but it’s still beautiful, with Keane’s familiar, Disney-trained character designs.
