Traveling in Iceland gave a unique and wonderful experience of isolation, as though exploring on another planet. Léa and I spent two weeks traveling by camper van in the midst of an Icelandic winter. Living out of a van with limited wireless connection welcomed us to go days without human contact. Bitter winds, epic storms and icy roads constantly tested our minds, bodies and spirits. When the clouds parted to reveal the rugged landscapes and dramatic sunsets, we experienced it from a profound and new perspective.

Please enjoy this video of Iceland in full HD and with good speakers! Also, please like/comment/share to support my future travels and more videos like this!! Thanks :)

This video couldn’t have been made without the positive support of Léa Lefeuvre ! She was by my side while flying, keeping my hands warm, holding equipment, making food, and taking tons of photos!

Thank you to GO Campers Iceland for hooking us up with a wonderful camper van.

Saw the Samurai Jack premier movie in theaters. It was so amazing to see it in HD and in loud speakers. However I did notice a lot of animation errors. It didn’t bother me too much since they lasted about a second. This is a t-shirt from Box Lunch I bought a few months ago. This was perfect to wear at the premiere! Totally worth it!👍

LingoDeer? Better than DuoLingo????

What is LingoDeer? 

LingoDeer is a mobile app which provides informative lessons about Korean, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese. The app is available for both Apple and Android. The key features that they list on their website include:

◉ Thorough introductions to the alphabet systems and pronunciations.
◉ Full control over how you learn! Japanese learning is available in Kana, Kanji, and Romaji; Korean learning is available in Hangul and romanized letters; Chinese learning is available in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Pinyin.

◉ Take learning anywhere with offline mode.
◉ Varied and innovative exercise modes that target different skills.
◉ 2,000 most frequently used words covered in 60+ units and 150+ mini-lessons.
◉ Smart adaptive review system that adapts to individual performance and selectively reinforces skill points to strengthen weak areas.
◉ Pleasant and HD recordings from native speakers that are crystal clear and authentic.

I attempted DuoLingo in Korean, but I found that it wasn’t going to teach me Hangul and it wasn’t providing the in-depth grammar notes that I needed to learn efficiently. Thankfully all of the troubles I had with DuoLingo were fixed immediately when I switched over to LingoDeer. 

The app progresses similarly to DuoLingo in the sense that there are small sections which are completed to reach more difficult sections. The first section given is the alphabet section and boy! is this thorough. 

I couldn’t include the entire chart, but every letter is laid out in front of you. In an excel-like chart, you can see so many individual syllables and letter combinations. They are separated into three sections: simple, complex, and final. Also, each of the letter combinations include a native speaker’s recording. This will help you with your pronunciation.

After you learn Hangul, you can move onto the actual sections! The best part of this app are the actual lessons and the in-depth grammar tips and lessons they include. 

These lessons give you points which assist you in reaching your daily goal. This goal can be set depending on your intensity level. I am at 20 points per day which is the highest number, but you can always go to lower levels of points if you’re learning at a slower pace. Each of the lessons also include a dedicated vocabulary section at the bottom. Once you click on it you see this:

The practice feature and the review feature on the centra page allow you to review and test as little or as much as you have learned through this app. 

This app is amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone studying Korean, Japanese, or Chinese. 

The only downside I would have to say is that if you are an advanced Korean learner there is no way to test past lower sections. Meaning you have to start all over from the beginning. 

Overall I give this app 5/5 stars! I hope you enjoy using it and studying overall! 

Much love from, 할머니 루시

As the Demand for Visual Effects Grows, a Shortage of Artists Looms Ahead

“There may not be enough artists to meet the every-increasing demand for visual effects shots, participants warned Thursday at the FMX animation and visual effects conference in Stuttgart, Germany.

‘The Matrix was only 420 VFX shots. These days, it’s 2,000 [shots], certainly on a Marvel film, and they have gone up to releasing one more movie per year,’ said Diana Giorgiutti, executive producer of features at Luma Pictures and a former Marvel producer.

'There needs to be an understanding of how long things take; I try to keep an open dialog [on changes],’ [said Lionsgate’s senior vp of VFX Kathy Chasen-Hay]. 'There is such a huge benefit to the digital age, but also with the digital age, everything is instant. The director can keep changing things up to the DI [digital intermediate color grading stage]. We can even change the DCP [the digital equivalent of a film print], because we want to accommodate the creative. We want to accommodate the director.’

She added that a VFX project might start with a 30 percent profit margin 'but when you’re finished, you’re lucky if it’s 5 percent margin, because you can’t control the creative. At the end of the day you have to make a call whether you are going to make changes [because you have a] relationship or go back and ask for overages. I think it’s really tough for any VFX vendor.’

Also discussed during the session was the move toward 4K 'Ultra HD’ resolution, which amounts to four times more data than regular HD. Speakers argued that there’s no time or budget to go to 4K in VFX. 'It will bring costs higher,’ Giorgiutti warned. 'And cost is just one part; there isn’t time.'”
