Running a small business can be a challenging task, especially in today's economic environment. What are some ways you have grown or improved your business?
I am looking at a position in an internet marketing company. What does this job really do? Obviously I can look at what a Media Buyer is....but how does this fit into Internet marketing? (P.s. I know PPC and SEO). Thanks
What do each of these majors involve? Can you define them please? What kinds of jobs look for people who major in these fields? What type of courses do u need to take in both high school and college for these majors?
I'm in my first year in high school and I'm thinking about college. I know what major I want to get into and that's Film/Animation/Video (Digital Arts/Media), I'm confident in the Rhode Island School of Design or School of Art institute Chicago. What doesn't make sense to me is that I'm going to college to LEARN animation, yet I need to make a portfolio consisting of my animations and digital art work prior to college. I've been watching tons of tutorials and googling information, but I don't know what programs I should use to animate, if I need tablets for drawing, or key things in my portfolio. I've tried contacting people "big" in the industry, but I get no replies. Please help
A lot of sites I came across recommend tablets and softwares, if anyone can help me with those, too
I'm a first-time freelance writer working on a textbook for a large, well-known scholastic publisher. I've had to purchase some books for my work, and I'm wondering if it would be reasonable for me to bill my employer for these.
Are expenses like these implicitly included in my hourly fee (which I could understand) or might I ask for separate compensation? Thanks so much for advising me.
My daughter wants to get her degree somewhere in media communications...film production, digital media, etc. We live in Maryland and she wants to attend a "small-ish" college that isn't going to be too expensive but still have a solid reputation once she hits the job market. So far, we have a tentative list of schools...1) Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, 2) The Art Institute of Philadelphia, 3) and American University in D.C.
Can anyone offer opinions on these schools and/or suggest any others in this area or maybe down through VA to NC that fit this bill? Thanks.
I'm planning to go to an art college after my graduation in 2014 and what I want to major in is Design (either motion, animation, graphics, digital, stuff like that xD).
However I don't really know what is the best college for me, I'm stuck between Cornish and Art Institute of Seattle since I'm in Washington.
The Art Institute has so many options for design AND media, but Cornish has a good package major for Design (ie. Motion Design). Tuition is wayyyy more expensive at Art Institute though :'C
My question is, which art college is better for it's cost and courses?
Any Alumni from either of these places snagged a job right after graduation from these places?
Someone told me that and not that i believe them, but i cant figure out what i could do in that area. I am thinking of majoring in business and minoring in photo. All i know is i wouldnt want to work in a studio (like family, senior pictures) or a news photographer. Anything else i think might be okay. So is it a hard field to work in and what are the interesting areas to go in?
Comment for the truth. In the old days, they used to be able to place (sell) them for real money to the householders. Nowadays, they puchase them themselves and give them away. The concept of the watchtower subscription has disappeared, has it not? When they can no longer give them away, the publishers (members, odd terminology for members of a church, isnt it?) you can expect to see a collection plate doing the rounds.

Hi, everyone; I´m 17 years old, have a High School diploma (Not from USA), I am resident in Queens, New York and I want to attend to a Digital arts and 3D animation college or institute.
I have done a deep research I think these are the best two possibilities:
The Art Institutes of Philadelphia - Online - Media arts & animation - Bachelor
City University of New York (Queens college) - Campus - Digital media program - Bachelor
I`m interested especificly in taking these classes:
General digital art
Drawing for 3D animation and storyboard
3D modeling, texturing, compositing, animating and rendering
Sound FX designer and music composer
Film editing, composing and mastering
I am good at:
Creativity (Freaky MacGyver-like ideas)
Drawing (Finishing, shadows, shades, etc)
Music (Recording, Editing, Mixing, Composing)
Video and Image (Editing, Composing, Rendering)
3D (Modeling, texturing, Rendering, Stereographic)
PC (almost any task)
I know what you may think. . But I can manage to handle any software with a little practice and some Internet research and tutorials, but, for now, I`ve only experience with these mayor software:
Adobe After Effects
Magix Video Pro
Corel Video Studio
Natural motion Endorphin
And so, and so...
As you can see, I haven`t almost any experience with Autodesk 3D Studio or Maya or ZBrush, because I know that they are extense classes that I may learn in college.
Now, what I`m asking for is:
Advises about any college requirement or career tips.
Advises according to my interests, knowledge and your experience.
Opinions about what topics should I be studying or software that should I be practicing.
Statistics about jobs hirings on each branch of my career so that I can focus my effort on that one.
Computer hardware or software requirements.
Tips about learning or software techniques.
Any other useful opinion, advise, idea, tool, webpage or possibility.
I really have a passion for this carreer and I really hope that you could help me.

I'm just thinking about what I could do in a few years time, like I know i'm only fourteen but it doesn't hurt to look at some options. I'm a really arty person, I love drawing with both traditional media and digital. My style of drawing is mainly japanese manga but I can do realistic just as well as manga. I do a lot of design work, i design things like dresses, funky looking shorts and t-shirt designs. I also really enjoy pop art, it's definitely one of my favourites. I like to try new things though, lately I have been using recycled materials to make a sculpture. I'm also a pretty good writer, my strengths are creative writing and poetry.
Any ideas on what would be good for me? I'd love to hear some :)
I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
In star trek the economy is based on utilitarian participation in some kind of common place work force, where we all 'work together for the betterment of humanity'.
I have spoken with people who say this will never happen because of the 'inherent greed of the human race'.
I don't think we are all inherently greedy. I think the level of greed we see today is a learned trait, based on my psychological education. But that is another conversation entirely.
The way I see it, we are incrementally evolving toward an economy where more and more things will become 'free'. Already look at how much cost has gone down for basic mediums of entertainment.
Once upon a time you had no choice but to pay 70$ a month for overpriced, limited cable broadcasting. Now you pay 10$ a month and can watch almost anything you want, whenever you want, as many times as you want, on netflix.
You use to have to pay 50$ a month for local phone service. Now you can pay 20$ a year for digital phone service (magic jack) and there are also free alternatives. Plus cell phone service plans are going down (see virgin mobile).
Music is another thing that is easily acquired for next to nothing, and you can get it at your own pace, song by song. Consuming it as you see fit, rather than what some corporate sponsored radiostation sees fit.
You once had to spend hundreds of dollars for a decent vitamin/supplement regimen. Now you can log into swanson or vitacost and get months worth of the same supplments for way less than a hundred dollars.
The reason I am mentioning all this is because the reason price is going down is that demand is either dropping because of widespread availability of many of these commodities or luxuries or a lot of these companies cannot compete with free sources, so they try their best to present them in such a way that it appeals to a prospective buyer.
What is this all leading to? An economy where everything is free, as long as you participate in the economy?
Well, one might exclaim. 'that would never work because given the option people would rather lay around and have everything handed to them'.
^^^ So by the above logic, money is the only worthy incentive?
I have to heartily disagree with this sentiment.
Basically it is illogical. It presupposes that 1-People would have nothing to 'work for' if currency were removed from the equation and 2-That there are no other viable incentives.
I disagree 1000?ith people who think this way.
If people slave 40, 50, 60 hours a week just for basic necessities, food, shelter, living costs etc, to barely be able to make ends meet, what do you think they would do if the incentive was the betterment not only of humankind, but, consequently, their own lives?
I think at first people would see the selfish aspect of this approach, but soon, in a matter of two or three generations, they would realize the big picture, as it were.
That is, that the betterment of the human race is the primary goal, because no one lives in a vacuum and therefor, we cannot better ourselves fully without bettering our species and vice versa! A feedback loop of mutual necessity!
After all, is that not what the current economy is based on, albeit in a very lop sided fashion that favors consumerism and impersonal deterministic forces (being controlled by what other's want, instead of what thy self wants)?
Also, I do not buy the notion that 'competition' is solely responsible for innovation, especially where advances in physics or biology are concerned. On the contrary a concerted effort is what usually gets the job done (think the human genome project, for example)!
And after all, if humans can invent so much fighting against one another, imagine how much they can invent working with one another!
So, what does everyone else think? I am pretty convinced that notions of eternal greed are just way out of proportion and generally the domain of cynics who, because they are so ingrained in todays economics, they cannot see past their own noses on this matter!
