Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

Gloria Serianae (Loise) ·
I think that animals communicate by using a variety of signs like sounds or movement. such signing are considered complex enough to be called form of language as its different from humans because humans produce entirely new combination of words. its an interesting topic even I didn't knew about that....cant wait to check on your next post...

Re: Trophy Hunting Continuity

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
If you are interested in human relationship power dynamics I recommend you read some of Alfred Adler's work. He was an Austrian medical doctor, psychotherapist, and founder of the school of individual psychology. From Wikipedia: Adler emphasized the importance of equality in preventing various forms of psychopathology, and espoused the development of social interest and democratic family structures for raising children. [14] His most famous concept is the inferiority complex which speaks to...

Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

This is quite an interesting inquiry topic and I really like the direction your project is taking and the research that you are putting up. From all the means of communication that you have worked on since you started this project, which one do you think is the most superior? which one is the most common? Is there a relationship in the mechanisms of communication within animals of close taxonomic relationship? It would be really interesting if you tried and looked into some of those...

Good job in doing this research,you have so put across and well displayed your research.Is there a chance genetics can be connected with the ways animals communicate?Thanks for inquiring on this I have learnt a lot

Re: Trophy Hunting Continuity

Hey cool research, good job. While reading this I had just the idea, if computer games about trophy hunting or connected to trophy hunting would reduce the actual desire of some humans to go and actually shoot often endangered animals? I found an interesting article about the hunter Walter Palmer, who killed the famous lion Cecil in Zimbabwe and why hunters like him still have this barbarous instinct or motivation to hunt trophies. http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2...e-walter-palmer.html

This is really interesting because their are so many different animals that you can look into. You could also look into the opposite, why animals that have a mouth don't use it? In animals it isn't really the mouth that makes the sound, but the vocal cords. Do different animals vocal cords work differently. Can't wait to see what else you find. Good Luck!

Re: BRAIN

Interesting topic. Keep going! I'm excited to see your research, because I've never thought about the brain development of smart animals. We always studied the complex human brain in school, but never compared to the one of an elephant for example.

Wow! This is really sweet and and intresting, according to my perspective I find human beings to be thinking differently from other animals, for instance no animal has the ability to critically think and make wise decision like as opposed to human being. But I still agree that other animal tend to be smart than others, but think differently.

I might be misunderstanding your question but metal is just a material like any other that can be used in art. It's like asking how important a tuba is to music, well it's pretty important depending on what kind of music you want to play

Your updates always keep me interested! What you are doing here is so cool and I really like how you make everything look realistic. I like to draw and occasionally paint so I'm not very experienced with this kind of art and that's why I think it's so interesting. Good luck!

Re: Music and Stories - The Firebird

Great analysis of Firebird! It's a personal favourite of mine as well, and it was interesting to read about the folktale, which I didn't know about. Something I've noticed about many of your posts is that I'm not really able to tell how they connect to your question. Maybe that's just me being stupid, but I'm also speaking for the masses here. It might be worth spelling out your purpose at the beginning or end of posts, for people like me

Re: Music and Stories - The Firebird

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Thanks for your question, Jess! I'm looking at how music can convey attitudes of non-verbal characters, as well as tell stories, and Disney's Fantasia 2000 and 'The Firebird' have clear examples of both. I chose 'The Firebird' because I loved the song, and I found that the basis of the piece had a clear plotline that was reflected in the music. I actually can now identify what's going on in the story if I hear a part of the piece! I find it more interesting and relatable now that I know the...

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
I think any PSA film, regardless of its medium has the possibility to draw attention. It would be more about finding a way for the audience to connect/care about environmental issues. You might want to look into advertising psychology if you want to learn more about it.
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
I think this is a really cool idea. Putting ideas into the form of entertainment, which is sad to say but it will make people more interested. People would be aware of what's going on and it can educate kids who don't think about these things. As long as the info isn't put into text to discretely, otherwise they might not even realize the big idea. Where as if you add it in to harshly they might see it as purely educational and won't want to watch it.

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

Anika Zak (Alumni) ·
I think animation is an especial form of PSA as it effectively conveys a message in an amusing manner. Awareness is made all the more impacting when it is intertwined with a beauteous score, colorful imagery, and intriguing setting. We've all, hopefully, had the experience of witnessing a moving piece of film/animation/documentary that forever imbues our minds with certain facts.
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

I think this is a super cool idea, and I really like how it ties the two projects together. I think that even if people do see it as entertainment, it will still be having awareness raised about it. There are many different ways to do this, and I think that it could work if it's done in the right way.

I really like how this project is shaping up! I think the art style you're thinking of is a great choice. Also, I'm really impressed by the program research you've been doing. I know how overwhelming it can be to find appropriate programs. Question for you - you mentioned you found a tutorial for MandleBulb, but do you have a way of learning DragonFrame easily? I know from experience that it's very very hard to learn programs by just sort of jumping in, especially something this...

Re: Anger in Hominidae

Great research! When you say anger can be caused by being drunk what do you mean? It is well know that a drunk person has a better chance of losing control of their emotions than a sober one, but do you think being intoxicated alone can make someone angry?
Comment

Re: Anger in Hominidae

Taylor Testini (Alumni) ·
This is so interesting. I love how you're looking at evolution to figure out the causes for anger. It would be cool if you could observe some of these hominidae up close. As much as I dislike the zoo, that would be a good place to start to observe their actions towards being confined in a cage and observed. Are they angry? Are they sad? The chimps I saw at the Chimp Sanctuary in Kenya were quite an angry bunch. I believe this was mainly due to their situations before they had been admitted...
Comment

Re: Anger in Hominidae

Taylor -thanks for the great ideas and the resources!!! Do you mind if I quote what you said about the primates you observed in Kenya? Also, do you know any nearby zoos that have chimps or gorillas? The nearest one I can find is Seattle... Thanks for the great support!! Delaney - I don't think intoxication alone can cause anger, but then again any of the reasons I have given have to be supported by something else as well. With alcohol, a person often has to have an underlying anger that...
Comment

Re: Anger in Hominidae

Taylor Testini (Alumni) ·
Sure, I don't mind. As both chimps and gorillas are endangered species, it is more rare to find them in zoos, as they are being put into sanctuaries. Seattle is the closest that I know of.
