"Сборник графических новелл «ВЫ-ЖИВШИЕ. ГУЛАГ»
Воспоминаниях реальных жертв репрессий, рассказанные визуальным языком графических новелл. Проект Музея истории ГУЛАГа.
Лишь половина молодых россиян слышали о массовых репрессиях, которые происходили в СССР. Каждый четвертый впервые слышит о ГУЛАГе (сеть лагерей, в которых отбывали наказание осужденные не только за бытовые и уголовные преступления, но и по политическим мотивам).
За 27 лет существования ГУЛАГа через лагеря прошли около двадцати миллионов человек, каждый десятый остался в ГУЛАГе навечно.
Жертвы репрессий достойны того, чтобы о них не забывали.
Цель проекта – сформировать знание среди молодежи о трагических событиях в истории нашей страны, происходивших на территории бывшего СССР. Самым простым и доступным способом рассказать о судьбах людей, ставших жертвами репрессий, дать возможность почувствовать всю боль и ужас того несправедливого времени и не допустить, чтобы трагедия повторилась.
Формат графических новелл позволяет доступным языком рассказать о судьбах реальных людей, пострадавших от репрессий..."

https://planeta.ru/campaigns/mezhsezonie "Я, Александр Хант, режиссер фильма «Как Витька Чеснок вез Леху Штыря в дом инвалидов». Я хочу рассказать вам про свой новый замысел, фильм «Межсезонье», который я начну снимать весной следующего года. Это история про двух подростков, мальчика и девочку, которые, в знак протеста против запретов родителей, убегают из дома с оружием и отправляются в рискованное криминальное путешествие. Сценарист фильма «Межсезонье» — Дмитрий Соболев, известный вам по фильму «Остров» Павла Лунгина.
Жанр: приключенческая, подростковая, криминальная драма
Время и место действия: Россия, наши дни
Продолжительность: 1 час 50 минут
Год выпуска: начало 2020
«Межсезонье» — это история про двух подростков, парня и девушку, которые пытаются отстоять не только свою любовь, но и право быть самими собой. Чтобы оставаться вместе, они вынуждены бежать, скрываться, жить двойной жизнью. Пытаясь доказать свое право на свободу и индивидуальность, ребята переходят черту дозволенного, превращаются из Ромео и Джульетты в Бонни и Клайда — в мстителей всему миру, в котором им не нашлось места.
Толчком для сюжета стала реальная трагедия, произошедшая в 2016 году под Псковом — 15-летние Денис и Катя сбежали из дома с найденным в сейфе оружием, забаррикадировались на даче и, когда их попыталась взять штурмом полиция, застрелились.
К сожалению, история псковских школьников не единственная сегодня. Мы часто слышим о подростковой жестокости не только по отношению к сверстникам, но и к самим себе. За 2017 год в России подростками было совершено 42 556 преступлений и 693 самоубийств. Ежегодно каждый 12-ый ребенок пробует совершить суицид.
Наша цель — дать подросткам высказаться и сделать так, чтобы их услышали."
"離騷幻覺 Dragon's Delusion - The Animated Sci-fi Project
The Dragon’s Delusion is a visually unique, highly stylised sci-fi story. This is not just an animation. This is an untold secret of our soul.
The search for eternal life is an incessant obsession of mankind. 2000 years ago, Emperor Qin Shi Huang conquered all six Warring States. After creating the first unified Chinese empire, the Emperor devoted his energy to the search for the elixir of life. He failed ultimately, and finally resorted to building a terracotta army to accompany his burial, so that he can extend his dream of an eternal throne in his afterlife. The Dragon’s Delusion puts forward a hypothesis: if the Emperor did succeed, what would the world be like? In this story, the Emperor implements an eternal life project that seeks to merge man and machine, and successfully accomplishes an unprecedented autocracy. In a world where human beings, robots and cyborgs live alongside one another, a robot nicknamed Mr. D appeared in a port city. As he discovers within himself the soul of a priest from a past life, he starts to pursue the answer to this mystery. In the process he is drawn into the plans of an assassins’ league dedicated to the extermination of the Emperor. Mr. D must solve the mystery of the Emperor’s immortality in order to overcome all the crises and solve all the mysteries."
"From two masters of Italian comics comes a graphic novel for adults, about the true story of Matteo Realdo Colombo, the anatomist who, in the 16th century, was the first to unveil the function of the clitoris and therefore completely revolutionise the perception of the source of female pleasure. For fans of this genre, this extraordinarily erotic drama is a must have!"
"Glow is an ongoing comic series by Ray Chou and Vincenzo Ferriero with art by Anny Maulina and Dia Jia.
Glow takes place in a world where magic catalyzed both industrial revolution and nuclear holocaust. Half a millennia ago, an ancient and powerful empire known as Nymera developed a means to channel and store magical energy into a sticky blue substance known as anima, storing them into massive Towers across the world."

"Developing and upstreaming complete Linux support for the Allwinner VPU, for hardware accelerated video decoding and encoding.
The Allwinner ARM processors are very popular in a large number of hobbyists development boards, and more and more widely used in embedded products. Support for those processors was initiated in the official Linux kernel by Bootlin (formerly Free Electrons) engineer Maxime Ripard in 2012, and has since then been improved up to the point where actual Allwinner-based products are being shipped with the official Linux kernel.
However, one key feature that is missing from the support in the official Linux kernel is support for the VPU (Video Processing Unit). This unit allows to offload to the hardware the decoding and encoding of video streams, avoiding the need to involve the CPU for such intensive operations. Having VPU support would provide a smoother video decoding/encoding experience, at a much lower CPU consumption.
A lot of existing work has already been done around supporting Allwinner’s VPU (including by Bootlin, see below), and the goal of this Kickstarter is to build on top of this work to complete VPU support and have it supported in the official Linux kernel.
It is worth mentioning that this goal is listed as one of the High Priority projects of the Free Software Foundation."
"Blossom Detective Holmes is a first of its kind independent animated mini-series filled with suspense, mystery, and action. Not a lot of anime is produced in America, so Blossom is taking the first steps to make that happen! The goal of the show is to introduce a new genre into mainstream American animation that will be based on mature topics such as crime, murder, and serious drama. This genre of animation is very uncommon in animated shows, and you can be a trendsetter by supporting Blossom Detective Holmes and bringing it to market!
The first case in the series, Selfie with a Strange Intruder, begins with two teenage detectives, Skylar Holmes and her partner Jamie, as they take on the case of a suspicious robbery from their client, Mr. Edvard. Skylar and Jamie both have unique skills that make them the best in the business. Skylar has the instincts of an expert detective and a heightened sense of smell, almost hound like, that allows her to gather data through scent alone. Jamie, on the other hand, is meticulous and uses visible evidence and logic to uncover the truth. Jamie also carries a special Polaroid camera that can transport them anywhere in the world with a quick snap of the camera.
The show is created, produced, and directed by Steve Ahn, a distinguished director and artist known for his work on DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender, Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Legend of Korra, and more. Steve and Team Holmes aim to make a series that will be filled with twists and turns that will leave you craving more! Blossom Detective Holmes is a crime mystery suspense genre made for an audience of young adults and up! "

"We really want to make it happen: a PowerPC notebook released as Open Source. This first phase will achieve the identification and design of all aspects of the motherboard thanks to a contracted professional electronic engineer.
We really want to make it happen: a PowerPC notebook released as Open Source.
To achieve this goal a series of tasks must be performed, such as designing a custom motherboard that would fit into an existing mainstream notebook chassis.
Since October 2014, when the project was launched, the number of people showing interest had been steadily increasing, and we are now quite a few experience volunteers, some of whom are able to contribute in reviewing and checking aspects of the required electronic design. Unfortunately, after all this years we are stuck, because of the lack of either spare time, or engineer capabilities and professional skills.
In order to solve the situation, in 2016 we approached the Italian firm ACube Systems a company that have some experience in designing PowerPC motherboards. We were lucky, as we found a group of passionate people that shared the long-term advantages of the Open Hardware philosophy, and their prior experience in designing a variety of PowerPC motherboards makes them an ideal choice as a partner. Together with ACube we will be able to get the electronic design done, but a professional electronic designer has to be paid.
At this point the group involved in the project decided to get serious and launch a fundraising campaign to pay for the required job."
"If this crowdfunding campaign is successfully funded, we will:
Host the World's First Giant Fighting Robot Tournament in the San Francisco Bay Area in Q4 2018, where 4 teams will compete for the international title. This event will be live, unscripted, and professionally livestreamed. We will confirm a final date with our fans 6 months in advance. There is a possibility this date will be pushed back if teams aren't ready, or if arenas aren't available, but we will communicate with our fans every step of the way. We are no longer under any NDAs like we were during the Giant Robot Duel, and are free to communicate about our plans openly.
Make our MK2-class Iron Glory robot open source, so anyone in the world can build their own mech. It should be possible to build all of the components of a MK2-class robot in a garage, so long as you assemble it outside...
Produce MegaBots Season 2, where we show you our own R&D AND the progress of teams around the world as they prepare their mechs for the tournament.
Host a series of MegaBots LIVE! events at our headquarters, where you get to be up close and personal with the robots and watch us test new technology/rules/weapons/etc live.
Посмотрел Under the Dog. Весьма странно, что ГГ появляется в последние 5 минут эпизода, хотя и логично для нулевого эпизода. А ещё, оказывается, музыку к нему делал Кевин Пенкин (Made in Abyss). Ниппон стронк доставил. В целом 7/10.
А также следующая кампания:
"Hello everyone in Kickstarter land! EXIT TUNES here, official partner of UNDER THE DOG. A year has passed since the release of the 30 minute Episode 0. And now, following all the love and support our backers have shown, we wanted to create new cinematographic pieces for a special edition of the movie so more people can enjoy the world of UNDER THE DOG.
The "UNDER THE DOG Episode 0 Special Edition" will consist of two main parts:
1. Monologue & Live Action Short UNDER THE DOG Episode 0 is a depiction of young girls, their battles, and the burden of their violent fate. In this companion work to the original, entitled OVERTURE to UNDER THE DOG, our heroine Anthea as voiced by Asami Seto will tell her story through a personal monologue in a live action film that will deepen the message and world of UNDER THE DOG.
2. New Theme Song & Music Video
UNDER THE DOG will also get a new end theme song and accompanying music video, sung by Asami Seto, the voice of Anthea! We are pulling out all the stops for a grandiose end theme song with the anime super hit K-On! tag team of video director and musical creator Atsushi Isoyama as producer and lyricist Shoko Omori spearheading the project.
With these two elements to compliment Episode 0, the run time for the feature will total about 50 minutes, which we plan to release in theaters all across Japan. The completed feature is then planned for an international release on DVD/ Blu-ray.
We are especially excited because we want to vigorously push ahead with an UNDER THE DOG TV anime series, and a successful project will be our next step there! UNDER THE DOG’s shining moment has yet to come, and we humbly ask for your support to help reach the light!"
"The time has finally come. After 2 long years of designing, building, and testing giant robots, we are going up against Suidobashi Heavy Industry, and you can watch the showdown NEXT WEEK - on Tuesday, October 17th, at 7:00PM Pacific Time. We will be streaming the Giant Robot Duel on our newly-started Twitch channel! You'll be able to see it live here: https://go.twitch.tv/megabotsinc We'll post the Duel video to YouTube and Facebook immediately after.
The schedule for the Duel stream is as follows:
7:00PM - Suidobashi and MegaBots backstory videos to get everyone up to speed
7:30PM - THE GIANT ROBOT DUEL!
8:00PM - Live Q&A with the MegaBots team
We can't show you the full version of what Suidobashi brought to the Duel just yet, but... suffice it to say, it was pretty epic. They gained a few tons, and a whole bunch of horsepower, over the past two years.
In case you missed it, here's the 12-ton, 16-foot-tall, 430-horsepower robot that we're bringing to the Duel BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP! "
"RWBY: Combat Ready is a cooperative board game where 2-4 players join forces to take on fierce RWBY villains and slay monstrous Grimm!
Here at Rooster Teeth, we have created great shows like Red vs. Blue, RWBY, Camp Camp, and more. We took our first step in the physical game industry in 2016 when we crowdfunded and created the party card game Million Dollars, But… The Game. This year, we’re taking a massive leap forward and trying our hand at a board game.
To leap into the world of board games as strongly as possible, we needed an amazing guide and developer with us. RWBY: Combat Ready is a joint creation between Rooster Teeth and Arcane Wonders, creators of other great board games like Sheriff of Nottingham, Mage Wars, and Viral.
Stories have been written, art has been drawn, and original characters have been created in every shape and form. Now you and your friends can each play as one of the four main RWBY characters. Be Ruby Rose and rise to victory with her Crescent Rose; slice and dice the Grimm as Weiss Schnee, wielding her Myrtenaster; join in and fire from afar as Blake Belladonna with her Gambol Shroud; or leap in and create massive explosions as Yang Xiao Long with her Ember Celica.
We’re making RWBY: Combat Ready, but we’re not able to do this alone. We need your help. We have a game idea, basic pieces, and a board, but we still have the ability to upgrade and mold this game to fit what everyone wants. Better pieces? More creatures to fight or heroes to play as? Every pledge from you amazing Backers can help shape RWBY: Combat Ready to be a board game that RWBY fans and board game enthusiasts alike want to play.
We have a super cool How to Play video coming very soon featuring the cast and crew of RWBY and RWBY: Combat Ready.
RWBY: Combat Ready is an exciting cooperative game for 2-4 players. It captures the flavor and excitement of the series, with fast-paced battles where all players are actively involved and engaged at the same time.
Players play as one of the four main heroines in the series: Ruby, Weiss, Blake, or Yang. Each player has their own separate deck of cards representing their attacks, actions, and moves. Each character plays a little differently, using their own unique tactics and strategies.
Before each game, players choose a scenario to play from the scenario book. Each scenario will have them fighting one or more battles. Battles are against a particular villain, with a particular set of rules, and may include one or more objectives. No two battles are ever the same!"
