Genre: Performing Arts

"A witty romp through the history of My Little Pony that anypony can enjoy, with helpful episode guides and references."--Tara Prescott, editor of Neil Gaiman in the 21st Century "Never in a million years did I think My Little Pony had anything to offer me as a feminist, activist or fangirl. I've been Pony-averse since childhood. Since reading Sherilyn Connelly's hilarious, insightful and information-packed Ponyville Confidential, I’ve never been more excited to be proven wrong. Ponyville is Magic."--Holly Payne, writer, creator, and producer of What Happened? on Comic-Con HQ. Beloved by young girls around the world, Hasbro s My Little Pony franchise has been mired in controversy since its debut in the early 1980s. Critics dismissed the cartoons as toy advertisements, and derided their embrace of femininity. The 2010 debut of the openly feminist My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic renewed the backlash, as its broad appeal challenged entrenched notions about gendered entertainment. This first comprehensive study of My Little Pony explores the history and cultural significance of the franchise through Season 5 of Friendship Is Magic and the first three Equestria Girls films. The brand has continued to be on the receiving end of a sexist double standard regarding commercialism in children s entertainment, while masculine cartoons such as the Transformers have been spared similar criticism. The high-profile fans known as Bronies are also discussed, covering the media s problematic reaction to them and the Bronies response when the My Little Pony cartoons didn t conform to their expectations."

Moving Innovation

Author: Tom Sito
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 9780262314312
Release Date: 2013-04-19
Genre: Computers

Computer graphics (or CG) has changed the way we experience the art of moving images. Computer graphics is the difference between Steamboat Willie and Buzz Lightyear, between ping pong and PONG. It began in 1963 when an MIT graduate student named Ivan Sutherland created Sketchpad, the first true computer animation program. Sutherland noted: "Since motion can be put into Sketchpad drawings, it might be exciting to try making cartoons." This book, the first full-length history of CG, shows us how Sutherland's seemingly offhand idea grew into a multibillion dollar industry. In Moving Innovation, Tom Sito -- himself an animator and industry insider for more than thirty years -- describes the evolution of CG. His story features a memorable cast of characters -- math nerds, avant-garde artists, cold warriors, hippies, video game enthusiasts, and studio executives: disparate types united by a common vision. Sito shows us how fifty years of work by this motley crew made movies like Toy Story and Avatar possible."Books"
