300 Years of FOSSIL FUELS in 300 Seconds - YouTube
*** (19. MARCH 2011) WINNER OF YOUTUBE'S BEST NONPROFIT VIDEO AWARD!!! ***

Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we're reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we're in for an exciting ride. While there's a real risk that we'll fall off a cliff, there's still time to control our transition to a post-carbon future.

A deeper analysis of the crises we face, and possible solutions we can work on right now can be had HERE: http://j.mp/PCReader

‪Fair Use School: Response to YouTube's Copyright School Video‬‏ - YouTube
This is my winning entry for Public Knowledge's video contest to create a response to YouTube's new "copyright school" video.

While YouTube's video is generally informative about copyright law and user generated video, it falls short when it comes to its description of fair use, an exception to copyright protection that allows you to incorporate copyrighted content into your videos without the permission of the copyright holder. This video describes fair use in an easy-to-understand way, and shows that rather than being a bunch of complicated legalize that ordinary YouTube users could never understand, fair use is a simple principle that you can use as a weapon to fight abusive takedown notices and get your videos restored when they are blocked for copyright infringement.

Animation without Borders: Mobile Cartoons as a Teaching Tool | MobileActive.org
The SAWBO team originally looked into the possibility of live action videos, but found the translated voice-overs challening; a live action video would require the team to re-film over and over for every language and translation.

Animation was the answer, said founder and university faculty member Barry Pittendrigh. With animation, the team could “get very technical ideas across in a very clean way,” and it is easier to do voice-overs with animation. The animation format can also be easily understood by low literate learners, in their own language, he said.

Teenagers draw on animation film to highlight plight of child soldiers | Society | The Guardian
Dili Diey, 25, fled to England from southern Sudan as a boy soldier and now lives in Huddersfield. "Count yourselves lucky to be at peace in Kirklees. Killing someone haunts you for the rest of your life," he tells a group of young people from four Kirklees schools.

Diey's harrowing story features in the animated film, Untold Stories, part of a new campaign, Books Not Bullets, to highlight the plight of child soldiers. Books Not Bullets is the brainchild of a group of Kirklees teenagers after they heard firsthand Diey's tales of genocide survivors.

The Girl Effect Parodied | Visualising Women's Rights
Although the video has some really nice visuals and is a good example of the creative use of typography, it fails to adequately capture its audience because it oversimplifies the issue of social development.

When watching this video on Youtube, you'll quickly notice a string of parody videos showing up in the suggestions panel. “The Idiot Effect”, created by the people from Corrupt.org, not only pokes fun at the campaign video but the creators of it too. It jokingly suggests that the world's problems can be solved by “buying Nike sneakers”and ultimately implies that The Girl Effect is another example of “corporate brainwashing”.
