Tron and Cgi in Movies

...When TRON was released in July of 1982 it was considered groundbreaking in its use of computer generated imagery (CGI). In his original review of TRON in the Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert (1982) called it “…a dazzling movie from Walt Disney in which computers have been used to make themselves romantic and glamorous.” He also added that, “In an age of amazing special effects, TRON is a state-of-the-art movie.” By comparing the way that CGI is used in a movie to its rank based on total gross sales it will show that CGI movies have steadily become more popular and dominate in gross sales since TRON was released. TRON was created by Steven Lisberger in 1976 when he came up with the idea for what he called a neon warrior at his own design studio in California. He also took inspiration from the original game of Pong. In an interview almost two decades later Lisberger said, “And what happened was, I saw Pong, and I said, well, that's the arena for him.” (Lisberger, 2010). This statement was in reference to what would become the arena duel where discs of light are hurled at their opponent. Along with creating TRON he wrote the script and directed the movie. Lisberger was also the producer of TRON: Legacy which was released in December of 2010. The movie centers around Kevin Flynn who finds himself transported inside of a circuit board to the world within. In this computer world when programs are no longer needed they are forced to fight other obsolete programs in arena......

Cgi in Hollywood Cinema

...Kenneth Stokes Writing and Rhetoric 1 April 14th, 2013 CGI and Practical Effects in Film It’s hard to believe that the first real use of what we know as computer-generated imagery (CGI) took place in a feature film, Westworld, which was in 1973. But it would be another 20 years before Hollywood experienced a real revolution in special effects, when photorealistic dinosaurs rampaged though Jurassic Park, a Michael Crichton-inspired theme-park-gone-wrong movie. The concept of today’s level of 3D CGI animation is an evolution from basic cartoon animation into a simulated world that seeks to represent realism as accurately as possible. It does this by slicing up the world into the smallest segments possible, and then controlling how those tiny parts of the real world objects move, react and change based on the other objects and conditions within that 3D world (See fig. 1). The history of computer-generated imagery goes hand in hand with the history of the computer, as the computer evolved CGI effects got possible. For the origins of computer-generated imagery we need to go back to the year 1968. In this year a group of Russian mathematicians and physicists headed by N.Konstantinov created a mathematic model of a moving cat across a screen. A program was made for a specialized computer called BESM-4. The computer printed hundreds of frames to be later converted into usable film material. In the 1970′s CGI really got a hold in the designing community. With many people......

Strategy

...Conclusion 8   Introduction To establish strategy is an indispensible part of any organisation. It plays an important role in directing and helping organisation to achieve the objectives. In this context, the strategy is considered as the way which organisations communicate with the competitive landscape to obtain the above average return. Therefore, to build an effective strategy, there is a need for profoundly understanding the competitive environment and estimating correctly the resource of organisation. This essay will examine the role of strategy as a “bridge” in order to assist firms to reach their targets in the competitive landscape. Definition There are many ways to definite strategy, however, it can be found that almost of them accept that ‘Strategy is an integrated and coordinated set of commitments and actions designed to exploit core competencies and gain a competitive advantage’. (Hitt, Ireland and Hoskinsson 2009). Organisational resources include skills of employees, finances, capital equipments, patents and talented managers (Hit, Ireland and Hoskinsson 2009). Organisation resource is defined as ‘an asset, competency, process, skill, or knowledge controlled by the corporation’ (Wheelen and Hunger 2002). Competitive landscape is more complex in the context of globalisation; however, the fundamental constituents of landscape are customers, suppliers and competitors. Method To prove the ‘bridge’ characteristic of strategy between organisation and......

...excitement, expostulating about a thick book he held in his hands. “Here it is,” he exclaimed, “it cost $2 million. The best strategy ever! Now the question is, ‘is it implementable?’” We then watch his face fall as, one by one, his executives consider the question and reply “No.” Numerous studies have noted the very weak relationship of strategy formulation to strategy execution. Fortune Magazine stated that “Less than 10% of strategies effectively formulated are effectively executed.” Companies large and small worldwide spend billions of dollars each year on strategy formulation. A search of the World Wide Web using Google™ took less than 1/3 of a second to return more than 1.3 million hits on strategy consulting, ranging from the “Big 6” firms to boutique firms specializing in strategy. Interestingly, a similar search for strategy implementation consulting returned less than 500,000 hits. Even allowing for overlap this is a significant disconnect. If Fortune is correct, only one of ten companies that do an effective job of formulating strategy are doing equally effective jobs of implementing it. For the rest, presumably, the well-crafted strategy is lost in the press of day-to-day tactical concerns or is left to languish in a report on the CEO’s bookshelf. Yet very few people would deny that, in today’s fast-moving fast-changing business world, strategy, with its long-range perspective, is critical. By analogy, if the guidance system on an airplane or ocean liner is not......

...STRATEGY 1 The planning process 1 Position analysis 2 Product Life Cycle 4 Internet strategy 6 Pricing 9 Mergers and acquisitions -- Strategic aspects 16 Strategy THE PLANNING PROCESS There are 2 theories about where the planning process should start: Accountancy led Where objectives are set independently of the environment - i.e. road works need to be done on the M5 at some stage, therefore we will do them even if it is the August Bank Holiday. This is often production rather than market led. Marketing led Where the starting point is reached only after the environment is well known. By knowing the market, planning ^ have a better basis. Prior to doing any planning we need to know: • Who we are: the Mission Statement and defining SBUs may help here • Where we are: where all the various position analysis tools can be used Alternatively, The Chaos Theory advocates assume that all planning is nonsense: no matter how much planning is done. something will go wrong. The Mission Statement To give direction during the planning process, an underlying mission statement is often used The mission statement, in simple terms, tells the world who we are and what we are striving to do. It can, therefore, be a motivational statement for the benefit of employees or a......

In other words, it is usually based on a company’s products, long-term goals, management and culture. And hard for competitors to imitate, which makes them a powerful source of sustainable competitive advantage1 . Before we get in field of how to use intangible assets, we need to know how to measure intangible assets, and embed it in the context of the strategy the company is pursuing.

Furthermore, three components are generally recognized: Human Capital, Information Capital and Organization Capital. Only when the intangible assets closely related to a company’s strategy, then these will create value for the company. Here is a importance questions: how to know whether these assets and your strategy is perfect fit?

Heineken Strategy

...Heineken Organizational strategy: Heinekens strategy is based on six business priorities they found most important. 1. Grow the Heineken brand 2. Consumer-inspired, consumer-oriented and brand-led 3. Capture the opportunities in emerging markets 4. Leverage the benefits of Heineken’s global scale 5. Drive personal leadership 6. Embed and Integrate Sustainability Considering these six priorities and adapting the strategic types from Miles and Snow, we think Heineken is a prospector. Due to their continued search for market opportunities in emerging markets, Heinekens on-going search of new ways to connect with the consumers and the personal drive of leadership. One of their first major international successes was after World War 2, when the German beer brewers still had to build up a brand. Heineken took their beer overseas to the Unites States of America. There Heineken became an exclusive beer, imported beer was not for everybody. They got this image of an exclusive beer because a Heineken beer was twice as expensive as a normal beer. Heineken distinguished it self in the American market because the Dutch beer had an alcohol percentage of 5%, whereas the American beers had a percentage of 3%. Heinekens break through found place in the ’70, when the prosperity in the USA rose, the people could afford the exclusive Heineken beer. Heineken did not only have successes in emerging markets or with introducing new products. One of their failures was the......

It Strategy

...Executing IP Strategy with ICM Process Implementation By Bruce Story, Senior Advisor, ipCapital Group Introduction: Background from Dow While leading Intellectual Capital Management (ICM) in the Plastics Business at The Dow Chemical Company, I witnessed the value of having a business-aligned IP strategy, implemented early in the development of a new technology platform. The difference between leaving IP development to the ad hoc process dependent on the initiative of the inventor and using IP strategy to guide R&D and new business development can be immense. The high performance elastomers business platform developed at Dow in the last decade is worth over a billion dollars. With the increasingly global competitive environment, this never would have been sustained without the implementation of an IP strategy that took into account the business strategy, competitors’ patenting strategies, the product value chain, and providing a closecoupling of actionable IP strategy to the R&D staff. Previously, as is common in many companies, the IP strategy was basically a legal strategy for obtaining patents. Dow’s attorneys were very good at getting patents granted. However, the disclosing of inventions was left to the initiative of the inventors who were often too busy with their projects to document their inventions. The “Inventor-of-the–Year” Award went to the inventor who received the most U.S. patents in the previous year. Quantity was being rewarded rather than IP...

...IT Strategies? A Study on how organizations describe their IT Strategies. Masters Thesis in Business Administration (FED 006) Author Stephen Rupia Lyabandi Executive Summary Title: Do organizations have IT Strategies? A Study on how organizations describe their IT Strategies. Author: Stephen Rupia Lyabandi Tutor: Anders Hederstierna Problem: The research problem of this study is lack of insight on how organizations describe their IT strategies in relation to other strategies. IT strategy continues to be a major challenge for Information Technology intensive organizations and managers. Over the last two decades, the way researchers on information systems have viewed and analyzed IT strategy in organizational systems has not significantly been modified. Recent studies show that one of the main problems is that the concept of IT strategy has been around for nearly two decades and although many organizations have been using it, the meaning and reference of the idea remains elusive. Those who have attempted to define it have not reached an agreement. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to define the problem and explore whether organizations have IT strategies, and how these are describe in relation to other strategies. This research study also investigates how these organizations incorporate IT components into their strategies.......
