Ghostbot, Inc. Reboots Emily the Strange with First Animated Single "Calling All Guitars"

Ghostbot, Inc. Reboots Emily the Strange with First Animated Single "Calling All Guitars"

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rising independent animation studio Ghostbot, Inc. in partnership with the creator of Emily the Strange, Rob Reger, released its premiere of the animated music video of "Calling All Guitars" on iTunes. The video features music produced by the award winning John King (Beastie Boys) and is the first ever Emily the Strange animated single in a planned line-up of regularly released music accompanied with animation.

Created by Reger, Emily is the iconic 13-year-old girl with the black dress, four black cats, and a strange personality that doesn't quite fit in anywhere. Her motto, appropriate for today's youth, is "Be Yourself, Think for Yourself, Do It Yourself." The 'Calling All Guitars' music video introduces brand new characters alongside the inventor and rock-n-roll scientist Emily the Strange.

Ghostbot, Inc. is no stranger to operating with fast turn around times. "We are used to getting maximum bang for the buck," Director Brad Rau said. "That creative maneuverability was key in executing 'Calling all Guitars.'"

Rau a fan of Emily himself goes on to state, "We enjoy working with Rob, and have been big fans of Emily for a long time. Our goal for 'Calling All Guitars' was to highlight Emily's fun personality and bring her to life with as much dark rocking intensity as possible. We really pushed her expression and posing and are very happy with how up tempo and rhythmic the whole piece turned out."


Emily the Strange was created in the early 1990's and quickly became a beloved counterculture icon all around the world. In her earliest years, she was a quiet but sharp-witted stranger, slinging philosophy and cultural observations in a series of hand-screened t-shirts and stickers that grew to a series of gift books, comic-books, graphic novels, a young adult novel series, and now music. Emily continues to be a voice for individualism and self-awareness


Formed in 2004 with over 50 years of combined experience in the entertainment sector, the principals of Ghostbot work tirelessly to deliver the highest quality product. Throughout the history of the company, the award winning studio has come to be recognized as one of the premier creative forces in the animation industry.

Other guests include LL Cool J, Kerry Washington, Johnny Knoxville, Vince Vaughn, Taye Diggs, Ray Romano, Ellen Pompeo, Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg and musical guests Janelle Monae, James Blunt, Gavin DeGraw, Jewel, Daughtry and more.

In addition to the mega-watt star power of her celebrity guests, Queen will also shine a spotlight on heroes from our military, our schools and our communities as she and her viewers give thanks for their service and pull off some incredible surprises including emotional reunions for active military personnel, jaw-dropping makeovers and unbelievable home transformations to reward them for their sacrifices and life-changing efforts.

More than 350 guests entered the ballroom, transformed into a dramatic, jaw-dropping, multi-dimensional homage to the Big Apple.

The real stars of the evening were the current Tisch students, singing, dancing and stomping their way through a montage of show-stopping numbers, each met with thunderous applause. Their opening, "New York City Mash Up" was an eight minute salute to NYC themed songs, against a video background of iconic New York City landmarks.

Co-host Steve Kazee performed the Oscar winning "Falling Slowly" with backup from Tisch students.

Honorary Chair Steve Tisch welcomed attendees before Kazee introduced Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley who presented the Tisch Big Apple Award to Liza Chasin. "I remember I asked around about film schools and everyone told me, 'if you want to work in the business, go to LA, but if you love film go to Tisch.' I chose love and fortunately for me, I got the best of both!"

Award-winning writer and Tisch alumnus, Stanley Weiser presented to his writing partner, Oliver Stone. After the chiding of Steve Tisch and his NY Giants, Stone explained the difficulty he had adjusting to life after Viet Nam, but learned about the Tisch film school. "I entered back into civilization at Tisch. Forty years later, I'm still here...still trying to write and direct...still waiting for that bell to ring or that ax to fall."

Dean Mary Schmidt Campbell (retiring in August, 2014 after a 23 year career as the driving force behind Tisch) summed up the Tisch experience. "When Tisch students become Tisch graduates, they repay us over and over. They have changed the way we think about some of the central ideas of our time. Chances are their work has touched you in some way."

Marc Webb and Hans Zimmer Form Supergroup to Create Music for "The Amazing Spider-Man(TM) 2"; Members Include Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, and Dave Stewart

CULVER CITY, Calif., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oscar®- and Grammy-winning composer Hans Zimmer will work with Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, and Dave Stewart to create music for The Amazing Spider-Man(TM) 2, it was announced today by Lia Vollack, president of Worldwide Music for Sony Pictures. The film, directed by Marc Webb from a screen story and screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, is produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released in theaters domestically on May 2, 2014, and international release dates commence April 16, 2014.

Commenting on the announcement, Zimmer said, "Marc and I were talking about Spider-Man, and as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man. That was the thing that united all of us - the great love for Spider-Man. With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, 'Why not start a band?' Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve."

Vollack added, "This kind of collaboration is only possible because of who Marc Webb is - not only a director but also a musician - combined with who Hans is and what Spider-Man means to so many people. Nobody has ever approached film music in this way before and this likely can never be replicated. We're huge fans of Hans, Pharrell, Johnny, Mike, and Dave, and when combined, we know the result will be truly unique ... and amazing!"

Zimmer, a nine-time Oscar® nominee and winner for his work on The Lion King, previously collaborated with Williams on the film Despicable Me, as Williams produced four original solo songs and several other character-sung pieces. They later collaborated on the music for the 84th Annual Academy Awards®. Marr played on Zimmer's score for the hit film Inception, Einziger played on his score for The Lone Ranger, and Stewart played with Zimmer on the score for Madagascar 3.

Hans Zimmer has composed the scores for more than 100 films taking in more than 17 billion dollars. His many credits include scoring the Pirates of the Caribbean blockbusters, Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, 12 Years a Slave, Rush, Man of Steel, Sherlock Holmes, The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, Gladiator, The ThinRed Line, Rain Man, and many, many more. He has been honored with an Academy Award®, two Golden Globes and four Grammys. In 2003, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers presented him the prestigious Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement for his impressive and influential body of work.

Pharrell Williams, a three-time Grammy winner, is one of the world's most in-demand and influential music producers and recording artists. This summer, Williams became the 12th artist to hold the #1 and #2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously as he was featured on two songs - Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," also featuring T.I., which Williams also produced, and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," which Williams co-wrote - both of which have been called the "Song of Summer." He has previously composed songs and the score for the hit animated films Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2.

Johnny Marr rose to fame as co-songwriter and founder member of The Smiths. Since then, Marr has continued to push boundaries and work with some of the world's most exciting musical artists, including Modest Mouse, The The, Pet Shop Boys, Talking Heads, and Beck. This year NME awarded Marr the Godlike Genius award. He recently released the critically acclaimed solo album, "The Messenger."

Michael Einziger is the founder/guitarist/songwriter for the groundbreaking band Incubus. "Wake Me Up," the worldwide smash he co-wrote with Avicii, has been #1 in 70 countries. As an acclaimed record producer, he produced/co-wrote/executive produced three projects set for release in the coming months: Chuck Inglish, Yuna and the Internet (Odd Future). In addition to scoring the Josh Duhamel film Scenic Route he has scored Supremacy and is working on three additional film projects. Einziger previously collaborated with Zimmer on The Lone Ranger, for which he composed additional music.

Dave Stewart is recognized as one of the most respected and accomplished talents in the music industry. "He's the musician's musician." - Rolling Stone. Stewart's music career spans three decades and more than 100 million album sales, highlighted by his collaboration with Annie Lennox in the groundbreaking pop-rock duo Eurythmics. Behind the scenes, he has produced albums and co-written songs for Bono, Bryan Ferry, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Katy Perry, and Mick Jagger. Beyond his creative work as a musician, he is a renowned producer, author, director, photographer, filmmaker, and philanthropist. Stewart recently released a solo album, Lucky Numbers.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan GT Academy returns to U.S. television for its third season, determining once again which of America's best racers from PlayStation®3 driving simulator Gran Turismo®6 have what it takes to make the jump from the couch to the cockpit to become a professional racing driver.

Season 3, Episode 1 of Nissan GT Academy debuts on SPIKE TV at 10:30pm ET/9:30pm CT on Monday, November 11. Five 30-minute episodes will air each Monday, leading up to a one-hour season finale on December 16, in which a winner will be crowned. Episodes will also air with a one-week delay on MTV2 starting November 18, and every episode will be available on the Nissan YouTube channel the Thursday after its original air date.

"We are excited to announce the third season of the GT Academy show and to further our relationship with PlayStation and SPIKE TV after last year's success. At Nissan, performance and excitement is at the heart of our brand, and the third season will deliver both for our audience. We are confident the Season 3 winner will demonstrate speed, strength and soul: all qualities of a Nissan Motorsports Athlete that will translate into success on the track for Nissan," said Jon Brancheau, vice president, Marketing, Nissan North America.

The show, arace from virtual to reality, provides the top Gran Turismo drivers with a chance to become a professional racing driver for Nissan. Over 400,000 racing enthusiasts registered for the competition, with the top 32 contenders making it to the National Finals in New York City. This year, in a change from the previous two seasons, the finals saw the contestants get whittled down to just 12 finalists after a series of virtual, media and real-life driving challenges.

Over the course of the six-part series, the 12 finalists are put through the paces on the track at Silverstone in the U.K. to determine one Nissan GT Academy winner. The competition includes a variety of physical, psychological and athletic challenges in addition to extensive track time in Nissan 370Z NISMOs, Nissan GT-Rs and the Nissan JUKE NISMO.

The show is hosted by ex-NFL player Dhani Jones. Judges for Season 3 include returning racing stars Danny Sullivan and Boris Said, with former racer and GT Academy instructor Rob Barff joining the expert panel for Season 3.

A Nissan GT Academy First Person online experience was created to provide a fun interactive element for fans of the show. Using video and motion tracking, users get to experience the action firsthand and feel what it's like to be behind the wheel of a racecar. Videos are accessible via web browser, tablet or phone, and once completed, users can share their performance with friends on Facebook.

The GT Academy program is currently running in six regions: Europe, Russia, Germany, South Africa, the Middle East and the United States. Winners from the program have gone on to compete professionally in racing competitions around the world. Inaugural GT Academy Europe winner Lucas Ordonez won the Pro-Am division championship of this year's Blancpain Endurance Series in a Nissan GT-R, while numerous GT Academy winners won pole positions and finished on the podium at a variety of races around the world in 2013.

The GT Academy program was developed in partnership with TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles, OMD and RadicalMedia. The TV series is directed by Jeff Zwart. Critical Mass is responsible for the First Person online experience.

Huntington Beach Union High School District Teams Up with UC Irvine and Instructure to "De-Zombify" Education at Techoween Event

Huntington Beach Union High School District Teams Up with UC Irvine and Instructure to "De-Zombify" Education at Techoween Event

-UC Irvine faculty will participate in panel discussion about expanding the boundaries of education through technology

-Instructure spurs innovation within K-12 and higher ed and helps advance the flipped classroom movement through the Canvas learning management system

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Huntington Beach Union High School District's (HBUHSD) Techoween event on October 31 starting at 9 a.m. Pacific will feature insights on technology's role in education by Instructure and University of California, Irvine faculty teaching the massive open online course "Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC's The Walking Dead," on Instructure's Canvas Network.


Themed "Education De-Zombified," Instructure will explore the ways technology can expand the boundaries of learning through several interactive sessions, some of which will be led by students. To broaden the conversation, faculty from nine surrounding school districts, from Rio School District (Oxnard) to Riverside, will also be participating at Techoween, helping establish a culture of learning and sharing best practices throughout the area.

UC Irvine faculty will participate in the following panel discussion:

-- Bringing New Life into Education (9 a.m.)
-- David Theriault, Fountain Valley High School English Language Arts
-- Dr. Connie Mayhugh, HBUHSD Executive Director of Curriculum and
-- Dr. Sarah Eichhorn, UC Irvine Instructor, Assistant Vice Chair for
Undergraduate Studies in Mathematics
-- Dr. Joanne Christopherson, UC Irvine Instructor, Social Sciences
-- Melissa Loble, UC Irvine Associate Dean of Distance Learning and
lead course designer of "The Walking Dead" MOOC
-- HBUHSD students
In addition to its work in higher education, Instructure has helped many K-12 school districts nationwide, including HBUHSD, create digital learning environments for students through its cloud-based Canvas learning platform. Canvas gives students access to learning beyond the classroom and provides instant communication channels between students and teachers. Through Canvas, teachers gain powerful, intuitive tools to provide feedback to students and to incorporate a wide variety of Web 2.0 tools in their classes.

Many instructors, including Chris Long, a physics teacher at Marina High School and educational technology coordinator for HBUHSD, are using Canvas as part of the blended learning/flipped classroom movement. These teaching methods shift from group teaching to personalized learning.

"Students need to have access to all their learning resources outside the classroom and increase their ownership of learning, and Canvas has proven particularly useful in designing an environment that cultivates engagement," said Long. "It is important to include students in our professional development now more than ever, because the role of a teacher has shifted toward modeling learning. We are excited to welcome Instructure and UC Irvine to Techoween, and look forward to a fun and engaging day of learning as we examine the best practices for keeping education fresh and up to date."

As part of its commitment to spur innovation from within the educational system, Instructure recently launched Canvas Grants, a program to award $100,000 in education grants for initiatives in K-12 and higher education.

"We are thrilled to help advance education at events like Techoween, which is further evidence of HBUHSD's dedication to stay on the cutting edge of K-12 technology," said Brian Whitmer, co-founder and chief learning officer at Instructure. "Educators will gain the innovative and practical tech tips they need to infuse life into their curriculum and transform learning, and students will have the chance to learn alongside them and collaborate to develop new avenues of learning."

Tens of thousands of people have already enrolled in "Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC's 'The Walking Dead." To enroll in the course, which is free and currently available to anyone in the world, visit

Techoween will take place from 8:30 a.m. - 3:15 p.m. at the HBUHSD office at 5832 Bolsa Ave., Huntington Beach. For more information, visit
