“It was great to see another series in the Ghost in the Shell universe appear but […] I designed all sound effects and wrote all music for this version. […] I had fun creating this score though and I hope you will enjoy it.”

Early Motion Graphics

Notwithstanding the early forays into foto-dynamacism, the early poets enjoyed a foray into moving motion picture and accompanying sound (1913). A quick glance at some early motion graphics. First some early Dadaist expressionism from 1923 with added sound, (the sound was added as an afterthought). The Dada movement was very early mixing poetry with film; and some simple stopmotion which could be considered the beginning of motion on film.

A Definition (or two)


1. In classical webdesign (which has been around all of 6 years or more), there was an inherit difference/fault between Internet Explorer, Navigator, Safari, Opera and Firefox. This fault (aptly dubbed a ‘feature’ ) by certain developers that I know, caused a shift in a floated layer (.div), which would be interpreted differently in each different browser, and thus causing a layout to break.

Things like margins, paddings and the complexity (amount of nested layers in the layout) amongst other things would influence the effect of this shift. It is also the reason why most front-end webdevelopers today still prefer using seperate CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for IE and different clusters of browsers.

2. In digital cameras (camcorders) with CCD chips. Pixelshifting is used to raise the resolution of lens image to digital data. The CCD chip is moved half a pixel vertical and horizontally in steps to have a finer sample method. A higher resolution of sampling to approach full-HD via with CCD chip with less physical CCD. It is interesting to note that a CCD chip takes a snapshot of the entire frame and a CMOS sensor takes a gradual snapshot called a rolling shutter, effectively making it less responsive for higher frame rate sampling.
