The people have spoken! They must have Gadget Class!
With all these devices being thrown at us, wouldn’t it be nice to have someone actually show us how to use them? Are we supposed to know this stuff by osmosis or what? (For that matter, nobody ever showed us how to do Taxes either, but that’s another story.)
If you are looking to have a new website built,
then I'd like to tell you about Joomla!
Joomla! is a one of the most popular website platforms today. Joomla! is a CMS or "Content Management System". It is open-source, free software. It is standards compliant and mobile device friendly.
Mobile-friendliness, also called 'Responsive Design' is more than just a convenience. These days it is a necessity, because more and more people are visiting websites on their phones and tablets. It will really help your Google rankings. Last year saw the infamous 'Google Mobile-geddon'; when Google changed the way it ranks websites, favoring those that are Responsive. So if your site is not responsive, odds are that it will not see page one in search results.
The Kim Loo Sisters Documentary is still in the hunt for funding.
We recently made it into the finals for the Paley Center for Media DocPitch Competition.
Our producer Leslie Li will be pitching our documentary.
What is the DocPitch competition? According to their website: "How do you sell a documentary? Watch and learn as five preselected up-and-coming nonfiction filmmakers pitch their ideas before a live audience and a group of eminent documentarians. The panel of experts will evaluate the proposals for uniqueness and viability, as well as offering the emerging filmmaker helpful feedback. The winner will be awarded a $5,000 grant from A&E IndieFilms to be used toward the completion of the pitched film. The audience will learn valuable lessons in communicating ideas and will also get to cast its vote. Past winners of this contest, now in its eleventh year, include the acclaimed films The Age of Love, Circo, and Herman’s House."
