Taiwan Tabloid Sensation Next Media Recreate News

CmdrTaco posted more than 4 years ago | from the what's-the-story dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 40

Ant writes "Next Media Animation (NWA) became popular due to its animated and sometimes humorous renderings for world news. Their official videos can be found on YouTube." They start by covering the Tiger Woods animation that made these guys known, and then talk about the process and the people behind it. I've attached an Apple video that you might have bumped into recently as well... it's worth the watch if you haven't seen it yet.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Good thing there are quality articles on the sciences to read here. Oh wait, it's just a stupid youtube promotion

Hello and welcome to slashdot.org! Here you'll find a wide variety of articles on a range of topics. Typically they will be demarcated by a category name followed by a colon (:). For example this particular article is labeled with "Entertainment:" mark. You'll also note there exists an icon to the right of the summary which generally follows the topic. In this case we have a foot.

Now, assuming you don't like this story you could:

A) Post a flame attracting dispute about his this does or does not apply to 'nerds', 'news', and/or 'science'

OR

B) Stop electing to view stories labeled with "Entertainment:" or a foot icon.

Have a nice day, and enjoy your '-1' mods!

There are a lot of smart people here at /., and there's the rest of us ... surely the smart people should have figured out that voting on stories doesn't always work to the advantage of the this site. Democracy is the best form of government but it's not necessarily the best way to decide which stories get posted here.

Re:Yay, more crap (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#33430716)

He didn't say vote for it. He said deselect it entirely.

You mean something like the way the new digg.com works?
Or what's left of it anyway ;-)

Phoghat (1288088) | more than 4 years ago | (#33437786)

Actually the best form of government would be a benevolent dictatorship.

Democracy and enumerated powers are tools to keep your dictators benevolent.

Pretty words

But it still has nothing to do with the sciences. It's a news show

headline (1)

canderley (1234622) | more than 4 years ago | (#33429962)

Is it just me, or should there be an "s" at the end of "Recreate?"

"Taiwan Tabloid Sensation Next Media Recreates News" seems to make a lot more sense.

Re:headline (1)

Shikaku (1129753) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430052)

News is plural, so no.

Re:headline (1)

Qzukk (229616) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430292)

"News" has nothing to do with it. In English, verb plurality is determined by the subject, not the object.

The issue is whether or not "Next Media" is plural or not.

Re:headline (1)

WrongSizeGlass (838941) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430464)

"News" has nothing to do with it.

That's right, because this story isn't news ...

Re:headline (2, Interesting)

discord5 (798235) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430982)

"News" has nothing to do with it.

I see what you did there!

Seriously though, slashdot. Is this front-page worthy? What's next? A video of a dog that thinks its people? Do the people running this site even care anymore about the content, or has their inner geek died over the years?

"It's technology related because it's on the internets!" does not make news for nerds.

Re:headline (2, Funny)

FuckingNickName (1362625) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430332)

That's the great thing about Latin - you can put object before subject for emphasis and establish meaning from case.

Oh wait...

Re:headline (2, Informative)

aliddell (1716018) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430524)

News is plural the way sand is plural, and "news" is not verbing; "Next Media" is.

Re:headline (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#33430314)

news: noun pl but singular in constr, often attributive

Adult Swim Anyone? (2, Interesting)

mattwrock (1630159) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430098)

Adult Swim has been running these periodically for about six months now. The first one I remember was Andy Dick causing trouble in a bar....

Seriously? It's like we're not even trying anymore.

Re:wow (1)

rotide (1015173) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430264)

No one around here has been trying for a while. Check out ArsTechnica for the news stories you'll see here in the next few hours/days. When you do get a submission it's just a copy/paste from another site/blog. Really, Slashdot has become nothing more than a really slow news aggregation site with, arguably, the best commentary around. At least I haven't been able to find a suitable replacement in that regard.

Re:wow (2, Insightful)

jgtg32a (1173373) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430484)

Exactly, the comments are the only reason I still come here. There are some really smart people here, as well as the most worthless trolls on the internet.

Re:wow (1)

Arthur Grumbine (1086397) | more than 4 years ago | (#33431270)

/. has the most worthless trolls on the internet?!? Have you been to 4chan? eBaums? Youtube?!

Re:wow (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#33430944)

Check out ArsTechnica for the news stories you'll see here in the next few hours/days.

Don't worry! Ars has been heading the way of the content aggregator for a while now, and has recently started featuring articles from affiliates. It's only a matter of time before Ars turns to shit too. Would you like some more iPhone stories? No? How about some iPad then for a change? There you go.

Soon we'll get meta-articles on slashdot where they repost an article about ars posting an article originally written by Wired about the latest thing in mobile devices. And we all know how shitty Wired is.

Yeah, news for nerds, 3D animations wow, etc

game kid (805301) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430296)

That's just the abbreviation for their nickname, Niggaz With After Effects.

mobby_6kl (668092) | more than 4 years ago | (#33433496)

Yeah, everyone knows that Next Media Animation is correctly abbreviated as NAMBLA.

The future of slashdot (1, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#33430188)

In the unlikely event that geeknet continues [fool.com] to run this site as a going concern, can someone make sure they get the memo about removing the "idle" and "entertainment" sections?

Thanks.

NWA? (1)

jbigboote (1544809) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430198)

why is it NWA, and not NMA?

Re:NWA? (1, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#33430266)

Hey are these cartoons made using "THe Movies" or the Sims??

Re:NWA? (1)

amicusNYCL (1538833) | more than 4 years ago | (#33430340)

You think "Asia's largest animation studio" uses games to do their animating, huh?

Re:NWA? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#33431844)

Yes. Yes I do. The calibur of the productions point to this.

Re:Wow! (1)

drolli (522659) | more than 4 years ago | (#33431624)

Indeed, the article could have tried to be a little more informative.

Questions like: if they recreate a event wrong and its sent as "news" what are the possible legal consequences?

South Park does it better.

Sarah Palin (1)

Tablizer (95088) | more than 4 years ago | (#33432298)

I don't know if this Palin animation is from the same company, but it's funny as hell. Sarah's palm notes are shown with "Norwegians = Dutch, sorta", and with "Drill Baby Drill" crossed off after the BP fiasco. And a Trigger-happy Trigg. (Anybody translate Chinese here?) Enjoy:

No, it's not, and I want those two minutes back.
