Jeremih to headline SpringFest 2016
This year’s SpringFest headliner is R&B and hip hop artist Jeremih. Joining him in the lineup is Kat Dahlia along with two student openers, Boris the Scientist and Yuseff.
Behind the scenes of Zootopia
Nick Orsi is a Visual Development Artist from Disney who spent a year working on developing Nick Wilde, the con artist fox protagonist of Zootopia. After a special animation presentation to the MIT community, I sat with him for a quick conversation.
Zootopia is humorous but drives home a hard message
Animated movies can be fun for adults, but they’re aimed at kids. And at first, Zootopia feels like purely a kid’s movie with a straightforward plot that we’ve seen before: two clashing personalities must come together to save the day. But as the plot shifts, building up to the movie’s core message, you find yourself engaging with it on a level uncommon to a typical kid’s movie. And that’s where the magic happens.
Institute Double Take
Sunsets in my home state of Florida are usually pretty boring, but here in Cambridge they can be quite spectacular. I walked out of the student center and had to run back in to grab a camera.
