Anime Vive

L’idea

Anime vive_ Daniele Frau_libro Anime vive_ Daniele Frau_libro

Circa un anno fa, in questo periodo, prendeva forma una storia: Anime Vive. Questa storia aveva tre interpreti ed era raccontata in presa diretta da tre oggetti. Per quanto stramba possa sembrare, questa storia è stata interamente ispirata dal mondo che passeggia e si lega le scarpe sui marciapiedi di tutto il mondo.

Una vita in viaggio

Ho la fortuna di viaggiare quotidianamente per il mondo, vedendo come gli esseri umani trovino modi diversi per sopravvivere all’alienazione. Il costante senso di abbandono, di abisso dell’umanità, sta risucchiando anche le anime più ardite. Ho deciso dunque di creare una storia in cui un venditore di anime va alla ricerca della sua anima perduta.

La storia si complicherà quando pian piano si scopriranno tutti gli ostacoli che gli si prospettano davanti, siano essi psicologici o con le fattezze di un energumeno con un cappello.

Il libro

Il libro è stato stampato grazie ad un eccellente supporto, Youcanprint, che oltre alla stampa si è preso l’onere della distribuzione. Ad oggi, il libro è presente su Mondadori Store, IBS, ovviamente Youcanprint e tanti altri ancora.

Collaborazioni

Il libro va di pari passo con le immagini che lo accompagnano. Questo grazie alla collaborazione di un artista d’eccezione, Gabriele Manca. Eclettico (la sua Arte va dal disegno, fino alla creazione di oggetti di scena, maschere, fino ad arrivare alle esperienze in campo attori ale e clownistico), Gabriele con la sua DMQ Producions con base ad Rotterdam  ha avuto un impulso determinante per la riuscita del progetto. Non smetterò mai di ringraziarlo.

Prossimi progetti

I prossimi progetti saranno un tour di Anime Vive per tutta Italia, a partire molto probabilmente dalla metà di aprile. Vorrei che in qualche modo la lettura di questo libro e la sua discussione possano dare un punto di vista “altro” e spingere ad una riflessione quotidiana.

Buona lettura,

Daniele Frau

 

Russian!

Russian language

Finally, I did it. After years of dreaming about going back to study Russian, I finally did and with good results. Having a Russian wife helped me, you say? Yes, probably. But you need at the same time to have the will of studying every single day, reading and listening in Russian. And in the last two years I did, more or less every day.

A lot of website

Honestly, if you speak English, there a so many different kind of website and resources to study languages. Youtube is a goldmine if you know what su search. If you’re Italian the number of website and resources are less and less easy to find. But, still you can find something. Few years ago, a person coming from a small city, like myself, couldn’t possibly imagine to study languages such Arabic or Russian. Now it’s quite normal to do so.

The right one

I tried Rosetta Stone, Assimil, and many more. I must say, now my favourite is russianpod101.com . I find it complete, up-to-date and full of resources. Now I have even a personal teacher following me and pushing me to improve my Russian. She asked me to take an exam (not the easiest one, I must say) few weeks ago, and I was surprised when I discovered I passed it.

Every now and then I was thinking if it was right to put new stuff on this big ocean called Internet. With flyingstories I decided not to put anything else if not some stories from our travels around the world, some languages courses and some stories coming straight from my fantasy. What else? Just have a look!

How technology hijacked us

Some days ago I was wondering about technology has changed our lives. At dinner’s time we are used to speak about the day, at school or at work. Now everyone is technology- addicted. Tv, I-something and computers are our new friends. Sometimes we’re more close to a friend 3000 km away than our father or mother.

A great idea

So, using the same technology sometimes I hate, I’ve discovered a new invention which makes me smile. I’m talking about the pepper hacker. It is or it is not the wonderful idea ever?

Let’s look to this video and have a nice day!

New Birth

Today we’re experiencing the second birth of radio. Almost 120 years had passed (119 years, precisely) since Guglielmo Marconi discovered this incredible media. Today, after years of silence, radio kills the tv stars!

Some statistics

News technologies are changing the world in many fields, and media and marketing is the most changeable of this fields. Many people says “radio is a dead media, without future”. But you know what? I don’t think that, and statistics support my thesis. As I’ve already explained in my posts in other blogs, web radio is increasing every day its audience and people working in media/                         communication have to know that. Who says that? Statistics, like that.

Italy, Europe, USA, World?

Nowadays with web radio stations is not easy to know precisely what our audience is. Every countries have different cultures and different approaches, and as usual different statistics. In Germany for example stats reveal a 10% teenagers using web radio not just for music, but for information, too. Pandora, iheart e itunesradio are the most used worldwide radio platforms.

How to open a radio

Launch a new radio channel has never been so easy. You have just to follow a course, in which you understand the basis of radio and then you’ll become a speaker! I did the same and the last week I get started with my idea to have a show (I did it in Rome) with singers, actors and dancers ON AIR! And you know what I experienced? People LOVE radio!
