Celebrate #CharacterDay on 20 March 2014 with the release of Tiffany Shlain’s latest film The Science of Character! And you are all invited! No tux or sequins required!
Starting March 20th, The Science of Character will be available online for viewing. This 8 minute film, exploring the neuroscience and social science behind character development, will premiere with ten language translations enabled by Dotsub technology. Challenging the conventional belief that you are stuck with the character attributes you’re born with, the Science of Character shows that is possible for anyone to build up their core character strengths and use them to achieve greater fulfillment.
The film is the fourth installment in the Let it Ripple: Mobile Films for Global Change series, in which the folks at The Moxie Institute Film Studio use the “cloud” to engage filmmakers all over the world to collaborate on short films that inspire action around political, cultural, and social issues.
Naturally, a critical part of this endeavor is language. This creative cloud sourcing includes translations done in partnership with Dotsub. Dotsub is the tool by which the Let It Ripple volunteers from all over the world supply translations in a wide variety of languages. Initially, this film will be available in English, Spanish (Latin America), Swahili, Hindi, German, Chinese (simplified), Russian, French, Romanian, and Arabic. The earlier films in the series have used Dotsub for translations into 70 languages.
The film is free, available on-line here, in whatever time zone you are in. You can access the discussion materials, and join the conversation – just visit the site on or after March 20th.
