INTERVIEW WITH DANIELA MARSINO:
YOUR WORK AWARDED A PRIZE AT ANIMOWEB
You took part in the 3rd Edition of aniMOweb on the themes of women and equal opportunities and you won a prize. Congratulations! First we would like to know how you spent the aniMOweb money prize (if you won a money prize). Then, how you created your work: what software did you use?, How long did you take? Did you work alone or with someone? How did you get the idea? Did you expect to win a prize?
I spent the money on furniture for the house I live in.
I used Poser and Flash, it took about a month and my boyfriend helped me with Poser and montage.
For the idea I was helped by aniMOweb site.
I didn't dream about winning 1st prize, even if I was happy about my work.
LIFE OF YOUR WORK AFTER ANIMOWEB
Did you present your work in similar contests or in personal promotions on other sites? Was it selected in other festivals? Did you win other prizes with it?
No, I've never thought about it.
CREATING ANIMATION, GAMES AND INTERACTIVE APPLICATIONS FOR THE WEB
Creating animation, games and interactive sites for the Web: what perspectives do you see for the jobs in this field? What are the key factors to be successful with these activities?
I believe that only at high levels are these professionals required. The key factor is keeping constantly in practice.
IDEA AND EXECUTION
What do you prefer in the creative process, the planning part or the implementation? How would you describe these two phases in your way of creating? Do you keep them separate or do you have a flexible approach?
Definitely the planning part, where fancy is not limited by any technical problem. Afterwards, during creation, the selected idea is adapted to the opportunities offered by technique.
Works produced with Flash: share with us and comment, if you want, some of your favourite bookmarks of sites, animation, games and interactive applications.
Unfortunately, I've got away from the Internet world for months.
ANIMOWEB PROS AND CONS
What do you like best in aniMOweb and what would you change or add?
I like the organisers' enthusiasm very much.
ANIMOWEB ON CONFLICTS, WAR AND PEACE
The 4th Edition of aniMOweb is on the theme of conflicts, cult of war, culture of peace: how do you feel about these subjects? Do they trigger your fancy? Do you think you'll take part?
Yes, even if they look rather complicated.
We would like to know something about your present and future plans. How do you see yourself in 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years? Do you imagine doing the same things you are doing now?
I hope to be able to go on working with graphics.
Last, ask yourself a question and answer it. Or, if you don't want to do it, use this space to proclaim your credo to the visitors of aniMOweb site (don't be too boastful), or describe your political program to convince electors to vote for you (as if there was an election), talk about your philosophy, quote a proverb, a saying, make a drawing, improvise an animated movie in Flash, in short end this interview as you like…
I'll end with a quotation read in a newspaper:
'Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them.'.
