All’Acquario di Genova rinnovata l’aria meduse, le novità di Pasqua | Video

In occasione di Pasqua l’Acquario di Genova si presenta con l’area delle meduse rinnovata, un nuovo calendario di incontri dal vivo con Spongebob, la spugna marina amata dai ragazzi di tutto il mondo e protagonista dell’omonima serie in onda su Nickelodeon, laboratori sul mondo degli invertebrati presso la sala di Spongebob e animazioni a tema lungo il percorso.

All’Acquario di Genova rinnovata l’aria meduse, le novità di Pasqua

Anche la Biosfera, parte integrante del percorso PianetAcquario, rifiorisce per Pasqua ampliando la ricca collezione di orchidee, i bellissimi fiori di origine principalmente tropicale protagonisti di miti, leggende e rappresentazioni artistiche che da sempre occupano un posto privilegiato nella fantasia degli uomini.

Nella struttura si possono inoltre ammirare da vicino diverse specie di uccelli tra cui gli ibis scarlatti e Dust, un esemplare di Cacatua della Molucche, gli insetti stecco oltre alle tantissime piante tropicali.


Spongebob

Il percorso di rinnovamento continuerà per tutta l’estate con nuovi ospiti, aree ed esperienze edutainment ogni mese: a maggio la struttura presenterà una nuova vasca dedicata alle acque fredde delle Coste del Nord Pacifico con diverse specie di invertebrati tra cui un ospite speciale, a giugno l’area storioni nel Padiglione Biodiversità inaugurerà un allestimento con due postazioni gioco che, attraverso la tecnologia kinetic, consentiranno ai visitatori di muoversi virtualmente “immersi” tra questi pesci ossei tanto preziosi quanto minacciati. A luglio, il rinnovamento proseguirà con una postazione interattiva nel Padiglione Cetacei dedicata ai delfini e al progetto di ricerca Delfini Metropolitani dove i partecipanti potranno vestire i panni dei ricercatori e mettersi alla prova nella tecnica della foto identificazione imparando a riconoscere le diverse specie di Cetacei, con particolare riferimento al tursiope.

Da fine maggio per tutto il periodo estivo, inoltre, l’Acquario di Genova proporrà eventi serali speciali per vivere un’esperienza di visita sempre nuova e diversa. Il primo appuntamento è domenica 26 maggio con Alice in Monsterland uno spettacolo teatrale itinerante lungo il percorso espositivo della struttura immerso negli ambienti acquatici del nostro pianeta e liberamente ispirato al celebre romanzo “Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie”.

L’evento teatrale è prodotto da Rst Events, Monster Festival e Costa Edutainment-Acquario di Genova. Sceneggiatura originale ed illustrazioni di Melkio.

Dai giorni prima di Pasqua al secondo piano del percorso espositivo, i visitatori potranno ammirare da vicino nelle 11 vasche dedicate 8 specie di meduse provenienti dai diversi ambienti marini del mondo: Aurelia aurita, Cotylorhiza tuberculata, Rhizostoma pulmo, Cassiopea sp., Chrysaora pacifica, Phyllorhiza punctata, Rhizostoma luteum, Sanderia malayensis.

Nella sala sarà inoltre possibile osservare i diversi stadi del ciclo riproduttivo (polipo – efira –medusa) approfondendo la conoscenza di questi affascinanti animali marini costituiti al 98% di acqua e della straordinaria strategia riproduttiva che consente loro di riprodursi sia per via sessuata sia per via asessuata.

Spongebob all’Acquario – 19-20-21-22-25-27-28 Aprile e 1 Maggio

Nel periodo delle festività pasquali, i giovani appassionati del mondo marino, avranno la possibilità di incontrare dal vivo Spongebob, la simpatica spugna gialla che abita a Bikini Botton per interagire con lui e portare a casa una foto ricordo con il loro personaggio preferito.

Su www.acquariodigenova.it i prezzi di ingresso all’Acquario di Genova variano per il biglietto intero adulto a data e fascia oraria fisse da un minimo di €18 a un massimo di €29 in base ad alcuni parametri tra cui la stagionalità, la data, l’orario di ingresso e la domanda complessiva da parte del pubblico. Il pricing dinamico è applicato a tutte le tipologie di biglietto – Acquario di Genova, PianetAcquario, AcquarioVillage, GalatAcquario – e alle referenze – adulto, ragazzo, ridotto -. Anche le tariffe acquistabili presso la biglietteria tradizionale seguono il nuovo approccio dinamico presentando un prezzo per i giorni feriali e un prezzo per i giorni di festività e ponti, suscettibili di variazioni periodiche a seconda della stagionalità dell’Acquario.

L’acquisto dei biglietti online anticipato sarà sempre più conveniente rispetto all’acquisto in biglietteria. I biglietti acquistati sia online sia in biglietteria con il pricing dinamico non sono modificabili né rimborsabili.

Viacom celebra Earth Day 2019: programmazione speciale e...

VIACOM, EARTH DAY 2019 CON UNA PROGRAMMAZIONE SPECIALE E INIZIATIVE INTERNE

Viacom International Media Networks Italia (l’azienda guidata dall’A.D. Andrea Castellari), partecipa alla 49° edizione dell’Earth Day - la Giornata Mondiale della Terra celebrata dalle Nazioni Unite che rappresenta il momento di sensibilizzazione alla tutela del Pianeta più impattante al mondo mobilitando ogni anno oltre un miliardo di persone nei 193 Paesi dell’ONU.

In occasione dell’Earth Day 2019, Viacom Italia, tramite i suoi brand, propone una serie di appuntamenti che hanno come protagonista assoluta la natura: una programmazione speciale interamente dedicata al nostro pianeta.

Lunedì alle 11.30, Paramount Network (canale 27 del DTT e 27 di tivusat) andrà in onda il lungometraggio documentario Earth – La nostra terra, prodotto da Disneynature e realizzato con le più spettacolari scene della serie tv Pianeta Terra. Un viaggio dal Polo Nord al Polo Sud compiuto attraverso gli occhi e le esperienze di tre “protagonisti”: una famiglia di orsi polari, un branco di elefanti e una balena megattera con il suo cucciolo appena nato.

Su VH1, il canale musicale (67 del DTT e 25 di tivusat) dedicato ai successi del presente e del passato, spazio ai più bei brani che hanno al loro centro l’ambiente e la sua salvaguardia, non solo dal punto di vista musicale ma anche da quello “visivo”. È la speciale rotazione Best Of Earth Day in onda alle ore 20. Tra i videoclip presenti, anche Different World di Alan Walker feat. Sofia Carson, K-391 & CORSAK, una vera e propria denuncia con immagini del degrado del nostro pianeta e messaggi che invitano all’azione per “salvare il salvabile”, cadenzati dal ritmo dance di Alan Walker.

MTV, sui propri canali digitali, tra cui il sito mtv.it, Facebook (www.facebook.com/mtvitalia), Twitter (twitter.com/mtvitalia) e Instagram (instagram.com/mtvitalia), condividerà articoli e gallery fotografiche dedicati alla natura e a questioni ambientali. Sul profilo Instagram in particolare, tramite IG stories, MTV proporrà contenuti speciali sulla Giornata Mondiale della Terra.

Anche Nickelodeon (Sky 605) è in prima linea per la Giornata Mondiale dell’Ambiente. Su Nickelodeon, dalle 20.20 al via una maratona speciale con alcuni dei più bei episodi de I Thunderman e A casa dei Loud incentrati sull’ambiente e la salvaguardia della terra. Per I Thunderman andrà in onda l’episodio Salviamo la pianta in cui Allison e il gruppo dei “Green Teens” deve proteggere una pianta rara dalle smanie distruttive del preside Bradford. La casa ecosostenibile e Squame di giustizia sono i due appuntamenti di A casa dei Loud.

Nick Jr (Sky 603), il canale pre scolare di Viacom, invece, proporrà dalle 18.40 una maratona Paw Patrol con protagonista Rocky, il cucciolo più ecologista del gruppo che, con i suoi veicoli super tecnologici, è sempre molto attento a raccogliere i rifiuti e a riciclare. Il suo collarino infatti porta proprio il simbolo del riciclo! Andranno in onda gli episodi: Rocky salva sé stesso, I cuccioli salvano la baia, I cuccioli salvano l’ape regina, Sea Patrol: I cuccioli salvano una balena agitata e I cuccioli salvano un piccolo delfino.

Viacom, inoltre, da sempre attenta alle tematiche ambientali, si impegna a promuovere comportamenti responsabili ed ecosostenibili con iniziative e momenti pensati appositamente per i suoi dipendenti. L’azienda, ad esempio, utilizza solo energia verde proveniente da fonti 100% rinnovabili di origine certificata. In ottica di una progressiva riduzione dell’utilizzo della plastica nei suoi uffici di Milano, poi, dopo aver installato gli erogatori di acqua, introdotto macchine di depurazione dell’acqua allacciate alla rete idrica municipale, abolito i bicchieri di plastica e scelto materiali ecosostenibili per i distributori di bevande, in occasione dell’Earth Day 2019 fornirà a tutti i suoi dipendenti una Urban Bottle realizzate in collaborazione con WAMI (brand che contribuisce alla realizzazione di progetti idrici che portano acqua potabile nei paesi più poveri del mondo, dando un contributo significativo, spesso vitale, alle comunità che lo ricevono). Ogni volta che verrà riempita una bottiglia di acqua verranno risparmiati 0,08 kg di emissione di CO2!

Join the Fellowship in 'Rugrats: The Last Token' from BOOM! Studios

Official BOOM! Studios Press Release via boom-studios.com:

JOIN THE FELLOWSHIP IN RUGRATS: THE LAST TOKEN FROM BOOM! STUDIOS

April 18, 2019

Discover One Token To Rule All the Babies in Their Very First Graphic Novel Adventure


One token to rule all babies!

BOOM! Studios today announced the first-ever Rugrats original graphic novel RUGRATS: THE LAST TOKEN, about the babies’ journey to save the arcade from certain doom with the treasured last token, from writer Pranas T. Naujokaitis (Adventure Time) and artist Maurizia Rubino (Steven Universe) in stores November 2019. Join the Rugrats as they set off on a magical quest to battle monsters, hordes, and the pernicious influence of greed in the most epic adventure of all time!

Stu and Drew have taken the babies to the local arcade for a relaxing day of pizza and games but one does not simply walk into the Wizard Rat Pizza Parlor Fun Time. When the arcade’s token stock goes down to one, a frenzy breaks loose and darkness descends upon the arcade floor. Every child seeks the precious golden coin for their own game with no thought to the needs of all the children of Fun Time. It is up to Tommy, son of Stu, and his noble fellowship of Rugrats to guard the one token across the treacherous game room floor to the fabled volcano arcade machine, told to yield a stream of tokens if you win, in order to save the day.

Naujokaitis is an Ignatz Award-nominated writer who has worked for Boom! Studios on Adventure Time: Ice King and Uncle Grandpa in Uncle Grandpaland.

“One thing I always loved about Rugrats is how spot on they get it when showing how kids pretend when playing. I wanted to do a story that honored those playtimes but through the eyes of Tommy and the gang,” said Naujokaitis. “I am honored to get to put my own small personal stamp and work with characters that I loved when I was young enough (and small enough) to still be allowed inside those plastic tubes of my youth.”

Rubino is an illustrator of children’s books and comic books based in Milan. She was an artist for Steven Universe: Fusion Frenzy #1 from BOOM! Studios.

“I’m very excited to work on RUGRATS: THE LAST TOKEN. The story is super fun and full of references to classic fantasy stories, so it’s been a really interesting book to illustrate,” said Rubino. “I’m very happy to be the artist who has accompanied the babies on this amazing adventure!”

RUGRATS: THE LAST TOKEN, featuring a cover by Chrystin Garland (Steven Universe), is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, home to comics for middle grade and younger readers, including licensed series such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Regular Show, Ben 10, and Over The Garden Wall, along with original series like Just Beyond: The Scare School by R.L. Stine and Kelly & Nichole Matthews, Hex Vet by Sam Davies, RuinWorld by Derek Laufman, and Pandora’s Legacy by Kara Leopard, Kelly & Nichole Matthews.

“This uproarious Rugrats adventure is a tip of the hat to one of my favorite genres, fantasy,” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Pranas and Maurizia have crafted a tale that weaves humor and action as the babies dream up some big fantasy and challenge themselves in a quest to rid the arcade of unhealthy competition. This is an epic Rugrats story unlike any we’ve done before!”

Print copies of RUGRATS: THE LAST TOKEN will be available in November 2019 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the one nearest you), or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

Inside Ryan ToysReview’s linear TV strategy

Taking the child star from YouTube to Nickelodeon was no easy feat, but Pocket.watch CCO Albie Hecht breaks down how the prodco pulled it off.

By Ryan Tuchow

Nickelodeon and Pocket.watch are bringing seven-year-old YouTube superstar Ryan, from Ryan ToysReview (18 million subscribers), to a slightly bigger screen with their new linear live-action series Ryan’s Mystery Playdate.

Premiering tomorrow, the 20 x half-hour series stars the social media star, his family and a cast of animated characters who work together on creative challenges to discover the identity of his special playdate guest star. The challenges range from stacking pancakes to catching slimy frogs and deflating a room full of whoopee cushions, while guest stars could be anyone from fellow social media celebs to professional athletes.

Since his YouTube channel launched in 2015, it has become one of the platform’s most popular channels, and the child star has become a giant in the kids entertainment industry. The linear series is Pocket.watch’s latest project in a partnership with Ryan’s family, which began in 2017 when they first teamed up to create a multiplatform franchise development plan. Today, the brand has expanded into publishing, licensing, original programming and merchandising. Pocket.watch turned the YouTube channel into a massive franchise and created a new book imprint called Watch This Book! with Simon & Schuster; launched a toy and apparel line named Ryan’s World; signed deals with a myriad of licensing partners; and kicked off a 75-location experiential tour at Walmart locations across the US.

The only thing the young YouTuber hasn’t tackled is linear—until now. But the transition from YouTube to TV was not a difficult one, says Pocket.watch CCO Albie Hecht, who recently shared some insights with Kidscreen about the challenges behind production, balancing the feel of his YouTube channel with a network TV production, and why Nickelodeon was the right partner for this series.

“His whole family has a great dynamic. The father is such a comedic character, and his mother holds it all together, explaining challenges and what’s going on. It’s just like how they are on the YouTube channel,” says Hecht. “And then there’s Ryan. He has the kind of face we can cut to when we’re filming because when he laughs, everyone laughs.”

At the core, Hecht says the idea for Mystery Playdate comes down to the YouTuber’s infectious energy—he just comes across as everyone’s best friend.

The idea for the show arose after the digital media company ran a contest where kids had a chance to win a playdate with the mini vlogger. When Pocket.watch brought the idea to Nickelodeon, the kidcaster didn’t need much convincing. Nickelodeon (known for having worked with digital stars in the past) was quick to give him his own show, Hecht says, after seeing the YouTube star’s massive audience and appeal.

“Nickelodeon was a natural partner for this. Not only had it pioneered live-action Nick Jr. shows like Blues Clues, it also had begun to understand the power of social media stars with JoJo Siwa,” says Hecht.

After the premiere, Nick will bring back the original promotion and give kids an opportunity to have a playdate with Ryan. A new episode of the show will also bow on Saturday, April 20 before moving to its regular time slot on Fridays. Short-form content including behind-the-scenes videos and additional footage, as well as full-length episodes, will be added to NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. app after it debuts.

Convincing Nick to air the show may have been easy, but producing it wasn’t. One of the main challenges was in trying to stay true to the original YouTube channel‘s brand, says Hecht, while also needing to show audiences that it offers something they can’t get by just going online.

The show’s production kept a crew of 100 people busy for six months. Ryan’s videos are known for a roving camera, close-ups as he’s unboxing gifts, animated characters, colorful costumes and some special effects. Now, all of the intimate action that’s captured by one camera in a family’s living room has to be balanced against huge sets and technology. By keeping the family dynamic at the center of the action, though, Hecht says the team was able to bridge those personal moments with the more elaborate production.

Pocket.watch maintained the authentic and unscripted nature of the YouTube channel by not having any writers, instead hiring five challenge producers led by EP Jeff Sutphen (Figure It Out). The producers decided what each challenge would be and made sure it was safe and entertaining for those on set. Dialogue is improvised, and the only portions that are scripted are scene transitions and challenge explanations. To further protect the brand, the prodco maintains editorial control and makes final decisions on the editing process.

Hecht did not provide any details on the budget, but says one of the biggest challenges of production was building the sets because it had to maintain the look of Ryan’s videos while creating something that was bigger, and more of a spectacle, to draw audiences to TV.

“We’ve taken these great and familiar YouTube challenges and blown them up so it’s more mess, more obstacles and more fun props and costuming to take it to a higher level that the audience will recognize and love,” says Hecht. “But they will also say, ‘Wow! I’ve never seen that before.’”

Why the 'Rugrats' Passover Episode Still Resonates with Fans More Than 20 Years Later

What makes the Rugrats Passover episode so special, more than 20 years later? InsideEdition.com spoke to Paul Germain, one of the creators of Nickelodeon's beloved animated series, Rugrats, about the episode, one of the rare TV or movie events dedicated to the Jewish holiday. To this day, he's surprised it still resonates with so many.


“It’s kind of embedded in pop culture,” Germain said. “We were really proud of it. We never thought of it as a bit deal.”

"A Rugrats Passover" first aired on Nickelodeon on April 13, 1996. It was 22 minutes long, twice the length of the average 11-minute episode. (Usually multiple installments would air in the show's 22-minute time slot.)

The episode has achieved a cult-like status among fans of the classic Nickelodeon show. Some watch it every year the way they do with "A Rugrats Chanukah".

Nickelodeon approached Germain and his colleagues about doing a Hanukkah episode following the success of their Christmas episode since Tommy Pickles is half-Jewish.

“We said sure,” said Germain, but then they suggested Passover instead since it was a more “important” Jewish holiday.

Tommy Pickles as Moses in the Passover episode

Passover is an eight-day holiday celebrated in the spring honoring the Jewish liberation out of Egypt. It’s celebrated with a seder, or ceremonial feast, on the first two nights, which includes bitter herbs, matzo and wine, all symbolic of different elements of the holiday.

It was quickly decided among the writers that the Rugrats episode would feature Angelica as the pharaoh and Tommy as Moses. While all the adults are downstairs having a seder, Grandpa Boris and the kids get accidentally locked in the attic. That’s where he tells them all about the holiday’s history.

The writers molded the story of the plagues and slaying of the first born to make it more child-friendly, Germain noted.

A Hanukkah episode did eventually air on Dec. 4, 1996, which was recently adapted into a comic, but Germain still hears from fans thanking him for the series' attention to Passover.

"What I am really proud of, is it kind of introduced Passover to kids and their parents who really didn’t know about it," Germain said. "I think it really brought people together.

“... I still get letters, ‘This is how I taught my kids about Passover,’ or people telling me, ‘This is how I learned about Passover,'" Germain, who added that he's working on a reboot of the show, continued. "It’s kind of exciting."
