Trusted Computing

Here at Cartoon Brew, our general focus on entertainment-related animation makes it easy to forget that animation is a sophisticated visual medium that can also be used to educate and inform audiences. I was reminded of this when I ran across a new animated short by Lutz Vogel and Benjamin Stephan called TRUSTED COMPUTING, a visually striking “message film” about the potential hazards of the computer industry’s move towards a trusted computing platform. The film offers an introduction to this technology in layman’s terms, and gets across its point in a surprisingly effective manner, especially for a non-technical person like myself. Well worth checking out.
