Top Actor Reddit IAmA's http://www.topiama.com/cat/actor The latest Actor IAmA's collected from Reddit Actor / EntertainerIamA Voice Over Artist and I'll Read Any Script You Like AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6312/iama-voice-over-artist-and-ill-read-any-script The Associated Press is launching Future of Work, a series of stories exploring how technology and global pressures are transforming workplaces across the U.S. and around the world. The first installments went out this week and focus on workers’ relationships with robots, and how automation is changing the availability and nature of employment in manufacturing.

There’s a paradox in how we think of modern American manufacturing jobs.

While it’s true that many of these jobs have gone overseas, U.S. manufacturers have actually added nearly a million jobs in the past seven years, and federal statistics show nearly 390,000 such jobs are unfilled.

But this isn’t the kind of assembly-line work your parents and grandparents did. More and more factory jobs now demand education, technical know-how or specialized skills to run robots. Many of the workers laid off from low-tech factories lack such qualifications, and training opportunities are limited, particularly for older workers. Japan is way ahead of the U.S. in introducing robots to the workplace, but it hasn’t resulted in some of the job reductions observed in other nations. It has also not created the surge in higher-skilled employment. So, it turns out, there are plenty of manufacturing jobs. There just aren’t enough of the right kind of workers to fill them.

Here’s your chance to talk about this with some of the Associated Press journalists who reported these stories in text, photos, video and graphics across three continents. We are writer Dan Sewell and photographer John Minchillo in Cincinnati: business writer Yuri Kageyama in Tokyo: economics editor Fred Monyak in Washington: and enterprise editor Jeff McMillan in Philadelphia.

Ask me anything. http://www.topiama.com/r/6294/i-just-interviewed-16-of-the-worlds-greatest After my brothers girlfriends bus got hung up while trying to find Schenectady and presumably needed to be towed to get free, I realized just about everyone who's ridden Greyhound has had a shit experience on Greyhound.

AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6248/im-aja-evans-and-i-push-a-sled-on-ice-very-fast I’m a bobsledder for Team USA (yes, like “Cool Runnings”) and my name is pronounced “Asia” like the continent (and 9 times out of 10 if you’re a Steely Dan fan then you already knew that). I’m from the Southside of Chicago and in my spare time I enjoy documentaries on Bigfoot, aliens, and #SharkWeek in July. I come from a super athletic family; from my brother who played 8 years in the NFL to my uncle Gary Matthews who goes by “Sarge” in the MLB. I‘m currently in Calgary, Canada gearing up for Team Selections for the upcoming Olympic Year. I won a shiny Bronze Medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics, and I’m trying to upgrade that to GOLD in 2018 in Pyeongchang. AMA!

Actor / Entertainer3) I am a standup comedian named Ari Shaffir. I have a double special out on Netflix called "Double Negative." Get it? Because it's 2 specials and also because it makes a positive? You get it. Ask me anything. http://www.topiama.com/r/6228/3-i-am-a-standup-comedian-named-ari-shaffir-i I'll be 100% honest and answer as many questions as you guys can throw out. I'll give you, let's say, 2 to 3 hours. But ask me questions for me, not for other people. I won't tell you which of my friends have cheated on their wives or girlfriends, but just about anything else. Why would you even ask that? Ask shit about me, not my dirtbag friends. And I mean, ask whatever you want. Ask me about standup in general. Ask me for romantic advice. Ask me about sports. Ask me about my own standup. Ask me about your chlamydia. I don't know. There's a shitload you could ask. You think of the questions, idiots. And I'll answer all of them. 2 to 3 hours. The more fun I'm having the longer I'll go.

My new special, "Double Negative" is now on Netflix

I have a podcast called Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank

Here's a story of me having a weed scavenger hunt at the Mall of America.

I have another podcast called Punch Drunk Sports

Actor / EntertainerI'm Mechanical Engineer and YouTuber Mark Rober. Recently featured on Reddit for creating the 'Courtesy Honk' Car Horn and Automatic Bullseye Dartboard. Been making monthly videos for 5 years and I just hit 2M subs! AMA!! http://www.topiama.com/r/6215/im-mechanical-engineer-and-youtuber-mark-rober My name is Dane Jasper (/u/danejasper), and I co-founded Sonic in 1994, at a time when the “World Wide Web” was brand new, Linux had just been invented and avoiding dialup busy signals was the main customer issue. Today, Sonic is the largest independent ISP in Northern California. As a 20-year industry veteran, I've seen a lot of change, but I remain committed to the concept of alternative competitive broadband access services, which is why I’m fighting for net neutrality today.

Sonic firmly believes that internet providers should NOT be able to charge content creators -- like Netflix or CNET -- more money to stream their service, or have the ability to block others entirely. The internet should remain open and equal for all.

I’ll be sticking around to answer your questions on net neutrality and what’s at stake for you and everyone else who uses and loves the internet, amid the FCC’s plans to roll back current net neutrality regulations. Ask away!

Actor / EntertainerI am Jared Leto and on 4th of July I am filming a massive portrait of America. Ask me anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/6192/i-am-jared-leto-and-on-4th-of-july-i-am-filming-a This Tuesday, the 4th of July, we are filming a massive portrait of America, capturing a single day in the life of this beautiful country in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. It’s an incredible opportunity to document the USA during a very important time in our country. And we need your help.

We are asking you to film what’s important, impactful, challenging or inspiring to you. It can be a single shot, a person, an entire event, or a compelling story - we want to see your America in all its imperfect glory.

When shooting, please try to be as brave, bold and creative as possible. The most compelling footage will be what makes it into the final portrait. In addition, we would like you or your subject to look into the camera and answer the following questions.

  • What is your name and where are you from?
  • What does America mean to you?
  • What does the American dream mean to you?
  • What is the state of the country today?
  • What are you afraid of?
  • What are your hopes and dreams?

If there is anything else that you have the desire to say or share, please feel free.

Our goal is to create this portrait based on footage captured on a single day - July 4th, 2017 - but if there are events or images that transpire on another day that we feel we need to tell our story, we will include those.

New Film - The Orbit Of Minor Satellites

First Feature Film - Consuming Spirits

About the Film

The Orbit of Minor Satellites is a story of two very distinct and separate worlds that are connected by the most unlikely threads. The character Derwood Richards is a controversial psychiatrist who treats Rosemary Hamm at his private sanitarium.

Rosemary has created an imaginery world of a space station located on one of the Moons of Saturn, in a forgotten corner of the solar system. She conjures a romance between a doomed astronaut and a cosmonaut that mirrors her difficult earthbound existence.

Our talking bison is the moon's only native inhabitant, a sulferdioxide breathing giant who yearns for lost loves.

The Orbit of Minor Satellites is a hand drawn 2-D feature animation, independently produced by Chris Sullivan and his battalion of animators.

The film is hand drawn, digitally composited over painted backgrounds, models, and live action actors. As with all of my films, it is strange in form and content, my characters are misguided, but follow their strange paths to a place of peace, and empathy.

CHRIS SULLIVAN is the creator, writer, director, lead animator, and sound design. His previous animated films include Master of Ceremonies, Landscape with The Fall of Icarus, and Consuming Spirits.

"The Orbit of Minor Satellites is my new digital 2-D animated feature film, which takes you to the richly imagined world inside the mind of a troubled sanitarium inmate.

It’s a dark story about love in a time of darkness, shot starkly in black and white to better convey the dislocation of my main characters, the psychiatric patient and the doctor who treats her, and the imagined inhabitants of a forgotten Cold War space station on a moon of Saturn.

I’m thrilled to share with you that Sara Karloff, the daughter of my personal film hero Boris Karloff, has given me permission to use clips from her father’s radio performances for the voice of another major character in the film, a 100-foot-tall talking bison named Roger Ashley Norton.

"The Orbit of Minor Satellites" is a film that has been brewing for many years, and first came together thanks to a Creative Capital Grant. I’ve focused over the past two years on writing, preproduction, experimentation, and animating labor, bringing together an incredible creative team who will work with me to complete the film over the next two years.

If I'm able to raise the necessary funds, I'll complete "The Orbit of Minor Satellites” by late summer of 2019, entering it first in major live action festivals and then in animation festivals. It will be theatrically released in early 2020.

This is my second major animated feature film. Consuming Spirits, which was funded with a Rockefeller Foundation Film Fellowship and a fellowship from The John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, was completed and released in 2012."

A.O. Scott, in a 2012 review in The New York Times, called it “remarkable” and said it "is a work of obsessive artisanal discipline and unfettered artistic vision. You have never seen anything like it… Mr. Sullivan’s pictorial wit and storytelling brio are delightful in ways that cut against the harshness of the story without blunting its deep ache."

Tasha Robinson, The Onion AV club: "Watching Consuming Spirits is like surrendering to hypnosis, or to a particularly haunting dream"..."Consuming Spirits has hidden depths"
