Baigdami mokyklą, abiturientai susiduria su galybe informacijos, kurioje kviečiama stoti į universitetus, kolegijas ar profesines mokyklas, organizuojamos studijų mugės, per atvirų durų dienas siūloma apsilankyti mokymosi įstaigose. Tačiau vis dar trūksta paprastos pažinties su profesija, gyvo pasakojimo, ką mokinys galės veikti, baigęs vieną ar kitą universitetą.

Pristatome laidų ciklą „Pažink profesijas“, skirtą jauniems žmonės, kurie domisi ir ieško to, kas jiems būtų įdomu. Šis ciklas pristatys pačias įvairiausias profesijas, apie kurias pasakos savo darbą mėgstantys žmonės.

Kaip kuriama animacija, ar ji yra skirta tik vaikams, ir ką reikėtų studijuoti, norint išmokti kurti animacinius filmus, pirmojoje laidoje papasakoja jaunas lietuvių animatorius Meinardas Valkevičius. Vaikystėje animatorius norėjo lankyti automobilių modeliavimo būrelį, bet ten nebebuvo vietos, todėl užsirašė į animaciją. Šiuo metu Meinardas ne tik kuria, bet moko kurti ir kitus – jis jau ne vienus metus veda viešus animatorių kursus „Pasakos“ kino teatre. Tarptautinimuose festivaliuose apdovanotas ir įvertintas animacijos kūrėjas sako, jog šedevro dar nėra sukūręs, bet tikisi anksčiau ar vėliau sukurti tai, kas galėtų pritrenkti pasaulį.

Star Wars Rebels: Full Trailer (Official)

Starring a small band of heroes -- Sabine, Kanan, Hera, Ezra, Zeb, and Chopper -- Star Wars Rebels is set in a time where the Empire rules through fear and shrouds the galaxy in darkness. This trailer offers many new glimpses at sequences from the show, including the starship Ghost chased by TIE Fighters; young Ezra watching as a Star Destroyer looms overhead; Stormtroopers marching; a zero-g fight between our heroes and Imperials; and Kanan, a secret Jedi, assembling his lightsaber and preparing for battle. It ends, however, with an Imperial officer reporting to the Inquisitor -- the Empire's Jedi hunter, seen and heard here for the first time.

Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series, executive produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel and will be followed by a series on Disney XD.
