Tarkovksy films available for free on-line

I would put Tarkovsky up there with Kubrik fighting for the title of “greatest director of the 20th Century,”

Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period. But his influence extended well beyond the Soviet Union.  The Cahiers du cinéma consistently ranked his films on their top ten annual lists. Ingmar Bergman went so far as to say, “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.” And Akira Kurosawa acknowledged his influence too, adding, “I love all of Tarkovsky’s films. I love his personality and all his works. Every cut from his films is a marvelous image in itself.”

Of course Bergman and Kurusawa, along with several significant others, belong up there too. But Kubrik represents the best American cinema could produce, as does Tarkovksy for the Soviets.  So how about an epic rap battle between the two at least. And watch some of these films!

WNMU New Media Grad Junchen Huang already plugging into Manhattan art scene

Well Junchen Huang has not wasted a breath on arriving in the big city. The day after he arrived he was brunching in little Italy, and plotting guerrilla projections around town. This week brings the fruits of his labors working with the SHADOWPEOPLEPROJECT.ORG, taking footage he shot last March in Hiroshima through a trip organized through WNMU’s Expressive Arts professor of New Media Peter Bill, and projecting it at Chashama.org‘s famous Anita’s Way at the heart of Times Square.  These art projects have been put together by an international arts organization led by Taku Nishimae.  Cannon Hersey, a New York City based artist has been instrumental in connecting the dots on this project.


“Shadow People Project” commemorates the 70th anniversary since the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Shadow People Project will present video works by established artists and youth on August 6th at 6pm at Anita’s Way (137 West 42nd Street) in Times Square, New York.

原爆投下70年を期して、NYのど真ん中で、世界のアーティストと若者が集い、平和への祈りと未来への希望を創るイベント行います。アメリカ、日本、カナダ、メキシコ、イギリス、南アフリカのアーティスト集団で、被爆者へのオマージュを捧げ、その記憶を未来へつないでいくプロジェクト=Shadow People Projectを始めました。

Projections include the US Premier of clips from the feature documentary film “Hiroshima Revealed” broadcast on NHK in Japan on August 4th and 5th which depicts artist Cannon Hersey following the path of his grandfather John Hersey’s depiction of 6 survivors of the atomic bomb of Hiroshima.

Cool way to get your photos out, and do something cool too!

Lets do some shadows people!! I am friends with these folks:

Shadow People Project was inspired by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, where thousands of people were blown away, leaving only their shadows printed by heat on streets, bridges, walls, and granite steps. These shadow people were the first to be rendered faceless and nameless by a nuclear weapon, but they were neither the first nor the last people rendered shadows by a great power.


The Shadow People Project is designed to bring shadow people out of the shadows, to fill the dark night with millions of tiny stars to let the world know we are  source site HERE and  Article 58 Cialis Sales prevacid walmart canada regards for sharing your web-site. prevacid cost canada is prevacid over the counter in canada care about what’s  http://ehorn.net/ef/geco.php?hl=free-roblox-username-and-password-with-robux provided by homeless organization pragulic, these tours aren39;t your typical jaunts around charles bridge and the castle happening to us, to each other, and to our planet.

First Light on the Oxberry Project

Kate Brown, a multimedia artist and key figure in the new Mimbreno visual arts movement, has been working to get physical, as opposed to digital, animation back up and running here in SW New Mexico.  A key part of this is her Oxberry, an animation stand from the Disney era, used for title design and cel based animation from the 1950’s… She drove this beast of an animation stand all the way back from Rhode Island to install it in her studio at the Hot Springs Ranch in Mimbres, NM.

Kate has been working to create the multiplane, which are series of glass plates, that when photographed from above allow for depth and 3d to be introduced into 2d animations.  Working with several local builders,  this process has begun.

The WNMU New Media Studio, as part of its visiting artist series, is inviting new media artists to visit campus and work with students to create new works.  The first artist to visit this year is Stephen Dirkes, a NYC film maker and stop motion animation specialist.  We had the students collect flora from around the ranch, as we timelapsed, now we get to play:
