image "borrowed" from this photo log created by someone named Jeff.
It's only been since Friday that I posted most recently and yet I feel as though I have neglected this blog. Strange.
I've been spending way too much time hanging out on other people's blogs, making a complete and utter nuisance of myself... opinionatedness all over the place. Soon there will be installment two of Beautiful Silhouettes and I have several other posts in the works.
In the meantime for you fellow history lovers check out:
Beautiful Silhouettes, part 1 regarding the early work of Lotte Reiniger.
Or check out the small but fascinating online archive of Ken Harris' work.
Or take a trip in the way-back-machine to watch a cool sample of Buster Keaton's work and read some thoughts on learning from this master of movement and performance.
For those of you curious about my work:
We have glacial movement in my acting performance work.
Some performance improvement through a good critique that forces the issue of timing and spacing.
Some animation tests geared towards what I teach.
And completion of my second animation test for the same.
Or just some life drawing examples from this spring.
And definitely check out this awesome "video" tutorial on the meaning of COPYRIGHT and fair use put together by Eric Faden.
All of my commenting on other peoples blogs seems to be driving more people to this location. I'm getting hits from places like Brazil, England, Germany, France, India, Romania, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, and Japan just to name a few. Thank you to everyone who bothers to stop by and check out this spot. Very flattering to think in what distant locations my musing are traveling. Stay tuned. I have plenty more to come including more samples of my own work current and past.
