:hello blog lovers,

.this morning I shared on my fb picture that speaks a lot about d humanity and d future of our living [if we read books hopefully in positive way]. I really more respect people that not only have books in their houses but also read them, besides d message/ quote from John Waters. But I’ll not speak about d picture because hits d aim from position that I practice indirectly that what I want to share here is + one animation, short one speaking again about d books, in one magical, surreal way, that brings awesome perception of d books as they really are. I found this via Jordan Dukov, friend of mine that not rare knows to surprise me with d content that he share on his profile.

I like d first part of d message on d photo d most so I will mention it here: we need to make bo.Oks cO.ol again!. ..and that’s right. Not so often we read good content on internet as always in d books. I spent daily at least 2 hours in reading, and d animation that I saw just shifted me in d world of books that opens my fantasy and fulfill my heart.

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

.
[from vimeo] Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

“The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” is one of five animated short films that will be considered for outstanding film achievements of 2011 in the 84th Academy Awards ®.

“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.” – Ingmar Bergman

Cinema! Can you imagine your life without movies? In March, 1895 the brothers Lumiere presented Cinematograph – a new device for showing films and got a patent for it. But the first open display happened on December 28 of the same year and this date is considered as the birthday of the cinema. This remarkable event was held in the Parisian cafe in Parkway Kaputsinov, where Lumieres presented the first short-footage movie “Arrival of a train on station La Sota” to the general public (not for free, it was the first film shown to people for money). This performance caused panic – spectators were frightened, that a train will crush them. The entrance fee to the historic film screening was 1 franc. 35 tickets were reportedly purchased. Each film was 17 meters long, which, when hand cranked through a projector, ran approximately 50 seconds. From that moment, regular film screenings began, accompanied by a piano or a saxophone. The motion pictures were sometimes also accompanied by text below the images. Modern technologies increased the quality of the films and different effects much.

“This is the best thing we can do. And we are proud of it”, said the Lumiиre brothers of their invention.

.sometimes we just need to celebrate d things from d past how we’ll open space for new celebrations.. for new project, movies, festivals. In Macedonia d cinema history start with Manaki Brothers, primary artist that start d experience with photography in that time, but beside the work in their photo-studio and shooting with their photo and film Camera 300, the Manaki brothers were also showing films. The first film in their new Cinema “Manaki” under open sky in “Wide Street” was held in 1921. The “Cinema Garden” was a temporary solution that did not satisfy the brothers. They later built a Cinema House and the first projection there, was on the first of December 1923. The Cinema worked with variable success. It changed owners, but in 1939 burnt to ashes…
.
On December 28, 1885, the Lumière brothers, Auguste and Louis, presented their ten short documentaries/actualities, less than a minute long each, for the public consideration for the first time. Since then much has changed. Cinema stopped being silent. Filmmakers started creating colored pictures. Actors became recognizable and admired. Nickelodeons transformed into picture palaces.
In 1985, the audience paid for such kind of entertainment for the very first time. In 1927, the world saw (and listened to) the first talkie ‘The Jazz Singer’ by Michael Curtiz. The same year the first Academy Awards honored ‘Wings’ with the title of the Best Picture. In 1928, Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse. Concerning the Oscars, 1935 was marked by Frank Capra’s ‘It Happened One Night’ being first to win the grand slam. In 1975, Steven Spielberg directed the so-called first blockbuster ‘Jaws’. In 1995, Pixar and Walt Disney Pictures made the first completely computer-generated full-length feature film ‘Toy Story’. In 2009, Jim Cameron gave us a ticket to wonderful Pandora in incredible quality 3D, and Kathryn Bigelow proved that women can also be great directors.
So many dates and turning points are omitted here, but what is more important is what cinema has done for us: it influenced and inspired us, it brought us together, it made us think. Although many people believe it’s just an industry to mop up money, the silver screen remains one of the most beautiful, versatile and unbelievable arts.

.I know that you share my passion for it, that’s why ~
:Happy International Day of Cinema!

:International Volunteer Day & voila participation

1 Comment

Being volunteer is not a little thing. I remember my childhood and first steps into voluterism .. it was like a bliss that finding. I could help, participate, been active in so many fields since then.

Being volunteer is a task that everyone need to try!

There are thousands and thousands of problems that occupy are world today, d strategy for making our place better for our future generations is to get involved. The money are not the problem, we always don’t have them, satiric sarcasm that comes from my country. But if u try to forget the money that u’ll see incredible things in d circles where people work hard and promote d volunteers benefits.

I have experience in volunteering over 10 years already, but in my skin I feel like I just start d long distance work. So many things can be changed in my surrounding and I just know that this is d only way. Working with different target groups, trying to make small steps for brighter tomorrow is good decision, when u’re volunteer u can practice d things that u know but learn so much more.

International Volunteer Day Message from Nigel Hiller-Garvey on Vimeo.

The program that I start using after my high school is well known in d youth area, it’s called Youth in action and engaged a lot of youngsters from all Europe.Youth in Action is the EU Programme for young people aged 15-28 (in some cases 13-30). It aims to inspire a sense of active citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young Europeans and to involve them in shaping the Union’s future.

Youth in Action is a programme for all! It promotes mobility within and beyond the EU borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue, and encourages the inclusion of all young people, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.

Youth in Action is the successor of the YOUTH Programme (2000-2006). Building on the experience of the previous programmes for youth, Youth in Action is the result of a large consultation with the different stakeholders in the youth field and aims to respond to the evolutions and needs of young people at European level.

With a total budget of 885 million euros for seven years (2007-2013), the Programme supports a large variety of activities for young people and youth workers through five Actions.

There are many sectors where if u have d good will to participate. U can take part in d general activism, but also help and work with sectors like:children, civil society, culture & sports, education, emergency relief etc. May issues are waiting for u to become aware and join d new era of (r)evolution. Advocacy, corporate volunteering, infrastructure, management, policy, research, senior volunteers, vacation volunteering, volunteering for development, young volunteers an so ON!
