Description of Pictures: Essa Neima – Moving Pictures: So, You Want to Animate?
Animator/educator Essa Neima shares his experiences in animation, from working with companies to understanding what it takes to make a good cartoon. He’ll share examples of his own work, as well as provide some simple exercises that you can do at home to make your own animation using a spinning disc and flip books.

Wikipedia Description: Artisphere
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Artisphere is a cultural center located in the Rosslyn section of Arlington, Virginia.
The Cultural Affairs Division of Arlington County, Virginia organized the new institution, which opened in October 2010. Artisphere occupies the space that previously housed the Newseum until its relocation to Washington, DC on March 3, 2002, as well as a nearby theatre which was orginially build to show motion pictures.
The 62,000 sq ft (5,800 m2) facility was converted at a cost of $6.7 million. The specific facilities include:
* 220-seat Dome Theatre, for concerts and films
* 4,000 sq ft (370 m2) Terrace Gallery, for art exhibits
* WiFi Town Square, with a two-story high video wall
* 3,000 sq ft (280 m2) Ballroom
* 125-seat black box theatre
* 387-seat Spectrum Theatre
* retail space for selling crafts
Artisphere will have an annual operating budget of $3.1 million, of which $300,000 will be funded by the Rosslyn Business Improvement District. Programming will include serving as the home of the Washington Shakespeare Company, the Bowen McCauley Dance Company and the National Chamber Ensemble. The Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse and the Alexandria Symphony have also pledged to produce events there, and the ballroom is expected to be used for salsa, swing and social dancing.
The center's name was selected from among those proposed by a opinion poll of Arlington residents. The name is inspired by the geodesic dome that houses one of the theaters.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2014 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used my Fuji XS-1 camera but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
three Civil War Trust conferences (Winchester, VA, Nashville, TN, and Atlanta, GA),
Michigan to visit mom in the hospice before she died and then a return trip after she died, and
my 9th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Sacramento, Oakland, and Los Angeles).
Ego strokes: Paul Dickson used one of my photos as the author photo in his book "Aphorisms: Words Wrought by Writers".
Number of photos taken this year: just over 470,000.
