    Фильм посвящен началу творческого пути Ивана Айвазовского - выдающегося российского мариниста XIX в. Он родился в семье разорившегося торговца армянского происхождения в Феодосии (вообще-то, его отец турок, но воспитанный в христианской армянской семье, детство его прошло, видимо, во Львове, который находился тогда в Австрийской империи, первоначальная фамилия его - Айвазян, но он предпочитал ее польский вариант - Гайвазовский). Уже в подростковом возрасте будущий художник проявил художественные способности, но, видимо, выбирал между музыкой и изобразительным искусством. По протекции влиятельных знакомых ему удалось поступить в Академию художеств на полный пансион (т. е. бесплатное обучение). Уже в студенческие годы он получил признание критиков и стал одним из любимых художников императора Николая I. В фильме представлены работы художника, созданные в 30-е годы. На удивление, их сохранилось очень мало, всего два десятка, все они представлены в фильме. Картины Айвазовского анимированы с помощью программы ArtWaver. Эта программа позволила оживить сцены из российской действительности того времени. Картины Айвазовского противопоставляют порывистое движение ветра, бурлящее море спокойствию человека, который на ранних картинах предстает бесстрастным зрителем буйства природы. Они изображают эпизоды повседневной жизни Феодосии, Ялты, Санкт-Петербурга. В фильме используется музыка из произведений Василия Калинникова. The film is dedicated to early career of Ivan Aivazovsky - famous Russian marine painter of XIX century. He was born to a bankrupt merchant of Armenian origin in Feodosia (in general that his father is Turkish, but brought up in a Christian Armenian families, apparently spent his childhood in Lvov, which was then in the Austrian Empire, the original name it - Aivazian, but he preferred to its Polish version - Gayvazovsky). Even in adolescence showed artistic ability, but apparently chose between music and visual arts. Under the patronage of influential friends he managed to enter the Academy of Fine Arts on full board (ie, free education). Already in his student years, he received critical acclaim and became one of the favorite artists of the Emperor Nicholas I. The film works by the artist created in the 30s. To the surprise of very few survived, only two dozen, all of them are represented in the film. Aivazovsky paintings are animated using ArtWaver. This program has to revive the scene of the Russian reality of that time. Aivazovsky paintings contrasted abrupt movement of wind, swirling sea of ​​serenity of a man who appears in the early scenes impassive spectator violence of nature. They depict scenes of everyday life in Feodosia, Yalta, St. Petersburg. The film uses music from the works of Basil Kalinnikova.

        concept, motion design: Emilia Lany This is the video I did for a collab of two great musicians: AM & Shawn Lee. The concept of the video is my own interpretation of the song. I had full control of every aspect of the process, which was fun, but also quite a demanding taks (since most of things I do are at least partly limited in form and content). I got inspired by a set of scans of patent diagrams from 1868 uploaded on-line by an anonymous person on Squidoo (http://www.squidoo.com/free-steampunk-collage-sheets) so I owe the credits to this person.

                  The guitar had a surge of popularity on the era of the 'Romantic' poets, it became for many the 'Romantic' instrument, but what was it like to play in that era?: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/being-a-guitarist-in-the-time-of-byron-and-shelley With a player’s insight (a guitar of 1825 is my main instrument) this lecture explores the experience of the Regency guitarist: the day-to day business of buying and learning the instrument for the purposes of cutting a figure as a salon amateur or indeed as a professional (to the extent that such a career was feasible – an issue to be explored). It will consider the availability of sheet-music with arrangements of opera favourites, the rise of the governess guitar teacher, the struggle of enthusiasts to cope with contemporary prejudices against the guitar, and the miseries of slipping pegs, breaking strings and damp. The role of the newspapers in advertising instruments, concerts and new music will be an underlying theme of this and several other lectures in the series. The lecture by Professor Page will be illustrated by performances by Ulrich Wedemeier of the following pieces: Fernando Sor: Que ne suis-je la fougère!, Opus 26 (extract) Fernando Sor: Minuet from Opus 15. John Abraham Nuske: Fantasia (extract) Fernando Sor: The Fantasie élégiaque, Opus 59 (extract) The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College Website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/being-a-guitarist-in-the-time-of-byron-and-shelley Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
