the video uses stop start animation throughout
held as one of the best music videos of all time
although this was his first publicised animation he had already started on wallace and gromits big day out
Nick created wallace and gromit in collage
Know for their wackey inventions children and adults love wallace and gromit
Many advertisesing companys have used wallace and grommet to market there brands
the show takes many weeks to film
the original clay wallace and gromit were burnt a few years ago
the original creture comforts began in the 80's
the voices are of real people in interviews and the clay animals are based on the interviewees
cretures comforts like wallace and grommit has been used to advertise many products as it is a much loved show
Nick park's first feature film was chiken run wich was relesed in 2000
mel gibson voiced the role of rockey
won 22 awards and nominated for a bafta and an oscor
draws its influence from the great escape
like nick parks other works this film has been seen as a british tresure
the chickens ginger and rocky were named after nick parks real chickens
in 2005 wallace and gromit got thire first feature film curse of the were rabbit
it won an oscar and 30 other awards
the animations were so focused each character had at least 30 diffrent versions of its self to portray diffrent expressions
the film required 2.8 tonnes of plastacence
hailed as one of the best animations of all time
Although celebrity death match is very diffrent from wallace and grommit with heavy play on vilonce many feel that the show would not be soo popular without its wallace and grommit roots
the show took about the same time to film than wallace and gromit
Seth green is a known fan of nick park and even parodyed wallace and grommit in one of his robot chicken sketches
the show differs to nick parks work as they use a mix of action figures and clay and many feel that it is the dawn of a new age in clay mation
nick park has been herd saying that he watches the show from time to time
abbie your work is fine but im sorry i dont have any links sam did most of the original powerpoint see you tomorow hope you have your stuff :)

ps do you think my stuff good??
The American Revolutionary War
this is my part of the presentation so far. It's very breif because i've written notes to go along with it i didn't want to put too much on the slides otherwise i wouldnt have anything to say. i will probably add a quote to the third slide to back up what i'm talking about but this is it so far. If you could let me know what you all think that would be great because i can add more if you think it's appropriate. But yeah just let me know what you think.
once you've done your slides send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
haha i know im lame but it's really old.
but yeah either post them on here or send them to me in a pdf and ill put them all together then i'll post it up on here and we can all have a look see if it flows :)
Just my noats Abbie ill send you links to pictures I want on my slides if thats okay.
………. This then leads us on to the events in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Iran today in the fact that the countries people like the French and Americans before them are overthrowing their undemocratic rulers in hope for a democratic system to replace them.
It can be seen that these courtiers all want a more western theology towards rule unlike the French revolution where socialism was the main figurehead for the revolt countries like Libya seem to adherer to the American revaluations idea of democracy.
Most western powers are now pushing for Libya to become a democracy, Hillary Clinton the Us Secutary of state said that “Libya could become a peaceful democracy or face years of civil war” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-12611925 - 1/3/2011) we can see a change as well in the way people respond to revolutions comparing this to the English reaction in both the French and American revolutions is quite different. In the case of the French revolution England was rather worried that the revolution would catch on and that the common people would overthrow their governments. This is quite similar to the crisis in North Africa because Egypt’s revolution has taken on a domino effect setting other revolutions of in its wake.
Col gadaffi can be compaered to King george the III on his veiw about people protesting his rule. Col Muammar Gaddafi has quoted "Those inciting are very few in numbers and we have to capture them." (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-12570279 - 1/3/2011) This shows many that Col Gaddafi has lost his grip on the full force of overwhelming support for his resignation. This can be liked to the American Revolution in when King George the III said “Once vigorous measures appear to be the only means left of bringing the Americans to a due submission to the mother country, the colonies will submit.” (http://thinkexist.com/quotes/george_iii/ - 1/3/2011) This goes along the same lines of Col Gaddaffi and many also think that King George was Insane.
The last like I wanted to link the role of martyrs in revalution. In June 2009 an iranian woman called Neda Agha-Soltan went to one of the anti dictatorship protests happening in iran at the time. At one point the car she was in got stuck in a large gruope of people. When Neda go out of the car an member of the iranian security force shot into the crow hitting Neda in the cheast. She died within seconds. As this happened a passer by caught her death on camera and it was circled on the web within a matter of hours and quickly Neda became a martyr for the revalution. Unlike Marat the medium of the martydom is very different with marat it was a painting and with Neda it was a camera and the internet. This shows us that thirere will always be martyrs in history but their martydom becomes more know quicker as technology advances.
Its a little long I cant seem to get it below 3:20 any suggestions for what I can cut I need an outside opinion.
Have a good evening everyone.

just wanted to outline the over all theam for our project so we can start fitting everything around it lol
Martyre of the french revalution
Which inspired the american revalution
That brought about democracy to america
Which has now inspired Egypt, Tunisia and Lybia to want democracy
i hope evryones okay with this we can also compair marat and the poor Iranian woman in sams post as well as the art that the times seemed to inspire ie neoclassiclism agenst col gaff's properganda posters.
Thought we could link this back to the Death of Marat. We could look at how revolutions always have martyrs as symbols for their causes.
I got one which is Movements in painting by Patricia Fride-Carrassat and Isabelle Marcade. It has each movement from the time period we are looking at as well as different artists and where they were from.
I also got another book Neoclassicism by David Irwin. It's full of different stuff,not only the artmovement but what was happening at the time and it has a full section of Jacques-Louis David and the painting Death of Marat.
If you get to have a look at them that would be cool but if not i'm going to bring them to our meeting tomorrow. I will try and get some of my notes up that i've taken from these books tonight.

|Jean-Paul Marat was who the painting By J.L Davies is about;|
AKA Jean-Paul Mara
Birthplace: Boudry, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
Location of death: Paris, France
Cause of death: Assassination
Remains: Buried, Saint Etienne-du-Mont, Paris, France
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Executive summary: French revolutionary
After looking at what you guys have wrote, it made me think of the romantic and idealistic views of artists as well as french artistic movements and aspects that surround the french revolution, coming from my point of view. i wondered how does Romanticism affect artists around the time of the French Revolution and came across this image that fits well with this era, style and cultural and politic aspects. How does an artists opinions and life style affect their creative works ?

First republican government
The Chinese revolution came about with the collapse of the Manchu dynasty, a result of increasing internal disorders, pressure from foreign governments, and the weakness of central government. A nationalist revolt from 1911 to 1912 led to a provisional republican constitution being proclaimed and a government established in Beijing (Peking) headed by Yuan Shihai. The Guomindang were faced with the problems of restoring the authority of central government and meeting the challenges from militaristic factions (led by warlords) and the growing communist movement.
After 1930 Jiang launched a series of attacks that encircled the communists in southeast China and led to an attempt by communist army commander Chu Teh to break out. The resulting Long March to northwest China, from October 1934 to October 1935, reduced the communists' army from over 100,000 to little more than 8,000, mainly as a result of skirmishes with Jiang's forces and the severity of the conditions. During the march a power struggle developed between Mao Zedong and Jiang Guo T'ao which eventually split the force. Mao's group finally based itself in Yan'an, where it remained throughout the war with the Japanese, forming an uneasy alliance with the nationalists to expel the invaders.
Mao's troops formed the basis of the Red Army that renewed the civil war against the nationalists in 1946 and emerged victorious after defeating them at Huai-Hai and Nanjing in 1949. As a result, communist rule was established in China under Mao Zedong's leadership.
The French Revolution is one of the most important events in modern history. It was more radical than either the English or American Revolutions, and had a far greater impact on 19th century Europe. The unthinkable fall of the Bourbons resonated throughout Europe, sparking a series of revolutions which rallied behind liberalism and nationalism. The major socialist revolutions of the twentieth century in Russia, China and Cuba were inspired the French example.
I feel that the french revalution is the key to everything it covers two important factors, the change of the past and the influence that change has in more mordern history.
Ps can we all meet soon we need to decide everything :)

I also found this wich is pretty much a biography of Jacques-Louis David and it also talks about Neoclassicism.

- By 1793, the violence of the Revolution dramatically increased until the beheadings at the Place de la Concorde became a constant, leading a certain Dr. Joseph Guillotine it invent a machine that would improve the efficiency of the ax and block and therefore make executions more humane. David was in thick of it. Early in the Revolution he had joined the Jacobins, a political club that would in time become the most rabid of the various rebel factions. Led by the ill-fated Georges Danton and the infamous Maximilien Robespierre, the Jacobins (including David) would eventually vote to execute Louis XVI and his Queen Marie Antionette who were caught attempting to escape across the border to the Austrian Empire.
- At the height of the Reign of Terror in 1793, David painted a memorial to his great friend, the murdered publisher, Jean Marat. As in his Death of Socrates, David substitutes the iconography (symbolic forms) of Christian art for more contemporary issues. The Death of Marat, 1793 an idealized image of David's slain friend is shown holding his murderess's (Charlotte Corday) letter of introduction. The bloodied knife lays on the floor having opened a fatal gash that functions, as does Marat's very composition, as a reference to the entombment of Christ and a sort of secularized stigmata (reference to the wounds Christ is said to have received in his hands, feet and side while on the cross). Is David attempting now to find revolutionary martyrs to replace the saints of Catholicism (which had been outlawed)?
- By 1794 the Reign of Terror had run its course. The Jacobins had begun to execute not only captured aristocrats but fellow revolutionaries as well. Eventually, Robespierre himself would die and the remaining Jacobins were likewise executed or imprisoned. David escaped death by renouncing his activities and was locked in a cell in the former palace, the Louvre, until his eventual release by France's brilliant new ruler, Napoleon Bonaparte. This diminutive Corsican had been the youngest General in the French army and during the Revolution had become a national hero by waging a seemingly endless string of victorious military campaigns against the Austrians in Belgium and Italy. Eventually, Napoleon would control most of Europe, would crown himself Emperor, and would release David in recognition that the artist's talent could serve the ruler's purposes.
I know its a bit long sorry lol :) but i find the history of the painter fascinating. I like how he replaced Catholic saints with modern martyers it gives much more depth to the painting.
I know its a little off topic but i like the fact that the Guillotine somewhere along the line plays a part in this story.
