He uses this presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 14) to describe the main principles behind animation, and shows how all animated forms (2D, CG) can be used to tell stories in original and creative ways. Posters We found this Facebook gallery of posters for Aalen's past PKNs, and so have added a few of them (the ones we'd never seen before) to our Tumblr blog -- and that's the one for PKN Aalen Vol. 2 you see pictured above.

Learning About Animation, Kyiv's Iconic Architecture, and "Hearting" Parks in San Diego

Presentations Daniel Muñóz is a character animator, and in this presentation from PKN Miami Vol. 14 he explains the main principles and techniques required to produce animation work that manages to suck viewers in. Oleg Zhary is a photographer who lives and works in Kyiv, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he gives us all a stunning photographic tour of the capital of Ukraine through its iconic objects. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster above, for the upcoming PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Here's more from PKN San Diego organizer Leslee Schaffer on the poster, as well as the event itself:We are holding #15 at a venue in which we are hosting an exhibit for the next two weeks, called Orchids, Onions & Opportunities, an offshoot of our Orchids & Onions program. The exhibit strives to accomplish a lot of things; mostly, true to the mission of SDAF (and why PKN is such a great fit for SDAF) to raise awareness and encourage practical discourse about matters relative to our build environment. It’s focus is on San Diego’s civic spaces, and lack thereof. We usually don’t theme our PKNs, having found that an organically curated event keeps things interesting and works quite well for us. This time, because of the exhibit, and other complementary events we decided to offer Making the Case for Public Space as a theme, and keep it interesting by presenting a range of perspectives on the matter. As fro the event flyer, we are blessed with the support of someone we believe to be one of the most inspired artists/designers ever here in San Diego. Her name is Terri Beth Mitchell. You have already posted a couple of her PKN SD flyers on your site, and we thought this one deserved special attention. Photos We have a couple of photo galleries to share with you today.

Using photos from nature, Annegret walks us through the development of the color wheel and its possible applications. (in German) We don't have a full presentation to share, but PKN Vladimir organizer Boris Matin has sent us the following photos (above) and description of this rather interesting participant at the city's recent Vol. 6.Sergei Karelin is a silversmith and goldsmith, a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, and an academic at the Petrovskaya Academy of Science and Art in St. Petersburg. The clock (in the photos) shows the countdown of the time from the moment of the Birth of the Earth to the moment of its collapse, owing to its inevitable approach to the Sun. The work calls for the drawing together of world religions, the union of all nations, and the immediate stop of all war conflicts in the face of the fatal disaster. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for this month's PKN Waterville Vol. 8 (pictured above), and one for PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11, also happening later this month.  Video Pisa's Vol. 2 is happening this Friday, and today we have a video promo to share for the event.  Calendar On this 4th of July, we may not have any PKNs happening in the US, but we do have these two events: PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22 and PKN Utsunomiya Vol. 1.
