THE DUET by Glen Keane
This is one of those videos that one has to share for the admiration that one feels simply by watching the images, not to mention the motion. Glen Keane has a career of utter success with Disney’s Classics like: The Little Mermaid, The Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Tarzan and Tangled. This short film is a much simpler project and yet it still captivates the attention of the viewer very easily… I think that when images engage one’s interest without words is exactly when one can acknowledge the power of communicating clearly through the visual language.
Cover of Where the Wild Things Are
Maurice Sendak was an American illustrator and writer of children’s books. One of his most beloved works is Where the wild things are, book that many years later was adapted for the screen and directed by Spike Jonze. Today, we would like to remember his work and its transcendence with the essay: The King of the World.

May the children in you be still wild!
I do not only agree with this note, but also have been in that position in which you would love to continue doing something in the creative field, but either have to move because of the money or because there are other aims to pursue. Otherwise, you would stock yourself in the sameness of the knowledge.
I also believe that in the creative field, when someone feels with some kind of freedom, it forces to develop discipline in each person, a skill that (as I understand) is the base of many artists and the reflection of the real will to do something.
I hope that someday, the field of the arts and culture can be regarded as an ‘ideal’ place to be, and not only as the ‘you-have-to-struggle-in-it’ kind of place, exactly because arts and culture are one of the most important fuels for our social life, so we should be involved with the field as much as we can. In my point of view, Arts and Culture reflect more than what men have created, and are so essential, that can be involved in any subject, quality that I highly appreciate.

Whether you liked the comics, or the original X-Men movies, or the latest X-Men first class, this encounter may be something worth watching. Talented actors work together for the new X-Men: Days of Future Past. Besides it seems that will be a time-rollercoaster as well. Love the movies that play with time 🙂 It shows how irrelevant it may be.
