Take a fascinating journey into moviemaking history with special effects guru Ed Kramer. Remember the droid factory and fiery lava planet in Star Wars II & III? How about the skittering scarab beetles in The Mummy? The Quidditch course in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets? The Kraken in Pirates of the Carribbean II? The Rock Monster in Galaxy Quest? The weather & dramatic ocean effects in Twister, Deep Impact and The Perfect Storm? The T-Rex in Jurassic Park II? The multiplying puppies in 101 Dalmations? And how about the mischievous monkeys in Jumanji?
All of these memorable movie experiences and many more are the work of visual effects expert Ed Kramer. A Senior Technical Director and Visual Effects Artist at Industrial Light and Magic for many years, Ed has been an integral part of making movie magic for some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, including being part of visual effects teams winning the visual effects Academy Award in 2006 (for Pirates of the Carribbean II) and being nominated for four others. He has also done a significant amount of work for television, including Stargate SG-I and he animated the Columbia Pictures Lady with a Torch logo.
Ed's presentations on the history of visual effects are fascinating, and he has worked with many of the industry's top directors. Ed is now a professor teaching the next generation of VFX artists and still actively works in the visual effects industry.

If you can’t define what is most crucial to yourself, family and friends or even coworkers and classmates, you will have severe difficulties in moving ahead with your life. The continual realignment and progress you want in your life should be by your own design rather than by accident, luck or miraculous conception. Refuse to be included in the majority who allow experts to lead them or push them from behind.
The required leading three effects of your life and for the rest or the collective humanity life are:
Relationships with everything in your inner and out universe
Money/Finances - You are submerged and surrounded by money/finances in the world. It is time you know how to extend your arms and hands effortlessly to claim and receive abundance by your own expertise.
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

WE ALL ARE SYMPTOMS in this community suffering from the side effects of scientific control. "Should we kill a Bigfoot? Is it an Ape? or a Human of some type?" These questions are a direct side effect of the fact that we are being ignored by science because they are not allowed to officially look into this. Most of us are not scientists, Officially accredited, and This reality of our existence must change. We cannot continue trying to "Sneak" up to the cookie jar in grandma's house." What does Mark mean by this? Tune in and let's find out!
