Prayer request to the world

For my Mom, who suffered a heart attack before Christmas. For her physical recovery and ongoing feisty, beautiful spirit.

Animation talent and pioneer Lotte Reiniger spent the last year of her life in Dettenhausen, where she died and was cremated. Her tombstone is in a corner of the cemetery there with only one other grave close by. Which doesn’t mean she’s alone: Perhaps because of its isolation and large tree and bench next to her she’s visited by quite a few birds hopping around and on her marker, which I think she’d like!

Where can you find a statue like this? Well, one place is Tübingen, Germany! These two photos were taken in the summer and winter of 2013, respectively. They show the Nymphengruppe (group of nymphs), one of the most famous statues created by Johann Heinrich von Dannecker in 1809. Copies of this statue can be found elsewhere: the Literaturcafé in Tübingen and in Stuttgart.

It’s a challenge to find ways of exhibiting flipbooks for gallery display. These two tabletop versions can be exhibited on any elevated surface and need only a pair of thin cotton gloves placed next to them to be complete.

Animation/Film Buff Tourist Tip: The Lotte Reiniger permanent exhibit (Germany)

Thanks to Jerry Beck & Indiewire for posting my article about the Stadtmuseum’s permanent, permanently wonderful Lotte Reiniger exhibit!

This is the video version of a little flipbook I made for some wonderful University of Kansas donors…

Yes, I’m lucky to be a member of the KU Film & Media Studies teaching team now and among the grateful for those “helping us hatch”!
