stupixart asked: I am working a book about physical comedy, and I am looking for good sources of Chaplin images. I see you have the copyright info from Roy Expert, and I know about them. Can you suggest sources for quality photos from his earlier days? Either with permissions or unrestricted?

chaplinfortheages:

That’s great you are writing a book, I will certainly pass the word after completion, keep me updated I am particularly interested in the Artistry of his movement and physicality that he brought to the tramp.

I don’t know if you are familiar with Dan Kamin, he is an expert in pantomime, he is the premiere source in that field, he is an expert in Charlie’s  Artistry & movement and the way he communicated with the audience.  He actually coached Robert Downey Jr for his role in the film “Chaplin” & Johnny Depp’s “roll dance” in the film Benny & Joon.

Dan Wrote an excellent  book in 2008 “Artistry & Movement - The comedy of Charlie Chaplin. I have read it numerous times.

Sources of his images - First I would contact the Official Chaplin Office in Paris France. Kate Guyonvarch is the head of Roy Export Office and is very kind and helpful with anything Chaplin. They do in fact own everything doing with images from his films 1918 on, they also have the copyright on his image.

Images from his earlier films I’m not sure who owns them as they were in the public domain for years and she will be able to guide you.  Most likely I would think is the authors of books, if that is the case I can recommend many of the books I have read. I f you look at the website Chaplin Picture Database you will see a thousand images that they have in their Archives.

I don’t have the copyright but with the Chaplin Office but am authorized have to post his images. I contacted them shortly after I started my blog not to have any issues regarding.

Thank you for coming to me for help on this. I have been studying him for the last 3 years, it has been almost a full time endeavor. 

I look forward to reading your book.

Kind Regards

As I have mentioned I love the fact he was so ahead of his time.  Most people back in this time period went along to get along. He did not and he did sometimes suffer for it, but that is how we gain progress, people brave enough to stand on their convictions.

NPR’s Skunk Bear Tumblr has a great new video on the schlieren visualization technique. The schlieren optical set-up is relatively simple but very powerful, as shown in the video. The technique is sensitive to variations in the refractive index of air; this bends light passing through the test area so that changes in fluid density appear as light and dark regions in the final image. Since air’s density changes with temperature and with compressibility, the technique gets used extensively to visualize buoyancy-driven flows and supersonic flows. Since sound waves are compression waves which change the air’s density as they travel, schlieren can capture them, too. (Video credit: A. Cole/NPR’s Skunk Bear)

Schizophrenia: What’s in my head?

When she’s experiencing hallucinations, artist Sue Morgan feels compelled to draw; to ‘get it out of her head’. Sue was diagnosed with schizophrenia about 20 years ago. The drawing is therapeutic, but it’s also Sue’s way of expressing the complex and sometimes frightening secret world in her head. In this film Sue meets Sukhi Shergill, a clinician and researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. He’s also making pictures, but using MRI to peer inside the brains of schizophrenia patients.
