When @RealDonaldTrump announced he would be holding a campaign rally on June 19 in #Tulsa, #Oklahoma, there was immediate backlash. #Juneteenth nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
Not only had the president chosen #Juneteenth - a day celebrating freedom and recognizing the resilience of enslaved people - but he also chose the city where a mob of white supremacists terrorized and killed Black people, destroying #BlackWallStreet in the 1921 #TulsaMassacre.
As our nation grapples with recent police killings of Black people and calls to address systemic racism and white supremacy culture in our society, @RealDonaldTrump was criticized for co-opting historically significant spaces for Black people for himself.

National Guard marches through a quiet residential neighborhood in #Minneapolis, screaming at citizens to get inside.

Soldiers stop to point their guns at residents on their balcony.

They yell “LIGHT THEM UP” as they fire riot control rounds at them.
A reporter interviews a #Minneapolis nurse who was working at the medical tent, treating a man bleeding badly from a rubber bullet wound.

Military police opened fire on the nurses, storming their tent. “I told him I wouldn’t leave him, I feel so bad” 😔
Ali Veshi and his CNN crew come under fire from #Minneapolis police with tear gas and rubber bullets.

“There was absolutely no provocation. The police just drove up, split the crowd in two and started firing in both directions.”

Abrimos hilo sobre #VFX, donde muestro planos de películas antes y después del trabajo de efectos visuales, y os enseño el proceso por pasos en #GIFs animados. ¿Va?
Empezamos con esta escena de #DoctorStrange. Aquí podéis ver qué es real y qué es digital.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine
Seguimos con #TheMartian. Podéis ver que se rodó en un set bastante completo y que digitalmente se añadieron el paisaje marciano del fondo, los efectos atmosféricos y la corrección de color. Aquí por pasos y capas.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine #VFX #EfectosVisuales #GIFs
Continuamos con varios planos de #AliceInWonderland (2010) de Tim Burton. Como veis en ocasiones hay sets de rodaje, pero en otras lo único que se conserva del plate rodado es a las actrices y poco más.

Sería muy interesante armar el maratón de #MCU alrededor de #Avengers, pero acomodando todas las escenas de todas las películas en una sola línea temporal. No incluyo las series por que sería sumamente largo y complicado.

Abro #hilo y me explico.
#AvengersElHilo
Actualmente hay dos formas (bueno hay un chingo) en que puedes ver todas las películas del Universo Cinematográfico de Marvel:
1.- En el orden cronológico de lanzamiento, es decir comenzar con #IronMan (2008), hasta llegar a #AvengersEndgame (2019).
2.- Viéndolas en orden cronológico de tiempo de los eventos, es decir, comenzar con lo que sucedió primero con #CaptainAmerica: The First Avenger y terminando con #AvengersEndgame. Esto sin contar los "flashbacks" con los que comienzan algunas como #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy

In #BlackPanther, a unique metal called #vibranium helped the fictional African nation of #Wakanda become the most technologically advanced country on the planet.

#ReelvsRealCIA #Oscars

Do you think vibranium is:
The #vibranium in Black Panther’s suit protects him from kinetic damage, & vibranium sneakers are both super-quiet & amazing shock absorbers for jumping. Those would be great for spies, right?

Too bad vibranium isn’t real.

#ReelvsRealCIA #BlackPanther
The magic metal from #Wakanda might not exist, but there are real-life materials that possess some similar qualities to those of the fictional Wakandan isotope, #vibranium.

Hace años, el PAPA BENEDICTO XVI escribió un libro en él que descubría que LOS REYES MAGOS procedían del sur de Andalucía, del Reino de TARTESSOS: religionenlibertad.com/vaticano/26903….

Me puse a investigar sobre ello y di con una recién descubierta MITOLOGÍA ANDALUZA que necesita un #HILO
TARTESSOS apenas aparece en los libros de Historia escolares, por la poca información de la que "parece" que se dispone (ya veremos).

Era la civilización más occidental conocida por los griegos alrededor del S. V a. C. y ocupaba zonas de las actuales SEVILLA, HUELVA Y CÁDIZ.
No sólo las historias del geógrafo griego Heródoto, que escribió sobre su último rey ARGANTONIO, son las únicas fuentes de las que disponemos.

En el ANTIGUO TESTAMENTO se hace varias alusiones a los "BARCOS DE TARSIS (o Tharsis)" y hoy en día se sabe que procedían de Huelva.

So, let me do a bit of story time on @KanyeWest, since he thinks he's out of The Sunken Place. And I can't thank @JordanPeele enough for his metaphor.
*stirs tea in teacup*.
I have a confession. The only reason why I am not mad at @KanyeWest right now is because I have held a petty grudge against him for many years because he had a mother with a Ph.D. who taught Literature at Chicago State University, yet he named his first album, "College Dropout."
I did not mean to hold the grudge that long; but it just continued because of everything I would feel every single time I saw that album and thought about not only his Mother but everything at Chicago State University, home of the Gwendolyn Brooks Black Writer's Conference.

So, I went to #Wakanda.
At first glance, it was an impressive place even thought I am allergic to monarchies, all monarchies.
It was wondrous to find a country that had ducked under colonialism (don't scare me like that colonizer), that was able to develop according to is own laws, using is own resources for its social welfare.

I wasn't kidding.

I like good movies, comic book movies, and mass-market cultural touchstones. So obviously I was gonna like #BlackPanther

/2
And I was most interested in what it had to say about the legacy of colonialism and slavery, globalism and international responsibility, the refugee crisis, and race.

Y’all. I’m sitting in a restaurant w 2 mentors who were just blessing my soul. A Black couple walks past the table & the brotha stops to say he likes my blazer & that he was “reading it throughout their whole dinner.” We look at him like wha..? This is the blazer (by @AnnaTeiko)
He then says he’s from Ghana & speaks Twi & said that each panel of material was a part of a proverb or parable. The sista w him (Black American) kinda looks sheepish b/c they (nicely) interrupted our convo. She says “he’s been talking about this all thru dinner...”
Then one mentor says, well what do they say? And he interprets a few, explains that the designs are like an alphabet. Now. OF COURSE I’m having #Wakandan heart palpitations. Because this is a Pan African moment and well. #Wakanda.
