Andrey Tarkovsky



Ingmar Bergman


He was short, bold, prankster and Jew, born in Riga (one of the few cities I love east of Rome) and died in Moscow in the year, when I was born. I like talented people and I am tired to hear my own voice -- so, I decided to let Eisenstein narrate film pages. (I do the same with other directories -- now you can meet Plato and Aristotle, Stanislavsky and Meyerhold on my pages.) His friends called him "Eisen" -- so, let be friends!

As you can see I try to identify pages visually by changing backgrounds. (Forget it!)

Dynamic (changeable) content is a step to be more interactive without extra work. Put auto responders to work.

The biggest problem with Film-North is that the site has no directions. I do not see how it could be organized around film classes, unless to use it for 200X Aesthetics, which I do not like to teach. "Film Studies" should have another angle -- the concept is missing. (Note from a Director)


"Notes" are the pages for real readers, you, who come back to read more. Somebody like me, who come back -- to write more.
Long ago I promised myself not to write anything you can find in other books. I think that I am breaking my rule now...


Oct. 2003: Over five years since I started my web-existence. I began it as keeping my notes and texts for classes, shows, writing... I still do the same. The problem is that my webzone became too big and needs some new systematization...


The Paradox of Globalism: "Private in Public" (Method Acting Formula), not Public in Private (I'm not mad yet). Yes, I believe that the Web-Net is a new medium and I try to use it as such. The way we use the words to write diary... "User-friendly"? I am not Yahoo and Amazon, I don't make my living of the webbing. It's my "service"! I am the main user -- and yes, I try to make the pages friendly to me...

2004. I have four acting directories and I thought that I do not have to write about film acting. As usual, I was wrong.

About the quotes gears on my pages: Eisenstein -- understandable, as well as the glossary. Zen and Nietzsche: two oppisites -- Tao vs. Individual (both are applicable to directing), the secret is to know when use one or another.

* After so many years of webbing I cannot change the nature of my webpages -- they are what they were from the start; notes, thoughts, points I make for myself for classes and productions. Do they have an independent existence? Maybe, somewhere in the future...

1.17.06. Looks like my pages are done by a young man. No order, little of organization, no visible plans... I am not sure that I would start this "project" today. I am getting old. I am old. What plans could I have?

Now it's public. And already I geared "my notes" to be read, but how to rework it to be read by others? Should it?

Somewhere (when?) the goals of the webpages changed...

What a mess!

Notes for Film-North WebSite

2009... 2004: This is the end of my webmaster's road. Webbing takes too much time and I reached the max of competency in my web-building. I am not leaving the Web, but I want to focus on what it was intended for, when I began six years ago -- writing.

I still believe that we are in the midst of the greatest revolution and therefore do not fully understand the changes the Internet will make in the big history. Net is the extreme expression of so-called "Information Age" (3rd Millennium) and goes beyond a technological revolution. I am glad that I practically experience the process we dreamed about in the sixties. Then it was mostly theory and the main frame computer at the Kurchatov Institute where I interned in the nine grade became a laptop I am using now. It took one generation to get here, my generation.

If you read virtual theatre pages, you know that we are at the very first step of this evolution, which will change not only the world, but most importantly, us. Unlike the previous revolutions (Industrial Revolution was am invisible information revolution), this one is pure, about the essence of humanity. Probably the most dangerous...


In short, the "working zones" -- writing pages (including SHOWS directory, but "The Taming of Shrew" and "Oedipus05" are the last two productions I keep online). Nonfiction and plays. Time to use my web-space for my and mine only data.

More and more I use my webpages for multiple purposes (different classes) and this is getting confusing. For me, students and cyber-folks. I even had to start the new Notes directory, as if the "notes" pages I have in each sub-directory are not enough! "Notes pages" are mostly for myself -- what I have to do, what is needed, what is missing on my pages, what could be done and so on. Self-reflections. Plans. Inner monologues. Webmaster's talk...

Well, it took me a while to understand very simple things about my own webpages! For example, that those "notes" pages are the endnotes! Or that my new headings "notes" on every page are the footnotes. They are pages nevertheless! What about my "sidetalking" -- the comments you see on the right? "Pages within pages"?

I call them "service" pages, to help me and you to use the "content" (subject) pages. When I began I didn't have them... Maybe better to send you to the Web directory, where I keep my webbing experience records.

So, what's up? Redesigned the index page for each directory. All directories have service pages -- Notes, Intro, Help, in addition to Index. More "incerts" like FN help: Plans for 2004: I am not putting anymore links htmlgears, or graphics. I am about to go over 5G/month for the rest of the year (and most likely ever after).... New Film Acting pages (six) are not listed yet. They all are in different directories -- two are in Biomechanics (dynamics of camera action), one is in Method Acting -- text, subtext and pre-text ("acting in pauses), one -- in film directing (Actors).

Of course, when I say "webpage" it's very often means a "chapter"...

Film-North Directing & Theory
Semiotics Intro
To Myself:

What Directories to list for the floating frame? [Remove Theatre Directories!]

Popup Window = Film-North banner! Use new banners! Link to yourself!

What are the "incentives" for readers of film and theatre pages? Game? See Hamlet 2002: webshow (not ready yet). Maybe, the web-directing will work.

Originally, as I said, I had "notes" pages for myself (as you can see); for what is missing, what needs work and etc. I hope the new HTMLgears I place everywhere could serve for better systematic navigation. Also, I am ending each page with SUMMARY, NOTES, QUESTIONS, HOMEWORK and NEXT sections (for students).

I made many service pages, like FAQ, References, appendix and so on to free the content pages. I do not have a newletter, ezine, or mailing list; if you want to follow the changes, get on Directors Forum, I post updates there.

My personal "home" pages now looks like a portal! I feel that I reached the level of my competence as a webmaster. From now on I only can mess them up, the pages, ... as I do. Look at my online callendar to see the classes I teach and get on the Class List to follow the process [ my mailing list ].

Let me repeat myself (from Film600 and script.vtheatre.net):

Where teaching and studying (research) meet --

Theme-thought, according to different playwrights (Shakespeare, Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov and so on) and directors (Fellini, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, Bergman pages).

Connections with other themes (list): family, gender and sex...

Finally, my own practical investigations: shows.vtheatre.net (only recently I began to make themes pages, Don Juan 2003, for example).

And the nonfiction (writing), of course: HIM, Father-Russia, PostAmeriKa, Self, POV, Tech (gatepages are in WRITE directory).

Yeah, yeah, there is more -- "philo" pages, metaphysics: in theatre theory directory, for instance (topics-bar: space, time and etc.)
Plus, Virtual Theatre and Book of Spectator!

Web? Oh, this is just medium. Like stage, screen, writing...

Bergman -- FILM directory

From/To Anatoly-Webmaster:

A few years ago I decided to reorganize the webpages into web-books _ I am still not sure how this new format looks like. Two of us (writer and webmaster) keep changing things as we go; I teach a class -- I update the pages (before, during and after). I direct a show -- the same. Where will this online writing take me?

I don't know. I hope the books will be born, but when?

... What to do about the unkowns? I try not to think about it. The webbing became a part of my life, perhaps a style of living.

Do I write more than before? I write every day, because my sites are nothing but the content -- I have nothing to sell, no products, no company behind. Nevertheless, I am a publisher.

I was a journalist and an editor since I was twenty (small papers in Moscow) -- and at the end of my life I am to die as a publisher?..

Or a broadcaster?

Why do I do it, if I am not making living on it?


[ I must finish this thought. ]

WEB-CREDO: In what way my webpages could be useful = the manner I myself use them. I keep my notes, the important stuff I have to remember when I teach, direct or write. About Chekhov or Stanislavsky, Sophocles or Brecht, the principles and thoughts that need constant attention because they have no final answers, but endless questioning.

Long ago Hegel said that "truth is a process" and I believe that being is becoming. So, I place some notes (and quotes -- to stimulate myself), something to remind me what is in focus, to help myself to stay focused... If reading those pages can help you as well, great. If not, fine. It helps me.

I try to limit myself, to the same names, the same titles. I believe that reading Shakespeare ten times is better experience than reading 10 new unknown plays. My webpages evolve without any specific plans, I made them and I work on them on the "need only" basis. You see, I do not have a "situation" page, I deal with this construct daily -- in class, on stage, on page... For actors, directors, writers? For myself!

Do I understand (dramatic) "situation"? Maybe more than my students... Well, I write it only to explain why I have my webpages and have so many. To explain what you can expect from the pages and me.
