“Stop motion” – а Collection with dedication
Lecturers, colleagues, and friends from the academic circles dedicated a compendium of research and analytical texts to the anniversary of Prof. Lyudmil Hristov. Authors in the edition are speakers from the New Bulgarian University (NBU) and from other higher schools, his colleagues, friends, and people with like beliefs. The collection reflects an endless variety of topics that are captivating while offering all the excitement to Prof. Hristov today. A general reference point for them is the art of cinema and its genesis through ancient images to its modern versatility. In addition to cinema art, articles examined the visual images in advertising and graphic design as well as “the visual as a tool for knowledge and change”. The inter-disciplinary character of the collection is a bright example of the remarkable result emanating from the collaboration between practitioners in the individual arts and academic researchers (Professor Hristov is one of the greatest Bulgarian cinematographers, also a lecturer and head of the department of “Cinema, advertising and show business” in NBU).
