Finally, I get hired to do outdoor projections in my own city. From the middle of Sept. to Oct. I was projecting on building around San Francisco and the bay area. To make things different Red Bull had two huge inflatable pile-ons (the same type that were used in the Red Bull Air Race) at each of the projection sites. This required 2 extra people to follow me around and setup these up each time we lit up a wall. Note: I took this picture before they got the pile-ons setup. I wanted to capture the last bit of evening light.

Red Bull's Opening Party for Hatch Fest. More shoots of the lobby of the Baxter Hotel. The following day Sean and I taught a class on VJing 101 and continue outdoor street projections for the festival.

Hatchfest 05 Bozeman MT. Bozeman rocks! I returned to Bozeman this year for the 2nd annual Hatchfest film fest. This year I brought Sean Cooper to help illuminate the Baxter Hotel. We setup 4 screens and one stretch fabric installation. I did an A/V set while Sean VJ'd. Mike Relm headlined with an A/V turntable set using a Pioneer DVJ. Mike had the place going off. Outside on Main St. there was a fashion show, fire performers and a performance with a Tesla Coil. It was like a mini Burning Man in downtown Bozeman.
