New Lightrhythm Visuals Remix
I just finished a remix of Joana Lopes nervous discharge single on the Notions 2 DVD. I really like Joana's aesthetic, checkout her site linked above.

Here is a small sample.
In my version of the remix I took stills from the video loaded them into the Edirol CG8 and use it as a live input into Modul8. I recorded the output uncompressed and then edited the footage in FCP and AE.

MMA Scion Battleground
Aug. 2nd San Francisco CA
Flavorgroup asked me to create a multi-screen environment for a Scion sponsored event at Fort Mason.
The Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason is a very large pier converted to an event space.
Cable runs, are always hundreds and hundreds of feet. Sean and I spent a full day running cable and hanging screens.

Here is Flavorgroup's verbiage.
On Saturday August 2nd, 2008 over 2000 party people descended on the transformed Fort Mason Festival Pavilion for Scion Battleground. An event originally focused on a fight component, was recreated featuring Hip-Hop heavy hitter Talib Kweli and the surprises didn't stop there. Adding to the frenzy was a high flying ariel antics from the San Francisco based Vau De Vire Society, legendary B Boy Machine and the Renegade Dance crew and a pillow fight from the infamous Suicide Girls. The event proved to be a TKO.

Produced by Flavor Group, Ankh Marketing and Manly Media.

Facebook F8 Developers Conference SF CA
I was asked by Facebook to implement interactive elements for Facebook's annual F8 Developers Conference held in San Francisco. July 23rd.

The concept was user generated content, much like the site itself.
We brought on board the photoboof guys for streaming photos from the boof! to the large screen in the center of the room. The feed was also sent wirelessly to the VJ station where we mixed the photoboof! stream with a roaming photographer who was also sending me wireless streams of photos from around the venue. Added to that was a Processing app built by Wayne ( The app was capable of taking text messages, twitter-like text updates and displaying them with a sound reactive component that went live to all the screens in the Hackathon area. This project was called, f8 Feed" and it was a great way for guest to announce the projects they were working on, shout outs to friends and general announcements. The app was could be controlled by key commands or the Griffin Powermate.
On the audio side we integrated Moldover's Octamaher
This allowed guest to collectively create their own mashups on 8 customized midi keyboards.
In addition to interactive elements I installed a signature VJ Culture piece and VJ'd live before Thievery Corp performed.
Special thanks to Sean Cooper for install and VJing.
