An advance thank you to the Mt. Hood Independent Film Festival for screening The Simple Carnival’s “A Geek Like Me” tomorrow night. Wish I could be there!
Issue 98 of Stereoscopy — the magazine of the International Stereoscopic Union (ISU). My article, “The Making of The Simple Carnival’s ‘A Geek Like Me’,” is in this issue.
Had a great time at the Mill Valley Film Festival last weekend.
Met a bunch of interesting, talented people. Got to see “A Geek Like Me” projected in the gorgeous Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center. Saw some great movies, and one memorably awful one. Met up with an old friend. Got to know some other friends better. Saw the lead guitarist from Metallica. Was interviewed on cable TV. Saw Yoda and Indiana Jones! (Kind of.)
As an aside, if you look closely at the 3D Sideshow poster from the festival, my hand-drawn mug is in the bottom row.
Had an incredible time at 3D-Con. Met and hung out with so many interesting people, saw a lot of great 3D art, bought several cool 3D toys, and won the Paul Wing Best in Show award for “A Geek Like Me”!
“A Geek Like Me” is going to be screened this weekend at Indie Film Con:
So…two bits of news:
1) The video for The Simple Carnival’s “A Geek Like Me” is going to be featured on a blu-ray 3D shorts compilation in Germany! I believe it’s going to be called “Best of 3D.”
2) I was interviewed by Torsten Hofmann for his excellent 3DContentBlog site! Check it out at the interview here.
A big thanks to Torsten for making both of these things happen!
Just learned that “A Geek Like Me” was screened at the Stereoscopic Displays & Applications conference in San Francisco in February. It didn’t win anything, but I thought it was amusing that The Simple Carnival was competing alongside Metallica’s 3D movie. (Metallica’s movie didn’t win anything either.)
