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.
An advance thanks to Big Bear Lake International Film Festival for screening The Simple Carnival’s “A Geek Like Me” at this upcoming Saturday’s 3D Film Showcase!
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”!
Well, it’s called The Geekie Awards, and The Simple Carnival’s “A Geek Like Me” is an official selection there!
“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.)
I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland, but I guess one of my films will be going there instead! “A Geek Like Me” was accepted to the Life in 3D Symposium at the Edinburgh College of Art!
Here’s an article I wrote about a 3D effect called “retinal rivalry.” It was published in the latest issue of Stereo World, magazine of the National Stereoscopic Association:
The Seven Deadly Rivalries (PDF)
My Halloween costume is on the back cover of the magazine
, and my mug is also in an article about for winning an award
at the LA3D Movie Festival.
I don’t think I’ve ever taken up seven pages of a magazine before, but thanks, guys! It’s a real honor.
My win at last month’s LA 3-D Movie Festival for “A Geek Like Me” ended up making The Hollywood Reporter, Ain’t It Cool News, Creative Cow, Stereo World, Stereoscopy News, 3D-News, 3D Manifesto, and my old hometown newspaper, The Ellwood City Ledger. A big thank you to everyone who covered “A Geek Like Me” and this really fun event!
