The Simple Carnival at the Mill Valley Film Festival

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.

Interview with 3DContentBlog

geek1So…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!

Retinal rivalry, a Halloween costume, and more

stereo_world_3Here’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.
