Wow. What a packed evening! Links and notes will be along shortly, but in the meantime here are a few headlines that I jotted down.

Peter Jones on Slitscan3. Peter Jones talked about his story with slitscan / timemorphing. Amazingly beautiful and sometimes horrific imagery! Full notes to follow also. In the meantime, check out John Whitney on YouTube and Douglas Trumbull’s stargate sequence from 2001.

4. Stavroula Kounadea talked about the interactions between director and actor. Although I don’t work with actors or directors, I’m still visualising myself as a sphere!
