Meat in Space report


Menu for Meat in Space nightA fantastic night last week, thank you to Neil C Smith, Tim Watts, James Davies, Efthymios Chatzigiannis and Dariusz Dziala for their great presentations.

Neil talked us through his praxis framework – don’t forget, if you’re interested in creating interactive or generative artwork, you can download praxis on Google Code and give it a go, it’s all Open Source. Watch an excerpt from Sound Pool.

Tim Watts showed us some of his great experimentation with Flash recreating an existing image but with a beautiful particle effect adding a touch of randomness and personalisation to the original. What’s it for? When you start asking that question, you just know you’re making something interesting.

James Davies, a past raffle winner, walked us through the creation process in Flash, Premiere and AE, behind his wonderful videos for First Fold Records. Check the YouTube channel, and the First Fold website.

Dariusz Dziala and Efthymios Chatzigiannis demoed their VJing and audio collaboration, Synaesthetics. They also showed us how it’s all done, and finally, for those who could hang on, Dariusz, Efthymios and Neil jammed together, a world first, happening in Oxford!

The Brothers McLeod, illustrator Greg and writer Myles, will be talking about their latest project, a half hour comedy pilot called The Isle of Spagg. They’ll be telling us how they came up with the idea, how they found the time and money to make it, and what they hope to do with it in the future. The talk will also include an exclusive screening of the finished pilot.
