1. The Secret Book of Secrets
    A short film created in my Green Screen Movie Class at Beam Center
    The kids wrote the story, created all the props, and acted in the film

    This was my second ‘make a movie’ class and was very different from the first.  Mainly, the group was all boys, so naturally when given (almost) free reign to create a film, it was going to be an action movie.

    A lot of the ideas I liked in my previous class like having the students draw scenes and then be green screened into them, or creating the sound track with some Casio’s and effects pedals were nixed in favor of more explosions, and theme songs.

    While it took two months to edit, think it came out alright.  The password is beam.

    RGB LED PXL 3.0 gif

    Im teaching 2 workshops in Newark about how to make my RGB LED PXL 3.0. Its a simple ambient light object that glows all sorts of different colors and uses clothespins and brass fasteners for switches.  Each workshop ends with light painting session.  The evening workshop will also have beer!

    The workshop is a collaboration with LNY as part of his show at Solo(s) Project House.

    Several years ago Eric Drasin and I opened up a VCR that was receiving video from a DV cam and started hacking.  We didnt really know what we were doing and we eventually killed the machine, but here are some gif’s and stills from that session.
