Chronicles of a campground animation that broke new ground at this year's Folk Fest: Ohm, an interactive dragon that is sound-reactive and breathes smoke.

This video features the music of the campground Marching Band and the song "Gakondo" by the Mighty Popo (courtesy of Borealis Records).
HUGE thanks to The Winnipeg Folk Festival crew, especially Rebecca Winkworth, Morgan Hamill and Chris Frair for putting up with our impromptu visit, Bill and friends for the extra Arduino, Les Bester of les.net for his amazing collection of batteries, and the Castle Boys crew for their insane love, support, and variety of power tools.
The Dragon Crew is:
Meg Athavale and Curt Wachs (PO-MO Inc.)
Dan Goldberg, Chris Gamby, Kayla Jeanson, Don Greenburg
