This piece was developed over the period 1995-1999 and finally finished in mid 2000. It was nominated to Cannes 2001 by Nora Barry of Druid Media and premiered at her groundbreaking web launch, The Bit Screen. The Bit Screen was the first to offer films made specifically for the Internet (web cinema). The web site launched in June of 1998 and screened weekly from January, 1999 through July, 2003. Her on-line festival Streaming Cinema, the first US festival of web based cinema and interactive media, screened eight times in three years in Philadelphia, Boston, Lisbon, Seoul, Linz and Amsterdam. Druid produced all aspects of the festival, from festival programming and planning, through marketing and public relations. As a result of Nora's enthusiastic sponsorship, Life at Night has been seen and cataloged in festivals and archives internationally. Music by John O'Brien. Web programming by E. J. Fuhr.
