    This is part 1 of an in-progress video guiding the Processing coder through the mental transformation needed to start using OpenFrameworks to create equivalent work. The video is being created as course material for the live GAFFTA class, and is not intended to be a replacement for the class itself. As OpenFrameworks and related technology are highly perishable, this video is not recommended for use in long-term courseware. For teaching purposes, always have a live, interactive human teacher.

      It was supposed to be just another day at the beach. Until a thrill seeking, adrenaline junky regional airline transport pilot decided to try and surf the big waves of the 50 year storm. It quickly turned into a rescue operation....when the best weren't available, it was time to call in the Chantz Guard....It's Baywatch meets Point Break meets the Guardian. Over 3000 photos are used to create this Lego stop animation movie. Set locations and audio captures include Detroit, Belleville, Hawaii, San Francisco (Alcatraz), New Jersey and Labrador Farms. Thanks to The Dallas Jack for loaning his Legos for the duration of the 3 month shoot. Shot using a Canon Vixia HFM31.

      • The Vision

        This a a piece of video art I made for an exhibition of art made from or on tea towels. This was projected onto a screen made from tea towels (set out like the first shot in the video). The soundtrack was performed live at the opening of the exhibition by my alter ego Professor Blix. The artists statement went something like - "when I was young my brother snapped me on the bum with a tea towel so hard that I saw a vision..." but really I just wanted to make something that looked good when projected onto four tea towels. It's kinda simple eye candy but I hope you like it.

                Our Youth Theatre Director Matthew worked with Local Solutions Intesive Mentoring Support Service for residents at Homeground Hostel to produce a film about the perceptions of homelessness. Over 6 weeks the group spent time debating and creating, using stop animation, music and documentary film techniques to produce the film, which also formed the final product of their Discover Arts Award which they also achieved during the sessions. Creating this video gave the group the opportunity to raise their voice and have their say about the services that they access, being listened to as 'service users', the perceptions other people have of homelessness and how wrong they can be.

                    The Cobra Show - E.A.S.T. 2011 I cannot believe it has been a year since the last E.A.S.T. Cobra Show. This year my project has really challenged my procastinating behavior. Lately, I have been obsessed with light writing/painting. So this year I thought I would experiment with light writing, animation, and editing. My good friend and creative partner, Andrea Minze, decided we would do it the hard way. The use of the video was to project it on a large wall @ Cobra Studios to introduce the artists displaying their work. We began the process by taking a photograph, turning it into a stencil, cutting out appropriate holes and shapes, and finally laminating the stencil for durability. We then took those stencils, jerry rigged them in the basement of CharlieTango and her restroom (b/c it's the only dark place in her place) and started the long and tedious process of taking long exposures of the LED lights through the back of the stencil. After countless hours, and photographs I assembled and cut to some of my favorite new tracks. So here you go. Laav of art. Thanks MDB, Ruthie J, Cuppy G, and Meowinzey
