    FreePixel looks at video games as part of the moving image culture. Games are not movies. But games use moving image tradition in their presentation. That is why FreePixel offers a critical look at games and their expressive qualities that grow from the use of the moving image.

    Verion premiere tonight

    Posted by fiezi

    A small plug that the live-animation/theatre production I was working on for the last 4 months – VERION – is premiering tonight in Trondheim, Norway. It’s a 75 minute show.

    As it is in norwegian, it’s a bit tough for me to explain what exactly is going on – but it’s a sci-fi piece about breaking out of the order and finding out who you are.

    The overall production time for the piece was 4 months with a very, very low budget. Creative director was Catherine Kahn, who also wrote the script together with Trond Morten Kristensen Vernaasen. You can check out the full credits on the poster.

    I was in charge of the Art and Technical department, and had help from a couple of illustrators (Chris, Mika, Hannah) and Chris Sugrue as an additional programmer who developed some super-useful tools for animation and ported videotextures to moviesandbox using some openFrameworks functionality (original code by Theo Watson).

    I would like to post some sort of post-mortem on the way things went in this production, if people are interested.

    Good luck with the Premiere. Sounds like an amazing production. Wish I could beam to Trondheim for that event. Will this be recorded somehow? Look foward to try out all those nice new moviesandbox features coming from that project.

    Good luck!
    I hope you document the whole thing (including the technical details on how you got there)?

    yes, i was planning on also talking a bit about the economic aspect of this project to give some perspective on the budgets and time involved and where the money came from.

    Oh, and the premiere went very well. Thanks!
