SIGGRAPH 2015: Ritsumeikan contributions to the SIGGRAPH conference

Our half-day course on how to design and build new musical interfaces was accepted for SIGGRAPH 2015. Unfortunately, I will not be able to travel from Ritsumeikan to Los Angeles to attend Siggraph this time but Prof. Sid Fels (UBC) will be presenting our course. Additionally, one of my video artworks was selected for screening at Siggraph 2015. ‘Soft Pong Inari’ with a soundtrack composed by seminar guest Prof. Palle Dahlstedt (Universities of Gothenburg and Aalborg) was selected for the ‘Enhanced Vision – Digital Video’ Siggraph exhibit and will screen as part of the SIGGRAPH 2015 artistic program.

Shoot Film!

Demo Reel — 2012 from Evan Prosofsky on Vimeo.

Check out this show reel of music videos with cinematography by Montreal based Evan Prosofsky. All shot with super 35mm and super 16mm and Arriflex cameras. Perhaps you’d already noticed the filmic look of Grimes’ breakthrough video for ‘Oblivion‘, directed by, also based in Montreal, Emily Kai Bock, and featuring the football team of my alma mater マギル大学. The demo reel comes with the byline: “Please help keep film alive! Shoot film.” and Evan’s CV indicates that most of his projects are done with film, though he has used Red cameras on a couple of videos.

Anyways, shoot film! It’s one way to stand out from the crowd.
