3d printed artwork

Lest you think I’ve been languishing in some kind of artless state, Here are some photos of what I’ve been using my 3d printer for on the fine art front. My machine is stable, I understand how to fix it when it stops working, and I’m now using some software that’s letting me really scratch the surface of what I can do to use the 3d printers best traits, versus a laser cutter or cnc router. Pretty cool stuff. More to come.

Shooting paintings

This is the new photo studio. I’ve built a couple of light diffusers, and I’m borrowing jono’s 6.3 megapixel canon… No film this time. Last time I did this level of set up, I was shooting slides…. No more of that, I think. We’ll output to slide when necessary.

Quartz composer, another idea

How about an itunes visualizer plugin that would be like a slideshow of quartz composer files? With nice transitions, etc…

Quartz Composer

Quartz Composer: “

Wow! My brother is diving into Quartz Composer, part of the Dev Tools in Tiger. Amazing stuff. Graphical programming for graphical animations. All of Quartz exposed in an elegant GUI. For you Tiger fans, here’s a little test… clap your hands to make the image move.

(Via musings.)

better yet, turn on some music. :) (if you’re on a laptop)

Waterborne @ SXSW

Waterborne seriously rocked my nuts off this weekend. I was already expecting brilliance because Ben has always been a talented mofo, and the film actually surpassed my (already high) expectations. The film was scored by Dredg and Navdeep, two amazing and impressive aural talents. The cast was awesome, conveying powerful characters layered over a very powerful plot.

I got the news last night that the film won 2nd place for Audience Choice Awards at SXSW, with positive comments coming in about the direction, music, characters, actors, story… Here are some comments from Aint It Cool….

Waterborne is an account of a terrorist attack in Los Angeles in which the city’s reservoir is poisoned and effectively turns the town into chaos. During the movie we follow a few different strands of characters as they interact with each other in this catastrophic time.

I dug the hell out of this movie. It doesn’t have any major stars in it, but rather a bunch of people who you will recognize as sort of side-characters from other films. Chris Masterson is probably the biggest name on the bill. The other actors and actresses include the female neighbor of Peter Parker (Mageina Tovah) in Spider-Man 2, the O-Face guy (Greg Pitts) and Samir (Ajay Naidu) from Office Space and Uncle Rico (Jon Gries) from Napoleon Dynamite. This excellent cast brought the movie together and didn’t draw attention to themselves by making it into a big action-movie type of thing. There are a few really tense moments in this piece, but the characters were the most important part.

Afterwards, the director, producers and most of the cast was there to do a Q&A which was pretty awesome considering the lack of Q&As at some of the bigger “more prestigious” films showing this year. Check this one out if you get a chance.

WATERBORNE has a lot going for it. This little film that could has a cool premise (someone’s poisoned the water hole!), a very competent cast (including Jon Gries, who was in “Born of Water”, heh!) giving solid performances, great music, and compelling camera work. I like the fact that the bio-terror plot device is just the backdrop for the development of the ensemble of characters. My friends mentioned that this is the kind of film that may get overlooked by distributors because they’re all sure someone else will buy it. I hope that doesn’t happen, because this film really does deserve to be seen.
