‘Meanwhile’ wins an award at CINEMA TOUS ECRANS, Geneva

Friday, November 21st, 2008

‘Meanwhile’, an interactive, non-linear film I made in 2006 with my collaborators in the group ‘computer.says.no: Shelley Simmons, Chris Mendis and Jeff Howard has won an award at the CINEMA TOUS ECRANS, 14e Festival International du Film in Geneva Switzerland. Our piece won the Reflet d’Or of the best interactive multimedia fiction. The jury said that “The price is awarded to a piece of work that put the multimedia feature in the center of its conception and thus allows to develop a new narrative experience. This experience wanders from the inflexibility of  cinematic narration and of the interactive scenarii of video games.”

We are pretty chuffed and are trying to figure out how we can all get to Switzerland to use the €4000 in production services that comes with the prize.

‘88 Constellations’ will be included in the installations section of the 12th International Video Festival VIDEOMEDEJA in Novi Sad, Serbia from December 12 – 14th 2008. This is another festival that screened ‘A is for Apple’ in the past and it looks like a really good program with lots of experimental video.

I’m off to New York next week for an exhibition of ‘88 Constellations’ and ‘A is for Apple’ at the Pace University Digital Gallery. I will be talking on Thursday, November 13 at 6pm. I am showing my work with Michelle Gay who did her MFA years ago at NSCAD. New York should be a blast. Students from the Digital Projects class will be coming down for a class trip and we will be zipping around New York until Tuesday.
