Läuft ja wie am Schnürchen…
Zach und Theo planen zusammen eine interessante Perfomance – für die OFFF, Ende nächster Woche in Barcelona. Hierfür suchen sie noch eifrig Menschen die mitmachen wollen.
I am writing to ask you for help – it should be really fun and not take you too long, so think about it as a good break for your day or weekend. & please also forward this to anyone who you think might be interested !
Next week, I am making a performance at the OFFF festival along withmy good friend Theo Watson. The idea of the performance is really quite simple — the story of a never ending line — and the performance will be made up of both videos as well as live material, and synthesized graphics.
we are asking you, with your awesome brains and wicked fast design skills, to send us videos in your own style, of a line being drawn from one side of the screen to another. It can be animated, live video, computer generated, or some other way we can’t even think of yet.
We would love to get videos from you to use in our performance. The more imaginative the better! All the videos used will be credited at the end of the performance so it will be a great chance to show what you can do with a line and 5 seconds of time. Multiple submissions are encouraged!
1: The line should start off screen, enter on one side and leave on another.
(doesn’t have to be right to left, can be any side to any side,
including leaving on the same side the line started on).
2: The line should have the effect of being drawn, not moved across the
screen. See examples bellow.
3: Once a part of a line is drawn it should not move too much, the
animation should be the effect of drawing the line (as in the good
4. The video doesn’t necessarily have to be the drawing of a line
(although most of what we are working with is), but it can also be
something moving along a very clear path. The idea should be about
going from point a to point b.
5. Both sound or silent is ok.
6: Videos should be 3 – 8 seconds long, 640 480 quicktime format.
(320×240 also ok)
7: Videos should be submitted to zlieb AT parsons.edu or
theo AT muonics.net (if under 10MB) or posted online for download.
8: we need them by tuesday 8th of May.
We hope you enjoy this challenge, and would like to take part in our
project. Thanks and have fun!
