[MISP] Fwd: ABQ Trolley Co. ribbon-cutting celebration this Friday night!

Here is some event info on a new company in town that Turri Productions is doing some work for. These two young guys' company is ABQ Trolley, a sight seeing trolley car that is pretty cool in its own right. These two guys, Jesse Herron and Mike Silva, have been working their butts off to get this thing up and running. This Friday night event will give everyone a chance to check the trolley out. They begin operations on the 5th of May. IF you can fit it into your schedule, go down and check them out. Also, check out their web site to get more details on what they have planned. Thanks and pass this on to some of your contacts.

[MISP] May 5th: Interactive multimedia theatrical performance!

Mark your calendars for the upcoming interactive multimedia theatrical performance!

AV LODGE PRESENTS:  FRUIT MACHINE
A Campy Media Performance

Tuesday May 5th, 7:00 PM
University of New Mexico
Rodey Theater

$7 general
$5 faculty and  seniors
$3 staff and students


The Electronic Arts program of the University of New Mexico's Department of Art & Art History will host a one-night only performance of Fruit Machine.  Created and performed by artists Hilary Harp and Suzie Silver, Fruit Machine is an hour-long live-video variety show in which performers use interactive props and costumes to control video and sound. The overall performance is more mutant musical or concert than play. As much emphasis is placed on sound as image, with props and costumes functioning as audio-visual instruments. Fruit Machine includes ten short acts:  five live sections and five pre-recorded "music videos." 

Inspired by a long tradition of camp aesthetics, especially Jack Smith's homemade participatory glamour and Leigh Bowery's extravagant perversity, Fruit  Machine brings together camp and digital performance. "Fruit Machine" was a name given to a Canadian device designed during the Cold War to ferret out homosexuals from the civil service and the military. The subjects were made to view pornography, and the device measured the pupils of the eyes, perspiration, and pulse for a supposed erotic response. Using Arduino micro- controllers, and Max/MSP/Jitter, Fruit Machine occupies a unique place at the juncture between technically sophisticated interactive media and a humble and carnivalesque aesthetics reminiscent of a folk ritual or a school play.  
 

About AV Lodge 
Collaborating since 2003, Hilary Harp and Suzie Silver have created a range of projects including objects, installations, videos and performances.  Drawn to exotica, science fiction and pre-digital special effects, they create d.i.y. spectacles by combining technical sophistication with humble materials. They have exhibited their objects and installations throughout the U.S. Their videos have screened all over the world.  The Video Data Bank distributes their videos, Nebula, Robot Love and Eric Moe's Idyll.  They have performed their live media variety show "Fruit Machine" in a number of venues nationally including Transformer Gallery, Washington DC; Around the Coyote Festival, Chicago, IL; the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and the Phoenix Fringe Festival.  Harp is Assistant Professor of Sculpture at Arizona State University.  Silver is Associate Professor in Electronic and Time Based Art in the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University.

[MISP] Action Required - We Can Make A Difference!

Rep. Rodefer, a good friend of the motion picture and arts business in general is pushing to have a committee where we are likely to have if not a sympathetic ear at least a fair hearing. Bills concerning film would hopefully be referred to this committee in addition to others. Here is what I need from you, and I also need you to pass this on to anyone you know in the business;

 

RESPECTFUL emails asking the House members to consider this committee. Don't make it just about film, point out that the arts community is a huge economic driver for New Mexico employing tens of thousands and bringing literally millions of tourists. Concentrate your arguments on the arts and not the economic benefits but it doesn't do any harm to mention that you make your living in this arena. You don't have to make it too long; they'll get the point pretty quickly. I'm particularly looking for people such as vendors, people working in other artistic mediums, and just the general public who are interested. Thanks and contact me with any questions at ba480@hotmail.com

Creation of the Film, Art and Culture Committee of the New Mexico Legislature

 

 

The Interim Film, Art and Culture Committee, initiated by Representative Benjamin Rodefer, requires final approval by Legislative Council (members below, with their contact information from the legislative website).  They meet Thursday morning May 7 to determine whether this committee actually comes into existence.  Spread the word and contact each of these people to let them know how absolutely vital it is to the State of New Mexico and its economic future that we get this committee up and running ASAP.

Re: [MISP] Online teaching equipment and software

I second this - if you're not looking for interactivity. I have used ScreenFlow for presentations, and video - and it's great. Easy to use, and cheap. But if you need interactivity, ability to build tests, or SCORM compliance, you'll need something more along the lines of Captivate.

good luck!

- if you are doing recorded sessions, check out Adobe Captivate.

I've recently become a fan of ScreenFlow (http://www.telestream.net/screen-flow/overview.htm). It captures both your screen and a DV camera input (as well as computer plus external audio input) at the same time, and provides a simple editing engine that includes some cool tricks with the cursor (which can be added after the fact), text, etc. And it's cheap at $99 (occasionally $79 on sale), compared to Captivate's $799 list (~$250 educational pricing). It's a version 1.x, so it has some limitations and bugs, but I've found it has made me more efficient while also raising the production value of my videos.

San Juan College uses Angel with great success-- and several of the new
programs are using "micro lectures"--short, stripped down lectures
accompanied by intensive, rigorous, learning-driven assignments. See the
article and a sample at the Chronicle for March 6:

Apple's Garageband (either comes with the Mac OS or with iLife - can't
remember which) is handy for creating multi-media podcasts that can
then be folded into an online distance learning program (CNM and I
believe UNM both use ye old standby WebCT - now Blackboard as their
basic platform). Easy to use and cheap or free for Mac people.
Downside - not available for PC.

San Juan College uses Angel with great success-- and several of the new programs are using "micro lectures"--short, stripped down lectures accompanied by intensive, rigorous, learning-driven assignments. See the article and a sample at the Chronicle for March 6:

Apple's Garageband (either comes with the Mac OS or with iLife - can't
remember which) is handy for creating multi-media podcasts that can
then be folded into an online distance learning program (CNM and I
believe UNM both use ye old standby WebCT - now Blackboard as their
basic platform). Easy to use and cheap or free for Mac people.
Downside - not available for PC.
