Terminator Robot Film Scans

Now here’s an interesting item…

This quicktime movie is made from the original film scans of the Terminator robot which we shot to make a hologram for the Terminator Boxed Set in 1992. We shot one of the life sized robot models from the movie on 35 mm film using a modified Mitchell 35mm camera, and had the film scanned to tape at GW Hannaway and Associates in Boulder, Colorado. Anyways, these are the film originals, cropped and scaled for the web.


If the movie doesn’t display above, you can see the source movie here.

ChatterValve

From 1998-2000, we ran a weekly live call in show on RadioValve called “ChatterValve”. Pretty cool, considering it was ’98. We had a live webcam, live text chat, and live phone-ins. Hosted by Clark ov Saturn. Special guest appearances by Trace Reddell.

Here’s an interesting article from the Boulder Daily Camera about RadioValve: Local radio station uses fiber-optics instead of FM waves. Sounds pretty futuristic to me …

And I was always happy to have the loudest stream on the internet.

Holography

From 1987 through 1995, I designed many comercial holograms. These were mostly embossed foil, although a few were photopolymer, like this Terminator Boxed Set.

I had the good fortune to work with Craig Newswanger at Applied Holographics on many of these projects.

The “Alias – More than teapots” hologram was made for Siggraph 89. This was one of the first 3D rendered holograms ever made.

The work was mostly done on SGI Personal Iris PI-20 computers running Alias 2.0, which was very high tech for the time.

I have lots of these holograms, and they are pretty hard to photograph. Here are a few samples.

WGBH Online

Two sets of websites I created for WGBH Boston.

The first is a set of updated media players from 2006. This is an interesting design in that it is completely modular and templated. All content is syndicated as XML and transformed for display via php and xslt.

The second, from 2000, is the WGBH Forum Network, an online video lecture website, and the WGBH Radio website.

Fallen Angels, 1995

Silly image from a series of posters, pads, and cards which I created for Portal Publications in 1995. I always liked this image. It was a good seller, too.

In 1998 I met David Fodel aka devslashnull, and Brian Comerford aka E23, who had created RadioValve.com, one of the first internet radio stations. I joined the RadioValve team as partner in 1999.

The image above is a player which I designed for one of the shows in 2000.

Radiovalve was featured in the Web Radio Book as well as a host of other publications. You can still listen to it online.

There are lots of interesting features on the site including interviews with Plaid, Terrence McKenna, Whitley Streiber, Luke Vibert, and Jonah Sharp

General Motors EV-1

In 1996, I was hired to photograph in QuickTime VR the General Motors EV1 Electric Vehicle for gmev.com, and it remained online until a few months ago (2006), when a less than positive film about the EV1 was released. I haven’t seen the film, so I can’t comment.

I also had the good fortune to drive the vehicle. The pickup was amazing, and it was utterly silent. Awesome ride.

Below are links to the QuickTime VR movies of the EV1 which I created. I have the source files, film, and video from the shoot, so someday I may create a higher resolution version of this project.

On a geek note, the QuickTime VR files for this project were assembled into a standalone application which was authored with mTropolis. Unfortunately, the presentation will no longer run on a modern Mac or PC (gotta love progress). So most of the “coolness” for that project is gone forever. But the images and animations still exist…
