Acela HDADD Xperiment
In January, I had the good fortune of working out some new creative ideas with Xav Perkins, aka eXceeda. We had a few weeks to develop a few concepts, one of which is the above high speed train video. Another is the Bugs Bunny edit which I have put on HDADD.
This train footage is a prototype for an installation piece we are developing – and which I think will be beautiful.
It’s a real pleasure working with Xavier. He’s an amazing editor and has boundless creative energy.
Big thanks from Gardner, Xavier, and myself to everyone at the Big Chill for making this a great show, including MC Rebbe, Lisa Loco, Simon from Pioneer, Hexstatic, Coldcut, eXceeda, DJ Tom Laroc, Addictive TV, and the production crew at the Big Chill. Oh, and special big thanks to the airline pilots that came in during the airplanes piece. Wow.
Below are some pics from the show, as well as some render tests from the material which I presented.
The highlight of the night for me was when I looked to my right and there was Matt Black cutting up some of Xav’s cartoon set. That really made my day – thanks, Matt. Much love.

Special thanks to Stuart from Hexstatic, Victoria and all the folks at Big Chill, Paul and Todd Treanor from Treanor Bothers Animation, David Last, Aerostatic, Glenn French, Michael Oatman and Mark Blank.
If you happen to be in the UK, stop on by. This promises to be an exciting new show.
I’ll also be doing a book signing on Sunday the 6th at 5pm, so drop in to say hi.

We had a great time, and were glad to meet so many super-xlnt people.
Addictive TV keeps getting better and better. If you get a chance to see one of their shows, do it! You wont regret it. Their stuff looked monumental on the massive Imax screen, and they played an amazing new remix of Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again”. I think this one could be a big hit.
I also got to see two killer sets from Exceeda. I had never seen their set before. Fantastic stuff. Xavier rocked the house with his Phantom of Optronica set.
Peter Greenaway performed a spectacular live mix of his films in the Imax theatre.
So, all in all, and wonderful experience.
Post and Kane in 3D. If you get very close to the monitor and stare at this picture for a long time, you will get an interesting effect.
