I’ve watched it many times and find it more beautiful with each repeat.

Real – Time Generated Dance

The next artsy – fartsy bit I borrowed from Fubiz

Real-Time-Generated-Dance7-640x360

It is “Apparition”, a collaborative project between director, choreographer and composer Klaus Obermaier

and Ars Electronica FutureLab,  a project that involves a dance with real time projection.

This one could have been truly awesome. With a more elaborate choreography and better music, it would have been mind-blowing.


The Mill at Calder’s End – A Ghost Story Puppet Film

In his Mill at the Calder’s End Kickstarter page, Kevin Mc Turk describes his project as    

“A gothic ghost story in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft that will be told with 30 inch tall bunraku puppets and old fashioned in-camera special effects. Featuring the voices of Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,X-Men:First Class) and horror legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday,The Pit and the Pendulum) , this film celebrates two of my great loves: the art of puppetry and gothic horror.”
