PFC, tomorrow

From: David
Sent on: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 11:28 AM


this is to remind everyone that there is a PFC meetup tomorrow, if you have forgotten or not.

I have a bit of a bottleneck, and won't get there until 830pm. So I won't be there to introduce or bother people at the beginning, but that certainly won't stop people from talking and meeting. If you are a long-timer, please introduce yourself to the new people, and introduce them to others as well.

This week we are going to have a short screening, which obviously will start a bit late... Matthew Thornton is going to present his work as the founder and organizer of Languagecraft [], a Youtube channel he founded last year which now has 25000 members, and more than 3 million views so far.

As I understand, Languagecraft is based on collaborative modding of the Minecraft gaming environment... using what appears to be a relatively recent scripting interface, they are able to automate the game [which is both standalone, and online] to create, e.g. time lapse videos showing the group construction of what can be immense architectural sites.... sunsets and sunrises included.

You may think this has nothing to do with what you do, but remember that fan-modding isn't all that far away from crowdfunding, and is in addition the best example of online collaborative filmmaking. And games aren't your thing, well, I frankly don't think there is so much different between the inside of your camera and the inside of a computer. Video is just something inside a computer that makes it to a screen, whether it comes from a lens or a series of encoded words.

To abstract for you? Well,Mattew is going to talk about how Youtube works, and how to build an audience.

A little self-promotion here... I've been working with online 3d for a longtime... my Waxweb project in fact had the first database-driven online 3d [vrml] back in 1995, in the day when you had to look at such things with an SGI Indie... I think it is pretty neat and useful that this is such a normal and popular thing to do now.

So show up, or, you won't be there,
