xoxofest:

On Saturday night at XOXO, starting at 7pm until 1am, we’re bringing a selection of six uniquely independent feature-length films and short videos to the top floor of the YU Contemporary.

Like with XOXO Music, Tabletop and Arcade, nearly all the creators of these independent works will be at XOXO…

Less than two weeks away. Can’t believe I’m on the same bill as these people!

Supercut panel at the Museum of the Moving Image
Next Friday, September 6th in Astoria, NY you can see me talking about supercuts with Rich Juzwiak and Jason Eppink. Jason curated the Cut Up exhibition which has now been extended to October 15th. Rich, who I last met at ROFLCon, has been busy at Gawker. Here’s a supercut he made of people saying “twerk” on the news last week.
We’ll be showing some videos and talking about our work. I should have something new to show too. Admission is free. Tell your New York friends!

GIF is from Marisa Brown’s section of this student animated version of Let’s Enhance which I still can’t believe exists.

Let’s Enhance at the Museum of the Moving Image!
A few weeks ago, I was asked by Jason Eppink at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York if he could include my Let’s Enhance supercut in their remix exhibition - Cut Up - which opens tomorrow.
This seemed like a good opportunity to revisit this video so I ENHANCED it! Using the best quality source material I could find (at least dvd quality, 1080p where possible) I have remastered the video. This is something several YouTube commenters have (maybe jokingly) requested.
I also worked a little on the sound, isolating dialogue tracks from surround audio rips. Originally the music level was turned up too high to mask any other background music. Other than this, the resolution upgrade, a change from 29.97fps to 24fps and some tv station “bug” removals, the video is the same one that somehow got over 2 million views on YouTube. Sorry, Super Troopers fans.
I’ll upload it soon. For now the only place you can see it is Astoria, NY. Maybe I’ll see you there!
More exciting news soon…
UPDATE: Here it is. Vimeo / YouTube

I’m about a year late with this but a few people asked where some of these tumbleweeds came from so I finally added the sources as closed captions on YouTube. Maybe you missed this supercut last time around so here it is again. 

Music is by Joel Robson. It was commissioned by the Columbus Museum of ArtThe titles are in Bookman Old Style (font joke!).

Joel and I are working on a new video which I’m pretty excited about. I could still use a little more help with it

I made a quick mini sequel to this stupid supercut about New Super Mario Brothers 2. This is mostly so I could read more of YouTube’s bizarre auto-transcription poetry:

falling klein wine point clean risk for a twenty point lead clean clean clean

clean it for you point two million collegeboard corridor and controlling

collins controlling scoring conclude greatest ninety nine twenty one point

one point one point one point screen for you

Percussive Maintenance (test).

While collecting clips for a supercut video I had this idea for a possible art installation piece.

Here I’m using the knockAge script piped into mplayer. Eventually, different knocking sequences could trigger specific clips but right now it’s just stepping through a playlist.

Please let me know if you have other examples of percussive maintenance from film, tv and games. TV Tropes has a pretty good list but I’m sure there are many more clips out there.

I’d also be interested in opportunities for exhibiting something like this.
