And finally, here are a couple of politically-minded video projects I did back in college. The first was railing against Politically Correctness. It was a pretentious reaction to the administration taking umbrage to satirical banner some friends had put up lampooning the student elections.

“War Games” is the piece I’m most proud of. It wasn’t a statement against the first Gulf War itself, instead a commentary of the media saturation and the way it was being marketed.

1991 Video Project – Timing X   January 21st, 2014

This was another old video project, one that was most just an experiment. I really dug the effects of video feedback when you point the camera at a television it’s connected to, so I threw together this music video of sorts.

May cause seizures.

1991 Video Project – Sanctuary   January 21st, 2014

I’m watching some old video art projects from back in college, half a lifetime ago. This was one of the early ones, so it’s pretty rough.

It’s pretentious and earnest and full of energy. I miss that creative overdrive. For all its flaws and how dorky I was back then, this made me smile as often as it made me cringe.

2013 Daily Montage Video   January 15th, 2014

I want to get back into video editing. For now though, I’m using the 1 Second Everyday app to make a daily video montage. Here’s the (sometimes) thrilling video from 2013.

Warning: contains gratuitous cat footage.

Cat Slideshow   April 25th, 2010

Created 04/15/08

I was inspired to do something goofy for a belated birthday gag for my friend Matt, so this afternoon I made a video slide-show of all the cat photos I have saved to my hard drive.

Damn 635 images take a long time to display, 10:35 to be precise. On one hand it demonstrates my obsessive collecting behavior, but on the other hand pictures of cats are always nice. Happy cat viewing folks, enjoy it or not.

The video was made with a fun little shareware application, the Slide Show Movie Maker.

I was hoping to get a sound file of the original old-timey “Alley Cat” song for the project, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I did find this neat song of the same name by musician Jason Sturges, which has a nice jazzy beat.
