I was chatting online (of course) with filmmaker/lecturer/webgeek Lance Weiler today (about how his SXSW 2007 panel “Building an Online Fanbase” is available now as an MP3 to download), when he told me that he’s presenting his film Head Trauma as a multimedia performance at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image. This is the kind of event that makes me wish I lived in New York, so for those of you who do, try to check it out on Saturday, July 14. The museum’s Web site describes it as:
In this innovative and playfully unsettling interactive multimedia event, the story of a drifter who returns to his grandmother’s abandoned house is brought to life in a collision of movies, music, gaming, and theatrics. Characters emerge from the audience, the DJ provides a live soundtrack, and your mobile phone becomes a cinematic gaming device. Followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.
