Vote Obama!

[flv:/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/ObamaWideScreen.flv 550 412]

I have been excited about Obama since his speech at the DNC in 2004 and said then if he ever ran for any office I could vote for, I would support him. So here we are in 2008 and I am still excited about it and him and his potential for what he could do for this country. For the 1st time in my life, I have donated to a presidential campaign (and a number of times at that), partly because I am in a place financially where I can afford to do that, but mostly because I feel very strong about this.

So anyhow, I made this lil motion piece ages ago and just slapped it in my reel and never did anything with it. If anyone wants a quicktime of it or anything, just email me on the comments page and I’ll get it to you.

And although I know no one really reads this blog who doesn’t know me, I would like to ask and urge people to do what you can to help get this man into the White House. Donate, make phones calls, register people to vote, talk to your parents and explain to them why we don’t need another crotchety old white man running this country for a change.

Most of all, VOTE DAMMIT!

Live digital painting

Recently I attended a great party with a whole host of good visuals. For most of the night, my pal Satsi was on the beamers. As always he did great stuff.

I also had the pleasure of meeting and watching DangerMarc, a live digital painter. He uses a gigantic Wacom tablet (more like a table), a laptop and Corel Painter. It is really cool watching him create in a live setting and being immersed in the things that are influencing him, be it the people, the music, the lighting, the mood, the space itself.

Marc is presently selling a print he made of Obama, with the purpose of selling enough of them to donate the max amount of money one person can donate to his campaign, which is $2300 I think.

It is a very clever idea. I really love that so many artists and regular people are coming together to help get Barack Obama into the White House, and are joining the political process, many for the first time.
