Interactive comedy: 'The Act'

Recently I stumbled upon a recent example of an interactive video. The Act was supposed to be an arcade game, but (sadly) is unreleased. The gameplay basically consists of turning a knob (!) to influence what happens in a scene. The game features hand-drawn art by former Disney animators.

Anyway, you can view an example below:

This is the video I was talking about earlier today:

The software I was trying to explain is Anime Studio Pro (how could I forget ;)
If you like you can also check out the other videos from Utrecht School of the Arts / Art, Media & Technology.

Interactive Video of a(-) typical Design Process / Brain Dump

Hey all,

It might well be the case that I will be there tomorrow, at MMA, due to some rescheduling of the appointment I had.

I just got to thinking about the suggestion AE made again, about creating an interactive video as a "Making of...". If I will be able to pick up a camera somewhere, and find some spare time, I'd like to try and make a "making of" the Broad Dikes videoclip (and just for you leechers, this has nothing to do with interaction between females).

Let's see what Friday will bring, as PV will brief us on an illustration and possibly animation job, as to know if I will have some time to work on the above.

Feeling the need to clear my head of all the different, but fun, stuff I am involved in, I might start posting on the blog more often. Lots of "if..."'s and "might..."'s!

Wii mote as MIDI controller/music interface

Today I stumbled upon an article in Shook magazine that briefly mentioned the wii mote as a music software controller. Apparently the wii mote is an excellent way to control music software. I thought this might be interesting for the people experimenting with the wii mote at the VU. There are many sources available but here are some of the ones I found interesting:

Osculator + Kyma (background info here)
Osculator wii mote manual
Ableton Live + wii mote (there are many youtube videos actually about this subject)
