Was excited to see this new work by Aakash. We did an episode of Radar with him a few years back (see below). Love the way Aakash uses simple materials in very effective ways. For those in NYC, Aakash has a solo show running from Jan 13th – Feb 9th at Jonathan LeVine .
One of the largest gatherings for independent game developers is coming to NYC later this winter. Taking place at the Museum of the Moving Image February 16th & 17th, IndieCade is a must attend event for anyone interested in the art and craft of game design. This marks the first time that the event heads east as it is usually held on the west coast.
For those new to game design, IndieCade east will feature a special section called Game U.
From the IndieCade site
Game U is a special program from IndieCade that focuses on pulling back the curtain on the game development process, and the work that game designers do. Specially designed for a diverse audience from entertainment and media professionals who want to learn about the game development process to amateur game creators who are considering trying to become professional.
IndieCade’s Game U sessions will take place during IndieCade East (February 15 – 17, 2012, in New York City), and will cover an introduction to game development tools, processes, and roles, as well as opportunities to meet working professionals in the game industry.
Today we wrapped the first season of RADAR! Our final shoot was with Color Me Katie. Katie Sokoler is a street artist who believes that random acts of kindness can be infectious. She’s seen it first hand. After launching her blog last October she’s gained a global following, many of whom have been so inspired by her work that they’ve created their own.
Our final shoot day was spent placing shadows and thought bubbles throughout Brooklyn.
Favs of the day a Mexican Popeye in front of a laundromat and a poodle named “movie star” thinking about cats.
The day also marked a milestone for WBP – what started as an experiment almost 2 and half years ago has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last six months. RADAR marks a step in a new direction. One of which provides direct creative opportunities to the community that WBP servers. Finishing out the season with Katie was a great way to top things off.
Have you seen the Bambi Killers? A cross between Grindhouse, Switchblade Sisters, and a Kenneth Anger film – the Bambi Killers put on an electric performance. We recentaly shot an episode of RADAR with them.
