NODE08 Cinema – Extended Call

poster_17_300.jpgNODE08 Cinema – Forum For Digital Arts :: April 5 – 12, 2008 :: Extended Call for Submissions :: Deadline: March 16, 2008. Please send your submission to: node08 [at] :: NODE08 is part of the Luminale light art festival which takes place at the same time in Frankfurt. More than just the first large-scale vvvv user meeting, NODE08 joins people working across the disciplines of applied and artistic media in a week-long event.

The main NODE08 exhibition hall in the Diakoniekirche also features a large projection screen. We kindly ask you to submit generative work or videos only, that are in accordance with the festivals topics. An informal jury will select the pieces for the screening.

The rules: Videos should not exceed 12 minutes, maximum resolution is 1280×720 px, preferably encoded as Xvid avi. You may also send us a download link instead of physical storage media or autonomously running vvvv patches. Each feature will run for 12 min. If you decide to submit a patch, please download the development package here.

Your patch will run inside this environment under beta 14, please make sure it’s compatible and don’t forget to include all your media, models, shaders etc. and have them and your subpatches in one folder and as relative paths inside your patch plus a screenshot of how the output should look like (so we can see if everything works fine). Do test this before, because we won’t fix broken links inside your patch.

More about NODE08

1. WORKSHOPS: Over six days, the vvvv developers as well as a great part of the most distinguished and most obsessed vvvv users impart their methods and techniques in a string of workshops. From absolute beginner level (zero to “Wow!” in two days) to the very advanced ones, the workshop program is widely spread. Here are some highlights:

vvvv for Beginners
Lighting and Tracking Techniques
Shader Programming
Video Effects and Reactive Animation
vvvv Plugins
Microcontroller And Sensor Handling
Virtual Architecture and Installation Setup
vvvv Project Organisation
… and many more.

2. LECTURES: Along with the vvvv group (Sebastian Oschatz, Max Wolf, Joreg and Sebastian Gregor), a line of renowned speakers provide insights to their works and domains on April 8th 2008, moderated by Eno Henze at the Velvet Club (Weissfrauenstrasse 12-16, Frankfurt) — and take your questions and comments at the Forum Symposium. Speakers include:

Casey Reas
Herbert W. Franke

Paul Prudence
Verena Kuni
Mark Fornes & Skylar Tibbits

Berthold Scharrer
The lectures conclude with an audio-visual performance from: Paul Prudence

3. EXHIBITION:The bland facade just opposite the Forum base Velvet Club will be given a new life and look by the French collective Digital Slaves. The Diakonie Kirche (Weserstrasse 5, Frankfurt) is going to be the NODE08 Exhibition Hall. Here you can see works by Eno Henze, Martin Zeplichal, Phillip Steinweber & Adreas Koller, Benedikt Gross, Pedro Mari & Claudio Midolo, OMA International and many more. Other installtions by Pinar Yoldas, Jannis Kreft, Jens Fischer, Sebastian Pforr, Jennifer Schaper, Jan Snippen can be seen in the lower level of the Velvet Club (Weissfrauenstrasse 12-16, Frankfurt). During the second part of the Forum, the exhibits created during the workshops will be shown at the Cube, next to the Velvet Club. All locations will be open daily 5pm – midnight, admission is free of charge.

4. VVVVINISAGE: As it should be, we will celebrate the grande finissage – on Saturday April 12th, at the Velvet Club. At the controls will be our vvvv users onoxo (Zagreb), u7agel (Hamburg), Elektromeier (Switzerland), Desaxismundi (France), Catweasel (London), VA (SanchTV-France, Nushitzu-Berlin), Live: Melchior Productions (Cadeza, Berlin), Gaiser (M-nus/Detroit, USA), B-Film (Tonfilm-Amsterdam). DJ: Alex Flitsch (Connaisseur Recordings Frankfurt), Sylvie Marks (Bpitch Control, HAL 9000, Frankfurt)

5. EVERYTHING ELSE: Besides the fixed programme, there will be projections and working space for all NODE08 Members. You can spontaneously show your work, patch, talk and create the exhibit you always wanted to realize. Thanks to the hardware generously sponsored by Satis & Fy and Markus Berger (MSBERGER), we can provide you with projectors and canvas. We strongly recommend that you bring a laptop to NODE08 so you can work in the workshops and in the OpenLab.

6. ACCESS: NODE08 is not profit-oriented. However, participation in the workshops and lectures requires a ticket: this helps to pay for costs and expenses of the lecturers, artists, rentals, gear, etc. Relating to the licensing scheme of vvvv, we trust our guests to choose the right ticket scheme.

The available tickets are
Full week Pro-Pass (all included) EUR 444
Full week Fan-Pass (all included) EUR 111
3Day-Pass (April 5 – 7) EUR 55
2Day-Pass (April 9 – 10) EUR 55
2Day-Pass (April 11 – 12) EUR 55
Lecture-Pass (April 8) EUR 33
