An enthusiastic audience braved a blizzard to come out and see the screening of work by Vancouver artist Flick Harrison. This even was the first in a series of exchanges between artists working in communities at oppostite ends of the country. Shortly after the Black Bag Media Collective screened Flick’s work the Something Collective in Vancouver screened Liz Solo’s work. After each screening the artists gave a Q and A via Skype.
A favorite of the night was “War Torn Man” – a music video for the song by Rodney Decroo. Flick explained afterwards that many of the effects are hand drawn in Photoshop.
Here are a couple of pics of Flick’s Skype chat. With some tech minded people present the discussion settled on technical aspects, including changes to Final Cut Pro and a discussion of whether the new FCP interface is more accessible or amounts to a dumbing down of the program.
