vvvv workshop at Gray AreaMarch 17, 2016 posted by: joreg
helo bayarea people,
i’m coming to the beautiful Gray Area in april to host a vvvv workshop on the 11th, 13th and 15th from 6pm to 9pm each day. i am not sure yet how to target the workshop thats why i am hoping to get feedback from some of you who might be interested to join. shall we rather do a beginners course or focus on a specific topic? projection mapping? dx11? you name it and i’ll do my best to teach you all i know about it. or do we even get enough people interested a VL workshop?
please make yourself heard in the comments and pass this link on to potentially interested people.
also i’m going to speak at the http://grayareafestival.io and do a 3h introductory workshop to vvvv there. i’ll announce that in an extra post once their website is up with all the info.
verymuch looking forward to this, joreg.

I grew up in Bay area, but for the past decade I’m in the UK ’the truly gray area'
One more interesting tip, I don’t know if you heard of CNMAT http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/ https://goo.gl/QuNTFU
CNMAT, Similar to IRCAM in Paris, are the pioneers of sound synthesis (early MAX/MSP stuff, also they invented OSC and many more) I studied there for a while in late 90s and their location is in an awesome villa near the university. Occasionally they have small venue concerts and interesting lectures http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/events. I know the director Prof. Edmund Campion, depending on your schedule if you want to do another mini vvvv workshop in the UCB setting, as CNMAT would be a great venue for it; Contact Ed Campion http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/people/edmund_campion (he was my supervisor over 10 years ago, you can tell him amir soltani suggested it) If tonfilm is going with you guys, you have to visit CNMAT if you can :)
I love SF Bay Area, there is so much to do, Check out the free classified ad paper call East Bay Express for all the cool clubs and events listings. Also if you call KALX station (they are in the basement of Barrows Hall, UCB) and give the detail of your workshops they could announce it on the FM radio, perhaps even have a live interview about vvvv!
Also try to get in at Instructables/Autodesk’s Pier9. Pretty cool space.
Artists there might be interested in participiating in your workshop. Just sayin'
