Opticlash 2 Tonight @ CHAC

posted by on June 13 at 16:39 PM

Tonight I’m one of the judges for Opticlash, the VJ Battle in Seattle. I’ve been promised that it’s way more entertaining than either competing home videos or dueling screen savers, but this will be my first time at the event, so I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow. Should be a good time, so come on down.

OPTICLASH 2 VJ BATTLE

WED., June 13TH, 2007
6pm – 10pm
@ Capitol Hill Arts Center

+ Anywhere SIFF Tickets are sold

Punch Drunk Productions, 4Culture, Seattle Foundry, Art Patch, and The Stranger proudly present part of the 2007 Seattle International Film Festival: Opticlash 2, the 2nd annual VJ Battle in Seattle. Similar to a DJ battle, contestants pit their live performance prowess against one another - instead of scratching records and mixing music, they mix video images on two huge screens. A DJ plays music to which the VJs sculpt their video art, all in real-time. The winner, selected by a panel of local judges, takes home a $1000 Edirol V-4 video mixer for the grand prize. A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to Seattle-based nonprofit ReelGrrls: Empowering girls through media production.
