Design Oppurtunities: Dallas Video Fest


A contest for everybody with a hankering to see their design displayed on the backs of others.  It is in celebration of VideoFest 25 and crossing the creative aspects of film/media/art design into something funky-fresh.  A winning design will be selected`by an esteemed group of judges (to be named) on August 5th and will be available in-festival at the DMA.

There are a few must-haves:  1) 25th Annual Dallas VideoFest, at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), Sept 27-30th 2012  2) Primary colors red/white/black (others secondary)   3) VideoFest 25 mascot – Video Guy can be included, yet not mandatory.  Submission deadline:  July 31, 2012 Midnight CST. 

They will help us to support VideoFest and continue our vision of creating an engaging community event that supports the film-making and creative media achievements of others leading the way to create a dynamic industry that Dallas can be a part of.  We want to continue to offer a film festival with a variety of perspectives for a broad and diverse audience. In exchange for their contribution they are being offered: 20 t-shirts, pass to festival, and a videotaped or written interview and photos of their design featured on the VAD website.

The Domino Starry Night


Nothing says determination more than a man who want to recreate Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night from 7,000 dominos. Nothing more than a second attempt that takes about 11 hours total to build. Domino artist, Flippycat, who has done a similar effect to the Mona Lisa, created his very own Vincent van Dominogh, knocking dominoes over to create the famed painting, Starry Night. Amazing, a tad for the sake of it, and amazing all over again. (from juxtapoz.com)

Exhibition Oppurtunity: The Art of Instagram, deadline July 5th

“The Art of Instagram” is a featured exhibit at the New Media Festival Los Angeles in conjunction with the Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles (DFFLA) and hosted at Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA). LACDA will be the Official Cinema Lounge for the DFFLA and hosting events drawing internationally recognized film and broadcast professionals, festival producers, actors, producers, media curators and festival goers where the work will be on view for potential connections and sales. (from lacda.org)

The deadline for the exhibit is Thursday July 5th, which is soon, but you can submit everything online. It costs money to submit I assume, which is kind of a drag. But it is worth if you are starting to get your work out there and want to build your exhibition record.
