If we may put aside the royal "we" for a moment and briefly, shamelessly plug a personal project…
Friends of mine have finished up the second issue of their free DVD magazine, Chaise. Chaise Two is a collection of kickass media on a DVD and CD: among the offerings are two short films, including Elena Elmoznino’s 2004 Slamdance Best Short prize-winner "Freestyle"; all kinds of animation; experimental video; and all other kinds of wonderful interactive goodies, including printable mail art. There’s a trailer, and instructions on how to get your free copy here.
I merely wrote the copy for the booklet/website, so my own contribution to the project is rather paltry, which also means I don’t feel dirty being so shamelessly gushy about this – I’m endlessly impressed by everything about what’s been done. Except that godawful copy. The release party in Brooklyn this Friday, so if you’re in the area, stop on by and say hi, I may even be manning the door.
