Imaging Festival - Saturday 17th, anyone coming along
« on: November 13, 2007, 04:51:58 AM »
Sorry to jump on just to tell you about this but this weekend sees the Imaging Festival taking place at the Wyvern Theatre...

Not sure how many people know about it and that is it happening....there is going to be a shop in the Brunel Plaza from Thursday where we will be showcasing some things you can see on Saturday.

Saturday 17 November 2007 - 11am till 10.30pm

There is going to be loads of things going on and even the screening of the Zombie film and a great visual showcase I am the Mighty Jungulator (Matthew who is behind it has created his own bit of software that puts visuals to sound, going to be stunning) in the evening:

Everything is FREE well except one of the workshops but with the above, the preloader film festival and loads of cool stuff to get involved in all day is going to be busy busy busy....pop along if any of you have time.

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it - [attributed to] Voltaire... 'Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessita' - William of Occam.... 'You have a right to feel offended, but just cos you are offended doesn't mean you are right'
