RAW DAY videos are now up at rawtrust.com
Andrew J. O'Keefe has been toiling away with digital lasagna and has produced a delicious series of videos that feature all the presenters at RAW DAY 2017.
There are 7 videos of the presentations, plus two additional short videos I’ll describe in a moment. I have to give a thanks to Brummbaer for letting us use his amazing fractal video animations for the opening and closing credit scenes. He didn’t actually give us permission, mostly because he took the liberty of passing away last year. We were close friends, however, and over the years we regularly collaborated on projects, freely giving our work to each other. In any case, I asked his partner Robin for permission, and she was thrilled to let us have a choice of videos to use. She added that she thought Brumm would also be delighted. Brummbaer was an amazingly talented artist. Click here to see some of his art. He was also a close friend of Tim Leary’s. They were Sunday afternoon tripping buddies in LA for a period of time. He had some stellar stories. I miss that guy, but it's wonderful to see his beautiful artwork helping Bob's lasagna take flight.
As for the other two videos, Andrew did a handful of interviews during the breaks in the program. He didn't really have the time to do that, but he's ambitious. Still, he ended up with only interviewing R.U. Sirius, Branka Tesla and me. Andrew and I talked about how it wasn’t a lot of material to work with, only three interviews, but I got a brainstorm at one point and started cutting the three interviews up into what I think is a nice salad. A good side dish for the lasagna (sorry). It became a 4 minute video called “Multiple Realities.”
The other short video is a 6 minute preview for the 7 main videos. You've maybe seen it already online. It's a sweet short snapshot of the day.
Thanks also to DJ Greg Wilson for letting us use some of the music he mixed on the day of the event. You can find his RAW DAY mix on his SoundCloud page.
