My First Machinima

Just made a few minutes ago.

Untitled (Mill Ave.)

Untitled (Merritt Island Causeway)

jonCates Teaches Machinima

jonCates will be teaching a class on machinima this next semester at SAIC.

jonCates - Assistant Professor
Film, Video and New Media
FVNM 4866 9 AM - 4 PM TH
FALL 2005
Machinima literally combines "machine" and "cinema" using computer-based games to develop film and media art. Machinima views video games and game culture as New Media. Video game engines become artistic toolsets and authoring systems allowing artists to use the underlying code structures to create their own media artworks. Students play video games, learn to render artworks in realtime with low cost, commercially available game engines and free and open source software systems, discuss online distribution, and screen machinima artworks. Prerequisite: FVNM 2100

Serendipitous Searching Thesis

"The thesis focuses on what is termed serendipitous searching – i.e. an activity of open browsing for anything that awakens the person’s interest. That means that the people in the study are not just looking for certain things – they are also seeking to come to terms with what they are actually looking for."

The Congress Hotel here in Chicago. It was one of the strangest places I have been in a long time. Everything seemed like it was just thrown together over 100 years. Like a huge century-long mash-up.
