The making of the first Ultra Wide Views Exhibition for Libre Graphics Meeting 2009 in Montréal, Canada. High resolution large format giclées; a high resolution 360° panoramic display projecting still images, 3D (anaglyph) panorama and movies with ambiophonic sound; an experimental projectors array.
Thanks to Yuval on this cool “making of video.” I really had some good talks with Yuval about making LGM2010 more sustainable and more focused on content rather than just tools, aka bikeshed making. He read over my review, and now please check out his much more complete review of LGM2009, including his todo for 2010:
To do for LGM2010
- Decide on the venue ASAP. This is the single most important issue on the critical path to leading to LGM2010. The discussion on the mailing list seems to have fade out?
- Reach out to the general public! Ginger Coons suggested tupperware parties? Let’s show schoolkids that they need not pirate software to be creative. Let’s share our creations with the general public. Let’s get the media buzz going. Concentrate a few speeches geared at the general public on the Saturday. Make the exhibition last longer than the conference, with the conference being its culminating point. Entice the general public to learn about free graphics.
- Keep the buzz going – my feeling is that there is not enough going on in between conferences. I’d like to see more activity on the mailing list. We need more fund raising in these difficult times.
