Evil Of Dracula

Evil Of Dracula

1997 / 2 min

“A Hypno-Physycho-Vampiric spazzm of fanged advertisements with money-hungry, blood-thirsty grins. This animated film in FANGTASTIC color is enough to cause a line-up at your local Blood Bank. Made with home-spun special effects of funnel-vision and hand-colored film. With a Blood Draining soundtrack by the legendary Lyrical Monster Song Master Jad Fair and musical madman Jason Willett. Originally super-8.”

Music From A Dry Cleaner by Diego Stocco

Almost everyday, on my way to a local bakery, I walk in front of a dry cleaners. 
When they have the front door open, I hear a lot of interesting sounds coming from their work equipment. Eventually, the different mechanical and steam sounds sparked something in my mind, so one day I asked the owners if I could record a piece of music by using their machines as musical instruments.

I used a puff iron, press and dry cleaning machines, a washer, clothes hangers, and a bucket full of soap. 

The bass and lead sounds were created from the buzzing tones coming from the conduits and engines. 

There are no additional sounds from any traditional or electronic instruments. Enjoy!

First Digital 3D Rendered Film (1972)

It was created in 1972 by Ed Catmull (the founder of Pixar) and Fred Parke with a little help from my dad. I also think that this is the only digital copy of it.

The best part of this film is not even the 3D rendering itself, but the outtakes and “making of” footage that has been interwoven throughout, including footage of a plaster replica of Ed’s hand onto which he is meticulously mapping the polygon vertices that make up the three dimensional model (around 1:30). That’s really remarkable. The math that we take for granted for rendering 3D was being invented, real time, to create this video. (Ed’s credited for having working out that math to handle things like texture mapping, 3D anti-aliasing and z-buffering.)
