One great mobmov tonight!

Thanks all who came to tonight's showing of A Simple Curve. The movie was great, but the company was even better. We ate snacks under the stars, had an indulgently long intermission playing the Nintendo Wii, and I think I speak for all of us when I say we all had a memorable time. About a dozen cars and thirty people showed up. A great crowd for such an unknown film.

Thanks to Film Movement for providing another one of their great films! Everyone loved it!

And a very hearty thanks to the person who dropped a very large bill into the donation jar. I am still recovering from the shock and hoping that it wasn't actually a mistake where you intended to put in a one! Nevertheless, I thank you for your kindness and anonymous generosity. You've made my day!

Public Access Media: bring about change in public media

The Mobile Movie's goal is to provide an alternative path for film artists to release their films. Fruition of this goal means a world in which independent films, those which challenge our opinions and views, are given the same chance at the public stage as mainstream, corporate-backed pictures.

In this video, Tony Shawcross of Deproduction.org provides a compelling picture for how the public can take control of our media. Watch it now.

Up next: mobmov corporate?

It was bound to happen. People talked and things tipped. Last week I got about 50 e-mails from people looking to partner and sponsor the mobmov. I'm still sorting through them all, and am running at full speed to turn this into tried and true business. Everything will still be free, and it will still be easy to sign up to be a mobmov, but there will be a lot more money making opportunities, exciting new show options, and more for you. I'll keep all of you posted.

A great final show in Berkeley for me

That surely was a great final showing on Friday. Thanks so much for everyone who came. Video, games, everything was flawless!

I'll be heading to Boston/Cambridge next week, so no more shows in Berkeley from me until at least September. I probably will be doing shows in Cambridge though. There are talks to get other people involved in running the event here in Berkeley - if interested, please e-mail me. info AT mobmov.org

Again, thanks so much for making this event so great. I was and am, proud to be a part of it.

A fun bit of history

Unfortunately there are not any projectors that can do that.

I am interested in running a projector in my car off the battery. I have an
inverter rated at 400W. Do you carry any projectors that would be capable of this output?
