Writeup for the August bang!.
bang! short film festival
GameCity was a pioneering, annual week-long festival of interactive entertainment based in UK. Taking place in a wide variety of locations across the city, it was about as many people as possible, being able to play in as many ways and places as possible. Essentially, GameCity is an interactive playground for all ages.
The event will ran during October half-term (25th-29th) 2006 and included debates, seminars, workshops and other activites as well as the screening.
Bang! hosted two screenings, one on Saturday night on 28th October and one on Sunday afternoon at The Broadway. We showed a selection of gaming themed short films from local and international directors including the fantastic "Comm Raid on the Potemkin" by Ireland's finest Enda Hughes, where old film footage meets video game technology. Hilarious rap boys 64k from Canada took us through the history of the machine age. Local Legends Simon Ellis and Shaun Mechen both supplied the screenings with lots of laughs and lasers.
Dan Tombs' masterpiece "b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'b'" shows what you can create visually when you deconstruct an old megadrive and bend its circuits plus many more brilliant films that celebrate games, gaming and repetitive strain injuries!
