The newest phenomenon in film is transmedia or interactive film. According to Jose Jacho, founder and creative producer at Indie Film Club Miami, transmedia includes using various forms of media by different artists to complete a story.
For instance, you can watch a movie and then download an app or video on your phone later to see the end of the story. The idea is to get everyone involved. Someone can write a poem about the movie and post it on a blog or write a song or make a painting.
Jose, along with Diliana Alexander, the executive director of FilmGate, brought this new form of storytelling to the southeastern seas. Here’s a look at what you may have missed…
As I warmly recall the wild summer nights that I first hit the scene, when Jennys Was A Friend of Mine and together we discovered on the dance floor the kind of magic that took us to Such Great Heights and back again; I realize that no matter what the current trend is, Miami needs an indie dance party!
The District may not be around anymore but luckily The Vagabond has “reloaded” their weekly Friday party with an arsenal of indie dance magic; guaranteed to bring back that Electric Feel and give the Young FolkWhat You Want and the rest of us what we need – indie rock, dirty disco, house, and electro beats!
Now that we’ve caught our breath, we put together a Miami Art Week 2012 Retrospective - a series of photos and galleries that capture some of our favorite events and artworks.
This collection of photographs only captures a small fragment of what went down in Miami the first week of December. But hey, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s a short story…enjoy!
Our friend and loyal contributor, Rod Deal, has been selected to showcase his artwork as The Vagabond’s ‘Artist of the Month’ for the December Art Basel Edition. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, December 8th and will feature the musical stylings of French Express.
In terms of party vibes, this should be one of the hottest openings of the week and knowing Rod Deal’s keen eye, the artwork will embody its musical essence.
