Zoe Beloff

Saturday, 12 October 2002

Thursday and yes­ter­day, ex­per­i­men­tal film­maker Zoe Beloff was on cam­pus. On Thursday she pre­sented two 3-D film works and on fri­day she showed 2 of her dig­i­tal works. The 3-D films were a trip, i’ll tell you that. Not only were they in 3-D, which she jerry-rigged from parts scrounged from flea mar­kets, they were also avant-garde in con­tent which made them trippy ex­pe­ri­ences. the dig­i­tal works were just as in­ter­est­ing in a to­tally dif­fer­ent man­ner. they were like ‘choose-your-own-avant-garde-ad­ven­ture’ in­ter­ac­tive cdroms. fri­day evening i went over to my professor’s house for a party for Zoe. I was the youngest per­son there, but i’m al­ways com­fort­able around older folks. The kind of party it was, was the kind of party i like most. Lots of in­tel­lec­tual chat.

I also got the per­fect place scouted for my film shoot. turns out the guy who owns the place went to school with Syd Pollack and is go­ing to give me full run of the damn place. suh-wee
