One from the Sterilite vaults

Was going through some storage containers, and found some old pictures from the late 1990s, including this one of a Skytouch public satellite phone. I believe I took it with a disposable 35mm camera in New Hampshire, around October, 1999. This might have been on the top of Mt. Washington, or at the Cog Railway Base Camp, but I don’t recall exactly.

Cyberpunk Film Festival

One of my fellow makers/artists from my home region, Sophi Kravitz, put out a call last week for participants to do a quick short video for her team’s entry into HOPE 2020’s Cyberpunk Film Festival. Never did a film before, so I cleaned up the workbench to make it a presentable background, put on a “costume”, and said a few words they gave me in front of my phone’s camera.

We didn’t win, but it was still pretty fun.
