New film from the creator of this website

It’s not always “all LOUIE” from the folks at LOUIE LOUIE central. Nope, sometimes there’s other projects that have absolutely nothing to do with Richard Berry‘s immortal rock song, unless of course you use the “six degrees of Kevin Bacon” principle, which means, of course, that everything in the universe could be actually tied somehow to this very important song by some imaginative use of inter-connections that form the web of human experience.

No, I’ll save that theory for another blog entry. Or not. We’ll see.

Today, I wanted to talk about a new film I’ve been working on for the past 5 weeks. I recently collaborated with my old friend Alison Victor, a former rock and roll guitar player (The Guttersluts, the Gargoyles, the Angry Samoans, AC-DShe) who’s now an Emmy-winning film maker living in San Francisco. We just created a short film entitled “INNER SPACE: Genoa Remote Guidance System For the Blind” that will be shown as part of the Yuri’s Night Space Party at NASA Ames Laboratory in Mountain View, CA on April 12, 2008.

Inner Space- the film by Alison Victor & Eric Predoehl

INNER SPACE: Genoa Remote Guidance System For the Blind” is the story of Ed Gallagher, a blind man that uses space age technology to interact in a world of visual stimuli.

Ed Gallagher was a visual artist until he slowly lost his sight over 8 years. Inspired by space technology, Ed Gallagher developed the Genoa remote guidance system for the blind using wireless internet technology to communicate with a remote operator. Receiving clear commands from someone viewing Ed’s world through his head mounted web cam, Ed, as a blind man, is able to participate in every day tasks, such as shopping, sailing and riding a bicycle.

The musical score for this film was provided by Chuck Lindo, a super-talented man that has a band called The American Professionals, that happens to feature Klaus Flouride of the Dead Kennedys. Chris Cornell, a guy with a name of another rock star, did some audio post-production for us. Then, there’s Alison and me, doing the work of ten people with a minimal budget.

I’m very proud of the work we’ve done with this film, and I hope to see some of my friends come out to see this show at the Yuri’s Night celebration, which has been compared to a space-age Burning Man or a St. Paddy’s Day for astronauts.

Details about the Bay Area Yuri’s Night party can be found at YurisNightBayArea.net. The film will be shown at 6:30 pm, so don’t be late or you’ll miss it.

I’ll be wearing my Flash Gordon suit.

P.S. For what it’s worth, Alison did actually perform LOUIE LOUIE with the Guttersluts many years ago, but we’ll save that for another time….
