VJ loops for your use released under BSD type license.
video clips can be used in any VJ program to add an
old-skool analogue flavour to your set, or if you're
desperate for VJ-formatted content to play with when
learning to VJ.
size of these clips is 320x240 or 640x480 in
two options - Quicktime/PhotoJPEG (Mac/PC but larger
- marked as Windows Media on archive.org as there's
no option for avi/Indeo - codec should be already installed
Windows). Keyframed every frame.
clips are also contained in a .rar file if you would
like them all in an easy to download package (must
use FTP for that) - although why you'd want more than
a couple of these is a mystery. Since they're all pretty
abstract, there's not much to describe, so no 'shotlist'
as such. A screenshot and the length in seconds is
are NOT for everybody's taste - they are messy, grungy
and grainy loops harvested from "Vintage AV Plug
n Play" sessions using equipment from the 1980's
and 1990's such as Fairlight Computer Video Instruments
(CVIs), the Panasonic WJ-AVE7 and feedback from an
analogue Panasonic video camera on a Commodore monitor.
Fairlight CVI was developed in Australia in 1984
and was used by early live-AV artists such as Severed
Heads. Oddly, Wikipedia doesn't even mention
their ground-breaking AV work from the 80's -
but we recommend
buying their DVD paleolithic: "From
1983 to 1994 Severed Heads made videos on hand
built rack thingies
bits of wire going everywhere and lots of knobs
labelled with scribble. This is Paleolithic - a
DVD with all
the highlights, the bright colours, the wobbling
lines. See ancient heavy shit in the comfort of
don't expect many VJs will find these loops terribly
appealing, but some of you might appreciate their old-skool
for that 80's Electro look - or they could be useful
just as textures and underlayers. We have tried to
edit out the worst strobing, but given the nature and
unpredictability of such equipment, there is a certain
amount of flickering - so epileptics beware, and test
each one before you use it in public.
you ever find yourself thinking 'Yawn, my sets have
got so slick and perfect. I'm just TOO good' - then
these could be the antidote you're after. A couple
of these thrown in a set and you'll have people convinced
your fancy hi-tech VJ equipment is malfunctioning.
If that's not what you're after, then save your bandwidth
and don't bother downloading these.
Recycling for leading by example, and for
giving us a nice copyright notice to shamelessly steal.
Ah, the irony.
