Iaminawe featured on Icebox

Liquid Fridge is a non-profit organisation devoted to advancing contemporary South African creativity by encouraging interaction between those who explore the creative uses of technology, and debating the issues of art, media, culture and society.

iaminawe were picked as “artists of the month” at the fridge a little while back which we were quite stoked about and we designed a set of banners that rotated on the site for that month.

The Liquid Fridge is also responsible for the excellent Icebox Audio/Visual Art Festival which is currently in it’s second incantation and is finishing off with a closing party tonight at the Armchair. Iaminawe has had animations featured in the first festival and now the Goldfish All Night music video has been showing in this years line-up.

This Cape Town based group have been really great at linking up the local network of skaters, artists, designers, animators, filmakers and general all round media mad maniacs that inhabit the city. We have been to many of their “Upload” workshops and it is always enlightening to come across a wide range of diversely talented people really doing some interesting stuff in the audio/visual/activist/street art arena’s.

Iaminawe created 2 minutes of animation for the new David Kramer & Taliep Pieterson production “Ghoema” that features a San rock painting of a dutch galleon slowly become a real one that sails through the symbols of slavery history.

David Kramer has once again joined forces with long-time musical partner Taliep Petersen to create an exciting new musical revue called GHOEMA that celebrates and explores our musical heritage. Delving deep into early South African history at the Cape, the revue explores the roots of slave music as far back as 1650 - 1795, the heyday of the mighty Dutch East India Company which had an enormous influence on the lives of all people under its rule. The slaves that the Company brought to the Cape from countries as far as Indonesia, India, Madagascar, and Java had an enormous impact on the settlement here. They influenced a cross-pollination of lifestyles, music, language and culture between themselves, the indigenous people, the Dutch and other European settlers.

The fusion of all these influences into something that is uniquely South African, is the inspiration behind GHOEMA. ( A ghoema is a drum made from a small wine vat, with a skin stretched tightly over one end. It was created by the slaves and is still used today.)

For an interesting interview with David about the production have a read at theatre.com. For a local review of its run at Cape Town’s Baxter theatre Tonight newspaper review should do it and catch up with how it went at its recent opening on London’s West End.

Kirstenbosch Goldfish VJ

This was an awesome afternoon concert in Cape Town’s beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens. I was VJing on a matrix of 9 60″ plasmas and the fish were in full force with an awesome drummer, jazz vocalist and guitarist all adding up to a rocking set for an audience of over 3000 people.

The photos in the above gallery were taken by Angella and the guys on stage.

Iaminawe created these 20 second and 10 second commercials for Atomic Visual FX. The ads are flighted just before the news and so the watch counting down had to have several versions of it created to fit each different time slot. These were created entirely in Photoshop and After Effects.

Very Late Show Animations

Iaminawe created some giant screen motion graphics to accompany the infamous Corne and Twakkie as the hosts of the 2006 Smirnoff International Comedy Festival “Very Late Show”. It was hysterical and the animations added an awesome element of interaction to the guys crazy antics.

We are proud to finally launch the Goldfish All Night video out into the wild world web… it was a gruelling month or two of learning 3D the hard way on a groaning PC working day and night to render out the 7 layers that were comped in After Effects and mixed with motion graphics and live footage to create the end product. It has been shown on MK89, MTV Base, E-TV and SABC 3 and the track “All Night” has done really well on local radio stations and abroad.

If you like the video please give it a rating or comment at youtube and help it to be seen by more ppl.

There was a chilled interview with the band about the new video and album over at The Armchair and a cool post about the video over at inside peak performances

To find out more about Goldfish view the site we built for them at goldfishlive.com or there is always their myspace. If you are in South Africa it is also possible to buy the video for your mobile phone over at 35050
