The Global Forum is an annual, high-level event for the world’s leading thinkers and doers to shake up their ideas. I’ve been a regular there since 2006 and have a good relationship with the organisers who are very supportive of me and my work. We are currently attempting to bring the Forum to Ibiza in 2015 and to see if I can present the Social Computer there in 2014 or 2015.

This video is a promotional material to give an idea of the Sandbox project. I made the interviews, edited the video, produced the effects and post processing (but not the animations). The music is from an anonymous friend (used with permission)..
I bumped into Eva accidentally and had an hour or so to kill before I had to go and film something. She told me they were doing a fashion show as a try-out for 5 new girls in Ibiza so I offered to make a little film. Unfortunately I had to leave before the actual catwalk because it was delayed. It makes a good demo of my process I think, where the timing comes together almost by accident. It took 1 hour to film and about 8 hours to edit.
This was a little fun project to say thanks welcoming me into the conference. I made the interviews, created the animated earth for the global forum logo and edited this video from the same interviews I made for the Sandbox teaser video.
I was asked by Random Collision (a performance collective based in Groningen, NL) to present the Civil Sandbox concept at one of their workshop/presentation evenings. In addition to presenting at their event, I made this video including the animation of their logo. My presentation starts at 4:10.
“Pras was born in India and grew up in England. He moved to Holland in late 2000 to engage in cultural projects. He is a multimedia and computer specialist/artist who likes to concept community projects and new technologies. The Civil Sandbox is a culmination of 15 years of research into the creation of new services for 21st century citizens. His presentation will focus on the overall concept and its ability to empower us to create change.”
I made this for a VJ set for Pendulum when they played in Groningen for the Noisia guys.
I made this video while freelancing for blogactiv.eu who were running the blog of the European Business Summit.
