Hoo-ah. Funky techno beats.
So, a couple weeks ago, I got to meet Cory Doctorow. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t know who he was until a few weeks before I met him, but now I think he’s pretty cool. The best part about meeting him is that this comic now makes a whole whack of sense.
Cory is an author of the sci-fi variety, and thus he’s right up my alley. He’s also really nice.
I went to the book launch for his newest book, Makers, at the Merril Collection of Science Fiction in Toronto with some classmates for a group project/feature series we’re working on. It’s all about maker culture, a do-it-yourself re-revolution that we think is going on. If you’re extra keen, we have a blog, and here are the finished pieces slated to be released shortly on Rabble.ca and TheTyee.ca.
Anyway, if you check around the blog or in my youtube channel, there is a video I cut together of us talking to Cory. But, in the theme of the project we were working on, I decided that I wanted to make something that wasn’t so stiff. We had a lot of extra footage that wasn’t getting used for anything, and I’d never made a video that had music before.
This video is about some of the neat people we met waiting in line to get their book signed by Cory.
