I thought you guys would be interested in this. This was an interview that I filmed with Android Jones as a preliminary interview for a documentary that I was going to make about digital art. The documentary never happened (though perhaps it may some day) but I decided to finally "finish" the interview, and post it online. Andrew said some very insightful things.
Take note that this was originally going to be just for our/my own reference so the quality is not very high.
p.s. The music is by one of my favorite bands, Ulver...

Just watched the intro, looks real good. Cant wait to finish up here at work (7 more hours) and check it out at home.
This is awesome, Jake.
Well done, thanks for posting it.

Thanks for posting this. It was a really interesting interview.

Thanks so much Jacob. haha fuck the AIM teachers !
I was in a documentary program called AIM in high school and it was like an unwritten rule that after every video/documentary you had to write "Thanks to the AIM teachers." And the teachers were serious about it... They have such low self esteems that they would lower your grade for not thanking them hahaha. But yeah, that's where that comes from... I aint in AIM anymore beeyatchez!
Awesome, very well done! I've only watched the first two so far but I liked the questions you asked. Especially the ones about digital vs traditional and where the name "Android" came from.
Only suggestion I have is that, if you make another or finish your documentary, maybe take a tripod with you (even if its a cheap gorillapod). There were a couple of points where I got slightly distracted by the camera shaking. Plus, I imagine your arm must have gotten pretty sore trying to keep the camera steady for so long.
Also, just out of curiosity, how long ago was this filmed?
I'm watching the second vid now, and I noticed something really distracting; the music is way too noisy, it's hard to concentrate what Android's saying. It's all about functionality!
Thanks for putting this up though.

And about the noise in the second part, it's not the music. There was metal building going on in the other room, so that noise you are hearing is actually metal being ground away. It was distracting even during the interview and it's unfortunate that it's so noisy in the vid.
Thanks for the film.
He has interesting perspective about art.
I wonder the visual/sound expression can beyond the body experiences or sensation - in other word, the level of pleasure. The amount of information connected to the eyes and ears are less than few percent compared to the whole body.
The music is so scary, totally creeped me out while watching the interview XD Great work though :3
