Presenting a moving (and moving) snapshot of what the emerging field of live visualism is all about, the new trailer for the Mapping Festival might just give you a shiver.

Thanks to Jerome Monnot, the trailer’s director, for sending this our way – and for the fine work.

Remember, you’re fast approaching the deadline for submitting to this year’s fest. Entries are accepted through November 18.

For my part, I’m clearing my May schedule for both Mapping and LPM, the Live Performers Meeting (dates forthcoming on the latter, but they just finished up an installment in Minsk). In fact, can we just get, like, a big bus to go between Geneva and Rome?

All the gory details of the folks involved in the trailer above:

The Mapping Festival is dedicated to the advancement of the VJ medium. The festival is a meeting place for production and artistic experimentation. It is a laboratory for the VJing discipline, offering both novices and professionals the possibility for exploration as well as a forum for exchanging ideas and resources.
