Here’s what the Flashing the Square microfiction videos look like

I’ve pasted an example of the Flashing the Square videos below. Each runs for about 3 minutes. If the animation seems a little slow remember these are created to be shown on a public screen with audience moving through and past the space, rather than necessarily to be watched from beginning to end in the way a movie or video clip is usually experienced. I hope you enjoy it.

Flashing the square is now up and running at the Melbourne Writers Festival. Check the Fed TV page for schedule details (under Melbourne Writers Festival). Both the stories and the Roomers collaborative text project look great up on the screens (as well as running on the big screen they’re also showing on the atrium screen near the NGV Australia entrance. With 25 degrees forecast for Sunday (September 1) there’s a great opportunity to experience the pieces when they screen between 7 and 9 pm.
