MONTREAL Posts

We kick off the week with a "Presentation of the Day" that was recorded in Frankfurt about a studio in Montreal. 75 multimedia artists work at Moment Factory. Although the studio is based in Montreal, Canada, the team is composed of people from around the world and from various backgrounds, including dance, architecture, lighting design, programming, engineering, graphic design, illustration, music, production and more. What Gabriel Pontbriand loves so much about his job is that each project is a surprising adventure. Having and international and multidisciplinary group of people working together allows them to imagine interactions between technology and emotion that are unique each time.

The latest PechaKucha Night in Montreal may have been held last night, but since we've never featured a poster from that city on PechaKucha Daily, here's a look at the poster for the Vol. 14 that was.

Power Pill

It's no secret that yours truly is personally excited about the upcoming iPhone game Power Pill from Canadian creators Polytron and Infinite Ammo -- forming the all-powerful Infinitron Polypharma -- and as we previewed last week, Polytron's Phil Fish was set to reveal the first details of the game at this week's PechaKucha Night in Montreal. The night has come and gone, and Power Pill's "viral" debut is now public, thanks to Phil posting all of the presentation's images online -- and here's a video of the presentation.

Power Pill

Fans of indie gaming, and more importantly of the upcoming and hotly anticipated game Fez from the Polytron Corporation, will not want to miss next week's PechaKucha Night in Montreal Vol. 13 (September 30), where Polytron designer Phil Fish will give a presentation on his other game -- Power Pill, an iPhone title designed in collaboration with developer Infinite Ammo -- "[t]alking about the highs and lows of designing a multi-touch game for fun and profit."

The Stage for PKN Montreal

How's this for a beautiful setup: the scene for PechaKucha Night in Montreal Vol. 11, held last week at the SAT (Society for Arts and Technology). See a larger version here, as well as the view from the stage.
