14 Days of The Simple Carnival, Day 11: The making of the “A Geek Like Me” music video

14-days-of-the-simple-carnival-03Welcome to Day 11 of the 14 Days of The Simple Carnival!

Every day until February 14 (Valentine’s Day), I’ll be posting one cool, free Simple Carnival thing.

On February 14, The Simple Carnival’s new (and final) album, Smitten, will be released. It’s been nine years since The Simple Carnival has released an album, so I’d like to celebrate the occasion by sharing a bunch of good stuff over these 14 days.

My apologies that today’s Simple Carnival thing is not something new. If you’re a long-time fan, you may have already seen this. But tomorrow’s Simple Carnival thing is connected to this, and I thought it might be a good idea to trot out this behind-the-scenes video out for those who haven’t seen it yet.

“A Geek Like Me” is a track on the upcoming Smitten album, as well as part of the 3D animated music video movie Smitten 3D. First, here’s the finished video.

2D version:

The Simple Carnival – A Geek like Me (2D)

3D version (wear red/cyan 3D glasses with the red lens over the left eye):

The Simple Carnival – A Geek like Me (3D anaglyph)

The behind-the-scenes video is an excerpt from a presentation I gave at 3D-Con 2014. If you have red/cyan 3D glasses, put them on (red filter over the left eye). If you don’t have 3D glasses…well, I guess you’ll just have to squint a little bit at the colors.

Behind the scenes of The Simple Carnival's "A Geek Like Me" (3D – anaglyph)

Tune in tomorrow — I’m going to be giving away something interesting relating to this video.
