USC Interactive Media Thesis Exhibition "Press Start"

FoundTrack Friend Paul Bellezza (famed LA Taco Truck blogger, and member of Team Riot Games) invited us to USC's Interactive Media Thesis Exhibition, "Press Start." More info on the show is below, but basically it's a showcase of the graduate projects of this masters program. Should be an awesome showcase for anyone that's into design, interactive media, video games, motion graphics or art in general.

To kill time until the opening reception this Saturday, checkout the trailer to the independently produced video game "The Misadventures of P.B. WinterBottom" that Paul and company have been working on. I won't pretend to be an expert on the technical side of this stuff, but I can say that from a visual standpoint the game looks awesome- it's highly stylized and is inspired by silent black and white films of Hollywood's early era:
