Idea: A loop is a magic moment that never ends: a "perpetual mobile" of 
visual emotion.

Invitation: You are cordially invited to participate in the loop pool 
project by "Raum fuer Projektion" (space for projection). We would be very 
happy for you to create a video loop for this project. Do something new or 
use material that you have already shot / produced.

Final product: The final product will be a DVD & a Screening Tape of Video 
Loops by different Video Artists & Film makers. loop pool will be released 
as a DVD and will be shown on different screenings by "Raum fuer 
Projektion". During the Screenings there will be a DJ or Live Music. loop 
pool 06 is already the second edition of the project. Find more information 
about the first release at 

Presentation: loop pool will be presented for the first time during four 
nights at the Festival Lounge of "International Short Film Festival 
Oberhausen" (5th-8th of May 2006).

Technical requirements: It is possible to create video loops with the DVD 
format. There is only one restriction: at the track-changing point the DVD 
will pause on the last frame and the sound stops for a moment until the 
video starts again. Please keep this in mind when you create your video 
loop. If the video loop is short we can loop it smoothly and postpone the 
track point. Scheme: loop | loop | loop | loop loop | break point | loop...

Loops can be silent or with sound. Please keep in mind that loops are to be 
watched again and again. Sound has to be chosen very carefully so as not to 
become bothering after a while. Length of Loop can vary (from a few seconds 
to a couple of minutes). We ask every participant to create one video loop. 
Please donīt hesitate to contact us for further explanations or anything else.

Deadline 1st of April 2006 (premiere is scheduled on the 8th of May 06)

Format: Please send a file (NTSC or PAL, Quicktime or AVI) on DVD-R or CD-R 
or a Mini-DV tape (PAL only). Please DONīT send a video-dvd.

Mailing-Address: Michael Heydebreck, Auenweg 173, Gebaeude 9, D-51063

"International Short Film Festival Oberhausen". The Festival will pay for a
