My name is Doug Blumeyer and I live in San Francisco.
I’m mostly interested in transhumanism, dinosaurs, absurdity, math, and okonomiyaki.
I have my BA in Film & Media Studies from Stanford with a concentration in Writing, Criticism & Practice. I also studied Symbolic Systems, which is a Stanford exclusive program interdisciplinary between computer science, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology, and was a research assistant and visual designer at the Virtual Human Interaction Lab.
I am presently in preproduction on my first feature film, The Unmaking of All Together Now, a quintuply recursed semi-autobiographical tragedy. I’m also in development on an animated film that I hope will turn your brain inside-out someday.
I’ve been studying some bizarro esoteric musical techniques, and in my free time am drafting plans for a new kind of music software with a hyperplanar rather than linear play cursor for starters. I’m considering applying to Stanford’s Music, Science & Technology graduate program sometime in the next few years; if my blogging about the potential of this tool is not enough to convince some folks to help me realize it, then perhaps face to face at the legendary CCRMA I will be able to get the ball rolling.
In the short term, I am trying to get a career started both as a professional video editor and as a gaming concept artist. In the long term, I aspire to be a demiurge, creating gesamtkunstwerks of emergent kinetic architecture: virtual reality collaborative dream worlds that blur the line between interactivity and non-interactivity.
So you can’t say I don’t lack ambition! Butchya gotta learn to crawl before you can learn to walk.
