Come to Byte Me! Fest - only a few days remaining...

Attendances have been really low for Byte Me! Fest events - which is kinda sad for the speakers that we've dragged all the way out here to talk to the Perth Digital Content community.

So, deal is - for remaining events, if you pre-buy a ticket through BOCS, I'll give you a free beer or wine or arrival. Yep, bribery. The only way to get Perth geeks away from their screens!

See for details and booking, or pop into the Perth Town Hall to talk to me - that's where all the events are.

The remaining events are:

Tonight (Thurs) 6-9pm - From Far Far Away - Sue Erokan from Dreamworks (US), Martin Davidson from FinnCragg. Animation Show n Tell. $19/$9.50

Tonight (Thurs) 9pm-midnight - Plug n Play International. VJs from around Australia and around the world - best chance you'll ever get in Perth to see what VJing is in it's many varied forms. Hands on, you get to play. $8/$5 (or free to stick around if you come to the earlier talk)

Saturday 1-4pm FREE Unravelling the New Media DNA. Megan Elliott from X|Media|Lab, our popular Keynote Speaker returns to expand on her talk about the US Wirters strike and other issues for digital content developers. Joined by Raphe Patmore and Jinnan Cai from award-winning Perth web 2.0 startup Buzka. Please RSVP.

Saturday 6-9pm From Dubai to Skull Island - Paul Van Ommen from Weta Workshop (NZ), head of Miniatures on King Kong is joined by locally-based but internationally acclaimed architectural animation company Last Pixel. $19/$9.50

Saturday 9pm-midnight FREE Closing Party - Audio Cephlon, DJ Jim from Loungerama and a whole bunch of VJs from Plug n Play will be playing. Please RSVP.

Sunday 1-4pm BarCampNano - FREE - AWIA, the Australian Web Industry Association, will be running an Unconference showing some of the great web stuff going on here in Perth. Please Register online.

Sunday 6-9pm She Got Game - Robin Hunicke of EA Games (US) and Stephen Grant from the animated TV series Dogstar (just started on the Nine Network). $19/$9.50

During the day, we have Nullarbor games to be played in the Interface, the cool bluetooth-game Ghost Town and the Get Reel on loop in the foyer, showcasing a wide range of world-class WA-made animation from many different fields. That's all FREE.

So PLEASE get off your bum and come on down to a session. If you're reading this, it's highly likely you're eligible for concession (eg your cousin's wife's neighbour is a member of WAnimate or whatever) and remember, if you pre-buy through BOCS I'll give you a FREE DRINK. Yes, a FREE DRINK. *sigh*
