RESIDENT ALIEN -- Tim Kirby, a developer with his web feet in the first generation of Irishblogs, has a series of DVDs that turn black plasma screens into vibrant backgrounds in pubs and clubs. The big challenge for nightclubs is making money from hardware--like plasma screens--that might have been installed years ago. The Resident Alien DVD System is a series of ambient video DVDs that transforms bars and clubs, entertainment and hospitality venues, public spaces and retail stores. The screen effects provide warmth, mood and atmosphere--all the things a club manager needs to energise a crowd. Resident Alien DVDs incorporate organic and geometric shapes, particles and cascades, landscapes, tunnels, field warps and 3D abstracts. With music pumping, they remind me of a Pink Floyd concert.
