NakaMania pt 1 from Mya Stark on Vimeo.
This video was shot by Dr. NakaMats’ personal secretary, Hasegawa, on his recent trip out to Cinefamily/Mastodon Mesa and Show Cave. I trimmed it down into just a small taste of the world through his eyes. It just covers up to the introduction of the movie however, I’m hoping he’ll send more that covers his song and dance with Hadrian, the Mastodon Mesa art show on the patio, and the Show Cave lecture. Watch this space.
When the Mesa first heard of artist and filmmaker Kasper Astrup Schröder’s documentary THE INVENTION OF DR. NAKAMATS from our friends at FLAUNT, the enthusiasm engine was instantly engaged. Unstoppably snowballing awesomeness eventually led to the creation of elaborate floppy disc flora, bouncy shoe demos, invention-inspired art, underwater cakes, and a seminude Dorian Wood performing covered in portraits of the good Dr. on the patio at Cinefamily’s Los Angeles premiere presentation of the film in concert with FLAUNT. You’re going to have to wait til the next issue comes out to see pictures of that.
And of course… in getting to meet Dr. NakaMats himself.

Video from the subsequent NakaLecture at Show Cave will be available as soon as we mail it to Kaspar in Denmark and he has a chance to edit it… which should give you enough time to get prepared for some major revelations about Cosmic Energy.
All in all… hell yea.
