  • The Design Report

    The design report was my first full-blown multimedia production, in partnership with a colleague at Newcastle College in 1998. It was developed using a number of applications, some of which were fairly new at the time but are now firmly established: Flash, Dreamweaver & Fireworks. Alongside these the project also made use of QuickTime and QuickTime VR, along with Premiere, Freehand and Photoshop. The Design Report was designed to be delivered on college computers into web browsers, Navigator 3 & 4 and Internet Explorer 4, and to be used as additional reference material to accompany the relevant course module.

Checked the tide times but then forgot to adjust for BST and got there an hour early, bummer. Still extra hour means more time to prepare. In the hour or so it took me to get there the Sun became much brighter so I figure I’m going to have difficuilty getting a long exposure at 1 in the afternoon. Note this for next time and go when the tide is at a better time of the day. Shot on Adox CHS25ART film, a 25 ISO film that is halfway between panchromatic and orthochromatic and developed in Rodinal, 1+30 for 8 minutes. First position was just of the beach, low down [...]

  • Wetlands Project

    The Wetlands Project was a Helix Arts funded project to create two videos and in the process to teach some children the basics of animation. As the two videos were to be one in 3D and one in 2D myself and the colleague I was working decided that in the 8 visits to the college the children made we wouldn’t be able to teach them anything useful about 3D graphics. Instead we taught them the basics of 2D animation principles on paper and involved them in the process of character design and used those in the video. History 3D Animation The first video is in 3D and was supposed to show something about how the earth had changed over the its life. A sequence was made in Bryce showing a section of a simulated Earth’s surface and the [...]
