Back from Holidays

Today Roger gave us a presentation about our assessment and what we need to be doing. I found this was very helpful and a good reminder of some of the things that I need to do now and later on in the year.

Roger also showed us how he used Site Meter to see who was viewing his blog. I thought that it was an interesting tool to use, so I decided to use it on my blog as well, just out of curiosity. It seems to be pretty easy to use. I have it all up and running, so it'll be interesting to see if I get any overseas hits.

Apart from that, I didn't get to much done today... the lack of computers was frustrating. And then once I found one, it was really slow and took ages to boot up.

Thats about all I have to report about at the minute. Hopefully I can start work on my own short film pre-production soon.

Last lesson before easter :)

Well, here I am wondering what to do for the next hour before I am officially on holidays. I have little to do at the minute, because I am basically waiting to have some spare time so that I can seriously consider what I want to do for my own personal project, hopefully this will get done in the next week.

I also joined up to the Glassbiscuit Developments wiki, and had a good look around. It's impressive how much work they've managed to get done. It makes me feel a bit slow!!

First post in ages!

Well, it's been quite a while since I updated my blog for my Interactive Media class. I have agreed to help Dan make a short film involving the line between the Virtual world and reality, whilst I am still trying to come up with an idea for my own personal project.I know that I am interested in making a video, but I need to come up with an idea for my video that I think I will want to work on for the rest of the year - there is nothing worse than coming up with an idea only to lose interest in it half way through the year - especially if it is too late to change your mind. I am now aiming to finalise my creative idea for my project in the easter holidays, and hopefully get some preliminary storyboarding done as well. Once i have completed my storyboard i might upload it to this blog so that everyone can see what I'm doing.

Apart from this, I've been trying to play Second Life, with mixed results. I tried to play it at home but it seems that my internet connection is a bit slow to be able to play it, which was annoying. Then I tried to play it school, but it wouldn't work. After a week I managed to play it a little bit, but it kept crashing on me so I got annoyed and therefore I am going to give it a rest for a while.

I've also attended a number of various presentations by Roger and Dirk during regular class time. These have been interesting and I'm sure they will invaluable in aiding the way I think about this course, my future project and the way I go about it.
