week 2 of our interactive media unit. so starting on wednesday we came in early and had a leve 3 christmas party before lessons where we sort mixed with 2nd years but then after they we played some games after that we then started our normal wednesday lesson to start with I was looking into differnet types of interactive media we only in for a few hours on wednesday so I spent the whole time looking into interactive media and what it was on Thursday we are in all day so i was able to complete my research unit for interactive and audio and still yet to complete visual i was having trouble doing the research but after having dan and scott both explain it to me ive started to understand and have manged to complete it. the proposal is nearly finished just got a few more things to add then that should be complete we are going to first try filming with a 360 camera then if it doesn't we have decided to move on to using a camera to film it all. as it is christmas we haven't got a friday lesson so i will be carrying on completing the visual unit at home during the holidays.
So our project is about interactive media (refers to things as digital based work it use the player’s actions to control the content things such as animation video audio and video games. All forms of interactive media. The project that we will be working on is a interactive video it is going to be called “lanyard”
The video will included a person running to get to class on time and having a few things go wrong on the way so then you will have to choose which way the character will go. We will have different options such as walk through the car park or in college walk up one set of stairs or the other.
You will in college and you realized you forgot your lanyard so you have to choices if you are going to walk through college doors or walk around the side entrance. If you take first route you then need to decide if your going to jump the barrier or wait for a friend or pay for a new one if you pay you loss because you don’t have any money other option was wait for a friend but because you are already late you then get pulled get caught as you walk through so only option is to jump the barrier you then run into a big tall person and you got another three options to run away,fight,say you’re sorry. Then it comes to the stairs do you run up first flight or keep going down the corridor to the second set of stairs if you come to the second set of stairs you then choose media department or go left to run to your lesson if you pick media you lost and got start again if you go left then you run down the corridor and get there on time.
Other way was going left in the car park if you chose to go through the car park you then have another option to walk up the fire stairs and go in that way or carry on down to the side door if you walk up the stairs you will loss so you need to carry on going to the side entrance. Once you get there you will have another 2 options 1 go through the sports hall or second you run through the corridor if you pick sports hall the cleaner tells you off so you need to run down the corridor then you choice if you want to shortcut the toilet or keep running down if you keep running then you get caught at reception so if u run through the toilet you then have to decide media way or stairs outside of reception.
The location of the interactive project will be set at sgs college wise campus reason being is we don’t really need to leave site and everything can be done here we will be using the first and second floor and other places around the college
The target audience will mostly be young people 16-21 even though it’s not got weapons or anything violent in we going target it to people between 16 and 21 because it’s stuff that will need to be done online and with the generation we know the most about technology they will know how work the interactive video.
The equipment that we are going to use is a 360 camera i have one of them myself so we won’t be needing to book it out and other things we will be using are things such as bike helmet and a bike mount strap as for filming the camera is going to be on jack’s head and he will be walking around college with a camera on his head.im not too sure if we will be using any other bits of quipment but we will be using a mac and final cut pro to edit all the footage together.
So being the fact it is a college course there isn’t really a budget and we are going to be filming on college grounds we don’t have to account for things like bus or parking or things like that because we are going to be based on college grounds.
