U2 W17

April 18, 2010

About 9/10 weeks to the show build. So this is my current project status:

Video: Have been looking at this and the options of buying a new camera. Cost is a major factor, but so to are file types, and the processor power of my computer.

My Canon digital SLR  which I got from Ebay without soft wear and cables etc. and though  have tried downloading the drivers for it from the Canon site haven’t as yet been able to get the down load to install properly so at most I can do is upload files.

I was considering using the Canon to take time lapse for a live cast. I will still try to sort this. To see what sort of image quality might be achievable.

Ideally would’ve brought a new video camera by this point, and am still debating about this. One concern though is that with a better camera ego e with HD quality my computer will struggle with the processing requirements, or if its file capture is .mts it will require Sony Vegas soft wear to edit which again adds a huge cost.

One area I’ve not  thought through as well as I’d like has been in providing an adequate financial plan. It would have been good practice to have tried to allow for a larger final project budget.  Or to look for possible sponsorship etc. so that is a hard learned lesson for future projects. Have to be more active across more areas in order to better ensure a successful outcome.

Korsakow: Begun going over Korsakow this weekend and currently using the older version of Korsakow because of the time scale.

Video from my JVC camera which came from Ebay with out soft wear and cables etc will only open and edit with Windows Movie Maker, so currently I am editing saving files as AVIs and then converting them with Adobe Premier Elements as iMovie files which is the file type this version of  Korsakow accepts.

It’s helpful to move the sequences in to a different arena and run them together as it gives a different slant on the work.

My sister has mentioned that it is possible to run videos in Microsoft Power Point. So have been having a look at that option as well and though am not too sure about it linking videos in the same way as Korsakow and it certainly doesn’t allow for the random element Korsakow provides, (random element provided by Korsakow is a reference for the random nature of the lived body in my project) its a possible format for the coming symposium piece.

Project Title: My project title has been a constant bug through out the course. It outlines/describes/outlines the idea of the MA project. Yesterday was checking the weblog and liked at the tag cloud. The 3 words that stood out were body, movement, identity. Which have formed the basis of the project, so I have updated the project title from Everyday Movements to Body, Movement, and Identity. This refining of hunches, thoughts, and possible understandings in to a clarified language is something I’m always wrestling with.

Mail Art One, summer issue: I would like to offer this issue for the Digital Arts group show so anyone who wanted a paper presence during the final show could have their work represented in it. Need to produce a larger edition, so need to set up an email outlining details and a deadline to my peers to see if there is any take up if not will do call out for the issue.
