Video Editing Masterclass

We have been very fortunate to have two masterclasses with Fabio re the making of the Workshop DVD. On Our first session involved the creation of a storyboard. In our second session we were able to see the beginnings of our 5 min video clips and to visualise the process involved for the final DVD.

Fantastic Day!!!!

Yesterday was fantastic. Everything went extremely well. Technology was on our side and we were able to Skype with Italy and connect to New York via Video link.

We had divided the workshop into the following themes:

Beyond Text: Oral
Beyond Text: Physical
Beyond Text: Visual
Beyond Text: Digital
Beyond Text: Aural
Beyond Text: Virtual

Working with a fairly flexible brief our distinguished academic speakers were able to make the workshop a truly exciting and innovative day. See the slide show of photos to the right.

Last Minute Plans - Jerk Chicken??

We had our final project meeting today before our event on Saturday. I think we have it all in hand. As usual there are a lot of small things that need to be done and they could so easily turn into big things!!

We've finalised our lunch menu and are expecting 26+ postgraduate students.

Tendai has created a wiki page on Imoinda - it's going to be a great interactive tool.

With the last minute touches all in place - Let the fun begin.......

What's in a Handbook?

Today I created a mock up of our workshop handbook- A6 size can you believe it!

Will be showing it to the rest of the team tomorrow.

It's quite a handy size and should double up as a pocket-sized notebook which will make it a useful tool for the workshop participants.

Pinch! Punch! First of the month ....

Let the countdown begin.

Since my last blog entry the project team have attended Video Conference training which went extremely well and we were able to run a test with SUNY Geneseo in New York.

We still have to run a Skype test with the University of Trento in Italy and will be doing that this week.

We are also hoping to be able to tweet up dates on the day for those of you who are not able to be with us on Saturday.

Only 5 more days to go before the event.
