After the success of our New Years eve party we set out to do a series of parties at significant points in the calendar where time shifts, and they’ve proved to be successful so far, each reaching capacity for the venue with great feedback. We started with ‘SPRING FORWARD‘ as the clocks went forward an hour, we celebrated the Solstice with ‘SOLSTISH‘ and now Summer is over, the clocks are going back an hour and the longer nights are upon us, we’re throwing a masked party to mark the next shift in time to Winter ‘HELLOWEEN – WHEN TIME REWINDS’. We have a special late night guest this time around, DJ JAPHY, who will be taking the dancefloor through the first dark hours of winter with the club suitably decorated for the eve of the eve of Hallloween. The flyers for the event, to be found around Hastings and St.Leonards, will be your mask for the night and tickets will be available HERE.
2016 marks the 950th anniversary of The Battle of Hastings and there are many related activities and events throughout the year in the town and surrounding area. The main focus of the festivities comes at the end of the summer, the ROOT1066 International Festival, which runs from September 3rd till October 16th. Festival Director Polly Gifford has commissioned us to create a closing event for the celebrations, for which we have chosen the recently opened Source Park, the worlds largest underground skate and BMX park, as the venue. We’re currently making plans and talking ideas through with collaborators in order to create A unique Work In Progress, the start of an ongoing wider work focusing on the Source Park. More info will be released over the next two months with hints as to what you might expect. Join us on October 16th from 6pm.
EduFlicks ‘Hollywood Classroom Project’, working closely with Hollywood action director David Lane and film/ fx producer Michele Fabian Jones we were tasked with the role of design, conceptualisation and visualisation of an educational app for use by secondary education students.
We were given a simple storyboard which we developed and re-designed resulting in a learning concept app that uses work groups/ smart phones and social media platforms to engage students with creative film challenges orientated around curriculum based subject matter, rather like a ‘digital exercise book’. We also worked on green screen compositing work for the pre-loaded content, the example being the balcony scene from Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. The app is currently in further development based on our supplied user journey examples, design and compositing.
