We just submitted a short film in to the Coastal Cultural Trail film competition.
The film, which takes in the vistas over the 22 miles between the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill and the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings Old Town, is 1 minute in length and shot as a collection of moving postcard images of our trail between the galleries. The competition is being run to promote the galleries and the majestic East Sussex coastline. You can view the film HERE and vote HERE, voting closes September 11th.
We’ve just completed work on a short documentary about the ‘META’ project we did with Cardboard Citizens from January through to March. The short film details how the project came about and its effects on the audience and cast members. You can view further info and watch both the documentary and our visual work for the project HERE.
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.
