6 weeks to go !! Monday, Apr 11 2011 

As you can see from the title of the post, its 6 weeks till the exhibition so if you see a few people looking rather anxious you will understand why. Amy has been busy this morning updating a timeline for the next couple of weeks 🙂 Programming is coming along really really well. We have the files linking and the second game working, all that needs to be done is the final interface as we decided last week to go with a where’s wally type game!

Amy is also hard at work getting ready to record some sound effects this week. Taste testing also began this morning for one of our objects but to find out what it is, you’ll need to come to our exhibition to find out 🙂

As for me, I’m currently in Starbucks getting ready to start the interface for game 2 🙂 and then later on tonight, working on the greenscreen footage to import our backgrounds 🙂 so maybe a sneak peak over the next couple of days.

Anyways. I think that’s all for the moment. More posts to be updated as we go 🙂 Don’t forget to check out our other accounts 🙂


Bloopers from Green Screen Shoot :) Monday, Apr 11 2011

Hope everyone’s Monday is off to a good start. We decided to start today with a blooper video edited by Amy 🙂


Carnival Visit from 16/3 Sunday, Apr 10 2011 

Hey again 🙂

I know, plenty of updating tonight. Here’s a video from the carnival visit myself and Amy did on the 16th March to record audio for our project 🙂 Video recorded and edited by Amy 🙂

Animation Sunday, Apr 10 2011 

So, for the second post today 🙂 we wanted to show you a small test animation that we did last weekend.


Graphics Sunday, Apr 10 2011 

Hey Guys

So, with 6 weeks to go till June, we are all starting to get nervous 🙂 but don’t worry, we will get everything done. Amy is nearly finished with editing and then I will be adding the 3d background. With that, I thought I’d post stuff up for you to see. Not as much has been done as I would have liked but with the easter hols coming and no more assignments apart from 3d, all will be finished for when we go back (Fingers crossed) in the graphics area 🙂

So what do you guys think 🙂 Lots more to be added this week, and expect more updates on the blog 🙂

Major Catch Up Time :) Thursday, Apr 7 2011 

Hey Everyone

I’ve just been looking at our site stats, I can’t believe the amount of people who have viewed our blog 🙂 Thank you, it means a lot to us 🙂

Anyways, sorry guys for not updating much over the past couple of weeks, but we have been very very busy. As you would have seen from out last post, we managed to film green screen footage with our wonderful Amy acting as Jinx the Jester. For more photos, check out our flickr account 🙂 The mask is hand made by myself (Nicole) and Amy as well as the scepter which Melina kindly sacrificed her ribbon and her beautiful Christmas decoration which unfortunately suffered a severe accident. At the moment, Amy is working hard on editing the footage and hopefully within a couple of days, we could be updating you with a blooper reel.

Programming is well under way. We have very good news on that front as Melina and Marie-Therese have been working on different parts. Melina, has managed to get the swf files linking to a main flash file 🙂 in other words we have a linking project 🙂 and Marie-Therese has got our second game working 🙂 So all good news so far 🙂

Exhibition Plan is also going to be handed in tomorrow. Pictures will be posted in the next couple of days.

Amy has been working hard on the audio front as well as the previously mentioned editing 🙂

As for me, I have been busy trying to get graphics done. Its slowly but surely getting there and with all assignments due before easter done, I can go full steam ahead 🙂 I’ll also put some images up of what I have done as the layout of carnival town has been finalized 🙂 Also I have started doing light tutorials and am creating textures in illustrator.

Humm, I think thats everything for the moment. I want to thank Marie-Therese for doing the last post and uploading the photos 🙂

Finally like always don’t forget to check our other accounts 🙂

Update Monday, Mar 28 2011 

Hope you are all enjoying the nice weather 🙂

So the PR plan has been extended as Eileen has been unwell and unable to attend class. Also this week the Exhibition plan is due  so we are in the process of getting our deliverables ready.

Last week we found out that the exhibition will be held over three days on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June so we are busy trying to think of ways that we might have to change the project to fit the space we may be given.

We have finally been given the go ahead to use the green screen so let the green screen fun begin on Wednesday 🙂
