Documentation: Filming

I have asked many people to interact with the space, while filming from three angles.

filming the space

I think this should hopefully give me enough footage to make a good film of how the space works. I will edit it together over the next few days.

Awareness project (lip reading): Context

My original idea was to create an interactive experience for a museum space, making the experience individual to each person. After a long development process, I decided to create a space which is about awareness of lip reading and the importance of making sure people can see your lips.

 

Within the space the participant is trying to listen to a story, but the speaker keeps turning away; which in turn means the audio cuts out. Then the participant has to move position to recover the sound. This is to show the frustration people with hearing difficulties have to endure when trying to lip read.

 

The space was not specifically aimed at a particular audience, but hopefully the engagement is simple enough for a large audience of people to understand and use easily.

Instructions for emergency set up!

On the desktop there is a flash file called rebecca, just click on this and it will come up in the center screen. Make the viewer fill all three screens. Then line the footage up so the center film is directly in the middle of the center screen. Then press down Control and use the roller on the mouse- this will act as a zoom function. use this to get it the right size and position. hopefully this will not  be needed!:D

Finished editing in final cut!

I finally finished the editing in final cut! After I captured the clips I needed somehow they were all out of sync! I have no idea how this happened??! ah well, I managed to get it all synced up nicely, with the amazing andy’s help of corse!!:D

chosen section.

I then edited all the clips separately using the low pass filter in final cut and it worked nicely to make it muffled.

Final Filming!

I’ve done the final filming!! YAY! took longer on the setup so hopefully the angles will be much better!! worked out how to hopefully make it so the third camera does not have the black borders. I forgot to do a sound test at the beginning ugh!! but did one at the end so hopefully that will be enough.

filming final

Will download it tomorrow morning and start trying to decide which section to use, deciding mainly according to the pace at which the head turns and how interesting/fun the content is.
