Adobe Max Video Wall works ok as a slideshow

Here it is

But is it animation?

Is there a plot?

Are there characters?

Moral development?

Can it be stored on film and curated properly?

Feb 08 for discussion on distribution

Conversation with Jo Gedrych of Exeter Television about future possible meetings. More later but just as a note to come back to it seems probable there will be some future conversation around the time of Animated Exeter in February 08. At the Phoenix Media Centre there is an interest in YouTube and offering support for people who want to find better ways of using it. My own approach so far has been to load very short token clips and try to persuade other people to load longer ones. Otherwise I just borrow something that is already there.

A few examples

The Plump DJs mix video. There is a connection with the demoscene in my opinion. You could start with a search on Sundown and Budleigh Salterton.

Mobile phones as an input. Would it work as an output?

More later. there will be a closely argued script with categories each making up a timed sequence of television. Unless something else keeps turning up during such a project.

Almost forgot

From Exeter TV

Can it all fit together somehow?

Modem Festival continues

In the Guardian it said that the Raindance Festival would be showing stuff online. More about this when it turns up.

Meanwhile the Raindance site seems to be promoting their TV that turns out to be based on Joost. So far I have found some stuff from Aardman. A Town Called Panic. So this is reassuringly normal animation.

You have to follow the link then think of a name, use an email address that works etc etc. install takes a while. random adverts turn up. but maybe the Raindance stuff will be worth a look.

Joost™ the best of tv and the internet

Flashforward winner has a plotline

More later on the demoscene in Budleigh Salterton.

Meanwhile a link to one of the winners from Flashforward.
Works ok on a small screen, just wait a while for it to load.

Nothing abstract about this and it has characters. So some balance there in the wide scope of this blog.
