: Hello From Straad
: Straad SParker January 24, 2008, 06:49:15 AM
Well, due to an introduction from a friend of a friend of a friend, here I am : on yet another adventure.

I am Community Media Coordinator with The Institute of Digital Innovation, University of Teesside. My work is with community groups of all shapes sizes and ages much of which can be seen a http://www.tvcm.co.uk

Generally, it seems I'm facilitating people to tell their stories through digital media and ICT. I stumbled on SL only a short while ago and it's  rapidly become one of the tools in my story telling box of tricks in the shape of Machinima http://www.straad.org.uk I facilitate a lot of animation in my work and I was aware that some of the younger people I work with would wish to get involved in this different method of animation hence my interest in TSL

I'm trying to keep the balance right with plenty of RL, for instance I'm at a school today where we're working on a multi media exhibition. http://www.octorama.co.uk - There is no element of of SL in this other than the fact I've knocked up a visualisation of the Octorama installation in SL. As the kids can't visit this I'm off shortly to shoot a movie (unpopulated machinima?) that I can show them later today.

Great to have you on board. Looking forward to meeting you in-world.

Hi

I am indeed in GMT and therefore an early morning person and obviously an ICTholic reaching for the laptop along with my first shot of caffeine :)

You will have gathered that I am also early morning (GMT) - find the 6am to 7.30am slot is the best bit of the day ... though I do tend to get sucked in to playing on the forum and wiki ...  ::)

Welcome Straad! You probably don't know me in RL, but a colleague from your region has sent me links to your work in the past. I think is inspirational. How wonderful to have you here as part of the Schome Park Project! I would love to learn more about using animations and digital media. Look forward to working with you.

(Probably the wrong topic in which to say this, but I am woefully behind with saying "hello" to folk who have joined recently. I feel I need to do it in the order in which they started, but as there are so many, it is a daunting task! So, a quick hello to all new people, hope to do individual messages eventually  :-\)
