Notes from Forum Discussion

Thanks to everyone who has contribute to this.

We are now at the end of this little mini project. If anyone who has any further machinima clips they would like included or any thoughts at all on the topic of what you like doing in SPP, please let me know of them via the forum discussion so that they can be included. Thanks.

Progress Notes

2nd Feb Meeting:
1. Plan a 'storyline' (or is it a 'storyboard')?
2. Establish whether or not it is possible to film to reasonable quality video.

My experience so far is that editing video clips and setting them in time to music is not a problem, but filming to acceptable quality is! Unless I can work out how to do this, I may have to use PowerPoint after all! :o))

28th Jan:

1. Had a go at filming, editing, incorporating music and uploading. (very poor quality, disappointing results :-()
2. Experimented with various screen capture software.
3. Looked at examples of other machinima (and felt woefully inadequate)!

My main problems is the quality of the recorded video. It does not look good full screen and is not suitable for projecting onto a large screen. All help and advise very welcome.

22nd Jan:

  • What activites should be included?
  • What places should be shown?
  • What should we use for background music?
  • Does anyone have any existing machinima clips which could be incorporated?

A song from Dudefish's band: Media:Walk_On_Soundtrack.mp3 Is this suitable? I'd like to use it if no other offers or suggestions.
