New #Filmmaking Freebies!!

I just added a new Film Making page under the ‘freebies’ tab above. They are typical of the kinds of resources that I produce for all of my classes and workshops. Mobile Journalism (#MoJo) is at the forefront of democratised media and content production. And with video consumption going through the roof and consumer mobile devicesContinue reading “New #Filmmaking Freebies!!”

Wellderly – collaborative participation

My wife is currently studying on the Design for Services Masters programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (Dundee University).

I have, in fact, this past week, been having ‘fun’ with Post-its. This is what it’s all about… What do you think – Extreme CubismContinue reading “Post-it Motion”

You’ll find links to the original posts at the foot of this post but for the purpose of this blog I’ll summarise the key points… On 20 July 2011 I saw Iron Maiden perform at the Scottish Exhibition and Convention CentreContinue reading “Is ‘anyone’ watching..?”
