Today we displayed our second design assignment, although i thought our short film was good, i was massively impressed by other groups, one of them was so thought provoking bringing up issues to do with ethics i was surprised by the idea and thought that went into it. another group did a viewing of a clip called a perfect world, that was also a well done clip, is our world perfect, what is...
we managed to talk and write up the storyboard for the second design project on Friday and after being bribed with coffee and a muffin i decided to do my part in a creepy story teller voice for the computers…i think i should have held out for more
I Play Games
Zombie apocalypse, real fun, real cool! Scoot- disrupt areas to feel more at home Captain crunch Cloud maker Ingress and shadow cities Location based games Understand the context in which you are making for your game The secret side of game design - documenting Iterate and experiment (wash rinse repeat) Data bases The future?
I had my first meeting about the second design project on Friday, it was really good, we were talking about the current events, and what would the world be like if the world went to war, what would the reparations be, would we cause a nuclear winter, would we even survive such a catastrophe! food for though isn’t it?
Today we covered the design process again, but delving more deeply into its process The lecturer talked about the necessity if prototyping He touches several times on games design, and it’s multiple aspects concerning design
Week six presentations - group three critique
The third teams presentation was short and it’s design was poor, although they showed their design process it took up more than half of their presentation, They also lacked a real concise design, it was explained really well, but the final product was lacking
Week 6 presentations second group critique
Flow between - life and chaos A decent presentation that starts from the very beginning, their brainstorm Their presentation although interesting could have used work, it seems at times that they are improvising Their idea of organised chaos is an original one but they could have been more concise about their design and their flow of thought
Week six presentations - first group critique
The first group had an interesting style, they had decided to wait until the very end if their presentation to reveal their design They have utilised wood to make many different ways to represent flow Their primary reorientation of flow, was about the five senses. however due to the build up, when their product was ‘unveiled’ it was a let down, they gave a good presentaton, but they...
the second design project, hopefully this year one will be a lot better than last years, i was out voted by the group, as they wanted to do a machinima, I know right!. the future today, ~tomorrow only exists as long as today is yesterday!~ listening to this lecture and talking about the aspect of possible futures, my mind jumps to Steam punk culture star was - uncut. I must look that up take...
I spent yesterday in a team meeting, going over the prezi presentation and its script
met up with team today to discuss our project, we made major headway and are already drawing up the final prototype. we discussed many things about the flow of life, and how many paths/rivers cross on the journey, and how obstacles can change our path “All roads lead to the great path, some even cross on the way” we talked about the materials that our ‘artifact’ would be...
The Importance of Prototyping
another hour or so of the lecturer talking, explaining things as i type, leaning about the importance of prototyping, story boarding, a useful tool, not just for movies/games but for writing as well, multiple examples of different types of prototyping, a good first prototype is a simple one, it doesn’t need to be overtly complex or refined, all it needs to show is that the designers know...
i was going to listen to the lecture pod-casts of the two i missed, but obviously they don’t work, so no thoughts and reflections on them sorry guys
work on the design project has been slow, sorry about there being no posts on the lecture material but ive missed two, ill update on them as soon as i download the podcasts, Flow, interesting concept wot? the flow of life, its continuum, the choices we make and how it affects our flow, the song just around the river bend sums our design project up quite nicely do i take the left or right...
more design process
Hey there tumblr reader Today we leaned about the varying ways to describe the design process, it wasn’t exactly thrilling, so i once again was doodling - the Astrum-Ensis, its a tower in one of my stories so as i sit here and munch on my chocolate, i’m left pondering how to design this building, and voila - the design process, handy wot? so i shall thrill you with the tales of...
before it escapes me the cartoon, albeit humorous in its aspects didn’t really cause me to think about design or the design process, probably due to the fact ive seen it many times before that it is almost like old news, although it did cause me to think more on the endless possibilities of design, if you can bend water into a constant rotating circle, that what cant you do?
My First Entry
Although i’m not that good at this kind of stuff, i’ll give it a whirl. today was the first lecture of introducing design, or in my case reintroducing design. having already taken this class before and failed by a margin, i already had last years notes to read, so my attention wandered a bit, i wondered what could the design project be? i wondered if my next class would be as...
