I might not of stated in previous posts, but as part of the group project ‘Outside The Box’, we had to show our finished artefact/project, along with all research and findings, as part of a presentation to the class and a few Creative Media tutors.Today was that day and im pleased to say it went well. Everyone seemed to have a nice little giggle at the comedic elements of the videos, but more importantly, they understood what we were trying to achieve through these experiments, and the theory or research behind it. As we expected, there were flaws to be seen in the first experiment: Bean Bag Front Row, and we stated how did not view this as a total success as compared to the outstanding results of Basketball Bin. A few suggestions and points to look back on were also pointed out by the tutors present, which are taken into consideration.
The other groups presented some amazing artefacts too. There were some great documentaries on: women in the creative media industry, how individuals should not be judged based on looks/appearances, creative medias and The Creative Spark’s (a creative hub/building currently in construction) presence in Dundalk, 10 years of Creative Media in DkIT. There was also a great short film presented about the stereotyping of Ireland in films, a fantastic comic book about the need for creativity and optimism during the recession, and an amazing interactive timeline providing the user with a fun means of engaging with history from Creative Medias last 10 years in DkIT. Overall, an inspiring day with a lot of informative projects and presentations.
