Got an error when it was uploading, but it seems to be all there.

Hi all, I have added this as requested so that the tutors/markers know who has done what. I have done this in a broad sweep (i.e. very general/hi-level), so I hope I don’t offend anyone. Please add/update accordingly if I have missed anything or if you don’t agree with the allocations.

Very generally we all worked in the following areas:

James – model making, photography

Moss – model making, photography, image post-processing

Earl – everything except the CG animations and 3d-models.

Neo – CG animations, movie editing and photography.

Hyuck – CG animations, and the 3d-model in the book.

Alicia – photography, image post processing, flash animations and presentation, book assembly.

Gareth – book assembly, photography, model making

Presentation Movie: Earl for the original movie capture. Earl, Alicia for the assembly/video editing. Gareth for the sound track. Hyuck for the crystal CG (Neo also worked on another crystal CG animation, but we ended up going with Hyucks version in the end).

Flash Presentation: James with crawling moss, and Earl with moving plant, as well as the overall presentation Flash file, was all done by Alicia, she is the Flash Queen!

Animal/Plant model portraits: We were all invoved in that.

I would also like to acknowledge Earls leadership role within the team; he was key in organising, and co-ordinating our efforts.

Cheers,

Gareth

Made a basic gallery of all the DLF photos I have on my HD. I’ve uploaded small versions of all the photos,  but I have the full-res on me. Might be a good way to sort through them for the book.

Dick Smith Make Up

Hey, while at the the Weta Cave yesterday, the lady there talked about the Dick Smith guy who does make up (not electronics)…

Here is the link: http://www.dicksmithmake-up.com/

Apparently spirit gum/spirit gum remover is used for applying/removing latex prosthetics.

Checkout this link at the BBC. A man with an RFID chip implanted get a computer virus in the chip.

Landscape

May 25, 2010

These models look at the landscape of our environment in an abstract way and contrast the set architecture of today, with how nanites could transform the urban environment in the future. Buildings evolve and change and morph from their current forms as plants in combination with nanites restructure the urban fabric.
