Here is a video explaining with the Edge is all about. Researching today on the.thepeoples50million.org.uk/projects/the-edge website i fond out the Ray Mears is supporting the project, and what a legend he is!!! I have had some thoughts about the story board but I am going to wait and see if what I am doing is right before I carry on. In the mean time here is a video telling you all about The Edge:
I have been thinking about this project and i have an idea of how the page introduction should go. Linking with the Tim Burton feel, I was thinking along the lines that the domes load one by one and the the flying eating plant grows out and each catcher or the plant is a link to another page on the site, The thing t this is where I got stuck as I am unsure on what links we are having on this site, but meeting with Aqeel today ha says we are all set to meeting Mike on Tuesday to discuss context. Ooh also found out that the characters has to be more alien like now, how does this relate to a desert/ oasis scene I’m not sure, but hey if that’s what they want!!
£50 million, four competitors and only one winner
The National Lottery is having a compertion where the public vote for the corse that they feel best deserved the money to go ahead to build their project. The fours projects taking part are:
Connect2 is a UK-wide project that aims to improve local travel in 79 communities by creating new walking and cycling routes for those everyday journeys.
The Eden Project/ The Edge
The Edge represents the next evolution of the Eden Project in Cornwall, where communities will be able to share the ideas they have for improving their lives and surroundings.
Sherwood: the Living Legend
Sherwood: The Living Legend will protect the fragile ecology of one of the world’s most famous forests so it can be enjoyed by future generations.
Black Country Urban Park
Not only will our project entice visitors to discover the Black Country, but more than 800,000 people will live within walking distance of a much needed attractive, safe environment.
The Eden Project have come to Plymouth Uni and asked Chris Speed and Mike Phillips to get some student involved with help with the promotion. They both decided to ask Aqeel to be teamleader, good choice I must say. Aqeel then had to pick his team from the second year Idat group, and you have guessed it Aqeel decided to pick me as he likes the ideas i come up with and my skills with flash. He says I will mainly be working with Simon, as he is really good at animation and action script.
I have been asked to start thinking about story boards of how the flash site will look, but its all still a bit confusing to tll what we actually have to do. Next Firday we are meeting up with Mike to talk things through. This is very exciting, I am really up for this project!!!!
Just a BIG thank you to Aqeel for picking me! Now lets make The Edge with this money!!!!
