Dad still brings out the best in me

Losing my dad was tough, but he still brings out the best in me. I think about who he was, and I wanted it to inspire who I am. He was calming, generous, thoughtful, encouraging, and genuine. And I am trying, not be be him, but to embody what people loved so much about him so that I could have as rich a personality as he did for those around me.

MA project: The alternate introduction

Something I discussed in a previous blog post was a need for varying introductions to each of the videos I'm producing. I filmed these today, in the television studio at university. Rather than returning to the park, the same place as I filmed pieces to camera, I chose the studio because the environment is separate to that in the video itself. The separation is important to distinguish between the content, and what is essentially a quick tutorial on 'how to watch this video'.

MA project: Show/hide function

The previous code successfully placed the videos on top of each other, and had made a connection to the viewers webcam - but what about a show/hide function? This is something I'm keen to explore as part of the video, where the videos begin hidden from view and are made available throughout the primary video.
