new work

hi all new work: http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vog_archive/000393.html mouse into each of the video panes. there arre three simultaneous sound tracks, mousing determines which you hear. from the explanation at http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/vlog_archive/000394.html The work discusses the three things that went on recently (thrombosis, hard drive failure, sick children). Trouble usually travels in threes, and of course the rule of thirds is also a simple photographic come cinematographic rule of thumb (derived from the Golden Mean but that's questionable mathematics) about decent composition. The work is deliberately fragmentary. The video panes only run at 12fps as I was seeking a stuttering, collaged mismatch between voice and face. Stuttering as the condition of the network ("will it arrive? where does that link take me?"), progress bars parading as interaction to hide the fact of these stuttering fragments. This cinematic vog practice is not wannabecinema. It lives and stalls on the network. This vog is simple in design and execution, didn't take very long to script (took me longer to get the iSight and QuickTime Broadcaster happy), and continues the vogs continued insistence on exploring vernacular interaction as a viable methodology for desktop video on the web. The question or problem it poses is suitably simple: if you had a video with three simultaneous soundtracks what would you narrate? How? Why? I think I'm thin on answers, but thick on problems. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/ [View]

I thought that was just used for streaming. --Steve --------- [ Please Note ] --------- If my email hosting service is rejecting your replies, please give me a phone call. It's not you, it's them!

My answer then (and has been in the past) that I want people to think that if something calls itself interactive then they are expected to use their mouse (in this environment) to do something to the work. In my case with most of the movies mousing in to the work usually makes something happen. So my rationale is that just as we longer feel the need to say "click here" in web writing (well, we shouldn't feel the need), then why should we feel obligated to provide buttons or instructions with video? I know we should while people learn the ropes, but part of my stuff is to encourage people to play with the material because they ought to learn how to play :-) having said all that, they can be obtuse so i think I'll start adding very simple user instructions with them. not much use being doctrinaire if no one can listen. > >> This vog is simple in design and execution, didn't take very long to >> script (took me longer to get the iSight and QuickTime Broadcaster >> happy), > > How are you using QuickTime Broadcaster?
