LECTURE: Broadcast Technology0
Today we looked at timecode with a substitute lecturer, the lecture today wasn’t very successful as they were trying to teach us directly from Martin’s note without reading over them before. We have been told to expect thatMartin’s absence will be for sometime, this could affect more of our BT lectures as well as our TV Systems and Signals Lectures, as he is our main course leader.
Today’s lecture was quite mismatched as he was just reading from the notes, and explaining the bits we did not understand, this still didn’t give us the full reason / story behind timecode and why we use it. I feel they could have gone into more depth on how it works technically and why its so crucial.
PROJECT: 3D Storytelling Conference0
Over the last week I have had the opportunity to work on the world’s first 3D Storytelling Conference at Ravensbourne. The first couple of day’s I was just assisting with the rigging and gel’ing of over 300 lights through out the building. The design reason behind having to gel so many lights was to colour code each floor with the Conferences colour scheme, and I’m glad to say the end result was worth it, and the building looked amazing as you can see from the picture on the right.
Today and Yesterday, I was asked to help out on the hospitality side of the event, providing assistance to delegates and generally keeping the event running smoothly. Yesterday started off as a very cold morning stood in North Greenwich Tube station, in just a T-Shirt, providing directions towards Ravensbourne. The day got slowly better, as I came in after about 2 hours in the cold, to provide Wi-Fi Assistance up on the 4th floor. This new role gave me a chance to learn more about the Ravensbourne network and how to troubleshoot it’s problems on mac and windows.
Today was a bit better, and defiantly a lot warmer, started out in the Walker space as one of the 4 Hospitality team in there making sure the audience were in and out at the correct times as well as providing general assistance to lost delegates. Working in the Walker Space had a huge advantage over other locations as it meant I could see all the fabulous 3D Content that was on show and see how it was being used to portray released and up and coming stories. The walker space is pictured to the right.
At the end of today, as the delegates were networking over in Union Square, we started the de-rig and had the huge task of turning Ravensbourne back into a working uni.
