Last Monday ever…

Brian came over to my house at 3. The others won’t be able to make it in until after 11 tomorrow so we’ll all get together and attempt to get it bound by then!

Song of the day!


Last Week Approaches…

We seem set to go! Meeting with Brian tomorrow afternoon to finalise a few things. Bring on Tuesday!

Listening to:


Looking into binding costs. We’re not sure how much it will be, but it’s a mighty good feeling to be looking at finishing this!

Song of the day!

Friday Meeting

Met at 10 again. Still tidying up things. Christina’s sister already proof-read it. Looking to get it bound and/or submitted early-hopefully Monday or Tuesday! It is complicated by teh fact that it is a Bank Holiday on Monday so Rich and Christina can’t make it into DCU. We literally have to get anything left over done this weekend and just tidy it on the Tuesday.

Song of the day!

Thursday Meeting

Finished much of the report. Christina is going to forward it to her sister, who is a teacher, for proof-reading.

Last Full Week…

… a scary prospect indeed! Met at ten. Have the second heading for our Research Report allocated. We thankfully have the first bit done. We are going to share the section on Advertising. I am going to focus on the appeal of our project through the medium, Brian is going to explain the ActionScript code and the Music choice, Richard is going to  discuss our contacts and Christina will write about our Garda adventures. While this was abandoned, the influence cannot be ignored. We also have 90 questionnaires done, so it will be a lot easier to achieve our goal of 100. We have “Sláinte” on Youtube now too!

Filmbase Exhibition

Arrived at 10 o clock and began setting up equipment, cables, webcams, information leaflets, etc. By eleven, six screens were displaying Sláinte (two iMacs and four 42”plasma’s screens.) Before the lunchtime crowds had formed, we took shots of the location and the buildings. Then we set up the camera for interviews and shots of the public interacting with our exhibition. We proceeded to ask willing spectators for their opinions and thoughts on the subject matter, editing style, effectiveness and overall feelings about the exhibition. The variety of interviewee demonstrated the diverse personalities we met and the responses underlined our beliefs. Our viewers ranged from media students to transition year boys, band members to businessmen, clergy members to tourists. Each reflecting different understandings of the demonstration. Our display was at the heart of temple bar on a Friday so, with the permission of Filmbase we were allowed to leave the four plasma screens playing all weekend. Being literally 20 feet away from the main entrance to The Button Factory we agreed to film the reactions from the bustling crowds queuing outside the venue waiting to see popular Dublin band Director. We felt this was an ideal opportunity for our target audience to experience our story at a perfect time, just as they were about to socialize for the night.

Thank you, Filmbase!

Song of the day!
