So I have been ditched by Rachael, Tasha & the others after I was apparently “not pulling my weight” in the group, even though I had already fulfilled the first part of my position within a week which was to build a website…. 15,000 lines of code for nothing, well not entirely.
Rather than bitch about it anymore I came up with my own idea from scratch already, and I’ll use everything I made for their group in my project which includes two brand new jQuery scripts I designed and wrote just for the project. Anyways my idea is to do a sort of “what would EVE look in real-life” movie but I also want to create a community around the project, and a project website. The project will be targeting players of EVE Online.
It’s weird, I have had this idea in my head for quite a while and now I’m actually going to be able to do it, better than I had hoped and get credit for it as well, awesome! There is one problem with the whole project and that is that I’ll need to buy a GoPro camera to be able to do the project. They are really small, high-quality HD camcorders designed for extreme sports such as Snowboard, Rollerblading, Skateboarding and stuff like that. But you can also get bicycle handle-bar attachments for it and that’s how I plan to film the biggest part of the project. The other parts of the project I’ll just hire out university camera equipment and shoot it with *sigh* DV Tape, which is always a pain in the ass to work with. SD is the future!
Where was I? Websites. This week I delivered by keynote presentation to the rest of my media class about my ideas for my project, naturally taking a couple of screen captures of the work that I did for *their* group and using it in my own work, why not? I did the work that they said I haven’t done so why should they be able to use it? A large chunk of the codebase in the website is proprietary to Project: Hazel and Squidwolf Syndicate anyways so even if it was ok in the university’s eyes to use it then they’d have to licence it from me and Project: Hazel anyway. Not that I’m bitter I just don’t like people saying I am not doing work or pulling my weight when clearly I am, the evidence is in front of you.
And here is the pretty camera, I also want to buy a chest harness for it to film FINALLY some of the Parkour that I do in Manchester and with Lexi, Adara, Kendrix & Kendra in Conwy when I am over there…speaking of which I haven’t actually done any Parkour at all this year and it’s almost April, sheet!!!! Anyways, plans for today? Lazy day, I am actually ahead for once with Uni work since most of it is done so just gonna chill out & watch True Blood with Bryony.
