DAY 7 - Archive Edit and Oral Histories

Today we all met back after the Easter break to begin our final phase of the project. Todays session involved only the pupils from Longhill. Between now and July we will be generating the content for the virtual world: Lives at War. So we must create all the material (films, slideshows, audio) for all the objects that can be clicked on as well as the content triggered by the characters that are interacted with. Firstly we looked at the Beta version of the game. Everyone had a chance to explore the world created so far. The participants were really happy to see the avatars that they helped create and had lots of questions, responses and ideas which we will pass on to Corporation Pop. Hannah was also there to answer all their technical questions and help with the editing later (thanks Hannah!) The rest of the day was spent working in small groups making connection between the archive footage and the stories and memories recorded with the older people to create short video sequences with some fantastic results.
